  • OBD-II in 1998 Honda CR-V

    I'm trying to discover if my 1998 Honda CR-V has an OBD-II Connector/Interface. Searching the internet is making me confused.

    When i look at the location where the plug is supposed to be, there are 2 blue connectors (2pin and 3pin). Does that mean it's OBD-I ?

    I know US vehicles have OBD-II from 1996 on.

    Can anyone confirm if there is supposed to be an OBD-II connector on my car?

    p.s. my car is a european version

    Hi rdvtx,
    I believe that your car is OBD II comliant.
    There are three service connectors for Honda modern cars: DLC(16-pin), MCIC(3-pin) and MES(2-pin). I think the two connectors what you saw are MCIC and MES. Both of them are on the fuse/relay box, right? Go and check if there is a 16-pin connector near the fuse/relay box.

      Thanx for your reply

      I will check near the fuse box later today, but the 2 and 3 pin connectors are located on the right side behind the center console. I believe that's where the 16-pin connector is supposed to be according to various websites.

      I did find something on that 3 pin connector, and that is that it's for the HDS (Honda Diagnostic System)

      I also found 3 pin to 16 pin OBDII adaptors. But they mostly belong to some expensive scanner. So that probably won't work with the elmscan 5.

      I thought all Honda's from 96 on up were OBDII compliant. I can't find anything on the internet that says otherwise. Very confusing

        Still no luck

        Well, i've been informed that the connector is suppose to be below on the left side of the steering wheel. I've been searching for it, but no luck.
        There is however some kind of 10 pin connector....

        i still find it hard to believe that noone has the same problem as me..unless my vehicle is non standard...

        Can anyone confirm any of this please?

          Hi There !!

          Did you get more information on the honda 3-pin connector ?
          I've got the same (I think) in my Integra Type-R (European 1998 model);

          I managed to connect an ELM interface but it refuses to talk to the
          car (The programs I use give an error like "no connection to ECU -->> Last Error: UNABLE TO CONNECT" )

          I wonder if you managed to get things working .....

          Thanx for reply !!
