WRONG!  after 1995 the cars went to OBD 2, OBD 1 is the system that allows the "stomp test" For V12 cars the stomp is 6 times for the 2nd bank of cylinders # 7 through # 12.

For 6 cylinder cars and 8 cylinder cars the 5 stomps is correct.

It may take 10 attempts to get the system to display the codes as the timing between the stomps is critical, not too fast but not too slow!  and push all the way  then release the pedal allowing A FULL RETURN as the 1st stomp.

OBD2 cars will never display this without a reader used.
