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.

Diagnostic connector location


USA? what country?
RHD or LHD (right or left hand drive)?????
all usa cars, the 16pin DLC is less than 1meter from the steering wheel.
yours is behind the ash try(pull it)
some old honda's here, usa have dual ways to get scan codes.
the obd2 way , and obd1 way, RTM
read the FSM. or google for that.
I use ,alldata.com for fast answers, saving google searches and bad answers on forums...

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.
the scan tool you can check all live sensor data.
do that. and win.
1st goggle hit on SCS

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

Diagnostic Connector To read Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's), the test connector for the electronic engine control system must be used. The test connector is more commonly referred to as the Data Link Connector (DLC). On all Jeep models through 1990, the DLC is a 6-pin and a 15-pin connector located under the hood on the right side of the engine compartment. On 1991–93 models, the DLC is located under the hood on the left side of the engine compartment near the powertrain control module. On 1994–98 vehicles, the DLC is located in the passenger compartment, under the driver side dashboard.

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
