Can someone tell me where the plug is for an OBD 1 scanner? I have read that on the non-S 944s its near the right side of the firewall in front of the strut mount, but I dont seem to find one there so I'm presuming ours is elsewhere?

The 944 S does not have one to my knowledge. I have a 87 944 S in the parking lot and there is not one there. Porsche started putting them in the 944 in 88 I think but it didn't really become a standard thing until 89.

If the OBD scanner you have isn't made specifically to work with Porsche then it likely will not work even if you did have the port.

Bummer! I have an 88 944s and was hoping for a little self diagnoses from it. Guess I'm going to have to continue to tinker.

The diagnostic ports on the 944's gave very limited information anyway. The only thing I have ever used them for was resetting airbag lights.

If you had one it would be a round plug mounted to a square bracket on the firewall engine side behind the drivers side strut mount.
