I have an Actron CP9135 OBD-II reader. It works perfectly fine on my 1997 Ford product Mercury Grand Marquis.
When I plug it into the seemingly compatible port on my 1997 Ford Econoline conversion van, nothing whatsoever displays on the Actron. I tried no key, key-on engine-off, key-on engine-on. Still nothing.
The Data Link connector looks exactly the same on both vehicles. The Actron connector plugs onto both exaclty the same, with the same snugness and depth.
I can't find any info on whether my 1997 ford van is OBD-II compliant on paper or the web. I assume it is as I understand all 1996 and later vehicles were supposed to be OBD-II compliant.
Any idea what's going on and why my Actron OBD-II scanner won't read anything on my 1997 Ford Econoline van?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thnks guys, it was a blown fuse.
