Check the OBD fuse under the dash.

I got the adapter from ebay $10 yesterday and bought the program $5 then tried it on my 02 grand cherokee. It was fairly accurate from what I could tell but I only had 10 minutes to mess around with it. Ill get some time tomorrow to really see what its all about. But so far Id say it was a good $15 investment

I bought one of these awhile back, used it a few times, then the "newness" wore off for me and it's been in a drawer since... :D

Did you actually see them plug it in? Most cars have the port under the drivers side of the dash, I always have to tell people it's on the passenger side. The last time I had the yearly inspection done they had to go through a few adapters to find the right one as well.

The port is the same size, but they had to figure out what adapters to use to hook it to the machine, went through about 4 before they found one that connected. For just reading error codes that probably won't be an issue.

I have one of the cheap ODB-II bluetooth scanners and use it with Torque Pro on my android phone everytime i drive my 97 Bird anywhere. Keeps log files and lets you set up some sweet custom gauges. Even monitor your Trans Temp, air intake temp, TC slip. It's pretty sweet. App and scanner cost me less then $20. And I was not expecting it to work so well. The only problem I had was the power from the battery on my ODB-II connector was broken.

I have an ELM327 and Torque on my phone and it's pretty good....... however being we are all Ford people here if you have a laptop that has bluetooth you can download ForScan. It's a great program that has a LOT more to it. http://www.forscan.org/ I just used it on my 96. Best part is ForScan is free and has what a lot of pay programs have.
