Yeah 81 and up had some sort of diagnostic capabilities. This old system in chryslers they still have embedded into their computers today. What you want to do is click the key to on position three times ( Not start ) and on the third time leave the key on. Watch the check engine light or whatever they called it back then, I forget. It will start flashing two digit codes at you. There will be a 1 second hesitation between digits of the first code, and a two second hesitiation between different codes if there are multiple codes in the computer.
