I have a 1990 honda civic si and the check engine light recently came on. I want to get a scanner to see what the problem is before taking it to a mechanic. Which scanner is used for this year and model? And where exactly do I plug it into my car? Thanks.
No scanner available. Obd 1 system. You jump a 2 wire connector under the right side kick panel and count the light flashes to retrieve the codes.

Obd1 1995 and older obd2 1996 and newer. The manual will tell you where the diagnostic port is exactly. Could have 2 one under the steering wheel side of the dash and 1 under the hood. The scaner kits will usualy tell you what vehicles and what adapter to use.

The honda has 1 2 wire connector under the right side kick panel only. It can be jumped with a wire and the code numbers will flash out.
