Where is the 2019 Ford Focus OBD port location?

I’ve been having electrical issues in my car, so a friend lent me their OBD scan tool to help. The only problem is, I have no idea where I’m supposed to plug this thing in. Help! Where is the OBD port located in a 2019 Ford Focus?

Ford Focus
OBD port is located in a hidden location, which is probably why you’re having so much trouble finding it! To access the OBD port in Ford Focus models made between 2010 and 2019, follow these steps:
  • Open the driver’s-side door of your vehicle.
  • Locate the dial and storage pocket to the left of your steering wheel, just above the driver’s footrest.
  • Look underneath the dash and above the driver’s footrest (you may have to crouch down to see!)
  • The OBD port should be visible above the driver’s footrest on the lower left-hand side of the vehicle
It’s tucked away like this to stay safely out of sight—and to keep the port from getting dirty or damaged. But it can be difficult to locate and plug your scanner tool into! Hopefully, the steps above have made locating your 2019 Ford Focus OBD port a little easier.
