No OBD port power?

Something weird happened to my car today. I was going to turn my car on and i had to crank it for more than 4 seconds in order for it to start. I turned it off and tried turning it on again, but it did the same thing. The amber service light came up so i went ahead and grabbed my OBD reader and the device wouldnt power on. i thought it may have been the reader but i tried it on my truck and the reader did work on it, but not my alty? I checked all the fuses under the dash and none of them are blown. I let the car sit for about 1 and a half in my drive way, and i went to turn it on and Poof! it turned on right away and no more service light but i still have no power coming from the OBD connection? Anything thoughts?

what could have caused it to fry, I bought it used and it had 80K miles on it?

On a side note: I know the ecu is located behind the glove box, but is it directly bhind it when there are two latches that say push. It looks like a housing.

NOOOOOOO. That is the cabin air filter.
The ecu is actually on the side of the glove box next to the passenger side door and the side vent.
I do have 2 questions?
Is the scanner an OBD1 reader or an OBD2 reader? Have you used it on the car to read a code before? You might have bent a prong on the cable. The car would not run correctly if the ecu was fried chicken.

Thats the thing....The car runs fine, i was going to see if i could reset the ecu, but i need to figure out how to do that. As for the reader I checked on my truck to see if my reader was broken but it does work. I stilll cant figure out. I checked all the fuses inside the dash and one fuse block under the hood. I cant check the fuses on the other side of the battery because there is no way my hand can fit in there and grab each one individually.

Well i went ahead and tried to read the codes manually using the acceleration pedal depression procedure and came out with two codes....P0725 and P0335 which when i searched on google came up with alot of threads about the subject. But my question is could this be related to my OBD not being to get any power?
