Two types of data link connectors are used on each vehicle. Each is designed to fit a specific type of tool. The data link connector for the Nissan CONSULT is located in the interior fuse panel (as illustrated). The data link connector for the Generic Scan Tool (GST) is located under the left side of the dashboard.

The data link connectors are for use with scan tools only. The terminals cannot be jumpered to read out diagnostic codes, as on some vehicles. Be sure to follow the scan tool manufacturer's instructions.
