If battery is OK, check battery contacts, clean them up with alcohol or similar chemical.

Check also humidity in HR device

I go to turn the van on and all i get is a click, all lights come on and battery tested out fine. Tried jumping it didnt work, mechanic took a hammer to the starter still didnt work. Any advice will help...


If the battery cables and battery check out fine then test for 12 volts at the signal wire at the starter when the ingnition key is turned to start. If 12 volts is present then the starter is bad or the ground strap from the engine to chassis is not getting a good connection. You can test for the the ground by placing a jumper cable to the negative battery post and the engine.

No 12 volts when cranking? Then check relay or ignition switch.

You can apply 12 volts to the signal wire at the starter to verify it will turn.

Do the interior lights dim when the key is turned to start?

Chest strap stopped working


This can be caused by a number of factors from dead battery to lost signal. I have on my tips and tricks page a checklist for HR signals and causes for disruption.

If it is the Battery then...

#1 - Hard strap, only remedy is too replace, batteries are sealed in.

#2 - Soft strap (wearlink), these have a replaceable battery 2025 and you can do this yourself.

I have a Polar F11, It worked fine until it began to show 200 bpm or 00, I bought a new strip and it works fine during 10 months but now I am having a similar problem. it begin to show my heart rate but...


If you visit www.polarusa.com they have guidelines and life expectancies, it is also in your owners manual.

The HR reading can be caused by several issues some environmental some within the watch or strap, please visit my tips and tricks page for a detailed listing as well as if you need a new owners manual.

On the straps for an F11 those have a user replaceable battery, your battery may be the thing that is wearing out, not the whole strap. Try a new battery in the strap (wearlink connector) before buying an entire new strap.

The gels work by providing greater conductivity, yes they work, but you may or may not need it. depends on why you are having a signal issue.

Changed the battery and now it won't pick up the heart rate monitor. I know the monitor works because it is picked up by all the equipment in the gym.


If Heart Rate is being displayed on the equipment in the gym, but not your watch, then your chest strap is transmitting fine, but the watch is not recieving the signal.

It is not uncommon that when a battery is changed outside of a polar authorized service center that something can happen to the internal electronics. I would suggest you send the watch into Polar and have them take a look. if you have had the watch less than 2 years they will most likely take it under warranty and correct the issue, at the very least they have equipment to test and diagnose both the watch and strap, although it sounds like your HR strap is fine since you are getting HR on the machines.

The speed (and worst of all distance) was droppping out now and then also the heart rate would hit 200 when rolling down hill. I think I have fixed this problem by leaving the phone at home. I've ridden...


2 Seperate issues:

Heart Rate - The CS200cad uses a coded transmission for the HR, When you have a HR that spikes that high, it is because for some reason the signal has not coded correctly. Here are a number of ways to help with that issue.
1. Make sure you have good contact between your chest strap and your skin.
2. Make sure the Heart rate sensors on the strap are wet. Or use a conductive cream to improve contact.
3. Make sure the strap is on correctly. Up high on the chest just under breasts, Polar symbol centered on chest and upright. Strap tight enough to keep from slipping
4. If the strap is older, make sure it is clean. Salt can build up in the strap.
5. If the strap is over 2 years old consider replacing.
6. Check Battery

For the Speed/ Distance - Same sensor (front) make sure that the magnet on the wheel is within 1-2mm of the Fork sensor. The magnet should align in the middle of the sensor, with the sensor just slightly angled into the magnet. When the magnet and sensor have a good signal a small red light will flash and you may hear a click when the wheel is rotated. If none of this works you have a low battery and will need to replace that front sensor.

My F11 Polar HR monitor is not working correctly


You should have someone who is use to servicing heart rate monitors take a look at it. There are parts in the monitor that can corrode and would need to be cleaned. Also, look into replacing the battery in both units (Strap and wrist) and make sure the unit is reset properly.

My Polar HR monitor ce0537 do not pickup Hart rate


Had the same problem. Just figured it out. The center Polar Logo on the strap needs to touch your chest in a firm way. Bend it back slightly so it fits snug on the middle of your chest.

Garmin 405 pair to wrong HRM


I Have had the same problem couple of times (and forgotten each time how I solved it). I figured it out just now and this is what I did.

1) turn on unit and put on heart monitor (make sure battery is good and wet heart strap)
2) using the mode button navigate the menus to: Settings: General: Accessories: Heart Rate Monitor
3) Once in the Heart Rate Monitor option make sure "Yes" is selected and then use the arrow buttons to highlight "Restart Scan" . Press the enter button to rescan for your heart monitor. (I had to rescan twice)
Go back to the main monitor screen to see if you are recieving heart rate signals.

I am not sure why a manual rescan needs to be done every time but it would be nice if Garmin fixed this issues in a unit software update (my unit has software version 2.80)
