Where exactly is the 2016 Honda Civic’s OBD port location?

My car’s check engine light came on, and after reading another article from you guys, I decided to buy an OBD-II scanner. There’s just one problem: I can’t figure out where to plug it in. Is this going to be super obvious? Where exactly is the 2016 Honda Civic’s OBD port location?

The 2016 Honda Civic’s OBD port location can be found underneath the steering wheel and above the pedals, in a cavity hidden away by the trim. You need to get down low to the floor to even see it, and you’ll need a flashlight to spot it.
The OBD port is a white rectangular box with sixteen tiny box-shaped holes, eight per side. It’s the only thing down there your OBD-II scanner can plug into, so it should be pretty easy to find once you generally know where it is.
Be sure you write down whatever codes the OBD-II scanner presents you with. You may want to check out our guide explaining how to read your car’s OBD codes, too. But the Honda Civic has a vast community of super fans, so Googling “2016 Honda Civic code #” will almost always turn up some useful advice.
It might also help to read up on what your check engine warning light means too, if you haven’t already. Your OBD scanner might sometimes turn up some pretty vague information, so having that additional context might prove useful.
