Can't pull codes on 97 F350

Three meters, from $50 to $250 can't pull a code from my truck even though the check engine light is on. I'm wondering if being a 97 it isn't fully OBDII compliant. One of the meters says there are 124 codes to pull but doesn't pull a single one.

Does anyone else have a 97 that they can pull codes from? What meter make and model do you use?

Does anyone know of a certain type of meter that will pull from this early OBDII truck?

Thanks in advance,

No it's not OBDII. Heck, not OBD. It's a CAN system.

Or you can buy a Superchips 1705 MAX tuner. Never had a problem pulling codes on mine with that. Happen to know a guy who's selling one over in the classifieds right now....and the added performance isn't half bad either

But seriously, A.E. with the ford enhanced bundle is the way to go as far as scanning.
