Question about Cars & Trucks
My father has a 2002 Toyota Camry. The check engine light came on. I have taken it to several shops. They get no response when plugged in. I went and bout an OBD2 reader. I also get no response. Yet my mother has the exact same car, they bought them together, and i have no problem plugging it and reading her car with the OBD2 reader. I would really like to be able to access the computer info on dads car... any suggestions?
Check that the data link ( 16 pin connection under the dash) is connected correctly to the ECM . You may have to take it to a Toyota dealer service centre to have the connection problem fixed first. It could be in the wiring., connections or the ECM itself.

Open the hood. Locate a small grey box by the firewall, roughly 1.5 x 1.5 inches. It has a cap that will lift up, but it will not come off. Under the cap, located the terminals E1 and Te1. Using a standard paper clip, "jump" E1 and Te1 together. Turn the key on. Obnserve the check engine light; it will flash, pause and flash again. Count the flashes.
Examples: 2 flashes/pause/4 flashes is code "24"
1 flash/pause/5 flashes is code "15"
Get the codes & get that info back to me so that I will be able to assist you with your issue further.

you most likley have a blown fuse. the fuse for the connector and cig lighter are usually on the same circuit . if you have a owner manuel check and see which fuse is for the obd/cig lighter. if you dont have a manuel then check every fuse in the box and see if you find a blown one. the plug whare the scanner connects is what powers the scanner so if you cant find a blown fuse then you know youre not getting power to the plug for some reason.

you cannot fit these lights without first getting manufacturer approval ,a certificate of homoglonation .Then only an authorised main dealer with the appropiate tax number is allowed to fit them .Then the vehicle has to be taken for a new mechanical vehicle inspection so the paperwork can be changed to show that these lights are fitted and they conform to EEC regulations .

under the steering colum near fuse box, brake pedal, gas pedal area. and if you don't know where to hook it up at, odds are you don't know how to fix the problem with your $100 scan tool. Put your nose in some books and learn before you try. That or find someone who will walk you through it.
