Ethernet Diagnostics Port

What you need

    • The ethernet diagnostics port is located behind the drivers side instrument panel cover.

    • The plastic panel is secured by 3 metal flex trim clips. Using an appropriate pry tool pry backwards at the points indicated

    • After opening the side panel, hold onto the cover until you disconnect the key fob antenna connector. Failure to do so could cause excessive strain on the wiring

    • Reach into the opening to feel for the diagnostic cable, if you have never had the car serivced it may be tucked down into the recess

    • There should only be one cable with a circular white connector

    • Pull out the connector, but be careful, since there is not much slack in the cable. This is part of a large and expensive wiring harness.

    • Connect the FakraHSD to Ethernet cable until you hear a click.

    • To disconnect press down on the small finger and gently pull the connectors apart.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
