Hello Tony, do you have a factory radio or aftermarket radio installed?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I have an aftermarket radio

Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

Ok , you have to remove the radio fuse before checking for fault codes or it will interrupt the diagnosis port connection. Try this first and let me know. If that does not help we can troubleshoot the diagnosis port. Hope this information helps. Lou
