1. Car steps are installed without drilling holes. Regardless of whether it is installed by yourself or by a professional master, you must carefully read the installation manual of the step of the model before installing, and install it according to the steps. Note: The car body is free of drilling when  install of the step. If the holes are not aligned, please be sure to check the installation manual again.

3.2 When installing the electric side step ECU and wiring, be sure to avoid high-heat parts such as the engine casing and exhaust pipe to avoid damage to the product.

3.3 Although the ECU of the side step has a waterproof function, it is best not to flush or soak. Therefore, install the main box in a location where rain or car wash water is not easy to enter.

3.4 When connecting the signal line, be sure to avoid the two line short-circuiting or short-circuit with the car body, and be sure to use the wire clip provided by the manufacturer. If it is not sensitive after installation, you can remove the wire clamp and wire it separately.
