Default 98 Forester, ODB2 Connector issues

Couldn't get the truck to pass emissions b/c the analyzer kept "loosing" connection with truck. OEM ODB2 connector pins are loose and connector is old, so I got a replacement.

New connector only has 5 wires / pins, and according to my pinout, I need at least 6. Or am I incorrect?

Is bigger than yours.


I'm going to guess that the OBD inspection device is only going to be looking at generic OBD data, so the missing select monitor pins probably won't matter at all, BUT if you ever go to a dealer, they're not going to have a good time.

You could try something like this: https://www.amazon.com/AntiBreak-Ext...dp/B07GR5W9PV/

And the male pins going into your factory OBD port you can give them a little twist (don't get crazy) to make a more positive connection.
