The 92 was an OBD1 car, and the connector is located on the side of the fuse block which sits above your left foot as you are sitting in the car, the fuse block has a black plastic cover, and the connector on the side has a soft rubber boot.

OBD1 doesn't give you near the data OBDII does. I use a pocket logger on mine, it is a cable and software which you can put on a palm pilot, check out www.pocketlogger.com. Yes, I know, they call it a first gen DSM logger, but it works fine in the first gen 3000GT and stealth. for platform specific help with your 3000gt, you may want to check out the forums over on 3si.org

Not sure about the Diamante (after all, this started out a 3000gt question) but the OBDII ports on the later year 3000GTs were located under the dash on the OTHER side of the steering column, above your right knee.

Cheers,
Scott

The code readers have changed along with the standards relating to the depth of info provided by the ECUs; you will need to use your model year to shop one and do shop it; the prices of these things vary greatly and the simplest will do what the typical owner needs done; read codes. You'll find numerous vendors on line and they range (overall) from ~$20 to $250+ US.

I've not seen any connectors that were not located on the driver's half of the car; they are a flattened 'D' configuration, have always been mounted horizontally and have two rows of pins. Some are concealed under a slip-off plastic cap.

SOURCE: can't read codes with code reader

you most likley have a blown fuse. the fuse for the connector and cig lighter are usually on the same circuit . if you have a owner manuel check and see which fuse is for the obd/cig lighter. if you dont have a manuel then check every fuse in the box and see if you find a blown one. the plug whare the scanner connects is what powers the scanner so if you cant find a blown fuse then you know youre not getting power to the plug for some reason.

Any OBD2 reader should work. the OBD connector is under the dash just forward of where the drivers knees would be. I think most ALL cars are within 18" of the steering wheel.

Go local Autozone and ask to read OBD error code for free.
or buy any cheap code reader/scanner for now and future use ($30 to $1000. $30 is enough)
It's called "OBD scanner" or "OBD code reader".

Other than that, nobody can tell you what was/is wrong with your car.
BTW, OBD error codes are different by manufacture and year/model.
after you buy code reader, google it with your year/make/model.
or Autozone reader may tell you in plain English (other than P0125, B0432, etc)

How to read obd code suzuki aerio


There should be two OBD ports on this vehicle, one under the steering wheel the other is located by the computer unit under the hood. Attach an OBD reader or OBD II Reader (available to be borrowed from most car part stores) and read the code.

ODBC-2 code reader is used to read the codes and reset the codes once read. This web site will help you troubleshoot the codes http://www.obd-codes.com/trouble_codes . The reader can be purchased for usually less than paying a auto mechanic to read the codes and perform the reset. The plug to read the codes is usually under the driver side dash.

How do i read the check engine codes on a 95 cutlass supreme


If it is OBD-1 you can use a paper clip to jumper two terminals in the test plug under the dash, and then watch the check engine light flash. If it is OBD-2 you need a code reader or scanner.
Most auto parts stores will read OBD-2 systems for free in hopes of selling you some parts.

Where do i plug in a code reader on a 1993 lincoln town car?


flyersqod, I believe that you have an OBD II code reader which is what is being sold to the public. OBD II starts with vehicles that were manufactured in 1996 and later and it mandated that all vehicles have a universal plug-in adapter to accommodate the scanners. Pre-1996 vehicles had a different plug-in for their respective makes. GM, Ford and Chrysler as well as all the foreign models all had different plug-ins. This is the case with your 1993 Town Car. The plug-in for your vehicle is located in the engine compartment and has two plugs on it. This cannot be accessed by an OBD II reader. If you want your vehicle scanned you will have to take it somewhere that has an OBD I scanner. Good luck with this.

Ssei is it an obd 1 or an obd 2, my engine lite is on but I get no reading from an obd 2 and a conflick of wich 2 terminals to cross for an obd 1


94 and 95 bonneville's have a odb1 system but the plug under the dash for the code reader is for odb2/.
you have to get a code reader that will read odb1 and odb2 with a manufacture special plug to read them.
also the computer in the 94-95 are only used in those 2 years.
new one at most auto parts stores is about $100.00
cheap compared to other years.
if you have lots of codes and it runs good but just turns itself off all the time it's the computer.
I had to replace 2 so far one in a 94 and one in a 95.

Where do you plug in the code reader on 1995 aurora?


First of all, it's located below the steering wheel underneath the dash.
If it was late 1995 the OBD-II may be on the vehicle, but I think not. Usually '96 and above can be read by an OBD-II scanner.

OBD-I also had a connector in the same place, but uses a different scan tool.

good luck in reading codes.
