Try another scan tool on this vehicle to confirm that it is a problem with the port. Then have a technician comfirm that the computer isn't at fault before replacing the port connector.

OBS port 95 rodeo

my guess, you are in uSA
with 1995 rodeo. with unstated engine
and wont to use a 1996 scan tool on a 1995 car usa
OBD2 will not work on your 95
the 95 uses custom tools, read $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
95 is OBD2
in canada even 97 fails. for obd2 started there in 1998;.

why not say what you are attempting, so we can be on same page.

speaking of pages.
here is the OBD1 flash page

Obd2 scan tool don't comunicate with the pcm, what to do?

Carlos, see if there is a fuse blown to the OBD2 port, the obd port some time shares with other accessories/things like cigarette lighter.
Check all fuses, the OBD will not work if fuse is blown.

Once a week my 98 wrangler jeep starts up and revs to high and theengine check light stays on for day then goes back to normal any ideas vic legg

all scan tools sold scan this engine (unstated size) via the OBD2 port (USA) at knees.
all do even $10 scan tools. (ask)
or get it serviced,.
you can fix cars with out tools, meters and gauge sets.
you can buy tools 1 by one, as needed, like we do, all DIY do that.
or fail.

FUSE check engine light

If you are trying to reset the light, use an obd code reader. Autozone can do this for free. If you are wanting to try resetting by powering it off, look for the ECM fuse in the fuse block. Or you can disconnect the battery for 5 minutes.

Suzuki liana diagnostic port location

pretend we are blind.
what country.??
06, Liana.
what engine, Gas or Diesel???
there are 2 systems. OBD1 and OBD2
the hood stickers usually tell you which it is. (obd2 certified)
if car is OBD2 cert then any cheap but new scan tool works.
if car is USA car the OBD2 port is near the knees, 16pins
the spec, call out 1meter from steering shaft center. USA spec.
OBD2 is a USA spec. so...... where are you......

see here the car and all the variants.
see why we dont know, until you say so.

83-1 permanent dtc ecm relation failure

sounds like an OBD2 comm failure, mine (i have 10) all show comm loss. but.. can be blown fuses killing OBD2 DLC pin 16 (not 12v)
also, of your car is newer and the scan tool is older, it can fail.
newer scan tools work on all cars here. in usa. all, obd2 1996 and newer. (i build oBD2 gauges and can go endless here... comms...)

no Pxxxx code?
what scanner?, there are many. some are junk.
is this a USA car, when posting nobody knows,
in fact, cars up to 2006 world wide, don't have OBD2 ECUs/PCMs.
not posting where car was 1st sold , is a failure.
if you are in usa, we can access the online FSM and look this up.
we use.

lets back up. (a real scan tool not a funky useless code reader)
you, make sure pin 16 is hot.
you plug in scan tool (newer) if car has CAN buss? the tool too must be CAN BUSS CERTIFIED.?
you key on. not started.
you push the scan button, no comm fails, you see TPS throttle angle.
and ECT engine temp and air temp and RPM is 0
all that not started enigne yet, if you cant get there, wrong car, wrong tool.
if the engine runs, the tool must scan, if not pin 16 dead.
or wrong scan tool.
