the reason why its not reading it because its an obd1 ecu and it needs to read an obd2 ecu...

ended up going to autozone and they were able to check the codes...

does that mean the machine at the state ref was not working? or do their machines do a whole different thing?

If an autozone scanner works on your car then the ref just didnt want to deal with you. If thats the case, rent the scanner and take it to the ref and ask them why there hightech scanner doesnt work when a piece of **** autozone one does. If thats the only reason why they failed you you could take them to court and if you win, you never have to worry about a state ref again (for that car).
