Check for12 volts at the obd2 port. I have found that it is tied in with the cigarette lighter fuse.

I have a 1998 contour se 4cyl. When you turn the key on check engine light doesn't come on and the fuel pump doesn't come on.

Check main power feed for the PCM - engine computer . Find free wiring diagrams an electrical distribution charts .At also check the PCM power relay , powers up the engine computer . Relays do go bad . The PCM power relay is located in the under hood fuse / relay box an it is # K163 .

Need dlc wiring diagram

Ok first off if you can wire a multi pin plug to go to your vehicles pcm you should be more than capable to figure this out. How did you determine the other 14 pins? Why is your obd port not There? If it was removed , why? If you have a multi meter use that, if you don't have one or know how to use it I think you should stop now because you can damage the pcm to your vehicle. Just static electricity to the components can damage them beyond repair.
Are you hard wiring right to the pcm or is the connector still there? If so and you are doing this just line up the new leads to the corresponding pin. Use the same connector.

How do I clear the error codes on a 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel?

You will need a hand-held obd2 scanner to clear the codes. Advanced Auto store will do it for free if you have one in your area. Other part stores will also do it for free.
You can disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes and replace it, but it doesn't always work. Sometimes the codes are stored in memory and require the hand-held obd2 to clear them

My car is a ford contour 2000 SE please i need help

You may experience a misfire if your car is noisy on gas,and is shaking on accelaration .
you might have to check on the injection system :injectors and injector wires. also a dirty MAF and a bad spark plug may cause it .
you may wanna get the code from a OBD2 device to know where the malfunction is .
good luck !

Have this checked with another scan tool. Link error is produced when the PCM fails to respond to the scan tool. More times than not this is the PCM failing.

Engine died, everything else normal. plugged obd2 in and it wont even turn the unit on. is the computer freid?

did you turn the ignition key on when you plugged in the obdII code reader? some of them need to get power from the dlc(diagnostic link connector) to work. it is possible the ecm(pcm) has failed but you could also have a bad ground for it. does the engine crank over? when you said everything else is normal, do all the dash lights and gauges come on before you try to start the engine? by the way the ecm/pcm is covered by federal emissions warranty for 8 years or 80k miles(except california).
