Car alarm goes off 30 seconds after disarm and open a door

Apparently the alarm is set to passive arming and, once you disarm it, it immediately begins the arming process and it is not registering the door being open. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the alarm door trigger is wired to the dome light and the dome light is turned off; an issue that occurs with GM vehicles that have a dome light override switch. What's the year, make and model of the vehicle?

Most low flow alarms are caused by the pump stopping before the chlorinator cycle ends. You must set the chlorinator hrs between the pump cycle. Start and set your pump cycle, wait at least15 to 30 minutes and then set you chlorinator hrs and make sure to it completes it's cycle at least 15 to 30 minutes before the pump cycle ends, If your pump turns off before the chlorinator cycle ends, you will get a low flow alarm......

Bought saltwater system last year ~ loved it!!! This summer the system continues to say, "low flow" and now the water is almost green???? Help!!!

Keep in mind, as soon as the system detects low flow, it turns the electrolytic cells off to prevent from burning them up.. If you have good flow and still get this alarm, check the flow sensor for dirty, stuck, defective or broken. See picture below..

My van wont start anymore i believe its the fuel pump...but i dont want to buy another one if thats not the problem..what do i have to look at to find out if its the fuel pump or not?

You should be able to hear the fuel pump, With the key in ignition turn to the ACC position do you hear a humming noise. If no then you need a fuel pump , If yes then youll need to troubleshoot other area of concern

I have an sr500 stingl system on my spa, the motor keeps shuting down and alarming giving a code error 17. I reset the punp as the direction say, try to reset the pump it comes for about one minuite then...

Had same problem I think its s defect. I had to jump out the stingl to keep pump running because I was getting a 30 second fluctuations of voltage being passed through the line side of the switch. I had constant 110 v going in but 110 v coming out for 30 seconds then 0 v and back and forth until alarm sounded. My relays and wiring were all good so it has to be the stingl. They were in such a rush to produce them for the new law that they were not tested properly and have had many problems. This is my third stingl for the same operation all having different problems. I'd contact the company for a replacement.

Our pump continuosly beeps and reads low matter what we do.!! Help!! I thought this would keep our water clean like the other reviews I have read. We currently have the Intex 12x4 and are using...

It says low flow because that is what is happening.
You either have air in the system, or blockage

Start by checking your hoses and both inlet and outlet areas.
Also check where the inlet hose goes into the motor
there is a plastic grid molded into the front of the motor housing where the hose connects to
this area cloggs up with all kinds of debris

no hook every thing back up
open the bleeder screw on top of the cartridge a few turns and if your motor has one open it also

now open your outlet side first and wait for water to come out of the bleeders
now open the inlet side
now turn pump on for 30 seconds and close the bleeders motor one first if you have one

this should do it

as for thinking the salt system keeps your pool cleaner that is 50% correct
Many things factor into keeping any pool crystal clear
first off the pump is no where near strong enough to circulate the water and therefor causing you to need to filter almost 24/7

There is really to much for me to type for everything you need to know

Please pull up my name and read some of my posts for green water,low flow,
and other code problems
I am sure you will find them all helpfull
I have been running my system and the same 2 filters this being my 4th season and have never gone green or triggered any alarms

Good luck

Hi i have a 18 x 48 above ground intex frame pool with a salt water pump /chlorinator system. i have put the required amount of salt in 75 kg and it has fully desolved. the alarm keep coming up on the pump...

the amount of salt that they reccomend in the book is just a starting point
You need to get a salt test kit that reads in #'s not colors
Get your pool to as close to 3000ppm as possible
lower than 2800ppm and you will not produce enough chlorine
any higher than 3500ppm and you can trigger high salt alarm, have bad tasting water, or even get cloudy water
Like you have done, when adding salt , filter only for 6 hours or so to fully disolve

If your pool has the skimmer system there is a hose coming from the bottom of the skimmer to the wall of the pool which would be your suction to the pump. Disconnect the hose clamp from the suction port that goes through the wall of the pool remove the hose then unscrew the blue adapter on the inside of the pool there you will find a strainer / screen. Whatever gets pass the basket in the skimmer get's plugged up in that screen causing the pump to starve for water causing the LOW FLOW sensor to go off on the Saltwater pump.

Let me know if this helps any.
