DRB II scan tool

Have any of you people have used a drbII scan tool?

I have the chilton repair manual and it says that in 1990 and earlier models this tool is needed to get the trouble codes from the ecu.

I cant find this tool in any place in the internet.

Prior to 1998 (I think) you can get the error codes as blink codes out of the "check Engine" light. I assume this works on a 1990 Jeep as well....

For those who are wondering, a 1990 Jeep will require a DRB-II. No amount of playing with the ignition ON-Off-ON-Off-ON will not get codes.

1991 started with the OBD-I

1984-1986 V6 can do the ignition thing to get the codes.

I have a DRBII in my garage, you will also need the Jeep Eagle adapter for the DRBII in order to diagnose the 87-90 jeeps. There are no codes either, it only does live time data display.
