I can not find the location of the OBD II connector on my F53 chassis motorhome

Believe it or not, on F53 motorhomes they did NOT have OBD-II. If I recall correctly, they still used the "old school" EEC-IV style data link connectors. To locate this, you will need to lift the engine access cover on the inside of the vehicle. Look for two electrical connectors. One has six prongs, and the other is just a single prong.

Reply to mcc1228's Post: The chassis manual states it uses an obd II system, so I am not sure this is correct but I will look in the morning to see if I can find what you have said.

Were you able to locate the data link connector?

Just to clarify, this is a 1997 model year? If I'm not mistaken, this was the last year that the F53 motorhome chassis was offered with the 7.5L (460) V8? I will check my my publications. According to my service publications, it is located under the hood in the engine compartment, beside the starter motor relay, on the right hand side. This will be C148 and C149. It will have a cap. Again, one connector has six prongs (four on one row, and two on top), and the other is just a single terminal connector.
