The installation of the Health Monitor is pretty simple. Usually, you just need to plug in the device and pair it in within the ZUS app.
The OBD-II port is usually located under the dashboard, beneath the steering wheel column (1-3 in the diagram below). If it is not located beneath the steering wheel column, look for the port in the areas indicated by numbers 4-9.
The Key Points for Pairing
- Turn on GPS+Bluetooth+Internet on your phone, and the monitor lights should be blinking（not off/on) before starting to pair.
- Pair the monitor in the ZUS app instead of the system Bluetooth menu.
- Blinking: Monitor is not connected/ paired with the ZUS App. Please turn on Bluetooth+GPS+Internet and the ZUS app.
- Solid Lights: Monitor is connected to the ZUS App and the connected phone/tablet is nearby. You may switch off your phone system Bluetooth to see if it's connected to this phone. If the lights are still solid, please check if the ZUS app is installed on another iOS/Android device nearby.
- No lights: The monitor is not getting power. Please make sure the monitor is properly plugged in.
Step-by-step instructions to pair ZUS SVHM:
Click on > Choose "Smart Vehicle Health Monitor" > Add "ZUS Smart Vehicle Health Monitor" > Follow the app instructions to complete pairing.
When the ZUS app is connected, your Smart Vehicle Health Monitor lights will become solid.
Q1: What can this Health Monitor do?
When you are driving, you may put your phone next to the dashboard and check the numbers. For some cars, it won't have the exact number but a range only. So this monitor can show you more about your car's performance when driving.
The safety center provides you with a way to be a professional doctor for your car. When the "Check Engine Light" is on next time, you just need to scan and read the detailed explanation about OBD II Trouble Codes, and then decide if you need to go for a check. If it's not a problem, you may use the safety center to clear the code and the lights won't show on your dashboard anymore.
Q2: Why aren’t the lights on the smart vehicle health monitor on?
- Please check if your car supports OBD-II
- Please make sure you the OBD is firmly plugged in. Please unplug and plug again.
Q3: My vehicle health monitor is blinking but unable to connect.
- Please turn off the car, unplug the monitor and plug again. Some cars just need to do this twice.
- You may also try it in another car to test whether the product is defective or if there is a compatibility problem with the car.
Q4: Why is there no data on the pro dashboard?
- Please power off the car, unplug and plug again. Some cars need to try twice.
- You may also try in the other car to see if it's the product is defective or the compatibility problem with the car.
Q5: Why is there no number on TURBO?
It would show the number if:
- The car has a turbo. (Usually, your car model would come with a T like 3.0T/2.0T. )
- You start driving.
- The revs reach a high enough level and trigger the turbo.
If all three conditions are met but you still cannot see the Turbo data, it means that the monitor cannot access to your car's turbo data. You may contact our customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q6: Why is the speed read by the OBD different from the speed displayed on my car's dashboard?
Our OBD is very sensitive, and reflects the speed of the car faster than the car’s odometer. Most car odometers are designed to be 2-10% faster than actual speed to avoid car accidents. Our monitor is set at 5% faster than the actual speed. So if your car odometer is set 2% faster, it would show a faster speed in the App.
Q7: Why is my battery drained over a period of time?
If ZUS' lights are off after you've turned off the ignition, there will be no battery drain problem.
If ZUS' lights are on after the ignition is off, especially when the light is still on after 2 hours or
during the whole night, and the car will not be moved for more than 3 weeks, we
recommend that you unplug ZUS from the socket.
Some cars will detect the monitor and keep working when the monitor is plugged in. The monitor itself doesn't consume much power. It's actually the components of the car triggered by the monitor that drain the battery.
Q8: Why won't my scan results show the details of all codes?
We are actively updating the database of our app scan results with rich explanations, and before the new database is synced in the App, we created a website of OBD2 codes that you may encounter.
