I have inherited a 1995 Chrysler Concorde from my parents. It is sweet, with just 66,000 miles on it. I'd like to hook up my INNOVA scan tool for a quick diagnostic check - but am having problems connecting. The Chrysler adapter that came in the scan tool kit is not the proper one. My connector has six blades, in two parallel rows of three - as can be seen in the photo. I really appreciate knowing how to find an OBD1 adapter to fit this. Thanks!

Thanks for photos and this kind offer Bill - but I don’t know how to connect a 15 pin female to the 25 pin male that’s on my Innova scan tool. Can it be done?

you need special OBD 1.5 connector adapter. period. the 93 to 95 are oddball screwy like this. if you just need to check trouble codes you can do it with the CEL in the dash count CEL light blinks. i do it in my 93 all the time. 96 up is normal modern ALDL connector OBD II new modern computer system and software. you can buy connector adapters online rockauto and amazon and so forth.. OBD 1.5 chryselr LH platform cars. 93 to 95

I did try the "key dance" method of retrieving error codes - and it does work. Thanks to all. I also discovered that the Actron CP9690 scanner has the capability of hooking up to a 1995 Chrysler Concorde's/Intrepid's OBD1 connector.

Actron includes in its CP9690 kit ($228) the Chrysler SCI connector - which works on most 1995 Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep vehicles - but NOT on the Concorde/Intrepid/Vision/New Yorker. What's needed is the Chrysler LH connector, which Acton sells as accessory item 70142 ($35 from Summit Racing). See attached photo, which is from the Actron Owners Manual.

INNOVA scan tools has the same Chrysler SCI connector included in its OBD1/2 kit - but it does NOT offer the Chrysler LH connector wire as an accessory.

Also - Actron scan tools are made by Bosch Automotive Services. And here's the photo of their owners manual explaining the two OBD1 connectors for the 1995 Mopar family - that I mentioned earlier.
