Where is the 1995 Toyota 4Runner’s OBD port location?

I’m having trouble finding the OBD connector port in my 1995 Toyota 4Runner. I’ve looked in all the usual places, but it’s not anywhere inside the cabin that I can find. Can you help?

You’re having trouble locating your 1995
Toyota 4Runner
’s OBD port location is that it’s not actually inside the vehicle! Rather, you’ll find the OBD port inside the engine bay, specifically to the right of the fuse box. While this location may seem out of the norm, it’s not unheard of—especially in older vehicles.
Another quirk about your 1995 4Runner’s OBD port is that it’s got 17 pins. Typical OBD1 and OBD2 scanners have between 12 and 16 connector pins—but in many Toyota vehicles, there are 17 instead. That means you’ll need to invest in a scan tool that’s specifically made to be compatible with your Toyota!
Once you’ve located your 4Runner’s OBD port, you can plug in your scanner to check for
trouble codes
in your vehicle. Depending on what these codes return, you may be able to address the problem yourself—and save a trip to the mechanic! But even if your Toyota needs more professional help, using an OBD tool can still be worthwhile for getting to the bottom of your car troubles.
