OBD-II connection not working

OBD-II connection not working

Postby hamiltonfighter [OP] » January 26th 2014, 3:10am

I stopped by Autozone to have a check engine light read. The Autozone worker hooked up the reader and it wouldn't show any messages.

I might go to another location and see if maybe it was just the worker not knowing what he was doing.

Does our van have a way to display the check engine messages?

Check your fuses, most likely the power point fuse. We had a Cavalier that the OBDII had no power to and that was the problem.

Where is the power point fuse? Is it in the fuse box under the dash? Is there a label next to it?
