    The port is on the drivers side kick panel, to the right of the throttle pedal.

    Ediabas will work, there is a cover marked OBD, and then a plug cover inside that.

    As far as I know, it is because the K line (diag line) is separated into 2 bits, one for the engine and autobox, and one for the body systems.
    The resistor in there is a break in the loop with each side being separate for diagnosing them, but connected when the car is running, a bit like a road block on a road so you can separate out the north and south sides.

    That makes sense however, the resistor doesn't actually make contact with any of the pins in the socket?????
    Maybe you're right but, although it doesn't apply on my model, they included it in the manufacture anyway??

    It might be for the older cars, and they use the same plug on all of them.

    One of the reasons to leave the cap on on the old 20 pin connectors as they also have bridging wires in the cap.
