Communication established not working

If your trying to retireve codes using the OBD II port and it says something like "unable to communicate" then you need to check the fuse. On most vehicles it is the same fuse as the one for a cigarette lighter or aux power port. If the fuse is good then the PCM might be failing.

97 Jetta GL 2.0 –connected a Code Reader (OBDII compatible) but unable to establish any communication-everything else works as normal- Is there a main fuse which protects the diagnostic link thanks for...

This is what I do, first is to connect my OBDII reader, pull ashtray out, on right side of ashtray, slide front panel out, connect OBDII reader, turn ignition to on, do not start, press read on OBDII, should be able to establish communication. If not then probably connection is bad somewhere from connector to the Digifant Control Unit (brain), there is no fuse in between.

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.
