Hey all. I have a 2000 Jimny. My EML is on and I've tried reading it with my trusty obd2 Bluetooth adapter but it isn't getting any power.

Is that to be expected? It's worked on every car I've ever tried it on but the Jimny is the oldest. So is it not an OBD2 or is there a fault? Rodents have been in about the wiring elsewhere in the car so broken wires are possible though I can't see any around the back of the port.

Help appreciated :)

I'm not 100pc certain but I think that the earlier ones upto about 2002 were obd not obd2. I could be wrong.

Depends a bit on what spec your car has, bit different for different markets. But it is most likely early OBD from what i could find on google. dunno what type of attachement people in here uses for this, but i have read about them getting codes off it.
You can look at the OBD connector and see if there are four attachements or three I read somewhere.

Rhinopower (Rhinoman on this forum) was making readers for older Jimnys but think that his day job has taken all his time so they are not being made at present

More than 4 is all I can tell. But my adapter does only do OBD2 onwards so ...

If you have a twin cam engine you have obd 2. If single cam it's obd1.

A 2000 plate hard top is likely to be a twin cam, a soft top will be single cam.
