If you are talking about the OBDII connector for a scanner or code reader, and the Dodge is a 1996 or newer, it should be under the steering column.

SOURCE: We are unable to communicate with the emissions computer

Yes it is the purple connector. Any generic OBD II scan tool should be able to pull up P codes. Sometimes you will get an enhanced DTC and no code will be given. If there is a shop in your area with a Launch X431 scan tool I'd go to them and have it scanned. Any Auto Zone can scan it for you to. Also I have never had a problem scanning any VW with an aftermarket stereo. Is your MIL on? If it isn't on I don't know why they would want to run a scan for the safety inspection.

SOURCE: Dlc location

try unpluging the connector to the crankshaft position sensor and then try the scanner again. i had the same problem on a 1998 cherokee and it turned out to be a small bearing(bb size) had found its way onto the end of the sensor. the scanner was unable to link with the vehicle, gauges would not work nor would the fuel pump. sounds weird i know, but i replaced the sensor and everything was ok.

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)

Diagnostic Connector To read Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's), the test connector for the electronic engine control system must be used. The test connector is more commonly referred to as the Data Link Connector (DLC). On all Jeep models through 1990, the DLC is a 6-pin and a 15-pin connector located under the hood on the right side of the engine compartment. On 1991–93 models, the DLC is located under the hood on the left side of the engine compartment near the powertrain control module. On 1994–98 vehicles, the DLC is located in the passenger compartment, under the driver side dashboard.

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.
