I have a check engine light on, 2005 Z71 Suburban. I had the code read twice at one of the zone's and they cleared it. Now it's been plugged into twice at different stores and they tell me the port is dead. Does it have a fuse?

John, 2plus2 is correct. On most GM's, the OBD2 port is powered by the cig lighter fuse or sometimes called the courtesy fuse. The first thing I look for when I can't communicate with the vehicle is a blown fuse in the fuse box.

Hope this helps!!

If you think education is difficult, try being stupid.

I don't understand why they power it off that circuit. Probably the one fuse that pops the most of them all and they decide to run the power feed for the obd port. . . .
