    Hi can Anyone with a growler tell me what five flashes on the led means?
    I've left instructions at home and can't remember what's activated it.
    Thanks
    Gavin

    On our Strikeback alarm, 5 flashes indicates Microwave (hyper frequency unit).

    Other codes are :-
    2 flashes every six seconds = cab doors
    3 flashes = bonnet
    4 flashes = side doors, rear doors & accessory loop
    5 flashes = microwave
    6 flashes = ignition alarm
    7 flashes = current drop (when installed.
    Hope that helps.

    I always knew it was a good bit of kit, but didn't realise it did all that and made the coffee too! (y):)

    Yes as the good MHFun members state, five flashes indicates that the internal sensor has detected something.

    It's correct title should be "Hyper frequency sensor" It is radio wave not Ultra sonic sensors used in car alarms which don't work well in much larger areas and are susceptible to air movement caused by blown air or air conditioning systems, neither of which are in operation in a car when the alarm is on.

    People do giggle a bit when we refer to is as a microwave as they think that it will make the tea! Its good but not that good
