IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS – This manual will show you how to use your
memory saver detector safely and effectively. Please read, understand and follow
these instructions and precautions carefully, as this manual contains important
safety and operating instructions.
WORKING IN THE VICINITY OF A LEAD-ACID BATTERY IS DANGEROUS.
BATTERIES GENERATE EXPLOSIVE GASES DURING NORMAL OPERATION.
FOR THIS REASON, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS
EACH TIME YOU USE THE MEMORY SAVER DETECTOR.
• Read the entire manual before using this product. Failure to do so could result in
serious injury.
• Use the memory saver detector in a well-ventilated area.
• This memory saver detector is not intended for use by children.
• Do not expose the memory saver detector to rain or snow.
• Do not operate the memory saver detector if it has received a sharp blow, been
dropped or otherwise damaged in any way; take it to a qualified service person.
• Inspect the battery for a cracked or broken case or cover. If the battery is
damaged, do not use the memory saver detector.
• Do not disassemble the memory saver detector; take it to a qualified service
person when service or repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may result in a
risk of fire or electric shock.
• Follow these instructions and those published by the battery manufacturer and
the manufacturer of any equipment you intend to use in the vicinity of the battery.
Review the cautionary markings on these products and on the engine.
PERSONAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
• Wear complete eye protection and protective clothing when working near leadacid batteries. Always have someone nearby for help.
• Have plenty of fresh water, soap and baking soda nearby for use, in case battery
acid contacts your eyes, skin or clothing. Wash immediately with soap and water
and seek medical attention.
• If battery acid comes into contact with eyes, flush eyes immediately for at least 10
minutes and get medical attention.
• Neutralize any acid spills thoroughly with baking soda before attempting to clean up.
• Remove all personal metal items from your body, such as rings, bracelets,
necklaces and watches. A lead-acid battery can produce a short circuit current
high enough to weld a ring to metal, causing a severe burn.
• Never smoke or allow a spark or flame in the vicinity of the battery or engine.

USING THE MEMORY SAVER DETECTOR
Use the memory saver detector cable to save the vehicle’s on-board diagnostic
computer settings (radio programs, diagnostic codes, etc.) while the battery is
disconnected from the vehicle during repair or maintenance.
NOTE: Some vehicle manufacturers do not allow the use of a memory saver
through the OBDII. Consult the vehicle manufacturer before use, to determine if
a memory saver is acceptable for use on the vehicle.
1. Make sure that the power source used is greater than or equal to 12VDC. If using
a portable battery device, make sure it is fully charged.
2. Turn off the vehicle, remove the key, and make sure all accessories are off.
WARNING: Verify all vehicle accessories are OFF (fan, interior lights, etc.). Headlights
must be in OFF position, not AUTO position. To prevent overloading of a vehicle
fuse, OBD-L fuse or other vehicle damage, do not use the memory saver through the
OBDII port if the vehicle’s current draw is 4 amps or more when the vehicle is in a
KEY OFF condition (use an amp clamp to measure the amperage draw). If unable to
measure the vehicle’s current draw, turn the vehicle’s key to the OFF position and wait
25 minutes. This ensures that all retained accessories are in a power OFF state (for
example: fan, headlights, etc.).
3. Connect the 12V power plug of the OBD-L to your 12V DC
power supply. Make sure plug is firmly in place. The yellow
CONNECTED LED in box #1 will light, indicating a good
connection.
WARNING: Do not connect the 12V power plug of the OBD-L
into the power outlet within the same vehicle from which you
are removing the battery.
4. Connect the OBD-L 12V OBD diagnostic connector to
the vehicle’s OBD plug. Make sure the connector is fully
engaged. The yellow CONNECTED LED in box #2 will
light, indicating a good connection.
5. Verify that the green PROCEED LED in box #3 is lit, indicating you may disconnect
the vehicle’s battery. If the red DO NOT PROCEED LED in box #3 lights, do not
disconnect the vehicle’s battery; disconnect the OBD-L and check the internal
fuse or contact a qualified service personnel for electrical system repair.
6. Disconnect the vehicle’s battery cables and cover the positive and negative
cables with an insulator, such as electrical tape. This prevents the connectors
from touching metal, each other, or the chassis and causing a short circuit, due to
the vehicle’s electrical system receiving power through the OBD connection.
•3•
WARNING: When working with the vehicle’s battery, review all of the battery
manufacturer’s safety instructions, warnings and directives regarding battery
disconnection, removal and replacement.
7. Remove the old battery and put the new battery into position.
8. Remove the insulator from the positive cable and connect it to the positive
terminal of the new battery.
9. Remove the insulator from the negative cable and connect it to the negative
terminal of the new battery.
10. Once the new battery is connected, unplug the memory saver’s OBD connector from
the vehicle’s OBD plug and disconnect the 12V DC plug from the 12V power supply.
FUSE REPLACEMENT
The 12V power plug adaptor operates with a supplied 5A 250V glass fuse.
1. Access the fuse compartment by turning the tip of the adaptor in a
counterclockwise direction.
NOTE: The fuse is spring-loaded and caution must be taken to ensure that the
spring does not “fly out” of the end of the fuse compartment when it is opened.
2. Remove the fuse and replace it with one of the same type and rating.
3. Close the adaptor by turning the tip in a clockwise direction.
