that is your obdII port. the same code scanner you would use on a gasser will not pull the codes from your diesel. you can try to find an addapter but it still isnt going to give you your dtc codes.

do you have an obdII scanner? if im not mistaken, the obdII's werent required until 1995 and later. So maybe your truck was born in 1994 and have the obdI.

Some of those trucks had the plug and even had wires running to them but they are still OBDI. If that is the case then you need an adapter I think Been a long time so can't remember for sure....

The mfg date is 3/95

The mfg date is 3/95 and the scan tool is a Innova model #3143 it came w/the truck and the package includes 1995 diesel for scan capability. If it's the connector mounted at the bottom of the dash and is black with blue connectors holding the wiring into it then my scan tool will not fit. This tool has 3 1/4" wide blades and another off to one side. The connection under the dash looks like it takes much smaller pins or blades....Grrrrrrrr....foiled again!
