Installation Instructions for the GenX5P and GenX6P OBD-II Tracking Devices with “J” Wiring Cable
Tools required: zip ties (provided in package)
Find the vehicle’s OBD-II port location. It is typically below the driver’s side of the dashboard or in the center console.
Plug the male OBD-II connector on the tracking device’s cable into the vehicle’s female OBD-II port.
Zip tie any excess wire to a wire loom behind the dashboard.
Plug the rectangular plug into the device.
With the QR code sticker facing down, route the device under the dashboard toward a location in the upper portion of the dashboard (if possible)
Find a secure location below the dash board to mount the device. Use zip ties to secure it to a wiring bundle or to the vehicle’s frame to ensure that it does not slip out while the vehicle is in operation.
Record the serial number for the device and the VIN/Year/Make/Model of the vehicle on your worksheet for activation.
Testing the Device
In order to test the device, the vehicle must be parked outside in an open area so that it can receive a GPS lock. The device’s LEDs will indicate proper operation.
The unit will power up as the vehicle’s ignition is turned on. The Green LED will show solid
for approximately 30 seconds (there may be some brief flickers initially while the processor
initializes). At no other time should the green LED remain on solid for such a long period.
After 30 seconds the green LED will start to flash at the following rates:
– 25 times on-off every 10 seconds when the ignition is on (this is quite rapid)
– 8 times on-off every 10 seconds when the ignition is off (this is quite slow)
– Very short blip once every 3 seconds when in sleep mode
The RED LED flashes 2-digit codes. Roughly speaking the first digit tells you what general
area is having a problem (hardware, modem, GPS, end-end service). The second digit
gives specific error information. Since there can be more than one error condition the
unit rotates through the error codes (for example if GPS is tracking no satellites and the modem is not registered).
Remember to record the serial number for the device and the VIN/Year/Make/Model of the vehicle that the device is installed in.
