That is for your cigarette lighter/power sockets. Unplug anything in the sockets and check for anything stuck in there shorting them out.

The fuse could be burnt out, the lighter coil could be burnt out, or the hot wire or ground could be loose.

Deville 2000 DLC does not work

Typically the data link connector gets its power from the cigar fuse. On your vehicle there is a fuse in the underhood fuse block labeled ALDL (assembly line data link).

Below is a diagram of the DLC connector pins and what they do, check that pin 16 is always hot with 12 volts. If no voltage is present check the fuse for the cigar lighter or interior lights.2_11_2012_12_30_25_am.gif

No communication from pcm to scan tool no check engine light on no power to term.16 at dlc connecter

Check fuses for power to the dlc. They used to hide it with the cigar lighter. It is best if you pull the fuses instead of using a test light. I have fixed problems just because the fuse lost contact in its holder.
