As far as the article is concerned, you have surely noticed that the OBD port has been mentioned on several occasions. Some of you may have no idea what this port is; much less know where to locate it inside the car. To give you an idea, we will explain it in a very simple way…
What is known as the OBD system (which in English comes to mean On Board Diagnostic) and which is Spanish translates as “On Board Diagnosis” (or more or less that’s where it goes). What this system does is check each of the different sensors that are inside the vehicle. System which has been implemented since the eighties and since then it has become an indispensable tool that helps enormously in the work of mechanics.
Knowing that it is the OBD system, we only have to answer the question of where can I find its port inside my car? Well, this varies depending on the car model of course. In some it is below the driver’s steering wheel, in other cases near the cup holder that the driver has on his side. And on rare occasions where the passenger seat is. It’s just a matter of exploring the interior of your transport a bit until you can find the happy port.
