I'm trying to locate the OBD2 port on my 2015 Sedona in order to attach a Progressive 'Snapshot' device. Their website shows a photo of one up under the dash. It is not there. Your website shows it just behind the fuse box cover. It is not there, either. Owner's manual is of no help. I am not an idiot, but I cannot locate it anywhere in that area.
