Introduction

This guide will provide Installation instruction for installing a Xirgo Xt63xx with the Volvo Diagnostic Backbone Harness for Volvo & Mack trucks 2018+.

  1. Record serial number The serial number will be needed to link the unit to the vehicle and to verify operation. It is best to record before starting installation.
    • Record serial number

    • The serial number will be needed to link the unit to the vehicle and to verify operation. It is best to record before starting installation.

    • Diagnostic harness plug

    • The diagnostic adapter harness will plug in here

    • I/O harness plug

    • The I/O harness will plug in here

    • Diagnostic LEDs

    • See next step for identification

  2. GPS LED OFF = Searching for satellites
    • GPS LED OFF = Searching for satellites

    • GPS Flashing = Satellite count +1

    • Com LED OFF = No power to device

    • Com LED Flashing = Ignition OFF

    • Com LED Flashing Fast = Searching for cellular; Ignition ON

    • Com LED Solid = Cellular lock; Ignition ON

    • BT LED OFF = Bluetooth not connected

    • BT LED Flashing = Bluetooth connected

  8. Locate terminating resistor Example locations -
    • Locate terminating resistor

    • Example locations -

    • Mack

    • Top front left corner of power distribution module

    • Volvo

    • Accessed from front of center dash; under power distribution module

  9. Identify J1939 (DL1) terminating resistor.
    • Identify J1939 (DL1) terminating resistor.

    • Clearly identified on label as DL1 J1939

    • DO NOT CONNECT TO DL3 J1939 !

  10. Remove terminating resistor Install the terminating resistor into the universal back bone diagnostic harness provided
    • Remove terminating resistor

    • Install the terminating resistor into the universal back bone diagnostic harness provided

    • This must be installed for the vehicle to operate correctly!

    • Plug the remaining connector from the universal back bone diagnostic harness into where the terminating resistor was removed

  11. Plug the2018+ power adapter into the universal back bone diagnostic harness 3 pin at end of cable
    • Plug the2018+ power adapter into the universal back bone diagnostic harness

    • 3 pin at end of cable

    • Locate Power Expansion plug

    • Mack - Located top of dash

    • Volvo - Located under power distribution module close to J1939

    • Check for +12V

    • If no power is present a fuse may need to be installed. Refer to the label on the bottom of the power distribution cover panel for identification

    • Once power is verified, plug into the harness

  12. Using the 24 pin power harness, locate and connect an Ignition source.  The device will be supplied Battery and Ground through the diagnostic connector & harness.
    • Using the 24 pin power harness, locate and connect an Ignition source. The device will be supplied Battery and Ground through the diagnostic connector & harness.

    • Wire colors:

    • Red = Battery

    • Not used, Do Not Connect. Insulate wire and secure excess wire.

    • White = Ignition

    • Ignition can be found at a connector similar to the one used for battery/ground.

    • Black = Ground

    • Not used, Do Not Connect. Insulate wire and secure excess wire.
