Where is the 2019 Dodge Charger’s OBD port location?

My 2019 Dodge Charger’s Check Engine light just came on. I can’t get my car to a mechanic until tomorrow, but I’d like to run a test on it myself today with an OBD scanner. Where is the OBD port in a 2019 Charger?

Happy to help! The OBD port location in a 2019
Dodge Charger
is under the dashboard, to the left of the steering wheel.
You might already know that the Onboard Diagnostics II (OBD-II) port monitors your 2019 Dodge Charger’s emissions, engine, and transmission systems performance. This port allows you to access your Charger’s internal computer to run tests and diagnostics.
While Dodge recommends that only authorized service technicians run tests and diagnostics through the OBD port, you can run a test yourself. However, you’ll need an OBD-II scan tool to
read the trouble codes
. Once you have one, follow these steps:
  • Plug the scan tool into your Charger’s OBD port
  • Turn on the scan tool and crank the ignition in your Charger
  • Press “Scan” on the scan tool and follow the directions on its screen
Within a few seconds, the scanner should provide you with a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) to help determine why your vehicle’s Check Engine light came on. All scanners are a little different, so you’ll need to follow your scan tool’s specific instructions to read the code properly.
