I am about to purchase one myself. (Did not get one for Christmas like I asked for)

Look under the dash and see if you can find the connector. My 2002 S10 has the connector located there. From what I understand, the OBDII will work on 1996 and newer vehicles. I am looking at the Actron CP9179 scanner for the OBDII. It is about $181, but it has more features and options than the basic $29 dollar one which is very limited. If you just need to read codes, most auto parts stores will do that for you free (so they can sell you parts).

Hope that helps.

Werd is the obd conection


where is my DLC, ok, easy. well kinda....
weird?, no not weird, OLD,. old cars dont have OBD2, sorry.
NO COUNTRY stated, you must state that,
1993 is not a OBD2 car mostly. in any country.
that means it's OBD1 so mfg, puts the DLC where ever it wanted
and did. (huge variances)

toy was and early bird to OBD2, see? inUSA !
http://www.obdii.com/connector.html#dates

IF not OBD2
then , its FLASH codes. (easy rules)
TE1 and E1 of the Data Link Connector (DLC) 1 or 2.
now where would that be. answer

real OBD2 connector (USA cars) is just to right of steering
column,at dash edges, TOY cALLS this DLC3 (96 camry)

Speedometer dont work


which engine, 1MZ? what? the engine dictates the ECU the ECU dictates what scan tool works this year.
what country, not stating that ,makes all answers wrong.
so as always, i post from USA , answers


The speedo on 95 series cars have a VSS,
and if it is dead, the PCM will be glowing the ECU and very unhappy,

so l mr. ABS 100x angry...too.. Ignore ABS for now;.
as they say first things, first.
you turn key , to on, CEL glows, (must) means PCM happy.(self checks)
you start car, the CEL goes out and stays out , does it? no i bet.
you drive, and CEL comes on , you insert the diagnostic, jumper (non IMZ engine)
and bingo CEL flashes out code for VSS dead?

code 9, code 42? others?
post your DTC error code and we CAN fix it.
OBD1: engines.
http://www.troublecodes.net/toyota/

ok , id fix the speedometer first.
sure would.
bad cable? did you test and check the cable yet?
i looked up your car at alldata.com so could you.
VSS is manditory for many ECU/PCM /TCM and ABS functions.
mandatory.
your car i think is USA car, is it? , and if YES< then is OBD2 compliant?
see list of cars below that are, (early OBD2)
so if it is , scan it after driving say 30 miles, or 5miles fast.
got P0500 that is a dead VSS.
fix speedo. now.
any scan tool made for OBd2 works on IMZ engine, here, state side.


data: OBD2: cars.
1994 vehicles equipped with the early OBD II systems include Buick Regal 3800 V6, Corvette, Lexus ES3000, Toyota Camry (1MZ-FE 3.0L V6) and T100 pickup (3RZ-FE 2.7L four), Ford Thunderbird & Cougar 4.6L V8, and Mustang 3.8L V6.

1995 vehicles with OBDII include Chevy/GMC S, T-Series pickups, Blazer and Jimmy 4.3L V6, Ford Contour & Mercury Mystique 2.0L four & 2.6L V6, Chrysler Neon, Cirrus and Dodge Stratus, Eagle Talon 2.0L DOHC (nonturbo), and Nissan Maxima and 240 SX.

I am trying to do an engine diagnostic on my 1995 Nissan Pathfinder and don't know how. all local shops do not have equipment to check. it is pre-OBDII. is there a way to check without buying expensive...


it is OBDI and any shop worth going to will have what is needed to do the job.
Or goto your local parts store and buy a scan tool for about $50.

Check engine ligt came on my 97 Explorer as soon as it did it runs like a miss is this a limp in mode and how do I check the engine codes. I know Dodge not Ford.


just bring it to a local advance auto or auto zone they will hook up a code reader this will point you in the right direction it may be an O2 sensor MAF sensor in need of a tune up (plugs, wires, PCV, Air cleaner etc.)
