Don't feel dumb. I found the thingee first and had to ask what it was.

FYI... The "thingee" is formally called an ALDL or DLC depending on what year you are talking about. The ALDL is the Assembly Line Diagnostic Link and the DLC is the Diagnostic Link Connector.

The ALDL was used on most of GM's car, as shown in the picture above, until about '94 when they slowly started to phase-in the OBD II style connector, DLC. So the 1994 car could of had either the ALDL or DLC. Pre-94 it was almost guaranteed that you would find the ALDL style connector.

Some of the 1994 vehicles that have the newer style DLC are still ODB I compliant, but in 1996 all cars are ODB II compliant and will have the DLC connector. The pin locations in the connector are standardized to meet ODB II regulations. As an example; pin location #2 is for Class 2 communication, #4 and #5 are ground terminals and #16 is battery power all the time. As a word of note, DO NOT USE the ground and power from this connector for any aftermarket accessories.

Also in 1996 the location of the DLC also became standardized in its location, it has to be within a reasonable reach from the drivers seat. Prior to ODB II, the location of the ALDL could have been located anywhere on the vehicle.

I'm with Robert 96. I thought the idea of a forum was to share knowledge.

Paul is a valuable resource to the forum. As he is a new member, people are just realizing that he has a lot to offer. When he talks, I listen. Until recently I didn't know that he was Jarrod's brother.

If it wasn't for Paul, I would still be trying to figure out my fuel pump problem. He laid out everything step by step for me. At the very end of his post, he gave me one last "plumb"--check the grounds. Bingo!

No doubt, sometimes the procedures and step by steps get heavy; but if I had a problem, and knew his number, he would be on my speed dial.

Knowledge is power, and Paul is very knowledgeable which makes him an asset to this community. The man has given up countless hours of his life to be knowledgeable and that knowledge is now part of this community. So why not pick his brain without any extra snide remarks.

Jim, I know you were probably just messing with him but written words have no expression and people can read things the wrong way or differently. Lets just all get along,..... oh yeah, I'd like "World Peace" too LMFAO!

You take it for granted that you are a totally unique person, different from everybody else on Earth. And you understand that everybody else is also unique.
On a most basic level, identical twins are fascinating because they challenge this truth. They are unique people, of course, but they're eerily like each other.
Consider the extreme case of the "Jim twins." Identical twins Jim Lewis and Jim Springer were only four weeks old when they were separated; each infant was taken in by a different adoptive family. At age five, Lewis learned that he had a twin, but he said that the notion never truly "soaked in" until he was 38 years old. Springer learned of his twin sibling at age eight, but both he and his adoptive parents believed the sibling had died. The two were finally reunited at age 39. The similarities the twins shared not only amazed one another, but researchers at the University of Minnesota as well. The very fact that you had twin siblings separated at birth bearing the same name, both 6 feet tall and weighing exactly 180 pounds is pretty incredible. But there's more.
In her book Entwined Lives, Nancy Segal lists the following shared characteristics:
As youngsters, each Jim had a dog named "Toy."
Each Jim had been married two times -- the first wives were both called "Linda" and the second wives were both called "Betty."
One Jim had named his son "James Allan" and the other Jim had named his son "James Alan."
Each twin had driven his light-blue Chevrolet to Pas Grille beach in Florida for family vacations.
Both Jims smoked Salem cigarettes and drank Miller Lite beer.
Both Jims had at one time held part-time posts as sheriffs.
Both were fingernail biters and suffered from migraine headaches.
Each Jim enjoyed leaving love notes to his wife throughout the house.
Of course, before you start thinking about science fiction movies with pod people, the Jims, like other identical twins, are not carbon copies of each other. Some obvious differences were discovered during their participation in the "Minnesota Study of Twins Reared Apart," including:
Each styled his hair differently; one Jim wore it combed straight, hanging down over his forehead (think Beatles circa 1961) and the other Jim wore it combed back and sported sideburns (think Johnny Cash circa 1957, but with longer 'burns).
One Jim more clearly conveyed himself through speech, while the other was better suited to writing.
While both Jims had been married twice, one Jim had taken vows with a third wife (called "Sandy")

Both men own body building gyms.
