I'm wondering which scan tool you purchased? My brother in law was just telling me about one you can plug up and read it via bluetooth with an app on your smartphone. I may invest in one of these myself since my increased emissions light popped on the other day but went back out shortly thereafter. I also have some kind of Passenger Restraint System malfunction and from what I understand this can throw about 3 different codes and in order to pinpoint exactly what's causing it I need a code reader. As for where the OBD port is, it should be under the steering column. I read that when you take the cover off it may appear there is nothing there to plug into, because there is an additional cover that needs to be removed from the piece you actually plug the reader into.
