Onboard Diagnostics II (OBD2) is a diagnostic system that is included in every vehicle made after 1996. It is used to check the engine and other vehicle systems and communicate all the possible glitches that happen to them.
I'm pretty sure there is a communication breakdown here as to what is missing. I'm fairly certain you can't remove the system, but maybe someone moved/removed the port under the dash?
