Where's the OBD Port

    I've got a 1992 Subaru Sambar KV3. I was told that there's an OBD1 port under the dash but I can't find it. Any info will be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    The supercharged and EFI models have an orange diagnostic connector directly behind/below the fuse box to the left of the steering column. It only uses Subaru Select Monitor signaling, which is pre-OBDII. Carbed models have no connector, since the engine is purely mechanical and has no computer.

    Groovy. Do you know if the Subaru Select Monitor is still available? The Check Engine light is on. I can probably figure it out without a reader...but it would make it a little easier.
    Thanks!

    Also, do you have any idea what the other dangling connectors in the photo are for? 2 Green and 2 Black.

    The green ones Subaru used to use as putting it into some sort of diagnostic mode. I'm a little fuzzy about it since it's pretty old school, but they were always green and they don't use that green 2 plug connector anywhere else in their vehicles

    The SSM can be found on eBay from time to time, but you need to find one with the appropriate cartridge for the Sambar, which is nearly impossible nowadays.
