Check you have an On-Board Diagnostics-II (OBD-II) port

Reveal Engine Connect for LCVs will require that your vehicle has an On-Board Diagnostics-II (OBD-II) port.


The OBD-II is an on-board computer located within a vehicle. It monitors emissions, mileage, speed, and other data about the vehicle. It is connected to the check engine light, which sometimes illuminates when the computer detects a problem. It allows a mechanic or anyone else to read the Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) using a special scan tool.


Where to find the OBD-II port

You can typically find the OBD-II port within two feet of the steering wheel.



What the OBD-II port looks like:



If there’s no OBD-II port

If you can’t find an OBD-II port, this most likely means that your vehicle has a different type of port, for example, a JBUS port. If your vehicle has a JBUS port, please contact customer care and support to determine the availability of Reveal Engine Connect with your vehicle.
