CFG83 is correct. the scanguageII was designed to talk with cars intended for the US market. Yours most likely will not work with any OBD2 scanners. I had the same problem when I put a JDM engine and computer in my US car. As I understand it OBD2 is only mandated in the US therefor cars in Japan just don't have the communication board in the computer.
