Right hand drive?  It might not have US spec OBD-II.  Take a look again at
this web site, which may give you a cheap and easy way to pull the diagnostic
codes.  Than again, thus pre-OBD-II method may still be US spec.


You may find that the connectors identified on that web page might match
what's under your center console. On the Type 44 200s, those connectors
were in the (left hand drive) driver's footwell, under the steering
