- The clock or clocks that have run out turn red on the Zonar ELD main screen.
- A notice pops up on screen informing the driver they are currently in violation. This pop up automatically disappears after 30 seconds.
ELD Data Verify
In order for ELD to be compliant, certain data is needed from the vehicle. This page provides insight into ELD connections to the vehicle and TCU to help identify and troubleshoot missing data.
The page consists of three tabs, each with different data as described below. A Refresh button in the upper right can be tapped to see if there is any updated data from the vehicle.
ELD Required Data Connection Status
This tab only reports whether the ELD is receiving necessary data to be compliant. Each data point reports the following information:
- Data: The name of the data point.
- Value: The current value of the data point, if any.
- Last Updated: The date and time the ELD received the most recent data point from the vehicle.
- Connection Status: Displays green if the ELD is currently receiving connection data from the vehicle, otherwise displays red.
ELD Health Data
This tab displays the history of diagnostics and malfunctions for the vehicle. The history helps diagnose whether or not the ELD has repeated issues with connecting to the vehicle.
- Data: The data point being measured.
- Value: The number of times the described data point has occurred.
- Last Updated: The most recent time the data point has occurred.
ELD Provisioning Data
This page provides deeper technical detail on the connections to the vehicle and TCU. These details can further assist in troubleshooting, typically in conjunction with Zonar Customer Support.
- Data: The data point being measured.
- ELD: Data received directly from the vehicle's ECM. This data is necessary for compliance.
- Calculated: Data calculated via TCU internal sensors. This data is non-compliant, but may be useful for troubleshooting.
- Value: The value being reported by the data point. If ELD and Calculated differ significantly, this may be a sign that the ELD is either receiving bad data from the ECM or is not receiving data at all.
- Source Address: The source of the data.
- Databus: The type of source of the data. If ELD and Calculated differ significantly, this may be a sign that the ELD is not receiving data from the current vehicle.
- Connection: Displays green if the ELD is currently receiving connection data from the vehicle, otherwise displays red.
This page displays which Diagnostic and Malfunction codes are currently active.
- When a code is active, it is represented with a red checkmark in the Status column.
- When a code is not active, the Status column is blank.
To view a history of a specific code, tap the entry in the list.
For more information on the definition of these codes, see the Diagnostics and Malfunctions page.
