OBD port location - can't find it
« on: July 15, 2018, 06:09:38 PM »
my 1995 Fleetwood Bounder has the check engine light on and I was trying to find the OBD connector but not seeing it anywhere.  Is there one? Does anybody know where it is?

I don't know if a 1995 model has an OBD port, but those ports generally are under the dash near the steering wheel.

As it is most likely a 1994 Chassis I suspect OBD1 if any at all

On your Ford F53 460, open dog house, look forward on the left side, about opposite of the gas peddle. You'll see the OBD 1 connector pluged into a protective shell.
If you need a picture or help with the codes, check in at this link on IRV2.com.

There is a gentleman called subford. He is the most knowledgeable person I know when it comes to the old Ford F53 460 chassis. The man is brilliant with all things concerning the EEC-IV computer.

The 1996 OBDII  requirement only applied to cars and light trucks. The Ford F53 stripped chassis didn't get it until the 1999 model year.
