Hi, I was wondering where is the OBD port in a UK RHD 2001 P38 ? I have been looking on the internet and there seems to be some confusion. Some sites say that it is under a large trim panel, under the steering wheel, and other say that it is somewhere under the passenger side trim panel under the glove box. Any help would be appreciated.
Also, I found what appears to be a 9 pin serial plug connection sitting behind the passenger side headlight, and I wonder whether anyone might know what it is for. Could it be an extension to the original OBD port, for access from the engine bay ? It has a small, thin wire from the back of the plug and connected to the large master plug, which, in turn, is plugged into what I believe is the diesel engine ECU.
The plug behind the headlight also has a flexi-tube cable protector from the back of the plug and going to what looks to be a screw-in electrical connection cap under the air intake duct and on the side of the engine block.
Perhaps someone might know what it could be. Could it be the OBD port plug ? As I asked earlier in the post, where otherwise, is the OBD plug, under the steering wheel, or in the passenger side footwell ?
Any advice would be appreciated.
