Cannot find 2-p connector for CEL diagnostic

Hey guys my CEL came on today and I am trying to follow the following DIY for figuring out the codes. On step 2 I cannot find the 2-pin connector for my life. I swear it is not there. Is this possible? Could it be somewhere else?


Another DIY ATTS, ABS, & CEL (Check Engine Light) DTC - Honda Prelude Forum - Prelude Online.com

Thanks

Sit in your passengers seat and to the left of ur feet kinda under the center console there should be a little carpeted kinda square. Pull that off and ull see a large blue plug-in. Plugged into that is a small blue plug. That is your 2p connector that you jump out. Hope this helps

The wire feeds in from under the carpet towards the front of the car past that bar

Re: Cannot find 2-p connector for CEL diagnostic

I'll take another look but both me and my buddy spent a good while looking around and I swear there is nothing there. I found a couple 2 pin connectors on the left drivers side, any chance it's one of them?
