Most if not all units come with a one year warranty. If you bought yours used check the serial number with APC to see if your unit is under warranty. If it is they will send you a new or refurbished one. They have decent customer service and ship pretty fast. Is that warning noise illuminating the replace battery led? If so you may need a new battery especially if it is over a couple of years old. It is cheaper in most cases to get a higher capacity third party battery and replace it yourself then to buy a new ups. Unless yours is not functioning properly or you need a higher capacity unit. Just recycle the batteries and sell the unit if you upgrade.

    Another solution would be to download the manual for your ups unit. There are corrective actions that you can do as listed in their pdf files. You can lower the sensitivity of some of the ups units so they are not going to battery power as frequently and this will extend the life of your ups. If your incoming power is "dirty" then consider buying a voltage regulator such as the apc 1200R and putting it between your ups and the wall. These voltage regulators are better than most ups's that include avr protection and this will prevent the ups from errors and constantly coming on and buzzing as you are supplying clean power to the unit. I have a few of these setups and they work flawlessly even with older apc units like the backups280 and 800 RT. The true advantage is being preventative and not having to spend hard earned money replacing expensive computer and video equipment and the hassle of downtime.

How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe


Hi, on most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for at 6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. <br /> The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. <br /> <br /> <b>How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe </b> <br /> Ignition Key Method: <br /> <ul> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 2 seconds.</li> <li>START Car (the light may be blinking slower than before).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>START Car.</li></ul> <br /> <b>This is a little easier</b> To reset the light simply turn the iginition to the on position, (you dont need to start it). All the lights should stay on for thier diagnostic check. As soon as the airbag light goes off, before it starts flashing, immeditatly turn the car off. Repeat this 3 or 4 times (turning to on then off) and the light should go away

Tyre Pressure and ABS


By operating the tire pressure warning system reset switch, tire pressure warning system ECU can be set to issue a warning at an inflation pressure that corresponds with the type of tires.
Operate the tire pressure warning system reset switch only after the inflation pressures of all 4 tires have been adjusted on the vehicle.
To initialize the system, press and hold the tire pressure warning system reset switch for 3 seconds or longer with the power switch turned IG-ON. When starting the initialization, the tire pressure warning light blinks 3 times at 0.5 Hz.
During the initialization, the tire pressure warning system valve & transmitter measures the inflation
pressure of the tires, and registers the signals that are transmitted into the ECU at a frequency of 1 per
minute. The initialization process is completed when the signals from the tires have been received.
Once the tire pressure warning system reset switch has been pressed, do not turn the Ignition switch OFF for a few minutes.

My child away at college, has a Rav4, 2008 with a warning light on that looks like "tire tread?" Just had the oil changed 2 weeks ago, so shouldn't have anything to do with that. Sound familiar?...


That symbol (tire tread) could mean a low tire pressure. The majority of vehicles today have the low tire pressure warning system, which indicates that one or more of the tires are below the minimum tire pressure. Have the tire pressure checked in each tire. As for turning the warning light off, some vehicles the light will go out after tires are inflated properly. Have them check the owner's manual for resetting warning light. Please inform me as to whether or not it was the tires...thanks.

After recieving a recorded message the base will beep until the messages are played back..it beeps all day until we return home D32051@MSN.COM


There can be a provision in the menu to shut off the beep( warning off) in the message settings.
So check this out and put the warning to OFF. You can normallly choose with light warning or with beep warning.

Service Stability System keeps coming up on my display. It seems to do it right after starting my car and backing up or when coming to a stop sign. The other day I backed out of an area kind of quickly due...


I had the same problem...but I found out that the dealer had rotated incorrectly the tires.
Front and back are different sizes and if a rotation is performent front to rear, you may get a stability light warning.

I corrected my tires and the warning went a way.
