My 1995 Eurovan has a check engine light coming on. I have a standard OBD II reader but this vehicle requires a OBD I reader. I see they sell OBD I to OBD II adapters online but I have read that with these VW's I won't be able to pull codes even with the adapter. Can anyone tell me if the adapter will give me the ability to read the code it is throwing?

    try your local auto store, they should be able to read the codes for you (usually for free) – agentp Sep 25 '17 at 12:15

Usually on OBD 1 cars you can jump a pin and read the codes via a blinking light of some sort, refer to your van manual to find what pins to jump(with a paper clip) and then depending on the blinks the manual should have code read outs from that
