    Thanks,

    I didn't want to cut into the housing for the OBDII connection for some wires so I thought this cable would work great for my intentions. also, I looked around for a OBDII cable end and the cheapest I could find a female was about 24.00. I can buy the whole cable prewired as an extension to connect to my current OBDII cable for 10.00 more. I figured I'd just save myself the hassle and buy the cable outright.....

    Well, i got outbid.....does anyone know where I can get a female OBDII socket that I can wire for my car? The only one I've found in this country is 24. buckaroos....that's a lot ridiculous for a blank socket...anyone seen any others?

    Thanks

    Kick A**

    Thank you Scarab!

    Now, if I could only find the male 20 pin diagnostic connector, I did find one in another country but it was going to cost me 40.00 or so delivered.

    I know this may not be on track with the exact same topic as this thread, but it close. I have an older BMW 1988 325 ic and have that same 20 pin connector. Is there a way that I can determine what pin outs I may use to extract data from the connector? How would one go about that?

    Just seeing that connector made me think of this.
