Safety information
• The product was developed, manufactured and inspected
according to the basic safety requirements of
EC Guidelines and state-of-the-art technology.
• The instrument is designed for use in grounded vehicles and
machines as well as in pleasure boats, including non-classified
commercial shipping.
• Use our product only as intended. Use of the product for reasons
other than its intended use may lead to personal injury, property
damage or environmental damage. Before installation, check the
vehicle documentation for vehicle type and any possible special
• Use the assembly plan to learn the location of the fuel/hydraulic/
compressed air and electrical lines!
• Note possible modifications to the vehicle, which must be considered
during installation!
• To prevent personal injury, property damage or environmental
damage, basic knowledge of motor vehicle/shipbuilding electronics
and mechanics is required.
• Make sure that the engine cannot start unintentionally during
• Modifications or manipulations to VDO products can affect safety.
Consequently, you may not modify or manipulate the product!
• When removing/installing seats, covers, etc., ensure that lines are
not damaged and plug-in connections are not loosened!
• Note all data from other installed instruments with volatile electronic

be protected from direct contact and damage. The cables in use
must have sufficient insulation and electric strength and the contact
points must be safe from touch.
• Use appropriate measures to also protect the electrically conductive
parts on the connected consumer from direct contact. Laying metallic, uninsulated cables and contacts is prohibited.
Safety after installation:
• Connect the ground cable tightly to the negative terminal of the
• Reenter/reprogram the volatile electronic memory values.
• Check all functions.
• Use only clean water to clean the components. Note the Ingress
Protection (IP) ratings (IEC 60529).
Electrical connection:
• Note cable cross-sectional area!
• Reducing the cable cross-sectional area leads to higher current
density, which can cause the cable cross-sectional area in question
to heat up!
• When installing electrical cables, use the provided cable ducts and
harnesses; however, do not run cables parallel to ignition cables or
to cables that lead to large electricity consumers.
• Fasten cables with cable ties or adhesive tape. Do not run cables
affect or limit vehicle functions. Avoid damaging these components!
• Only install undamaged parts in a vehicle!
• During installation, ensure that the product does not impair the field
of vision and that it cannot impact the driver’s or passenger’s head!
• A specialized technician should install the product. If you install the
product yourself, wear appropriate work clothing. Do not wear loose
clothing, as it may get caught in moving parts. Protect long hair with
a hair net.
• When working on the on-board electronics, do not wear metallic or
conductive jewelry such as necklaces, bracelets, rings, etc.
• If work on a running engine is required, exercise extreme caution.
Wear only appropriate work clothing as you are at risk of personal
injury, resulting from being crushed or burned.
• Before beginning, disconnect the negative terminal on the battery,
otherwise you risk a short circuit. If the vehicle is supplied by auxiliary batteries, you must also disconnect the negative terminals on
these batteries! Short circuits can cause fires, battery explosions and
damages to other electronic systems. Please note that when you
disconnect the battery, all volatile electronic memories lose their input
values and must be reprogrammed.
• If working on gasoline boat motors, let the motor compartment fan
run before beginning work.
over moving parts. Do not attach cables to the steering column!
• Ensure that cables are not subject to tensile, compressive or
shearing forces.
• If cables are run through drill holes, protect them using rubber
sleeves or the like.
• Use only one cable stripper to strip the cable. Adjust the stripper
so that stranded wires are not damaged or separated.
• Use only a soft soldering process or commercially available crimp
connector to solder new cable connections!
• Make crimp connections with cable crimping pliers only. Follow the
safety instructions of the tool manufacturer.
• Insulate exposed stranded wires to prevent short circuits.
• Caution: Risk of short circuit if junctions are faulty or cables are
• Short circuits in the vehicle network can cause fires, battery explosions and damages to other electronic systems. Consequently,
all power supply cable connections must be provided with weldable
connectors and be sufficiently insulated.
• Ensure ground connections are sound.
• Faulty connections can cause short circuits. Only connect cables
according to the electrical wiring diagram.
• If operating the instrument on power supply units, note that the
power supply unit must be stabilized and it must comply with the
following standard: DIN EN 61000, Parts 6-1 to 6-4.
• Pay attention to how lines and cable harnesses are laid so that you
do not drill or saw through them!
• Do not install the product in the mechanical and electrical airbag
• Do not drill holes or ports in load-bearing or stabilizing stays or tie
• When working underneath the vehicle, secure it according to the
specifications from the vehicle manufacturer.

Safety during installation:
• During installation, ensure that the product’s components do not
installation location. Required mounting depth: 65 mm.
• Drill small ports; enlarge and complete them, if necessary, using
taper milling tools, saber saws, keyhole saws or files. Debur edges.
Follow the safety instructions of the tool manufacturer.
• Use only insulated tools, if work is necessary on live parts.
• Use only the multimeter or diode test lamps provided, to measure
voltages and currents in the vehicle/machine or boat. Use of conventional test lamps can cause damage to control units or other electronic systems.
• The electrical indicator outputs and cables connected to them must
