    My cheap $24 BAFX Bluetooth ODBII scan tool arrived and it fits my 1997 Porsche Boxster just fine, where my Ross-Tech cable will not.

    Comparing the connectors, my only theory is that the center...

    It doesn't seem so. I took the pin you sent me and moved it through length of the slot for the center tab and couldn't find any obstructions.

    I have ordered a BAFX Bluetooth OBDII scan tool which...

    Thank you very much, Andy. I use a needle nose pliers and held the pins at the same depth so that they would be as long as the ross-tech cable's pins.

    I was able to insert the pins in each port...

    I'm not sure what a "tracker" is, but I've owned this car since new 18 1/2 years ago. There has never been anything in the ODBII socket other than for temporary diagnosis.

    It is clear that it is not getting hung up on anything surrounding the socket -- there is nothing nearby that might cause problems and it feels as if it is being blocked in the middle. (Also, it...

    No go with the added pressure. I pushed so hard that the ODBII socket moved inward half an inch, but still the connector wouldn't connect more than a couple mm.

    I suspect maybe my 1997 (only one...

    Thanks, @Zenerdiode. I'll give it a try with more effort, but I already pushed so hard I was worried I was going to break something. You've given me the confidence to try again.

    Remembering back to when I paid my local mechanic to read the codes the last time when I discovered that the Ross-Tech cable wouldn't fit, I compared my cable to theirs and it seemed it didn't have...

    Boy, that was hard to get a picture of. It's almost impossible to get the camera down there, to see what you're doing and get any light in there.
