Honda Diagnostic Connector??

I took my car in today to get the code for an engine light that's intermitently coming on, and the dealer "couldn't find the diagnostic connector" and was going to bill me to take the dash apart to find it thinking my navi install made it disappear!!

Does any one have a picture of the connector where the plug in? I pulled the lower dash off, and there is a light blue connector there, but they obviously could see that... but I would like to know exactly where the connector is...

I have a 2006 Civic DX-G R18...

Hey buddy, go to Autozone and buy an Actron OBD II Autoscanner and do it yourself. With thay on hand you can check the code and erase it. I'll do it all the time.

This is a picture with a ScanGauge II plugged into the OBD-II port (Honda calls it the "DLC" for "Diagnostic Link Connector.")

----


And a picture without the cable. The connector on the right is the "DLC." (Oh yeah, the crack is fixed.)

How much is it and is it easy to read the codes? im not very good with electronic stuff. Ill give it a try though. im sure its cause of my Highflow cat cause it just came on a few days ago. I put 500 miles this weekend in my car so i know it still works.

Thanks for the info guys, the connector had just popped about and inch back out of it's socket, reached my hand up in and popped it back in. 30 second fix. Obviously the last time they checked for codes they pushed to hard on the connector and it slipped back out of place.

What a bunch of tards. I'd be pissed I wasted my time with that.

Call those bastards up and let them know how stupid they are for that. How is a FACTORY navigation to blame for a f*cking connector some jackass could not find???

Wow, I'm mad.

Can't those dudes see that Honda stamped the location of the DLC connector in the plastic?
