Actron 9180 reader will not establish comm. No 12vdc at pin 16 of DLC. Battery vdc present at one side of fuse 5 in fuse panel. Other side of fuse 5(not Blown) does not have a wire connected in the fuse panel. Not broken off or hanging loose. Apparently never connected. Where does the DLC obtain power from?
Key on/off or engine running makes no difference.

DLC obtains power from fuse 17 in fuse/relay box under left hand side of dash. Same fuse as cigarette lighter.

HI there,

Just to add to what David H has posted, here is a view of the DLC wiring schematic showing the power supply.
