Default Computer hook up

Well ok, my engine light is on and I took it to get the computer plugged up. Butttttt of course for some reason it won't connect. Just says bad connection. Any solutions or things to check? Also a side note, when I have my wipers on sometimes when they wipe my radio skips. Have no idea why.

There is a fuse for the data link connector and the second lighter plug in the fuse panel.

You probably changed the wrong one. There is a fuse for the normal lighter plug. And there is a second fuse labeled as power port or something / datalink
