Hi Doug,

The OBII connector on my car is just behind the hand brake, next to the ash 
tray. Open the ash tray, and there is a little plastic cover which slides 
back and off. I find it easier just to take the whole ash tray out to make 
When I was looking for mine, someone suggested it was in the drivers foot well 
on the inside column.

why do you want to plug a solar battery charger into the OBDII though? I know 
it provides some power, didn't think the pins would be able to handle enough 
current to charge a battery by.

You do realise there is something like three kinds of OBDII, most of the B5's 
i think use the slowest one. All new cars use CAN - much faster.
