    You shouldn't need to use any connectors?

    You can pull codes without having to connect the test connectors; only the OBDII port itself.. Aside from having to hook them up when I reflashed my ECU I have no idea what they're for.

    I read/cleared a code just this morning, no test connector fiddling required.

    Key to the on position should do the trick, engine doesn't have to be on.
