04 Jeep Wrangler under dash

Recently bought a used 04 Jeep Sahara and under the dash is an electrical plug that I wasn't sure it's used for. It's on the driver's far left side. I wasn't able to get an owner's manual and the ones online don't refer to it. Thx for any responses!

sounds like the OBDII diagnostic port.
if you need your codes read they hook the scanner up there.
The smog guy hooks up the machine there to get the VIN and stuff too.

It's not what you have. It's what you do with what you have

oh that should be it then since it appears to be a connector for a computer or something. It's got like 15 or 20 inputs that the connector would attach to - sound like what you're thinking of?

Yep.


This is the Jeep's (1996 & later) OBDII DLC data plug, compatible with any onboard diagnostic reader.

Talking

yup - that's the one. Hey, your Jeep almost looks like mine. You just have a softtop but that's next on my list.

Yes, I have an OEM softop, But I also have a Bestop two piece hard top and a Bestop Safari top. I love the safari for about 3 months a year. In hind site I'd not pay extra for the two piece hardtop. If I was to have only 2 tops, it would be hard top and bikini.
