Does the 1994 B190 have an OBD-II port?

Post by Millennial Falcon » Fri Jun 21, 2019 1:41 pm

I'm looking to install something like the SyncUP Drive for on-the-road internet access.

I'm not surrently in the same state as my B190 or I'd check myself... but does anyone know if the 1994 Airstream B190 has an OBD-II port and if so where it's located?

Thank you!

I can't speak specifically about our van's, but I believe OBD II was not mandatory on vehicles until the 1996 model year. While I think some manufactures stared implementing as early as 1994, those would likely have been on newly designed vehicles, not ones that had been around for a few years.

I don't think a '94 would have OBD-II.

Well, I'll see when I get back to the vehicle then! I ordered off Amazon a USB-powered cradle for the T-mobile version of the Drive. Can't really beat unlimited internet for $10 a month... that'll keep my Alexa going and also give me the ability to put a wifi security camera in the rig that I can check from my phone when I'm away from the vehicle. :-)

UPDATE: Nope, there's no OBD-II port on the 1994 Airstream. There IS a Ford EEC port under the hood, but that's no good for my purposes. For anyone wondering, I bought a PenaltaProducts OBD-II Port harness that plugs into USB. I do not get all the codes engine diagnostics, but I do still get vehicle tracking from the T-Mobile SyncUp Drive2, and most importantly... my B190 now has an always-on, unlimited Data, WiFi network called FBI_SURVEILLANCE_VAN_602 that will both keep me connected and scare the neighbors. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
