where is the OBD connector located in the 2007 Camry?

Does it provide constant 12-volt positive power?
(even when vehicle is turned off with key removed)

THANKS!

It is located under the dash, just to the right of the steering shaft cover, about 4 inches.
The print I found indicates that the +12v is located on pin #16 (OBDII Fuse @ 7.5A) and is always on, Ground on pin 4. This is a "CAN" compliant connector, 6 is CAN High & 14 is Can Low.

Is it a bad idea to keep keep the OBD connector plugged in on a permanent basis?

Only if you watch its readout more than the road!

It will draw current if the OBDII reader is left on with the key removed.

I guess the current draw shouldn't be that much...

My alarm system require a permanent connection to the OBDII connector.
(to scan/verify the VIN# whenever the car is started/turned-off)

Is the connection at the connector? Or, are you going to splice the wires? If a connector is used, the end of the plug might hang too low, and show.

Thanks for your help!

I looked under the dash and sure enough, the OBD connector is on the right.... I was looking
for it on the left side, near the hood release.(which is where the OBD connector is located on
all the other cars I've owned in the past) I feel so stupid... if only I turn my head to the right,
I would have seen it...

I took the OBD connector off and plugged into a OBD Y-adaptor/harness, then put one end
of the Y-adaptor back into the original OBD location.(in case a Toyota tech, or a state
emission inspector, need to plug it in)
