So i have searched the forums and got nothing and google. Does anyone know where exactly the OBD II port is on a 2004 6s???

Edit: Ok so i found out why I cannot find it, and it would be because it does not exist and needs a CAN converter. Given that, where is that located? Is that what the CAI MAFci is tapped into??

Underneath the dash, more to the leftside (IIRC) and it's mounted on a shiny metal plate.

It is not the same thing that you tap the MAFci into is it? I have looked underneath and cannot seem to find it anywhere....

The MAFci taps into the wires as they lead into the ECU, not the OBD jack.

EDIT: found this online:

The picture is worth a thousand words of where it is located. To give a verbal description: it is under the dash, facing downwards, position approximately directly under the steering wheel or where the brake pedal is at (choose your point of reference preference).

When I was first looking for it I was looking on the left side under the dash, closer to the door since the Mazda3 has theirs located almost all the way to the left side.

Shocker after looking 3 times I see its really right in front of my face the entire time. I was looking more behind the steering column than under I guess. DOH!

Got 2 codes and 1 pending. P1410 and P0301 as well as P1410 Pending as well. I see its something with cylinder 1 misfiring and the other was EGR Boost Solenoid Valve Stuck. Guess I need to plug in that little green guy. I assume there is nothing bad that will come of having this unplugged except maybe not pass emissions?

On another note, a friend of mine has a CAI on his 6s and drove through a mighty big puddle today with all this rain and his car started to sputter and a CEL came on. Luckily his car kept driving and there seems to be no smoke or driving problems with the car, but he will be getting an oil change tomorrow as well as ordering a splash guard. Could this be the reason that my friend also through the code P0301?

P1 codes are usually manufacturer specific, so a P1410 for a Toyota is going to be different from a P1410 for a Mazda. Case in point, P1410 for the Mazda6 is "VAD control system circuit malfunction". Variable Air Duct, or "that little green plug"
