I haven't seen a Vetronix Tech 1 tool in over 20 years. Buying this system is like buying a ColecoVision instead of a PlayStation5. Why did you purchase such a old outdated and primitive tool for, Nostalgia? I would quit before you get to deep into this system. It was not very good back in the day & its just about useless now. Currently there is a endless amount of modern fully featured tools that are far far far far far better & much much much more advance than a prehistoric Tech 1 tool.

With that said:
If you must this is what you will need...ready here we go.

1, For your engine will need a cartridge for Isuzu Motors. If this cartridge does not exist you will need a cartridge for Asian Vehicle.
2, For transmission you will need the GM Transmission cartridge
3, For ABS you will need a Bendix cartridge.
4, For your BCM (if equipped) you will need a cartridge for GM Vehicle

There no way I can remember the part numbers on a obsolete system that hasn't been used in 20+ years. I doubt anyone else here has ever used one. Dam, I feel old now. Luckily the cartridges you need will be labeled on the cartridge itself, no part number required. Before you purchase you will also need to see which tech system you bought. Tech 1A is not compatible with 1B & 1C. but 1C is compatible will all.

I almost forgot...And of course this is if I remember correctly, For emissions system diagnostic you will need a MCS cartridge to use in conjunction with the engine cartridge. This also will requires the special 16 to 12 pin connector cable.....

While I didn't have any personal experience with Vetronix, I agree with Shawn (with exception of the transmission module, 2.6 Rodeos ONLY came with the 5 speed manual). There are a number of inexpensive diagnostic OBDII plug in scanners that will fill your needs. Autozone has one for around 50.00. Dennis
1991 LS Trooper 2.8 V6 5 speed conversion (Sold)
1989 LS Spacecab 2.6 5 speed 4x4 manual hubs, Rodeo torsion bars, extended shackles, 2" lift, K&N air filter (drop in), dump bed conversion, burgundy interior change, warn brush bar. Engine is bored .020 oversize and upgraded to 1994 pistons, head and EFI system.
Previously owned: 1987 Trooper II LS, 1989 Trooper (parts only), 1994 Trooper 3.2 Auto, 1997 Rodeo 2.6 5 speed, 1993 shortbed pickup 2.3 (project - sold) 1992 Rodeo 4x4 LS (parts car, devoured by Spacecab needs) plus some 70 plus other non Isuzu vehicles over the years. 1994 Amigo devoured to provide head and EFI system.
Heavily damaged by engine compartment fire while driving on March 24th 2018, condemned by insurance company and taken on March 30th 2018 :cry:.
