Please Help!

My car has thrown a cell so I went to have it checked at Autozone. They were unable to read it due to my OBDII connecter will not connect. They think there is a blown fuse or relay. Does anyone even know which fuses and relays to even check? Or any other ideas? Oh, and I also tried Advance and got the same reply.

If its under warranty, take it to the dealership. Otherwise, check the cigarette lighter fuse. The DLC shares its power with that circuit.

The plug in for my OBDII is not sending information like it has no power going to it (meaning the plug), so they think the fuse or relay for it is blown, but I have no idea which fuse the OBDII is linked to. Do you understand now.

should be with the ECU, check the fuses inside the car(located under the dash on the passenger side, center console) and under the hood(driver's side) for any fuse related to an OBD connector or ecu(computer module of some sort)

Did they have the key in the ON position, without the engine running???????

so you just have to check the fuses i pointed out, you should be able to tell if they are blown just by looking at them.
