This cable connects between the USB port of a laptop and the Consult Port of Nissan vehicles. There’s a small circuit board (pictured) to the Consult port that converts the data.
The design has been tested on a list of vehicles which is always growing. As a rule, if your car has the grey Consult connector (you’ll usually find it below the steering wheel or near the fusebox in the driver’s kick panel) and was built between 1990 – 2000 then it will work. Some cars that missed out were the A31 Cefiro RB20 and anything with a CA18. These vehicles do NOT use the Consult system but can be interfaced to using a NIStune Type 1 board and a standard USB Type-A to Type-B (printer) cable.
