Check that the obd2 port has a good ground and the power pin is powered. also make sure the car is running before you plug it in. some readers only work while engine is running

I have no fuses blown under hood or in fuse panel on dash side code scanner will not power up or work at all

With key in on do you have all dash warning lamps on, and the check engine light is on? If that's all okay, and still nothing on the scanner, it is possible the wiring to the diagnostic port got messed up. You would need a wiring diagram to really see the wires involved. By the way what year is your vehicle? All after 1996 have the same obd-2 connector. There were some variations leading up to the '96 model year. I recall some dismayed GM owners of '94 & '95 models, especially luxury class models, that had obd-2 connectors and obd-1 diagnostics, same as all the early '90's GM vehicles. Back then, GM and Chrysler were always a step ahead of Ford, beginning in the early '80's. ! enough nostalgia, did u figure it out with your scanner?

Connecting code scanner to 2007 chry 300 & 95 dodge 1/2 ton ram

Most obd2 connection ports are under the driver side dash and can be visible without removing any panels. On some chrysler Daimler vehicles you do have to remove a panel to access this service port. If its not located under the dash then it will be located under the hood on the driver side and be capped off and labeled obd2 scan tool service. Simply plug your wire in with the key on and the engine not running and read the codes from your vehicles on board computer/ecm/bcm. Hope this helps. Good luck.
