Question about 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7

1 Answer

I can not find the OBD port on my 97 Cougar

I know that the port is supposed to be located below the steering column on most cars.  I have looked and looked and can not see it.  Do I have to remove some panels to get to it?  Is there a photo of the location available?

Obd2 connector locations

Hi Curtis, I'm glad to help! OBD 2 reffers to the type of system you have. But if your looking for the diagnostic port. The Data Link Connector is under the dash on the drivers side very close to the knee booster cover below the steering column. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Curtis.
