Given that it doesn't meet US emissions regs and dates back to the late 1990s, there's a good chance it doesn't support OBD-II/EOBD. Support for those protocols wasn't required until MY 2001 in Europe.

I thought it is ironic that the extra goodies that come with the car are placed in what is called a "flight case" !

I didn't think the US were bothered about emissions? We drive toys over here with little 1.0 litre engines and all that crap about less weight to reduce emissions, while in your bigger countries you drive round in big tanks with up to six litre engines in :eek::D

Eh?

We got PCV valves back in 1968.
We got catalytic converters almost universally in 1975.
We got generic OBD-II and all that entails (catalyst and misfire monitoring, etc) in 1996.

The reality is: We did all this stuff years before Europe or the UK.

Yeah, I know. I've got a motorcycle with a bigger engine than that! :cool:

If that were true, then why does this Swedish brick of a tank have a European-style trailer hitch????? :confused:
