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 I am looking for port - 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

Look near the driver's area under the dash for a an OBD-II port and borrow a scan tool from Autozone (they do tool rentals, cheaper than buying one). Pulling the codes will give you an idea of what is going on, you can then work from there.

Where is the OBD port located in a toyota hiace 1998 with 1KZ engine and is it a OBD II?

It is OBD II all cars world-wide were required to be OBD II by the 1997 model year. The port should be located under the dash on the drivers side of the car. It looks like a serial port on the back of a home computer.

1996 is the first year that OBD II was mandated. Some cars will have the OBD II port but not be OBD II compliant. Does it have the 12 pin port or the 16 pin port?

How I reset the 'check engine light' on 2009 mercury mariner?

There are 2 ways to do this. The first is to disconnect the battery and let it sit for 60 seconds. The other is to use a scan tool to clear the codes. The light will come back if you haven't corrected the problem though. I would recommend going to an autozone and getting them to scan and find the code for you. You may need to replace a component in your emissions system. I hope this helps.

Just bought a 97 Kia Sephia RS - OBD-II Problem

that usually means that the fuse for the DLC port is blown. if you check your owners manual look for fuses labeled AUX, CIGAR, DATA, DLC. it is usually one of those that the DLC is fused through. i encounter this frequently as i do emissions inspections. check the fuses and you should find the culprit there!
