Hi all, I just got a 2022 Tucson and mostly love it. twice now, the check engine light came on, dealer fixed it last time, now I have to wait for an appointment. I have a scanner, but can not find the OBD port to plug into. internet search reveals nothing. Can anyone help me find the port? Thanks in advance!

The OBD2 port is located under the left side of the steering column, the typical location for most cars.

Thank you, I found it, but it had a black plastic cap with wires coming out. Once the cap was popped off, things look familiar.

Is there anything plugged into OBD? or is it just a cap with wires kept out the way?

I have sense learned, It is where the DFence GPS system plugs in. It is an anti theft and tracking system the dealer installed prior to delivery. Sort of like LoJack.

So does that thing need to be plugged in or unnecessary? Plan on plugging in a OBD connector for dash cam.

I think it gets its power to operate from the OBD port. Its not required to operate the car, just a nice dealer installed option. lets me know if vehicle is moving and where.
Gotcha. appreciate the insight. Figure i'd ask as i'm slowly in the market for the car, however its on backorder and I want to get parking mode feature on dashcam - however, dont want to mess with the hardwiring electrical work.
my quest for the port began with the check eng. lite came on. the code was cooling performance. Now at 2K miles it is on again for the 4th time. I'm in South Dakota waiting on a computer for the car. Got the car new in Scottsdale, AZ. mileage to get here was 38 on the highway and 25 in town, really like the interior design, not cluttered.... The limited edition fit our search well. Hope you enjoy your new ride.

Thanks Nate,
I hope the issues get resolved on your end. This seems to be a very nice vehicle.
Also curious to know if anyone has any trouble fitting a baby/child seat in as one use said to have issues and required a seatbelt extension.

I just went out to see, as I have a wifi device that plugs into this port when not in use for diagnostics. I saw nothing like the picture provided,....any other possibilities?

The photo I posted has the black plastic cap with wires coming out to power the anti theft device. I just pop it off to use the port for other things like troubleshooting. When the prepaid service is up I will probably toss the devise and wires as Hyundai Blue link does much the same service.

I went out and looked at mine. It's located as advertised in Crow's and Nate's posts.

I transfer one child seat and one baby seat from my wife’s vehicle to mine and back, when needed. I find that seats are easy to hook into my Tucson Hybrid Blue. I haven’t had any issues, at all.
Hi Nate,
If you don't mind me asking, what application are you using to diagnose and does it provide any customization, such as the Carly application?. I'm interested in changing a few things, such as the seat belt chime duration, auto-lock and un-lock of the doors if I turn ignition off...etc. Thanks in advance.

SAE J1962:

...(R) 5.3.9 Vehicle Connector Terminal 16— Vehicle connector terminal 16 is
designated Unswitched Vehicle Battery Positive and must be implemented in the
vehicle connector. This terminal must be connected directly (i.e., unswitched) to the
DC Positive of the vehicle's battery. This connection does not preclude the use of a
fuse or other circuit protection elements. This circuit may be grouped with other
similar circuits. This terminal must be able to supply a minimum of 4.0 A
...

If your dash cam doesn't use more than 4A and you're OK with unswitched voltage, the dash cam should be fine.
