Wondering where the OBD-II port is on an Acura? This guide will teach you where to find the OBD-II port on Acura vehicles.
Acura OBD2 port is located under the dashboard.
In most Acuras today, the OBD-II port is located under the dashboard on the driver’s side.
Let’s look at a few examples.

Can’t find the Acura OBD-II port?
On older Acuras, the OBD-II port is behind the coin train in the center console. This was a common location for Acura TL, CL, and TLS vehicles manufactured around 2000. Remove the plastic piece, and you will see the 16-pin OBD-II port.
Around 2003, the port was moved under the dashboard to the right of the steering column. Note that if coins fall behind the coin tray, the port can get jammed, and you won’t be able to access the OBD-II port without removing the loose objects first.
What is the Acura OBD-II port used for?
Not only do you need to know the location of the OBD-II port to diagnose the check engine light, ABS, or airbag, but you also need to access this port to pass state inspection and emission tests. An OBD-II scanner, like the YOUCANIC Full System Scanner, can read and clear fault codes within the whole system of your vehicle.
You can use an Engine Code Reader to diagnose the check engine light. To diagnose other systems, such as ABS or airbags, you need a Multi-System OBD-II Scanner.
