The OBD port on a 2016
Honda CR-V
is located under the steering wheel, on the right-hand side. Look above the gas pedal on the central console, and you should be able to see the 16-pin port that the OBD reader plugs into.
Once you’ve found the port and connected the reader, you’ll be able to see what (if any) error codes your CR-V is generating. But those codes won’t be in plain English—they’ll be a mash-up of nonsensical letters and numbers. From there, you’ll want to record the codes exactly as they’re written, and then you can begin the task of deciphering your
car OBD codes

car repair
that requires a trip to the mechanic. Good luck and happy code-breaking!
