CA1150 Installation & LED Guide

CA1150 Wired Vehicle Tracker Install & LED Guide #

The CA1150 Wired Vehicle Tracker has 2 LEDs and ESN Code on the sticker. If your device has 3 LEDs and no ESN, please review the AL11 Vehicle Model articles.

If the ESN begins with “127” this is an LTE Vehicle Tracker.

If the ESN begins with “136” or “216” this is a 3G Vehicle Tracker and is no longer viable in the US.

If the ESN begins with “213” this is a 2G Vehicle Tracker and is no longer viable in the US.

 

Once your device is activated, just follow the steps below to install your device and ensure the LEDs perform properly.

*BEFORE INSTALLATION, write down the 10 digit ESN number on the back of the device.

  • Review the Vehicle Device Installation Warnings below the LED Guide.
  • Connect the RED WIRE (POWER) to a constant +12 volt DC or +24 volt DC battery power voltage. Connect POWER WIRE directly to your car battery or a fuse with constant power. A great location for installation that provides best access to the GPS satellites is inside the dashboard behind the glove box.
  • Connect the BLACK WIRE (GROUND) to the negative/ ground.
  • White wire installation is an optional upgrade. For FLEET Accounts, connect the WHITE WIRE (Ignition) to a fuse or wire that only has power when the ignition is on. This allows tracking of engine on and off in the daily activity report and idle time reporting.
  • Secure device with provided Velcro strip.

* The GPS Antenna must point towards the sky, with the label facing the ground.

* Best install locations are under the dash close to the front windshield or back of the car near the rear window.

* To ensure successful installation, all three LED lights will flash and then become solid as the device powers up and connects to cellular and GPS.
