OBD-II extension cable overview
In some vehicles, the OBD-II port is sometimes where the driver might bump into the Vehicle Data Device (VDD) when getting in and out of the vehicle.
The OBD-II extension cable allows the VDD to be mounted away from the OBD-II port (and the driver’s knees) as well as providing some additional discouragement from the VDD being removed.
