It is recommended that the electronics box is attached to a fl at surface (GASLOCK logo at the top); the direction of the cable is irrelevant. The electronics box should not be mounted near heating elements or air ducts to prevent heating or cooling.
It should not be in a location that is subject to cooling due to drafts or air conditioning vents. Take care not to mount the electronics box to any part of the vehicle subject to getting hot. Under certain circumstances, the heat can deform the box to the extent that the position of it can change.
According to our experience, this preferred mounting position ensures maximum accuracy and stability without incorrect gear displays!
Temperature differences between the shifter knob and electronics box can cause an intermittent incorrect display.
Connect the red wire to a power cable that is only energizer (“hot“) when the ignition is on (such as power to the cigarette lighter or similar device) and connect the black wire to a suitable ground. Be careful routing these wires to prevent any subsequent damage! Therefore installation by experienced persons or by a specialized vehicle repair shop is recommended!
After connecting the red wire to a power source and the black wire to ground, connect the electronics box to the shifter knob by plugging the other end of the connecting data cable into the small socket at the bottom of the shifter knob. Be very careful to plug the connector in correctly to prevent damage or malfunctions!
Starting the procedure
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY!
After turning on the car‘s ignition and the Indy-Cator is on, the user is always asked whether the programming procedure should be started.
When the two segments at the top left of the display fl ash (see Fig.7.13), put the car into fi rst gear. If the car is already in fi rst gear, proceed to the next step. The segments at the bottom right of the display will then start to fl ash (see Fig. 7.14), which tell you to put the car into fourth gear. When you do this, the system remembers the gearshift positions of these gears. You are then asked again to reselect gears 1 and 4. If this is successful, the programming procedure can start. If gears 1 and 4 are not selected at this time, the programming procedure is stopped.
Perform the programming procedure:
Switch on ignition! All gear positions of the system are displayed by a number or segment fl ashing on the display in sequence. Then, the indicated gear must be selected by the user. Gear selection takes place in two phases as the vehicle is positioned on two different gradients. In the fi rst phase, the vehicle should be facing forward on a gradient and positioned in the opposite direction for the second phase.
The end of the fi rst phase is indicated by the display of a line (see Fig. 7.12). Between the two phases, you have about 60 seconds to change the position of the vehicle. The lapse of this time is indicated on the display by a downward count from 9 to 0.
The gear positions are taught in the phases in the following order: gears 1 to 6 (see Figs. 7.2 - 7.7), reverse gear (see Fig. 7.11), center neutral position (see Fig. 7.15), left neutral position (see Fig. 7.16 keep in position here) and right neutral position (see Fig. 7.17 keep in position here). If the vehicle does not have a sixth gear, obviously it cannot be selected. When requested in the fi rst phase to select the sixth gear, the gear shift lever should remain in the previous position and not moved. The system recognizes the shift lever has not moved and skips to the second phase.
