Try unpluging the connector to the crankshaft position sensor and then try the scanner again. i had the same problem on a 1998 cherokee and it turned out to be a small bearing(bb size) had found its way onto the end of the sensor. the scanner was unable to link with the vehicle, gauges would not work nor would the fuel pump. sounds weird i know, but i replaced the sensor and everything was ok.

fsm quote.
The 16-pin On Board Diagnostic version II (OBD-II) compliant Data Link Connector (DLC) is used to access the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) using an OBD-II compliant Data Scan Tool (DST). It is an electrical connector with a gray housing located under the dash, either near the center console, on the passenger side of the vehicle or to the left of the driver side of the vehicle.
The two wire electrical connector with a blue housing next to the DLC is the Service Check Connector (SCS).


we (uSA have 2 DLCs. one is OBD2 and other is SCS.

id use a real scan tool. and not fool with the old winky blinky bs.

I need to plug in the code reader


These vehicles are OBDI (OBD one) compliant not ODBII (OBD two). Therefore, the scanner required need to be specific for Chrysler vehicles. The diagnostic connector is located above the driverside inner-fender under the hood. To retrieve codes only, turn the ignition key ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON and the check engine light will flash the codes.

I am looking for port to use OBD II tool I can not seem to find it. Any idea where I can find it?


On GM and Fords it's on the lower left hand corner of the dashboard, underneath the dash. You may have to look closer to find it.
There may be a plastic cap on it concealing it from view.

It should be there:

Diagnostic Link Connector Fig. 1: The OBD-II compliant Data Link Connector (DLC) is located under the driver's side of the instrument panel 91144p39.jpg
Fig. 2: A Tech 1® , or equivalent scan tool must be used to retrieve codes from the 16-pin DLC connector 88254gc8.gif
These vehicles are equipped with a Data Link Connector (DLC) which is the 16-pin connector that you attach the scan tool to read and/or clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs). The DLC is located under the driver's side of the instrument panel. prev.gif next.gif

Trying to read check engine light on my 95 sunfire it has a obd2 plug but the obd2 tester wont read my codes how can i test this with out going to dealer?


Most consumer available scanners read OBDII on 96 or newer vehicles. If your car does in fact have a OBDII plug then all you need is the software in your scanner to be able to read OBDI codes...a 95 is running OBDI. Advance Auto or Autozone might have a OBDI compliant scanner for free...just tell them you have the OBDII port so they don't take up all your time digging for the adapter!

OBD II Scanner TP180-CAN Error.


if the obd 2 reader won't scan and it will not run it is probably a computer problem could even be a wiring problem to the computer not sure if you can get those checked or bite the bullet and buy one. call the jeep dealer in the morning and ask if they can check a computer to see if it is bad
