Try looking under the dash next to the console LH side for a 16 pin data link or over near the door for a 2 pin plug that you short out the pins to turn on the MIL light to read the flashes.

Where is the obd port located


All cars manufactured for sale in the US since 1996 have an OBDII diagnostic port as mandated by federal law. This connector must be within 3 feet of the steering wheel and must not require tools to access.
The port can be black or white. This is an example of what it looks like:
obd_002-580-90.jpg
Normally, this port is located just under the dashboard above the gas or brake pedal. It can normally be located by simply looking under the dashboard or running your hand along the bottom edge of the dashboard until you "bump" into the connector.
Here are some examples of where your port may be located:
2005_nissan_xterra_obd_connector.jpg 16923d1121331241-1998-jeep-grand-cherokee-uk-obd-connector.jpg
There are other instances where the connector is behind a cover panel to make its appearance more appealing. In these cases it's necessary to open that panel to gain access to the OBDII port.
Here are some examples of it behind a cover:

fsm quote.
The 16-pin On Board Diagnostic version II (OBD-II) compliant Data Link Connector (DLC) is used to access the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) using an OBD-II compliant Data Scan Tool (DST). It is an electrical connector with a gray housing located under the dash, either near the center console, on the passenger side of the vehicle or to the left of the driver side of the vehicle.
The two wire electrical connector with a blue housing next to the DLC is the Service Check Connector (SCS).


we (uSA have 2 DLCs. one is OBD2 and other is SCS.

id use a real scan tool. and not fool with the old winky blinky bs.

I am looking for port to use OBD II tool I can not seem to find it. Any idea where I can find it?


On GM and Fords it's on the lower left hand corner of the dashboard, underneath the dash. You may have to look closer to find it.
There may be a plastic cap on it concealing it from view.

It should be there:

Diagnostic Link Connector Fig. 1: The OBD-II compliant Data Link Connector (DLC) is located under the driver's side of the instrument panel 91144p39.jpg
Fig. 2: A Tech 1® , or equivalent scan tool must be used to retrieve codes from the 16-pin DLC connector 88254gc8.gif
These vehicles are equipped with a Data Link Connector (DLC) which is the 16-pin connector that you attach the scan tool to read and/or clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs). The DLC is located under the driver's side of the instrument panel. prev.gif next.gif

Looking for the OBDll connector for a 1996 Toyota Corolla ll Windy Model with a1N-T, 1453 cc turbo diesel engine. Steering wheel is on the passenger side of the car. Need this info for a friend. He has...


Look under the dash near where the steering wheel is usually located (on the driver's side).

Was this vehicle marketed in the U.S.?
1996-97 MODELS NOTE: These models require the use of the Toyota's hand held scan tool or an equivalent OBD II compliant scan tool.
  1. Prepare the scan tool according to the manufacturers instructions.
  2. Connect the OBD II scan tool, to the DLC3 under the instrument panel. The DLC3 on the 1996-97 models is located on the drivers side under the dash 88274pa2.jpg
    NOTE: When the diagnosis system is switched from the normal mode to the check mode, it erases all Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) and freeze frame data recorded. Before switching modes, always check the DTC and freeze frame data and write them down.
  3. Turn the ignition switch to the ON and switch the OBD II scan tool switch on.
  4. Use the OBD II scan tool to check the DTC and freeze frame data. Write them down.
  5. Compare the codes found to the applicable diagnostic code chart. If necessary, refer to the individual component tests in this section. If the component tests are OK, test the wire harness and connectors for shorts, opens and poor connections.

Where do i find the dlc plug


PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE!!!! Data Link Connector OBD II Systems use a standardized test connector called the Data Link Connector (DLC). It is located beneath the instrument panel somewhere between the left end of the instrument panel and 12 inches (300 mm) past the vehicle centerline.
The DLC is located out of the sight of vehicle passengers, but should be easily viewable by a technician from a kneeling position outside the vehicle. The DLC is rectangular in design, capable of accommodating up to 16 terminals and has keying features to allow for easy connection. The DCL and Scan Tool connector have latching features that ensure the Scan Tool connector will remain mated when properly connected. Some common uses of the Scan Tool are:
  • To identify and clear any stored diagnostic trouble codes
  • To read the serial data stream information (e.g., PID data)
  • To perform Enhanced Diagnostic Tests (bi-directional Scan Tool)

The data link connector is a dedicated diagnostic scan tool connector. It is located in the engine compartment against the fire wall. It links the engine controller to the Diagnostic Readout Box (DRBII) scan tool or the Mopar Diagnostic System (MDS), or any other Chrysler-compatible diagnostic scan tool.
