I've disconnected the thing at the mo' its i think a DEP fume alarm that has a three colour light...green for ok amber for test and red for alarm.
On starting the engine it will chirp then go quiet and then start beeping.
I've chased the wire down and it goes through the deck in the console i'm guessing next to the fuel tank?
I have a hydrocarbon fume detector on my Parker Baltic rib and have to say it has only gone off twice since I have had my rib, mainly when I have been banked right over throwing the rib about, other than that it has not gone off. When I switch on the batteries it chirps a couple of times, performing a system test but is silent afterwards.
I believe Simon Hawkins on here also had a similar problem with his Ribcraft, and that drove him nuts too.
