    Would someone please give me a reference to where the OBDII connector is located? Getting ready to install ScanGuageII. Thanks.

    Below your right knee at the bottom of the dash - looks a little like a parallel port. When I was looking for it I was looking for something smaller. It would have helped if I had taken the cord out of the plastic bag first and looked at it. :p

    Yep, you'll see a crease down between where the center "bulge" starts and the driver's column. It's just under there behind the gray plastic.

    Depends on the vehicle. Gen I: below your left knee, sticking out of a port in the lower trim panel. Gen II: beneath/behind the lower trim panel, by your right knee.

    Many scantools come with a dongle that's effectively a longish plug,
    which tends to hang down in front of where you foot is on the
    go-pedal. Makes driving and datalogging a little more interesting.
    The SG has a more low-profile plug..
