    you would think so, but i pulled all the trim panel under the column, and cannot find this thing. On a 1996 bronco it is more toward the center of the dash. Do they put covers over the plug sometimes? The F350 is considered a commercial vehicle, and I had someone try to tell me that maybe they didnt have the port? Anyone ever heard of this?

Looked your truck up on an online database, ford calls that port a dlc (data link connector) and says that it is located in the passenger's compartment of the vehicle attached to the instrument panel and is accessible from the driver's seat.

It is OBD II all cars world-wide were required to be OBD II by the 1997 model year. The port should be located under the dash on the drivers side of the car. It looks like a serial port on the back of a home computer.

What is the purpose of the connector to the immediate left of the hood release under the steering wheel of a 4X4 quad cab pickup truck? I could not find anything about it in the user manual.


This is OBD - On - Board -Diagnostic Connector.
On Board Diagnostics, OBD-II, is required on all automobiles and light trucks in the United States from 1996 onward. OBD-II is a set of specifications for monitoring and reporting on engine performance in modern automobiles.
If the Service Engine light is on, then connecting a Code Scanner on OBD Connector, the Code is picked up and the code explanation can be found. If this is a False Code, this can be Cleared with the code scanner, after reading the code.

The airbag is there, what's most likely wrong is the key switch may be going bad. Take your Ranger to a reputable mechanic and ask them to check it...unless you have an OBD II or a multimeter.
