Welcome to!

Did you scan the ECM for codes? 93 is easy, because you can short the pins of the ALDL connector, to flash the codes on the SES light:

A bit of trivia - 93 has an "ECM" = engine control module. 94 and up has the PCM = powertrain control module, reflecting the addition of the transmission controls to the computer.
