Where is the Kia Carnival’s OBD port location?

I inherited an OBD scanner from my dad and want to give it a test run on my malfunctioning minivan. I’m just not sure where it’s supposed to plug in. Where is the OBD port in a Kia Carnival?

You’ll find the OBD port in a
Kia Carnival
above the brake pedal in the driver’s footwell. Here’s a more detailed breakdown:
  • Open the driver’s side door of your vehicle
  • Locate your gas and brake pedals in the driver’s footwell
  • Look to the top, left-hand side of your brake pedal (you may have to crouch down to see!)
The OBD connector will look like a vertical black rectangle. Once you’ve found the port in your vehicle, you can plug in your OBD tool and scan for
trouble codes
Something to keep in mind is that, if you drive an older version of the Carnival (such as a model made in the late 1990s or early 2000s), the OBD port may be in a different location. In older models, the OBD connector is stashed along with the fuses and relays in your minivan and is only compatible with a non-standard, Kia-specific scanner tool.
