Pic of ODBII Port

Hi, can someone post a picture of what the ODB port next to the drivers panel looks like on their X5 (2012). Mine has two connectors. One works with my scanner but the other one doesn't (not sure what that's for either). However the working one has broken off so is just hanging there. I can't see how it should be mounted - hence the pic needed.

thanks Paul.

Looking up in my 2007. Mine has broken off in the meantime too. That easily happens when you plug it in and the get in or out of the car. You kick it loose.

Thanks, although mine looks different - I have a little hatch in the side panel next the drivers legs. In there are two ODB connectors. One is fixed and the other is broken. Did you take the panel off for this pic?

Perhaps yours was broken and they spliced a generic one into the wiring. Replacing the socket on the BMW one requires a special tool to get the pins out. Trace the wiring up and see what you find.

Mine looks like this. There is a broken lug at the bottom and the functioning connector is tucked in at the side, but does not seem to fit in any logical position.

PS they both appear to be standard connectors but only one of them makes my reader power up - the one that's in place has a lot of pins missing.

Yes some panels were off. Not especially for you . This is the old “victory” pic from tracking down a high battery drain warning.
