Check engine computer problem

I have a 1998 dodge Dakota with a standard transmission v6 4x4. The check engine light is on in the vehicle. so I go to plug my computer in to read the code and the computer turns on I tell it to check diagnostic code errors. The computer thinks for a while then come up with an error. saying there was an error while checking the code and to please check the connection. I know the computer is plugged in right. Is there some sort of fuse that could be bad that would still give the plug under the dash power to turn the computer on, but not let the computer read the codes?
