Non OBDII compliant
I have a 2000 Impala, 3.8L, V-6, that is not shifting and it has a service engine light on. The trouble is that I can't retrieve trouble codes from it. The emissions sticker does not list it as OBDII compliant. I believe that the car may have manufactured in Canada. Autozone, Oreillys and Advance have all tried and their scanners will not link. What can I do to retrieve the codes, other than take it to a dealer? I really can't afford that.

Honestly, Canadian built or not, the car is OBD2 compliant. IIRC all vehicles since 1994 are.
Regardless of the top info, I would investigate the integrity of your OBD2 port. Clearly there is a connection issue on its BUS or with the PCM control unit itself.

What are the scanners coming up with ? Might what to check fuse's. On my '96 the cig. lighter & the comm port are the same fuse. scanner couldn't link because the fuse was blown.
Always remember that your final destination... is the same as everyone elses.
