If your vehicle doesn't have an OBD2 Port, there is a solution.

Bouncie is designed to physically attach to an OBD2 Port. However, if your vehicle does not have an OBD2 Port, you can use a conversion adapter or an OBD2 wiring harness to install the Bouncie device.

In most situations, an adapter can be used to convert a non-OBD2 Port configuration to the physical design of an OBD2 Port. Depending on your vehicle, these adapters are easy to find on Amazon and generally inexpensive.

An OBD2 wiring harness would need to provide the constant power and ground needed for Bouncie to work. When looking for an adapter, look for one that has a wire for constant power and a wire that acts as a ground. These are usually red and black. Tap the button below to view an adapter that is frequently used by our customers.

When Bouncie is installed in a non-OBD2 Port, we will update your device to an alternate configuration, which will provide all the location and driving data as you would expect. However, vehicle diagnostics, as well as fuel level reporting, will not be available.

The alternate configuration uses the power and ground from the non-OBD2 Port, but does not read data from the vehicle. Instead, it uses its internal sensors for all the information.

We can initiate the device update remotely. Then as the vehicle is driven over the next 24 hours, the update will complete.
