Computer Code Port Problem

I am unable to get codes as the actual port under the steering column is loose and you can't hook the reader into it. Is there a way to fix this?

Dear loose port have a very simple fix in your hands. Since the data port is already self contained...all you have to do is install some self tapping screws in to the port...make sure to ue the existing holes on the dataport can mount this anywhere you want that will suffice with you......simply zip the self tapping screws anywhere that you can find a nice mounting place for Hope i could help!!!!!!!

It should be under the driver's side of the dash around the steering column. They can take it to most any auto parts store and get the codes read for free.

How do i use use the onboard dianostics on 2003 impala?

You need to plug an OBDII code reader into the diagnostic port - under dash board near steering column - and then retrieve the codes, using the code reader as per owners manual. The codes can then be read from the OBDII reader and looked up in the manual to see what they refer to. Let me know if this helps. Thanks.

Where do I connect a code reader to a 95 eclipse gst

Look under the dash on the drivers side. There should be a port. Some have a plastic or rubber cover on them to keep them clean. It will be the same size as the end of the plug on the reader.
