My 1997 chevy blazer failed inspection because the obd is malfunctioning. I'm trying to find the location of the on board computer to see if I can swap it out myself. I would really like to stay away from...

The OBDII / OBD2 connector is 18" from the center of the center console.


You will need to purchase an OBDII scanner/reader to read these codes.

The alternative method is get a OBD2 cable and a laptop + software to pull the codes.

An inexpensive OBD2/CAN bus reader around $75-$120 is a good start.

Did the inspector mention anything about drive cycle or lack of stored readyness fields?

Please email on why it fail. You can append more info by click the button on TOP RIGHT of this page.

You need to check the fuel press, the test port in on the rail, also run a code test on the ECM/PCM, this checks for trouble codes and also lets you know the computer is working if it tests ok.

It sounds to me as though you may have an alternator concern and when it is running all it using is the battery and will die when the battery runs down.I would charge the battery up and start the truck then using a digital volt meter and take a voltage reading at the battery with the lights on and the engine running it should read between 13.1 volts and 15 volts if it doesnt you probably need an alternator.
Let me know
