Question about Gb Electrical Gardner Bender Circuit Alert Non-Contact Voltage Detector

1 Answer

My GB circuit alert is too sensitive. It alarms too far from wires, and as a result it is almost impossible to tell which wires are dead or live when you come close to a bunch of wires. Is there anyway to adjust the alert device.

Laser alert constantly goes off


Laser is very sensitive to false alarms often set off when driving by an airport, or military base. Set your laser on City Mode and pay attention exactly where it goes off. Mine goes off constantly in the same place which is a air force base in Tucson, AZ. Unless you drive like crazy shut it off in the city although the cops like to use a hand held one in school zones. In 6 years of driving in Arizona I have had one real laser alert, and other than false alerts, real ones are far and few in between. Check when and where the unit alerts and use different sensitivity settings. One more thing, if your laser warning goes off you already have the ticket since the cops use them at close range unlike the radar bands. Hope this helps.

My SA67D is too sensitive...can this be adjusted?


It cannot be adjusted. If the location is not an issue the unit may be dirty, if so it should be replaced.

Box fuse picture


old post, and I feel your pain or others land here.
yes, The IMMO(alarm) on the car can kill the engine dead
some cut fuel, others cut cranking.
The 96 prizm/corolla. is what it is.
early cars were (daffy) and easy to hack ,done most.
if the immo lamp stick on what to do. lacking new alarm programming or repairs to same. how to HACK.
hack IMMO 101:
the answer can very by make of car and year, newer cars are impossible.
do not confuse words writting about 1991 car , on a 96
they are worlds apart(evolution, and LAWS)
your alarm box is called.
doors and locks and theft deterrent.
as expected its got a zillion pins, (big job it has)
but only 1 pin matters, (hacking mind set) pin A1 SRLY
im no genius, im just and electronics tech, retire. and can read this print , here at mitchells so can you.
the print shows that pin as P, my guess for Purple wire.
next is the starter pages.
it shows, what? it goes to the starter relay coil
and the non alarm car wire ground there is missing
so there is your fix, ground the purple wire there
or at pin 2 of relay start, ground that.
now the starter cranks forever, no matter what , deity willing.

The AM1 fuse kills the live relay power.
or pull battery neg lug, and all is off line, 0volts.
The GIG+DOME+HORN fuse kills dead the alarm box
or
pull the AM2 or the power fuel.
so will the 100 amp ALT fuse.

all this in the book , the schematic, all that.
just ground the P wire. end story

watch out for door locks, keep windows open , killing this alarm box. as it runs all door lock motor......... !!!

Light blinks rapidly on both sides on some plugs and once on one side and multiple times on the other


There is no polarity-only active... Blinking means live wire. The further you get from active the slower it blinks....

Ademco motion detector false alarms


Aside from any sensitivity adjustments, after all a false alarm caused by falling objects, pets or juicy bugs is not a false alarm..it's an environmental mismatch of sensor to the area, some motion detector false alarms are caused by circuit faults, possibly during the install, where the wire terminals were turned too hard and twisted slightly and are not as solid as the manufacturer intended. This twisted terminal mount could cause false alarms when either the power circuit or the sensor circuit loses continuity. Intermittent power (caused by weak/loose/nicked/damaged wiring, a weak terminal on the board or power supply problems could cause annoying faults that are hard to trace. Diligence and a good eye to spot these problems and correct them will help you determine the cause of false alarms.

In the case of wireless devices, troubleshooting is usually limited to spotless battery contacts, good batteries and proper placement.

Two first alert smoke detectors go off for no reason. All are on 110 with good batteries. Have had these for approx. 12 years with no problems until now when 2 of the 7 have gone off many times in the last...


There may be dust built up in the sensing chamber. This can cause alarms to go off for no reason. Try vacuuming the alarm off particularly around the sensor if the cover is removable. These alarms should be replaced however, as they are more than 10 years old.

I have a viper 5900 car alarm installed with remote start.


Look under dash for a small black box with wires coming out of it, about 2 or 3 inches rectangular.. there should be one or two screws on it. Look to see if it says which direction to turn for sensitivity. As far as not receiving, you need a new antenna, this is covered under warranty through DEI either bring back to where you purchased or look online and see where the closest dealer is to you...
