How to install GPS Tracker

- Apr 20, 2018-

Many newcomers to initial contact with car GPS locators have no knowledge of the installation of GPS locators, which leads to chaotic installation, resulting in incomplete product features, or the positioning accuracy is not as good as the manufacturer's description. The reason for this is the wiring problem. How to install the GPS locator, and how to connect? Next detailed introduction.



A. How to Find the Power Cable The power cable of the vehicle platform is usually found in the inner wiring harness of the decorative panel under the steering wheel and the wiring harness of the central electrical box. If there is a condition, the power cable is directly connected to the positive pole of the battery. The normal working DC voltage of the vehicle platform is 10~36V. The power cord has power in all states of the ignition switch.



Finding method: Pull out the key and find the thickest wire. Use one end of the test lamp (or test pencil) to ground the iron and the other end to test on the wire connector. If the test light is on, the line is the power cable.



II. ACC Signal Line Finding Method The ACC line is generally found in the inner wiring harness of the decorative plate below the steering wheel and in the wiring harness of the central electrical box. The ACC signal line is the main basis for the host to determine whether the vehicle is in the starting state.



    Finding method: Find the thicker wire in the ignition switch wiring harness, use one end of the test lamp to ground, the other end is tested on the wire connector: when the ignition switch is turned to “ACC” or “ON” position, the test light is on; After switching off the ignition switch, the test lamp is off. This connection is the ACC line.

The method of finding the turn signal line The turn signal line is usually found in the inner panel of the decorative panel under the steering wheel, the wiring harness of the central electrical box, and the inner wiring harness of the left and right front doors. Most models have two lines, left and right, but there are also a few models that are divided into front, rear, left, and right lines.



   Finding method: Because the left and right lights of the small light, brake light, and reversing light are the same, you can compare the colors of the left and right wiring harnesses before and after the combination light, find the turn signal line, see its color and size, and then in the wiring harness inside the car. , find the same color size of the line. One end of the test lamp is used for grounding and the other end is tested on the line. When the left or right turn signal switch is turned on, try this line with the test light. If the test lamp turns on and off with the turn signal, this line is the steering. Light line. The same method is used to find another turn signal line. Note: In some vehicles, the turn signal line (the vehicle whose steering signal is controlled by the module) cannot be confirmed on the wiring harness under the turn signal switch. The same method can only be found in the central electrical box harness and the left and right front door inner wiring harnesses. For vehicles with front and rear steering lights controlled separately by the module, it is recommended that only the line of the rear turn signal be connected before the original car's wiring will be affected. This wiring method can only make the rear turn signal light when arming and disarming.



4, How to find the brake line The brake line can be found at the brake light switch above the foot brake.



     Finding method: Find the brake light switch, use one end of the test lamp on the ground and the other end on the switch joint. One of them should be a constant current, and the other has electricity after depressing the foot brake, and the line without power after releasing the foot brake is the brake line.



5. Finding method of oil-distressed wire The oil-disconnected wire on the platform is connected to the positive line of the oil pump. The positive characteristic of the oil pump is to turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position. When the vehicle is not started, the line has a short positive power of 2 to 3 seconds and then returns to the initial state without power. After starting the engine, the line is always Positive electricity. The purpose of the original car design is to allow the standard oil pressure in the tubing before the engine is started, but it also prevents the ignition switch from being in the “ON” position for a long time and the vehicle is not started and burns the oil pump. The positive line of the oil pump can generally be found in the fuel tank, the left or right front door harness, and the central electrical box.



    Finding method: Find the thicker wire in the harness, use one end of the test lamp to put the iron, and the other end to test on the wire connector. When the ignition switch is turned to the “ON” position and the vehicle is not started, the line has a short positive power of 2 to 3 seconds and then returns to the initial state of no power; after starting the engine, the line is always positive, then this The root line is the positive line of the pump.
