Hi everybody - can you tell me what this socket is (ref photo) - Its located beside the drivers pedals - I really want it to be a socket for a brake controller....?

I went into this space (at the drivers pedals) looking for an ODB socket to plug in my 'reader' but could not locate it - can you help me with that also?

Thx
Jim

I don’t believe any of the 100 series came with brake controller wiring. Most came with a tow box in the rear drivers quarter that was a 4pin harness. But outside of that if you want more along the lines of a 7-pin with brake control and auxiliary power then that has to be installed separately. Just messed with mine in my build thread.

Good, the OBDII is usually next to foot well above the gas pedal. Believe it is grey colored and a bit oblong shaped. Doesn't look like any of the other normal plugs that you would come across.

I think later year 100s (like 2003+?) are pre wired for a trailer brake controller, but that ain't it. Based on threads I've seen on here, it's just past elbow deep up behind the lower dash/knee panel below the steering wheel.
