If anything there should only be a cap on this plug All you do is plug the OBII into it like a computer plug and your set. I hope this helps.

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.

This is because there is no voltage on pin 16 in the DLC and so the scan tool cannot be powered ON. Most of the scanners have 12 VDC input port by which the scanner can be powered and the car can be scanned.

Obd 2 failed to comunicate with ecm


Check pin 16 of the connector for 12 volts, if no power to the pin then refer to the owners manual for location of the "DLC" fuse.

My obd2 isn't getting power what I do?


Check Pin #16 on the Data Link Connector (DLC) for battery voltage. (See Diagram)

If there is no battery voltage present check the fuse marked "OBD II" in the engine compartment fuse block. It is a 10 Amp fuse. If the fuse is good, repair the circuit between the fuse and pin #16 at the DLC.
If battery voltage is present at Pin 16 at the DLC, check for ground at pin 4 on the DLC. If ground is not present, repair the ground circuit between the DLC and Ground G202 located at the left side of the dash.
HINT: the easiest way to check BOTH of these at the same time is to use paper clips plugged into pin #16 and Pin #4 and connect a light bulb between the two. If the light illuminates brightly, power and ground are both OK.
If no problem with power or ground is detected at the DLC, check the Owner's Manual for your code reader.

On 2002 Honda Truck Odyssey 3.5L MFI SOHC VTEC 6cyl the OBD Diagnostic Link Connector is located under the instrument panel in the driver's side. It is bolted to the kick panel and is gray in color on the 1998 and newer models.

Also refer to Haynes manual in the emissions and engine control system section .

Obd II locations on 1995 saab 9000 cs


In 1995 they made different systems. If it has OBD, then it should be the conventional 16 pin connector, found underneath the drivers steering wheel area. If its the older type, then it has a 2 pin black connector under the center console area. Hope that helps

I need to know how to manually retrieve dtc codes without a scanner.What are the steps of this procedure.I have a 1995 chevy cavalier 2.2 l with a check engine light on.The pin terminal has 16 pins.


This info is from the tech manual.....because you have a 16-pin DTC connector, you have the OBD II system in your car. This is cut and pasted info from the tech manual:

Fig. 2: A Tech 1® , or equivalent scan tool must be used to retrieve codes from 1996–00 models with the 16-pin DLC connector

If you look on your doorjamb and read the sticker, it will tell you the year of your car...and if it was manufactured AFTER a certain month, then you have the 96 model...and from what you are saying, you have a 96 model because it has the 16-pin connector and not the 12-pin connector that the 95 and earlier had.
