    It's very unlikely to have OBD-II. All cars manufactured and sold in USA had to have it from 1996. I think I'm right in saying Renault weren't selling in that market at that time. (are they now?) The OBD-II plug is standard and the connector must be located within three feet of the driver and must not require any tools to be revealed. Look under the dash and behind ashtrays.
    Theres more information on our website at www.action-replay.co.uk/drivers.

    Hope that helps

        look under the hood There should be a smog tag. It will tell you if you're car is OBD-II certified or OBD-I. Cars made after Jan of 96 and are sold in the US are OBD-II certified. I highly doubt your car is OBD-II.

            this is the reply i got from a company..

            I'm afraid that from our records, the Renault Laguna did not become OBDII/EOBD compliant until 2000/2001.

            I've checked our reference material for the various engine management systems, and unfortunately it looks as though the fault codes on the 1995 Lagunas can only be read using the text readers used by the dealers/garages.

            Sorry I can't be more help.

            Thanks again and best regards,

                Well, you are right that the 440 doesn't have OBD II but it's because of it's age and becuase of the engine. OBD-II wasn't required until 96 in USA and 2001 in Europe. European Volvos built between 96 and 2001 probably DO have it but Renault don't. That's because Volvos were on sale in USA but Renaults weren't.
