I am not able to get my odbcII reader to work when I plug in the reader no reading

 

Expert:  Neal replied 2 years ago.

#16 on the connector is the power for the scanner, see if there is power there.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

what if there is no power -I know the reader works I put it in my pickup truck and works

 

Expert:  Neal replied 2 years ago.
If there is no power there you need to trace the wire as it may be cut or damaged, sometimes it happens when aftermarket components are installed.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

where does the power come from ecm or fuse panel the reason why I have a check engine on

the other thing is every time I start engine the dual fans start running and low and high speed when I shut off engine then the fans run at low speed is there a sensor or fuse for that

 

Expert:  Neal replied 2 years ago.
I'm not sure on that one, I think it comes from the ecm, cannot determine from the diagrams. Vw diagrams are not the best.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
what about the fans
Expert:  Neal replied 2 years ago.
What about them?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
when I start engine the fans start running low and high speed and when I shut off engine the fans run for a while is that normal
Expert:  Neal replied 2 years ago.
Ok, you didn't mention that before. So besides the fans, the check engine light and the lack of communication with the ecm, is it doing anything else?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

no

Expert:  Neal replied 2 years ago.
This may be a problem with the ecm if all of this started at once. It is going to be best to go to the dealer for a diagnostic.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

not all of this started at once -the check engine light started a while ago the reader pointed to fresh air fan ,but the transmission broke and was sitting for about a year started fixing it up again replaced transmission and started looking at the other things wrong replaced fresh air fan went to check reader no juice to reader looked at the dual fans they were broke replaced them but runs all the time when engine is running and when it turns off runs at low speed ( is that normal) trying to put back on road ,a/c doesn't work could be freon ( not worried about that for now ) but the fuses where all messed up not right size in some places that I could figure out that why I needed layout

replaced all the brakes and rotors ,timing belt water pump and so on

Expert:  Neal replied 2 years ago.
Try going through all your grounds and connections. Remove the grounds and clean them and use dielectric grease on connections, sitting like that is not good for them. You might get lucky and avoid the dealer.
