The engine has to be running for the scanner to pull codes out of the car. By the way, the engine must be parked as well; if the car in drive (or driving along the street), it will not run the code. The connector should be below the steering column that mates with your Actron scanner.

There should be an OBD II plug under  the dash on the drivers side. It might have a cover over it so look real close. That actron will give you generic P codes.

    Check your fuses and make sure the one that powers up the diagnostic connector isn't blown.

What is the cause of obd1 20 pins bmw car 740i wont read in daignostic tool or scanner?someone please give some advice...

I answered this already.

You have OBD1 and you are not a BMW technician with their bespoke diagnostic software.

With OBD11, the codes are in general access.

Also, read this.

This standardization simplified diagnosis and the tools that interface with the control module. Sidebar: You'll see a scan tool from both Innova and Actron on this page.
These inexpensive car scanners work on some OBD one and all OBD II cars. However, you have to check the application chart to make sure your cars are on the coverage list before purchasing.

Can I reset my check engine light using an obd 11 connector after completing the specific repair indicated?

If you used this scanner to diagnose the problem in your car then you can use the scanner to reset he check engine light. An alternative is to remove you negative battery cable for 15-20 minutes, or if repair has been successful drive car for 50-150 miles ( not all in one day ), and let the cars computer relearn the correct functioning of new part.

How much does it cost to purchase a OBD2 scanner tool ? my car seems something wrong.i want to fix it. my car is peugeot 307

An obd reader can run you as little as fifty bucks to several hundred I picked up an actron obd 2 from autozone fifty bucks ready to use and has a cd you can download on your computer. It has an erase code setting as well not bad for fifty bucks.

First check the cigarette lighter and the ECM fuse to see if either of these are blown then if their not you will have to check grounds going to the computer.

Check engine light is on and the car seems to run rough at times. Like it can't shift properly.

When the check engine light comes on like that it generates an error code which can be used to diagnose the problem with your car. Take your car to a local mechanic or auto parts store and ask them to use their scanner on your OBD2 port.

The scan will record the DTC (error code(s)) and either the mechanic or auto parts store can tell you what the error code(s) mean and start you down the road to make the repair.
