Hi guys, this probably has nothing to do with electrical, but here goes, I have a 2003 windstar sport, and I also have an engine lite and door ajar lite on plus I have a obd scan tool, the problem is that I can`t find the plug for the tool, I looked high and low and I can`t find it, I know it shouldn`t be that hard to find, i`m thinking someone may have removed it, is that possible? Maybe i`m just not looking in the right place so i`m hoping you guys can help with that, any ideas where the hell it is. Thanks guys.

Hey guys, sorry for all the replies but I did as you said, I got my flashlite and crawled up under the dash as far as I could and no go, I still can t find the thing, I know what it looks like and theres nothing around there that even looks like it, I guess I have the odd ford that they forgot to put one in :) I have one more question for you, where can I find the keypad entry code, its not in the glovebox and I don t have a manual, I was told it may be on the computer but guess what.I don t know where that is either. Thanks a million guys, I tried to give you good feedback but it wouldn t let me.
