Your XH does not and cannot have an OBD2 port. AU was the first Australian Ford to have them, BA was the first Australian Ford that were comms compliant. Your going to need to look at an E series code reader to get any fault codes out of the ECU.

Again, OBD reader is useless for your car.

For my EL I use some aligator clips to short the two pins on the left, and a $3 LED test light from Jaycar to get the codes out. Much cheaper than a OBD scanner that isn't compatible :P
