500 OBD2 Diagnostic port- location

A simple GUIDE to accessing your 500's OBD Port

This is a 2 minute job.. Requiring no tools
(y)

Pictures are of a UK Right Hand Drive 500

This is the same 312 FIAT platform as the 2013 panda.. port is in the same location

Access:

Slide back drivers seat

Hold the bottom edge of the panel
(Panel with the small tray located between steering wheel and door)
Apply a firm Pulling pressure to the lower edge of the panel

It should unclip easily ( 2 small clips at bottom and 2x tabs at the top)

The Yellow block is the OBD Port :)

It has tapered edges ( base of a pyramid..)

So the cable's plug has to be the correct way around to fit


Once you are finished with the port

(Disconnect any cables)

Offer the panel back to the Dashboard

The 2 x tabs slide under the dashboard

Then the 2x clips will latch into the 2x slots
