2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Question: Data link connector not working. Scanner says tool not plugged up!

 

Question

I recently lost all forward gears on my 01 tahoe (2wd). I hooked up an OBDII scanner to it but it would only read it was not connected to the vehicle. I then tried with another scanner and got the same results. I checked all fuses in the dash and under the hood. There are no pins bent or missing from the DLC. So I am stumped, not sure what to try. Please help!!

    Try checking the power and ground terminals at the OBD connector. Connect a voltmeter between terminals #5 and #16 and you should have battery voltage. Search "GM OBDII connector pinout" and you will find pictures of the terminal locations.
