Anyone got the software / tool to scan the OBD II on a 993 ?

is it worth getting......???

and where is the OBD II port ?

having used VAG-COM with my TT, i've found it invaluable !

I purchased a scan tool from Auto Enginuity which was supposed to scan all cars with OBD II. Doesn't work on the 993 (1996), but works on my BMW (2001). When I contacted them they said that the Porsche doesn't conform with the standard until at least 2000.

The port is in the passenger foot well with OBD written on it, even though it has an OBD II connector.

Anyone know if re-mapping the ECU b*ggers up the diagnostics?

I think that the pre varioram 993's are OBD I and the post are OBD II.

Not 100% sure tho so if someone else could confirm - port is on passenger side of centre console where the spoler, sunroof buttons are.

Sundeep,

Just out of interest, do you know where the OBD II port is on an AUDI TT?
