How to Install
The installation process consists of four main steps:
Installing the GSM module
Installing the GSM antenna
Installing the button with indicator lamp
Connecting the wiring harness to the heater and the GSM module
We will explain each step in detail below.
Step 1: Installing the GSM module
The GSM module is the main component of the ThermoCall TC4 remote control. It communicates with your phone and controls your heater. You need to install it in a dry and secure location inside your vehicle, preferably under the dashboard or behind the glove compartment. You should avoid placing it near heat sources, metal objects, or electronic devices that may interfere with its signal.
To install the GSM module, follow these steps:
Remove the cover of the GSM module by sliding it off.
Insert the SIM card into the slot on the GSM module. Make sure it is oriented correctly and clicks into place.
Attach the GSM module to a suitable location using screws or cable ties. Make sure it is firmly fixed and does not rattle or move.
Reattach the cover of the GSM module by sliding it on.
Step 2: Installing the GSM antenna
The GSM antenna is a small black device that enhances the signal reception of the GSM module. You need to install it on a flat metal surface on your vehicle's roof, preferably near the center. You should avoid placing it near other antennas, windows, or sunroofs that may reduce its performance.
To install the GSM antenna, follow these steps:
Clean and dry the surface where you want to place the antenna.
Remove the protective film from the adhesive pad on the bottom of the antenna.
Press the antenna firmly onto the surface and hold it for a few seconds.
Route the antenna cable inside your vehicle and connect it to the GSM module. Make sure there are no sharp bends or kinks in the cable.
Step 3: Installing the button with indicator lamp
The button with indicator lamp is a small device that allows you to manually start and stop your heater from inside your vehicle. It also shows you the status of your heater with different colors and flashes. You need to install it in a visible and accessible location on your dashboard or console. You should avoid placing it near air vents, aa16f39245
