On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) Ports

OBD is an abbreviation of On-Board Diagnostics and refers to the automotive electronic system that provides vehicle self-diagnosis and reporting capabilities for repair technicians to access subsystem information for the purpose of performance monitoring and repair.

OBD is the standard protocol used across most light-duty vehicles to retrieve vehicle diagnostic information. Information is generated by the engine control unit (ECU or also called engine control module) within a vehicle.

For security reasons, Ford Motor Company do not publish details of the location of the OBD port in vehicles. Should you need further information or assistance regarding the OBD port, please contact your local dealership.
