The rectangular 16 pin OBD-II port should be inside. It will generally be found in the driver’s under-dash area, or on the forward end of the passenger side of the transmission tunnel. It is covered by flip-top plastic cover engraved with the word “OBD”. In some cases there is a second removable “trim cover” over the actual plug assembly. Remove the “trim cover” if necessary, and open the flip-top cover to gain access to the OBD-II diagnostic port.

Hope this helps, I could be wrong!!


I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
