    Where is OBD2 connector in '05 Ody?

    I's a bit strange but I cannot find an OBDII connector in my 05 Odyssey EX. I know its somewhere close the dash, but I just cant see it anywhere. If you could describe where to look, It would be appreciated...

    In almost every vehicle, it's just below the steering column.

    Yes, it is under the lower edge of the dash, just to the right of the steering column, facing downward. If you look there, you cannot miss it.

    OK, thank you all for help. Now I can see it. I was looking further back and behind dashboard, and it was much closer than I expected LOL.

    ODB2 location on 2006

    I have an 06 Ody. Is the ODB2 connector in the same location as the 05?

    I searched all through the owners manual and find no mention of the ODB2. Is this by design? Is this to hopefully make you take it back to the dealer rather than do any work yourself?

    Appreciate any info.

    OBDII connector is a service connector not an operator function. Check under dash near steering column.

    All posts made by me are in reference to the gen 2 Odyssey.

    It can be an operator function, when you want to plug in a ScanGauge or similar.

    Thumbs up

    Thank you "Jerry O". I found mine. I thought it would be like my Ford Ranger facing out rather than down.

    I'ts a shame Honda cannot have the vehicle give you the codes like the Cadillac does. No need for a code reader.

    I suppose that is simply one of the differences between a Honda and a Caddy!

    Thanks guys. I have learned a lot from this forum.
