This is OBD - On - Board -Diagnostic Connector.
On Board Diagnostics, OBD-II, is required on all automobiles and light trucks in the United States from 1996 onward. OBD-II is a set of specifications for monitoring and reporting on engine performance in modern automobiles.
If the Service Engine light is on, then connecting a Code Scanner on OBD Connector, the Code is picked up and the code explanation can be found. If this is a False Code, this can be Cleared with the code scanner, after reading the code.

Where is hood latch on Nissan 350Z? I found the release under the steering wheel, but can't find feel hood latch.


From where the release for the steering wheel is, move your hand left and down along the dash, the latch is there with a picture of the car with hood open on it, pull that latch towards you and the hood is opened.

2000 Dodge Dakota vibration while driving


sound like the u-joints in the driveshaft. Lay under the truck and where the u-joints are try moving the driveshaft up and down. If it moves then the u-joints are bed. This will cause a tremendous vibration under a load and the faster it spins it will smooth out.

1998 ford f250 brake lights and turn signals quit working checked all fuses in cab and under hood center brake light works


Check for a broken wire or loose connection at the multifunction switch. This can occur especially often if you use tilt steering. there is a few screws under the steering column shroud, unscrew the tilt wheel knob, you may vice grips to get it to unscrew. remove the shroud and check wiring and connections, remove the multifunction switch and make sure there are no wires loose in the connectors. If you have a wiring diagram you can jump the circuits at the connector, if no loose anything and you get lights to go on by jumping the switch, replace the multifunction switch (that's the lever on the left of the steering wheel, in case you were wondering)

Cant find OBD II port


looked your truck up on an online database, ford calls that port a dlc (data link connector) and says that it is located in the passenger's compartment of the vehicle attached to the instrument panel and is accessible from the driver's seat.
