In 1999 OBDII was only 3 years in to it's evolution and if you have an inexpensive scanner that just possibly may be the case, Here is a really good article if you want to read up on OBDII ...http://www.obdii.com/background.html

since you are running a frank b20V are you using a stock ecu or a chipped one? if its chipped and a software that the code reader can not understand that would be the issue you are having.
