On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) Diagnostic Link Connector (DLC) Location in 1999 ford Ranger

I have already looked behind the kick panels on both the driver and passenger sides, under the dash, behind the glove box, in the center console, and even under the seats. Outside I have looked thoroughly throughout the engine compartment. I found 1 oddly shaped shaped shaped 5 pin (very wide female connectors, too wide for the OBD II) marked "ECC Diagnostic". Does anybody out there in the world have any idea where Ford superior design genius's hid the diagnostic connector, an ECM, ECU etc. datalink connector. OR, failing all else, doe's anybody know how to manually pull the codes by using a jumper and reading the flashing "Check engine" light.

SOURCE: I have a check engine light ON on my 1992 Subaru Loyale.

The black is a ground connection electrical. Usually they get pulled out by someone messing with dash like radio or something.

SOURCE: Did not pass state inspection (vehicle)

First the fault codes,
U110C is No Fuel Level Bus Message
U0155 is No Cluster Bus Message.
Unfortunatly you have to be able to communicate with the instrument cluster with your scanner to diagnoise and I do not think an aftermarket scanner can do this.

some old honda's here, usa have dual ways to get scan codes.
the obd2 way , and obd1 way, RTM
read the FSM. or google for that.
I use ,alldata.com for fast answers, saving google searches and bad answers on forums...

fsm quote.
The 16-pin On Board Diagnostic version II (OBD-II) compliant Data Link Connector (DLC) is used to access the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) using an OBD-II compliant Data Scan Tool (DST). It is an electrical connector with a gray housing located under the dash, either near the center console, on the passenger side of the vehicle or to the left of the driver side of the vehicle.
The two wire electrical connector with a blue housing next to the DLC is the Service Check Connector (SCS).


we (uSA have 2 DLCs. one is OBD2 and other is SCS.

id use a real scan tool. and not fool with the old winky blinky bs.
the scan tool you can check all live sensor data.
do that. and win.

I am looking for port to use OBD II tool I can not seem to find it. Any idea where I can find it?


On GM and Fords it's on the lower left hand corner of the dashboard, underneath the dash. You may have to look closer to find it.
There may be a plastic cap on it concealing it from view.

It should be there:

Diagnostic Link Connector Fig. 1: The OBD-II compliant Data Link Connector (DLC) is located under the driver's side of the instrument panel 91144p39.jpg
Fig. 2: A Tech 1® , or equivalent scan tool must be used to retrieve codes from the 16-pin DLC connector 88254gc8.gif
These vehicles are equipped with a Data Link Connector (DLC) which is the 16-pin connector that you attach the scan tool to read and/or clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs). The DLC is located under the driver's side of the instrument panel. prev.gif next.gif

Where do i find the dlc plug


PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE!!!! Data Link Connector OBD II Systems use a standardized test connector called the Data Link Connector (DLC). It is located beneath the instrument panel somewhere between the left end of the instrument panel and 12 inches (300 mm) past the vehicle centerline.
The DLC is located out of the sight of vehicle passengers, but should be easily viewable by a technician from a kneeling position outside the vehicle. The DLC is rectangular in design, capable of accommodating up to 16 terminals and has keying features to allow for easy connection. The DCL and Scan Tool connector have latching features that ensure the Scan Tool connector will remain mated when properly connected. Some common uses of the Scan Tool are:
  • To identify and clear any stored diagnostic trouble codes
  • To read the serial data stream information (e.g., PID data)
  • To perform Enhanced Diagnostic Tests (bi-directional Scan Tool)

I need to know where diagnostic connection is on a 1994 ford lincoln


With the advent of OBD-II, the Federal Government has mandated the location of the DLC (Data Link Connector) .The Data Link Connector is located in the passenger compartment. It is attached to the instrument panel and accessible from the driver's seat. The DLC is rectangular in design and capable of allowing access to 16 terminals. The connector has keying features that allow easy connection. The test equipment and the DLC have a latching feature to ensure a good mated connection. The Scan tool uses the DLC as a pathway to communicate with the on board computer system. If the DLC is not located under the dash, the vehicle is using OBD-I. This is a slightly different management system in its operation and diagnosis. Look for DLC under the hood near the left front headlight on the Town Car and Mark VII, near the right side firewall on the Continental.
