Instructions for Model Numbers 72601, 72609, 72628, 72652


  1. Set up pads along side car. Scale pads are marked RF, LR, etc. and should be used at that location.
  2. Set up control box in a convenient location and connect cables to the pads. Cables are marked and must be used for that pad.
  3. Turn on control box, allow to warm up for a minute or so.
  4. Push Zero. This defines "0" weight. DON'T PUSH ‘ZERO’ AFTER CAR IS ON SCALES.
  5. Lift car and place pads under the wheels. "Shake" car up & down at each corner to settle out shock or suspension friction.
  • Control box shuts off after 1+ hour. Push ON/Off to turn back on (DO NOT re-zero unless car is off pads)
  • If you turn off just the control box after 1 minute pads go into "standby" mode. If control box is turned back on within 1 hour pads will go back to active. If the green LED is out you will need to turn the pads back on also.
  • Keep the system clean and dry. Do not drop either the pads or the control box.
