Where is the obd fuse located in the fuse box for a 2007 toyota camry ?


I don't believe there is a fuse for the OBD connector. The connector is powered through the ignition switch.

Looking for the OBDll connector for a 1996 Toyota Corolla ll Windy Model with a1N-T, 1453 cc turbo diesel engine. Steering wheel is on the passenger side of the car. Need this info for a friend. He has...


Look under the dash near where the steering wheel is usually located (on the driver's side).

Was this vehicle marketed in the U.S.?
1996-97 MODELS NOTE: These models require the use of the Toyota's hand held scan tool or an equivalent OBD II compliant scan tool.
  1. Prepare the scan tool according to the manufacturers instructions.
  2. Connect the OBD II scan tool, to the DLC3 under the instrument panel. The DLC3 on the 1996-97 models is located on the drivers side under the dash 88274pa2.jpg
    NOTE: When the diagnosis system is switched from the normal mode to the check mode, it erases all Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) and freeze frame data recorded. Before switching modes, always check the DTC and freeze frame data and write them down.
  3. Turn the ignition switch to the ON and switch the OBD II scan tool switch on.
  4. Use the OBD II scan tool to check the DTC and freeze frame data. Write them down.
  5. Compare the codes found to the applicable diagnostic code chart. If necessary, refer to the individual component tests in this section. If the component tests are OK, test the wire harness and connectors for shorts, opens and poor connections.

Need information on checking for no communication for ecm to scan tool. 2000 Oldsmobile Alero 3.4 L.


If the car is running fairly normally but just won't talk to the scan tool then what I usually find is that there is a blown fuse that powers one of the pins in the OBD-II scan tool connector. I don't have a diagram of which fuse it might be but that's where I would start looking. My scan tool gives me the dreaded "no data" message anytime one of these has lost power to the connector. You could have other issues including a faulty ECM but it's pretty rare for that to happen.

How to change a throttle position sensor on a 94 ford f150 5.0 4x4


How to Replace a Throttle Position Sensor

Parts:
1. Throttle Position Sensor - $ 55.44

Tools:
1. Scan Tool
2. Screwdriver
3. Multimeter

Procedure:
1. Locate the OBD data link connector (DLC). Refer to your owner’s manual for the specific location.
  • Tip: The OBD-I data link connector is usually located in the engine compartment near the battery or the fuse box. The OBD-II connector (post 1995 cars) is usually located beneath the instument panel next to the steering column.
2. Turn your key to the“ON” position. Do not start the engine.

3. Plug your scan tool into the OBD data link connector. Turn on the scan tool and select the appropriate steps to read the diagnostic trouble code (DTC).

Scanner plugged into OBD-II data link connector.
  • Tip: The OBD-II diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is a 5 character alphanumeric code. The first digit is a letter that indicates the component group, the second digit is OBD mandated or manufacturer specfic, the third digit is a subgroup, and the fourth and fifth digits define the component and basic problem.
  • 4. Locate the throttle position sensor.

DLC communications with OBD not possible


OBD II connector troubleshooting 101

I had the same problem with my 2000 Elantra. the OBD II connector pins get squished and won't make cantact with the scan tool, therefore no connection. the solution is to bend the pins back so they will connect to the scan tool.


FIRST! check your lighter and radio fuses (which you have already done). If possible, make sure your scan tool is working properly, try it on another car. If it is functioning properly, remove the 2 screws holding the obd II connector to the dash. Look for obvious signs of corrosion, damage, or stuff that shouln't be in the connector (rocks, gum, etc.) clean the connector with a good electronics cleaner (I use the CRC stuff), you can usually find it at you local parts store, radio shack, or even wal mart. hose down the inside of the connector thouroughly and allow time to dry.

check for voltage between 4 (gnd) & 16 (+vcc) then 5(gnd) and 16(+vcc) with the ignition on the voltage should be between 12v-16v (these pins may be different on other cars, look for an OBD II connector pinout diagram if your car is different). If this voltage is not present at either pin, the problem is not the connector. check your fuses and wiring. if this voltage is present at both pins continue.

Here's what I did. with the connector free from the dash, you can see the back of the connector where the wires enter the connector. on either side of the connector there may be a white clip. pop both of them off. you should be able to push a small screwdriver or pick in that space to pull the pins back out towards the outside of the connector. do one at a time so you can tell if the pin has moved back out into position. do this for all of the pins. Try to connect. if still no luck try again to push out the pins and reconnect.

If your connection is restored, replace the clips, screw it back into the dash. Return your car to the lousy DMV where they will proceed to tell you something else is wrong which they neglected to tell you on your first 10 visits!! :-)

Stuff thats good to know:
some auto parts stores will connect their OBD II scan tool to you car for free. auto zone is one place
some times the computer will need to reset to restore a connection to the scan tool. to do this simply cycle the ignition off (wait a few seconds) then on again.
online auction places are a excellent resource for USB to OBD II connectors to connect your laptop to your car. there is lots of OBD II diagnostic freeware out there to go with your newly purchased connector.

Good Luck
