Where is the 1998 Honda CR-V’s OBD port located?

I am hoping to get some basic information about my used car, but I’m not sure where to find the OBD port. How can I find the OBD port in my 1998 Honda CR-V?

The 1998 Honda CR-V has an OBD port located on the passenger’s side of the vehicle. It will be close to the center of your vehicle below your car’s dashboard, built into the vehicle’s center console.
However, this port won’t be visible without removing some panels (and possibly some small sections of carpet) on your vehicle. Once you remove the plastic dashboard panels and peel up the carpet on the passenger’s side of your vehicle, you should see a small, square9, blue connector.
You can connect your OBD device to this port to read car OBD codes your engine, exhaust system, and electrical system. If you’re unsure about removing panels and pieces of carpet in your vehicle, it’s best to talk to a professional about accessing your OBD port.
There are a lot of benefits to getting information about your vehicle from your OBD port, but you can cause some cosmetic damage to your car if you remove the panels or carpet incorrectly. As such, discussing your options with a car repair professional is a safe bet for newbies and experienced vehicle owners alike.
