    I am not sure of the model number but the users guide is for a Monitronics Vista-15PMT

  • David Miller Mar 24, 2011

    This was really of no help. sorry for your trouble.

  • David Miller Mar 24, 2011

    it is a completely different design.

  • David Miller Mar 24, 2011

    Joe, I already have the hard copy of the users manual, so this won't help. I am having someone else look at it for me as I have already tried the button on the bottom of the sensor and that didn't work. I had actually tried that before I even went to this site. Thanks any way for trying.

    Here is a link to a YouTube video demonstrating how to replace the battery in a standard motion sensor:



    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8x_CyqUmT...





    Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and the video clip at the website indicated.



    If your unit is completely different, then just comment back here to this page and I will try to provide you with more accurate information.



    Please comment back here to this page if you have any questions, have difficulty accessing the link, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.



    Thank you very much and good luck.

    Sorry about that.

    Is your motion sensor a completely different design?

    Or did you have trouble opening the link and watching the video?

    You can always Google "MOTION SENSOR" and select the IMAGES option in the top left hand corner of the Google search page. Then, if you see one anywhere that is most like your model, you can click on it and then post the link to it in your return comments so I can have a look at it too. ---Joe.

    Here is a direct link to the USER'S MANUAL for your model:



    http://alarmassociatesinc.com/vista%2020...





    To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated or the contents of the Owner's Manual.



    You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents. You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary. Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there.



    It does not give specific instructions about how to change the sensor's battery, but it does contain a lot of valuable information in case you did not have it already.



    As I stated earlier, most remote motion sensors just pop open by prying them apart gently from the bottom with a screwdriver as seen in the video.



    Hope this helps a little anyway.



    Joe.

    Ok, sorry about that.

    Some problems certainly are easier solved in person.

    Good luck and take care.

Retrieve codes for 2003 road king


1. Remove right side saddlebag and side cover if so equipped. Remove protective plug from data link connector.
2. To activate the diagnostic feature, proceed as follows:
a. Create diagnostic test wire or use a female spade clip.
b. Install diagnostic test wire across Terminals 1 and 2 on the data link connector.
c. Turn Ignition/Light Key Switch to IGNITION and wait approximately 10 seconds (4 seconds lamp ON, 6 seconds lamp OFF) for check engine lamp to start flashing.
3. All trouble codes are sent out as a series of flashes. To retrieve the first digit of the trouble code simply observe the number of times the lamp flashes.
a. The lamp will then flash one or more times to indicate the first digit of the trouble code.
b. The length of time the lamp is illuminated and the length of time in which it is off are each about 0.5 second in duration.
4. The second digit follows:
a. Following the transmission of the first digit, there is a 1.2 second pause in which the lamp is off.
b. The lamp will then flash one or more times to indicate the second digit of the trouble code. Count the number of times the lamp flashes to retrieve the second digit.
5. If more than one trouble code is sent:
a. Following transmission of the second digit of the first code, there is a 3 second pause in which the lamp is off.
b. Once all codes have been sent, the data string is repeated. When you have recorded the same trouble code twice, it is an indication that the transmission has been restarted and that all trouble codes have been retrieved.
IMPORTANT NOTE ..If diagnostic test wire is installed across Pins 1 and 2 on connector in lieu of a Scanalyzer, the ECM is placed in a diagnostic test mode and the engine will start. The test wire must be removed from the data connector and the ignition switch turned OFF or the check engine lamp will continue to flash codes. A historic trouble code resides in the memory of the ECM until the code is cleared by use of the Scanalyzer or a total of 50 trips has elapsed. A "trip" consists of a start and run cycle, the run cycle lasting at least 30 seconds. After the 50 trip retention period, the trouble code is automatically erased from memory (that is, assuming no subsequent faults of the same type are detected in that period). The numbers after the 'historic' or 'current' is the speedo code number, but without the electrical diognostics manual you're peeing into the wind.

My sensor no longer works. It use to turn on the porch light when someone entered the carporch. How do I open the sensor so that I can put new batteries in it? I know that it uses AAA batteries.


Manual for this sensor is not available.
In the Zenith I have installed The motion sensor battery slot was h at the back side of the sensor, you had to remove the sensor from the wall sliding it on one side to access the battery. It mounted two AA batteries, not AAA.

How to cahnge the battery on a sentry safe


There is a small opening on the front number panel of safe. Use a small hex screwdriver or pin to insert into opening. It will open up the front panel (slide panel to right to take off) showing you 4 AA batteries. Just replace and close panel. Very simple to do. I wish the manual show me how. Instead of trying to figure it out for hours.
