How to get my obd plug to read on a 1996 honda accord?

In some of the older model cars the OBD was powered by the cigarette lighter fuse lead, Check this first. If that does' not work check your reader in a comparable vehicle and check to see if your reader is a Type 1 plug or Type 2. And if all else fails go to any Advance Auto parts and they will check it for you to see if your plug is reading!

I need to plug in the code reader

These vehicles are OBDI (OBD one) compliant not ODBII (OBD two). Therefore, the scanner required need to be specific for Chrysler vehicles. The diagnostic connector is located above the driverside inner-fender under the hood. To retrieve codes only, turn the ignition key ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON and the check engine light will flash the codes.

My 2004 Tahoe LT was put on a diagnostic machine and did not give any codes. The tech said that there was no power coming from my diagnostic plug.

I'm thinking Marcos is on the right track. In todays world with all the gadgets such as phones and GPS's, they tend to get plugged into the cigarette lighter. These cigarette lighter circuits are not able to handle the amps our gadgets put out which in turn blows the fuse which just happens to be the same circuit as the power for your data link connector plug. Below is a fuse layout diagram for the fuse panel located under the hood of the vehicle in the engine compartment. I have marked the fuse you need to check (it should be a 15 amp fuse). If the fuse is good then you may want to check directly at the data link connector on the left side under the dash where the tech who tried to get codes for you plugged in his scanner. Below the fuse diagram is a picture of the data link connector. The top of the DLC is wider then the bottom (like a triangle kinda). I have marked the terminal of that connector that should have the power (lower, bottom part of the "triangle". the narrow not wide). That terminal which should have an orange wire is you power wire. If you have power, you may be looking at a ground proplem or if it doesn't have power and the fuse is good, you will need to locate the open wire to find your power loss. On a personal note, if it is just the fuse that's blown, I don't think I would take my vehicle back to that same tech. Pretty much every tech with a little knowledge should know that this is the first place to look if not getting popwer at the DLC. Hope this helped you out.....

Knocking engine

1. Plug in your OBD II (on-board diagnostics) scanner to your OBD II port, which is usually located near the steering column. Many models have the OBD II port on the left side of the under-console of the driver's side dash, near the door. If your car was manufactured prior to the 1994 production year, you may need to use an OBD I translator, which plugs into your OBD II scanner.

2. Turn on your scanner, which may require you to turn your car to the "Acc" position, and read the codes that appear. Use a manual that comes with the scanner to translate the codes.

3. Replace any sensors that come up in the OBD II scan. Multiple sensors work together in order to help fire and time the ignition process for the engine's combustion. The knock sensor particularly helps to sense the engine vibration patterns and regulate the timing in accordance, and may account for excessive engine vibration if the sensor is failed. You may need to remove several components and engine parts in order to access specific sensors, depending on your make, model and engine design. You may also need to raise your vehicle on car ramps in order to access the underside of the engine to remove and replace certain sensors.

4. Replace engine and transmission mounts if needed. This process can vary from vehicle to vehicle, however it usually involves using one or two floor jacks to support the weight of the engine while unbolting one or more engine mounts. Each engine mount also has its own insulator and rubber stopper materials, which are critical to the engine mount's functioning. Failed engine mounts do not necessarily lead to damaging other engine components and is not a fix critical to the proper functioning of your car engine.

5. Inspect your harmonic balancer, which is connected to the crankshaft via a drive belt and serves to reduce and absorb some of the vibrations caused by the crankshaft itself. Loosen and remove the drive belt by turning the belt tensioner bolt. Unbolt the harmonic balancer with a torque wrench and inspect the insulator component, which should be in good shape. Replace the harmonic balancer if the insulator is cracked or showing signs of wear and tear, or if it is missing.

Where do i plug in a code reader on a 1993 lincoln town car?

flyersqod, I believe that you have an OBD II code reader which is what is being sold to the public. OBD II starts with vehicles that were manufactured in 1996 and later and it mandated that all vehicles have a universal plug-in adapter to accommodate the scanners. Pre-1996 vehicles had a different plug-in for their respective makes. GM, Ford and Chrysler as well as all the foreign models all had different plug-ins. This is the case with your 1993 Town Car. The plug-in for your vehicle is located in the engine compartment and has two plugs on it. This cannot be accessed by an OBD II reader. If you want your vehicle scanned you will have to take it somewhere that has an OBD I scanner. Good luck with this.
