    Pre 1996 vehicles I doubt have OBD-II, and since it's in Australia I dont think it has OBD-II. The connector would be near the steering column usually.

            OBDII is one of many forms diagnositcs. So not quiet sure. (seems to me that it's a US only standard)

              I think some JDM cars have it. IIRC the Soarer has it.

                your scooby will have it
                and you can go one better and download TARI
                www.tari.co.za
                it uses the subaru protocol and is much faster and feature rich than obd

                tari is aimed at WRX but a scoob is a scoob

                    There are issues there, I dont really know. I think the exports to N.america have it. If you really want to know things about a magna i suggest you join the The Australian Magna Club. Some of those guys even work for Mitsubishi and can really help you out alot.

                      Vehicle Interface

                      Indeed, my understanding is that the OBD-II interface is a post-1996 requirement set forth by the U.S. government. As in, all cars from 1996-onward that are sold in the United States are required to conform to a specific set of data standards that is uniform across all auto makers.

                      Other countries might have similar requirements, but these requirements might not be the same standard as OBD-II.

                      But that said, ALL cars sold within the last 10 years will have some kind of data interface-- These days it's a necessary element of diagnosing vehicle problems, and all cars will have them.

                      In fact, I'd bet most cars from the late 80's-onward have some kind of data interface. As noted, it wasn't until 1996 that U.S. law mandated a standardized format, but most cars had something, even if it wasn't OBD-II. My 1990 Geo Prizm GSi hatchback (aka Toyota Corolla clone; a Corolla "Seca" 'down under), for instance, does have a data interface located in the engine bay labeled, "Diagnosis".

                        Nissan have had their own kind of OBD for ages called consult, the main reason I'm building a car PC is to be able to monitor my cars ECU (an 89 300zx). You'll probably find the connector near the hood release, here's some info: http://www.plmsdevelopments.com/consult_if.shtml

                            From SiliconChip Feb 2010... "All new cars sold in Australia from 2006 onwards are required to comply with the Australian Design Rules (ADR) to include On-Board Diag*nostics. This is called OBDII...".

                            The above is "public" and is from A Look At Automotive On-Board Diagnostics.
                            See also An OBDII Interface For A Laptop Computer.

                            Both the above are from Silicon Chip magazine, Issue 257, February 2010.

                            Places like Jaycar often have back copies (and at reduced prices!).

                            I should have a copy somewhere in my shiles of pit.
                            It may give insight as to what cars have OBD in Oz. (And whether it is called UBD = Under-Board Diagnostics. ... down-under ... get it? And before any of you anti-Coriolis hemisphere residents shut pit on my humour, may I quote a recent movie... "Orstralians... they shoot things don't they?"!)

                              Hi monkers,
                              On your car there will be a yellow connector underneath the steering column. It isn't OBD-II either I'm afraid. The only affordable scanner that I know of that works with your car is www.ecudatascan.com

                              Thanks,
                              Rezista
