Onboard Diagnostic Connector

Thinking about purchasing a Scangauge 2 Diagnostic Monitor. It plugs into the OnBoard Diagnostic connector which is installed in most vehicles after 1996. Anyone know exactly where this connector is on a 2006 RAV.

I emailed ScanGauge to verify compatibility with the '06 Rav4. Looking at the incompatibility list, it would be a shame not to have all functions working. How quick they reply may determine if I buy one or not.

2006 RAV4 uses CAN standard for OBD2 communication.
My BR3 will not work :-(

Scanguage2 works fine in my RAV4. Only Map and Fuelpressure are not reported. I am in the process of adjusting the parameters for more accuracy mainly for the MPG thingie.

Love it! Great to see the difference between going 80 MPH or 70 MPH. I set it up to the new tank of gas and I will see how accurate it is when filling up the RAV4 again.

Anyway, works fine with the new RAV4.

Under the dash just to the left side of the steering column. There's also a fuse panel just above it.

It connects to the OBDII port under the steering wheel on the left side. I took the plastic cover of and run the wire around the steering wheel. Now it is sitting on the in front of the dials, covering up the gear selection though. Not sure if I like it there but it was the easiest and since I am using it a big time, it is nice to have direct view.

The first topic has picts. of my Scan Gauge version 1. If you order now, you'll be getting the much improved SG2. Check out our forum sponsor on the advertising link above.

Here it is installed in my RAV:
