    Default Where is OBDII (on-board-diagnostics) slot?

    Good afternoon,
    Where is OBDII (on-board-diagnostics) slot located? I am from continental Europe, accordingly my Vectra is right-hand drive, if that matters.
    Previously I drove Astra G, it had its OBDII slot right under the hand-brake lever, but it does not seem to be the case with Vectra C.

    Regards,
    Karlis Brils,
    Vectra GTS V6 3.2.

    The plug in diagnostic port is located under the ashtry but it is not OBDII as the preface lift is half canbus and the facelift is full canbus. I think the older OBD units don't work, unless some else knows different.

    My CDTi is prefacelift (Jan 2005) but I have been advised because the steering has thumbnail scrolls and not 6 buttons, its a full canbus.

    Your'e quite right, I was just using that as a general rule of thumb. Either way OBD doesn't work.

    The thing under the ashtray is an OBD2 slot or DLC.
    Don't think that the CanBus has something to do about it (except that it is the way to acces it); you're probably referring to the fact that the enhanced code is GM/vehicle-specific so that you need Tech2 an not an ordinary OBD-reader...

    (By the way OBD was an innovation of GM and later on the USA obliged all manyfacturers who wanted to sell cars on the American market to have an OBD what became the OBD II-standard)

    Yeah ... Canbus is one of several protocols used with OBDII.

    CAN bus is not a protocol, it is the infrastructure.

    SAE J1939 is an example of a protocol

    ISO 15765 would have been a better example as its the CAN protocol

    Is that the CAN protocol that VX use?

    I couldn't think of a ISO CAN protocol, at the time.
    CAN = Controller Area Network, so cannot be a protocol in it's own right.
