    OBDII scanner won't work. You'll either need a very expensive factory-type scanner, or you could learn to use a pulse scanner, which doesn't give you data but only codes that you can count and interpret.

    Here's an example of one that *might* work--Mercedes did a lot of changes in the early 90s, to their data link diagnostic, before they switched over entirely to the OBD-II system most cars use today.

    You might talk to the seller and find out what they know about using this device, or directing you to an instruction book.
