Tips and questions relating to the GPS modules from SFE
By cs1986
Hi all,

I followed the instructions on the PDF doc but I can't turn this module on!
The power LED is on. but it says the STAT LED is supposed to blink when i hold the on/off button for 2 seconds, but it didn't.

the LED and on/off button themselves works fine, I tested it.

Am I missing something?

Mine just turns on - might be worth reseating the module on the board it if you haven't already tried that.
HI be sure press the bottom al least 5 Sec until green light starts to blink the module is turn on and be sure that you have conected the power supply if dont your module will works but without the sim card so if put on the sim card and you try to connect to a network it turns off because only with the usb connector it can only supply 0.5 A at max an the module needs 2A max so you will need to add power connector i hope this will help you :arrow:
