    Laser always going off. Worked fine for about a year and then suddenly laser is going nuts, even in residential areas, and at night, where there is no reason for the laser to go off.

    I haven't payed enough attention to notice the affects of weather influencing the frequency of these laser alerts. But now that you mention it.... we have a lot of snow around. I wonder if there is some sort of reflection of bounce of signals? Last night it was so bad, I had to unplug the thing. The first couple of times that it went off while I was backing out of my garage, it scared the s____ out of me. I am going to see if my Blackberry has anything to do with it. Please let me know if you have any sucess solving this problem.

    Thank you,

    Neal

    Escort Passport 8500 X50 Radar Detector. For the past three weeks the Laser signal on my radar detector keeps going off all the time in the middle of no where.

    Any suggestions

    Mine goes off under hard acceleration. The only thing I could figure out was maybe its the change in light going to it that trips it. It also goes off when I turn on the wipers. It didn't do it when it was new. I wondering if dust got in the thing.

Mine had a similar problem. Except it was Ka going off almost constantly. Luckily I was able to fix it, maybe it will work with laser constantly going off.

1. Disassemble the unit (there are 3 screws on the bottom)
2. The plastic casing will be free now to be pulled off.
3. Now you have the complete circuit board, you want to remove the metal channel casing that covers the rear part of the board. I believe there were 5 or so screw on the bottom you will need to get with a precision screw driver.
4. Once the metal cover is removed clean everything thoroughly with a q-tip. In my case the gold plated channel the metal case covered has some spots that were dirty and once that was clean I haven't had any other problems.

Can use an electric scooter in the rain
Can I use an electric scooter in the rain? Posted on October 19, 2015 by gridsolarsystemOf course,you can.
How to ride your E-scooter in the rain?
The rainy season is here and it is pouring like cats and dogs. Most of the e-scooter drivers have this one common question in their mind and that is how to ride the e-scooter in the rain? Well, it is a valid question and today we are going to find the best answer to it. One of the main reasons why people feel afraid to drive the electric scooter in the rain is because they think that they might get an electric shock. But in actual e-scooters are perfectly safe even when it is raining.
When should you not ride the E-scooter in the rain?
The foremost important point to keep in mind is to make sure that you should never drive the electrical scooter when the visibility is less. If it is a light rain, then there is no problem but if there is a torrential downpour happening, then you should not venture outside on an e-scooter. Lack of visibility can prove to be quite harmful and hence you should make sure that proper care is being taken during heavy rains.
You should also make it a point that if there is a freezing rain happening then also you should avoid driving the e-scooter. If there are snow and rain happening then, there are chances that the tyres may slip.
Excessive rain may cause the chrome on the electric scooter to turn into rust. Excess of moisture may dampen the chrome plating. Typically, this happens if the chrome plating is of low Hence, you should always make sure that high-quality electric scooter is bought and that you can only get from reputed suppliers.
Never drive through standing water
If you see knee deep water on the road, then you should immediately stop. This stagnant water may get into the scooter and can cause extensive damage to the delicate parts. Moreover, water may lead to soil getting soft and your electric scooter can get stuck in the mud and it becomes difficult for you to get if struck.
You should keep this important thing in your mind and that is to make sure that you drive the scooter at a slow speed. Driving at high speed may cause slippages and may result into
Always wear a safety helmet while riding an electric scooter. Though these scooters can only attain a maximum speed up to 30 mph, but this much speed can prove to be deadly during rainy Hence, controlled and slow speed should always be your first priority.
Finally, never let your kids drive electric scooters on their own during the rainy It is for their safety and you must tell them to avoid driving electric scooters on their own during rains.
The real idea behind driving electric scooter is to enjoy the ride and you can only enjoy your ride by staying safe and by following all the safety precautions. Make sure to follow the points mentioned above so that you can stay safe and also enjoy the rainy season on your e-scooter.

How to wire hunter rain clik rain sensor to r8816p101c


1) There are different rain clik model numbers shown in manual
Open 24 volt Rain clik manual:
http://www.hunterindustries.com/resources/pdfs/instructions/domestic/lit358w.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Hunter-rain-clik-instruction-manual.pdf

2) The rain sensor has two wires.
And two additional wires are needed to run from rain sensor to sprinkler timer. For example, buy thermostat wire from local hardware store if wire is not supplied.

3) The rain sensor has a terminal block where wires are connected. .
Open manual above to identify markings on your terminal block.
For example Figure 1 shows SRC model, and with this model number, the rain sensor wires connect to terminals RS and C, and then two wires going to timer connect to terminals RS and and 1.

4) R8816P101C is 208-240Volt 24-hour irrigation timer.
Timer has two separate terminals for attaching rain sensor.

5) Timer power connections have 4 terminals. Do not connect rain sensor to power terminals.
Connect wires from sensor to the two sensor terminals.

6) Timer slide-switch must be set to ON position for rain sensor operation.
Sensor sends continuous 24Volts to irrigation timer.
When it rains, the rain sensor stops sending 24Volts to timer. Timer responds by not turning on power to irrigation pump.
To by-pass rain sensor, move timer slide-switch to off position.

7) Open following link for Intermatic replacement parts:

8) Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

This symptom almost always points to a mechanical issue, not an electrical one. The SLK hardtop is notorious for needing to be lubricated every couple of years. Here is a link with directions and photos:

http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r170-slk-class/1426014-lubing-vario-roof-pics-1-krytox.html

Sticking joints are the most common culprit to intermittent raising and lowering problems. Once those have been lubricated and that has been checked off the list, then consider looking into electrical issues.

The moisture from the rain may be helping to lubricate these joints and that might be why it works fine in the rain...
