Where is the OBD connector on a 2010 mercury mariner

Hi Chad,

Here is a follow up for you. The picture provided is from a 2005 with the OBD location. .

Looking at many examples on line from all applications. The majority of these plugs are under the steering column. Either right or left mounted under the dash board.

On some foreign models . Remove the droor between the center console. And it will be mounted on the floor between the seats.

Fare . Well.

Whats causing my battery not to stay charged on my 2006 mercury mariner. I have already checked the alternater and its ok

As long as the alternator is putting out between 13.8v and 14.5 its OK. Load test the battery. The only other thing is a parasitic draw. Usually happens from a light staying on or some other keep alive memory device in the car. Easy way is to take a 12v test light and remove the positive battery terminal. Place the test light between the terminal and the battery with everything off. If the light comes on bright you have a draw. Leave the test light attached and try removing a fuse at a time until it goes out. Once it does you found the circuit to go after.
