obd2 port

so I recently purchased a 04 6.0 litre. Im having trouble connecting a scan tool to the port. checked the fuse and it is good. ciggarete lighter does not work either. I was tracing the wires to the port and one of the wires(white and blue stripe) is cut off. Is that normal? Im not great with wiring so any help would be great.

I couldn't find anything with a white/blue wire, but I recently blew the fuse that powers the OBD-II and cigar lighter and replaced the wrong fuse. After a lot of tracing, I discovered my error and all was well.

Check the fuses above and below the one you think is the correct one. It's easy to miss count when you are standing on your head and trying to see what is in the fuse block. It does look like there is a blank between the top 2 fuses, but there is not. My owners manual shows it is fuse 2-12, #3 in the second column of fuses.

Another thing with these little fuses is that they can look okay but be burnt at the ends, meaning the very top corners under the writing making it hard to tell. I use an OHM meter to verify good/bad.

What kind of scan tool are you trying to connect. The generic code reader from the A/P store will not really get you anything. I have an Innova 3140 and when my friend was thinking of purchasing a used PSD ('04 I think) he brought it over and I wasn't able to retrieve very much useful information. VERY LIMITED live data..I was trying to check EOT/ECT deltas.

So I was just looking at the wrong fuse. Can't trust all info you find online I guess.

I'm hooking up my android phone and it seems to work good. The real time info seemed accurate. Showed one code, for my transmission temp sensor.

Could this scanner pick up some codes but not others (like injector codes? ) or would it pick up everything or nothing at all?

Not sure what kind of scan tool you are trying to connect. Whatever you use needs to be capable of reading Ford Enhanced PID's if you want to get to the good stuff.
