OBD II port not working

OBD II port not working

Postby nerijusj [OP] » Jun 09 2012, 4:43am

Took my truck in for an inspection sticker today. The guy told me his computer can't connect to the OBD for some reason, so he couldn't pass me :? he said it might be a fuse or smth. Truck is 07 NBS Sierra CrewCab w/ 120 K miles. I checked the manual, but could not see anything in fuse section about OBD. I had my buddy hook up his code scanner tool after that, just to see if it'll work. No luck there as well, could not connect with truck. I'm lost at this point.....Any suggestions of what I should check?
I had battery replaced about 7 months ago, and had throttle boddies cleaned and sensor unhooked about the same time as battery. Other than that, except oil changes, I haven't done anything to the truck....electrical related.

I haven't checked to see what fuse exactly, but normally a fuse for either the cig lighter, aux outlet or radio tie into the OBD ports power as well.

Thanks a lot! I'll try and give a look soon. Weird, everything else works, all cig lighter outlets and everything else.....just not the obd port. If it was a shared fuse, smth wouldn't work too, would it?

My truck is a 2000,so may be different.The cig lighter is on the right side,of the 3 ports under the little cover in the dash.The other 2 to the left are power ports,the cig lighter does not work in those 2.Different style port. The service manual says pin 16 is the power on the obd port,the schematic shows it is tied to the cig lighter port,the one on the right.It is hot all the time,where the other 2 power ports are only hot with key on.
Yours is an 06,so may be different.Maybe a place to start tho. Good luck!!
