Operating Instructions
A. Listening Tool Mode
To use this device in the "Listening Tool" mode, place the mode selector switch in the "UP" or (-) position.
 
NOTE: While in the "Listening Tool" mode, the LED indicator will be RED in color.
 
This option is used to detect and amplify noises caused by bad bearings and bushings, exhaust leaks, bad plug wires, wind and water leaks and squeaks and rattles under the dash. While using the tool in this mode all sounds will be amplified and "back ground" noises or voices can be heard.
 
B. Vibration Detection Mode
To use this device in the "VIBRATION DETECTION" mode, place the mode selector switch in the "DOWN" or (=) position.
 
NOTE: While in the "VIBRATION DETECTION" mode the LED indicator will be AMBER in color.
 
This option is used by placing the tip or shaft of the flexible wand flush onto the surface of the suspected problem parts.
 
NOTE: Keeping the sensing tip or wand held flush against the suspect part, will help to further isolate the problem area. While in this mode, the sound microphone is disabled and only the vibration sensing microphone is operational. This mode will prevent the device from sensing "background" noises and allow the user to isolate the location of the vibration and/or the faulty component.
