I have seen few 96-99 Toyota Camrys with no communication with BAR 97 (ESP). There is power at the DLC but no rpm with communication error. Any quick fixes to this issue. Any help highly appreciated. Thanks and a HAppy New Year.
All of the '96 and '97 Toyotas I have ever seen were fully OBD-2 compliant. Some of them didn't have EVAP monitors, but they all still communicated with generic OBD-2 scanners and/or code readers with no adapters needed. I believe the problem is that a lot of them have two (interior) DLCs, and it is easier to find the round DLC under the dash than it is to find the OBD-2 DLC behind the coin door near the driver's left knee (at least in the case of the Camry).
I had forgot most one myself and tell about 10 minutes ago I had a 1996 Toyota Camry with 4 cylinder come in for smog.the obd2 was located around left knee that if you remove The panel it's to the sight of it and located right next to the fuse Box

Toyota's OBD2 connect pins get loose.
Used tach lead to start with, then use the obd connector to do the data download.
Hold the connector straight or Drape it over the steering column to acheave a tight fit.
