I have a cadence z1200 and i installed it yesterday and i had to go to work so im driving down the street listening (not loud at all just enough though) and its working fine and i see theres a car stopped in the middle of the street so i speed up to pass them and when i speed up my amp quits working and goes into Safe mode. it has yet to come out out safe mode. ive checked polarities,thermal problems,overload problems,fuses,changed grounds and even completely unplugged everything and plugged it back together. can anyone help me with this?

Re: Cadence z1200 stays in Safe Mode!
If the subs are rmoved from the amp (wiring), does the amp still go into protection without them hooked up? If no, shorted sub, if it still des, unplug RCA's, does it still go into protection? Also check voltage. Make SURE you have greater than 12 volts AT THE AMP using amps ground to check the power AND remote wires. Hit me back wth an update.Those amps rock.

The computer goes into Transport Mode when it detects the bike is moving without the wheel moving (as on a car carrier) so that means the wheel sensor is not working. If you take a magnet and pass it right by the sensor several times and get no cadence count then the wire is broken or the cadence portion of the computer is non-functional. Unless it's the wire and you can fix it you need to buy a new computer.
This is probably a pairing problem. Device and cadence should be paired. Pairing is often lost when changing battery.
Pairing the Edge 305 and sensors
Once you have installed the Garmin Edge 305 and the
cadence sensor they need to be paired. As they communicate wirelessly
with each other the Edge needs to connect to each sensor before it can
receive input from it.
The initial pairing needs to be done away from other
wireless systems this allows the Edge to pick up the sensors it is
supposed to be monitoring. This is a little like black magic, but it
seems to work quite easily.
The cadence sensor has a small press contact which puts the sensor into pairing mode. The HRM just seemed to connect by itself.
Subsequent pairing is much faster as the Edge 305 seems
to remember which sensors it is paired with. If you have problems or
need to change one of the sensors then you can use a setup feature to
either turn the sensor off or to re-pair it.
Reset the training computer by pressing all the buttons simultaneously for two seconds until the display fills with digits. Press any button and set the time and date in Basic Settings after the reset. All other settings are saved. Skip the rest of the settings by pressing and holding STOP.
Polar Cadence Sensor W.I.N.D.
To activate the cadence sensor in your training computer, select Settings > Features > Shoes/bikes > Bike 1/2/3 > On > Cadence > On.
Teach new sensor? is displayed.
• If your sensor is already taught, select No. • To teach a new sensor, make sure that there are no other cadence sensors nearby (40 m/131 ft) and then select Yes. After selecting Yes, Start test drive is displayed. Rotate the crank a few times to activate the sensor. The flashing red light indicates that the sensor is activated. Completed is displayed after the teaching has been finished. The training computer is now ready to receive cadence data. To return to time mode, press and hold the STOP button.
What LED are you talking about that keeps flashing?
If it's the LED on the controller board in the furnace, they blink with a cadence that you need to watch. There will be a data sheet somewhere on the furnace that will tell you what the cadence (flash cadence) is.
Had the same problem. Here is how I fixed it. 1. Changed the battery in the cadence sensor. (GSC10) 2. Turned on my garmin 305 edge outside to acquire satellites (probably not nec but did it anyway) 3. Pressed reset on the GSC10, saw red/green flash (what order?) 4. Here's the missing step: On the Edge unit, go to SYSTEM. 5. Scroll to bottom, choose ACCESSORIES. 6. On acc. page, go to bottom, under Cadence Sensor, to the option RESTART SCAN. Press That. Now your cadence and speed should work.
