No obd2 usefulness with Fenix 5.2.
Cruise, Auto, ABS, SRS , Climate, but nothing engine related.
Frustrating Flash codes for diagnostics. On that subject - is it normal to have the 850 diagnostic port behind the headlight on ‘98?

In our market obd has to be within some distance of the ignition switch, I think, so it’s in the center console

You could monitor voltage off the Ect and use that to generate a lookup table of temperatures , Iguess

Yes, I have the obd2 in the console, but I also have the obd1(??) in the engine bay with the jumper wire and LED, I take it that’s not the norm.
