EVO /2012> OBD2 diagnostic port access

Nice easy one this


So the Engine Management Light (EML) aka Multifunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) / OBD light is on, Or you have FES/ MES and the leads and want to turn off the service indicator, Reset the Oil degradation counter, do a Proxy alignment or dabble with the other advanced functions........

You have all the leads / plugs/ computer but where is the Port....


First open the little cubby by the drivers right knee......

Hinge it downwards

Locate the OBD2 plug and remove the cover you can see the OBD plug has a yellow band down its centre....

Then plug in your device ensuring it is the correct way round

I can confirm my 2012 was the same.

Getting the panel out of the way..you need to remove keys from ignition.
