    1. Plug the male 9-pin connector into the female 9-pin port located on the AutoTap.

    2. Insert the male 15-pin connector located on the Motive Vehicle Gateway into the 15-pin female end
    of the cable.


    3. Now, to connect Vehicle Gateway + AutoTap to Vehicle, insert the male 15-pin connector into the opposite side of the AutoTap.

    4. In the vehicle, verify that the engine is OFF. Then, plug the male OBD-II 16-pin connector into vehicle’s

    5. Start the vehicle and let it run. After approximately two minutes, the right-side indicator should start
    flashing red indicating a successful connection to the vehicle.
