Check the auxillary fuse, or cigarette lighter fuse. You should have a description, and location of fuses in your owners manual.

Does the code reader power up? If not, check the fuses. OBD II ports supply power to the code reader. Typically GM uses the cigarette lighter fuse to power the OBD II port on their vehicles (could share a fuse with somthing else, but I doubt it). Good luck!

My service engin soon light is on and i hooked a code reader up to it and it wont read my computer. i checked my fuses and they are fine. what could be wrong with it?


Your code reader needs to be CAN compliant. Controller Area Network.If it is check if your cigarette lighter works. Usually the same fuse.

My diagnostic link will not connect for my 95 jetta. Diagnostics tool gives error and will not read. Meanwhile my check engine light is going on and off. How do I get these codes.


well not sure but sounds to me like the problem is the reader and not the car not saying your reader is bad either I think the problem mey simply be that that is a ueropean did I spell that right? car and they have thier own dang language so to speak most cheap code readers wont do european diagnostics, I ran into that on a co workers volkswagen, my current scanners reads it but its like an 500$ code reader, go to your nearest parts store like kragens or napa etc... and see if they have a courtesy reader that works, ussually no charge or go to a les schwabs if you have one close they ussually will help you just because they are a great custumer service type place. good luck hope this helps.

2 problems.1997 Chevy blazer, OBD2 and fuel gauge wont read


Problem number one. The circuit that powers up your data link connector (where you plug the code reader into) is the cigarette lighter fuse. Check that fuse to make sure it is not blown. Second problem: You more than likely need to replace your instrument panel cluster.

Can't read codes with code reader


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.

OBD2 Link Error comes on when scanner reads.


You may have the wrong code reader. Try another one and see what happens. It could also be a blown fuse, check all your fuses, in particular the one that controls the cigarette lighter.
