OBD2 Scanner issue

So I have a 2012 Toyota Tundra 5.7L double cab. I assume I have what is an OBD2 port in my truck. When I look at it, itís white, looks like 16 ports, but not all of them look like they are actually pinned with actual metal pins in them if that makes sense.

Anyways. I am just trying to find a simple basic one that will clear codes, nothing extra really. I have tried FIVE OBD2 readers, and none of them will connect or communicate with my truck.

Does anyone know for sure which reader will actually work with my truck and actually clear codes!? I greatly appreciate any help!

Unless you have an issue with your OBDII port, any OBDII code reader should be able to communicate with your Tundra. Some basics....
1. The ignition key needs to be in the on position and your truck battery needs to be functioning to communicate via the OBDII port. Truck doesn't have to be running.
2. OBDII port located under the steering wheel
3. With basic code reader, you can only read and clear engine related codes, not ABS, SRS, Transmission codes, etc.
Helpful video....

If you are doing all the basics right, then it's time to dig deeper into the OBDII port itself. If you have questions, you could always take it to Autozone, etc and have them try to read your codes to verify the port is functioning....they typically do that for free.

Iím going to bump this again and see if anyone has any other info.

I have tried two different scanners from friends that are between 30 - 50 bucks and they donít work.

The ones at the auto store do but they are like 300+ dollars?


Any insight?

Going to try and bump again. This is insane, none of these OBDís are compatible for whatever reason.

Thanks Brian and Powertech! Got that one and it works! Itís because my OBD is CAN complaint and I guess the ones I was trying to use were not.

Thanks!
