Where to plug in the autoscanner

Depends on the vehicle manufacturer, where they put it? The socket is an OBD 2 like the diagram. Usually inside the vehicle near the fuse box could be under the dash or behind a panel, cup holder, ash tray, or between the front seats, might say in the handbook, if not ask at a dealership. a86768ca-d626-4168-88f3-398e775fc9e8.gif

How do i replace the 12 volt power outlet in my 2005 f150

Both start with removing the center trim panel.

To do this open the ash tray / cup holder ( flow through console / column shifter ) and pull on the lower corners. The center trim panel is held on with 6 or 8 spring clips. They are hard to pull out the 1st time, it takes a bit of pulling.

Be careful while pulling on the center trim panel, the HVAC panel is attached to it ( the cables are somewhat long ) and the Passenger airbag light ( at the top ) has a short harness.
With the center panel off :
Center Power point - remove the wire, and the plastic trim ring on the back needs to be removed, and the power point is pulled through the front.
The dash power point, the tabs can be released by reaching in the center opening, and pull it through the dash, then release the wiring connector.

Radio removal 1995 dodge ram pickup

Removal of the original unit is quite simple. Just remove the two phillips screws holding the cup holder in place and pull out the cup holder. Remove the two screws holding the ash tray in place and remove the ash tray. The entire front bezel on the dashboard can now be removed by grasping and pulling forward. It is held in just with clips at this point. Remove the leads from the auxilliary plug and cigar lighter. Using a socket set and a 10 mm socket, remove the two 10 mm bolts holding the head unit in place. Slide the head unit forward, disconnect the two flat wire connectors, the antenae, and the ground connection (requires 10 mm socket as well). The head unit can now be removed. Replacement head units direct from Dodge are VERY expensive as are repaired units which I haven't had very good luck with. Your best option is to try and find a used unit for a good price. Fitting an aftermarket system will be pricy and tricky as the original system utilized an external amplifier located in the panel behind the drivers seat (some models have other amp locations) and a component type speaker system. Good Luck!
