Something to note, there was a car in the OP video with HIDs or cheap LEDs of some sort. Kind of bluish light throw. As soon as he passes, the alert dies.

Yes as per the default, maximum Poliscan protection.
Post automatically merged:

No visible signs of any rock damage or seams leaking.
I may appy a coat of polyurethane glue over the seams on the sensors where front plate meets the housing, in case HP car washes and Canadian salty roads force a leak.
No other falses since, police station drive by does nothing.
you might want to pull the lenses off and re seal them even if they look great from the outside due to the fact the silicone used is rubish

i use to get poliscan falses also and a few types of head lights or direct sunlight would trigger ..i found the moisture lies in the bottom of the sensor but once it warms up if fogs up inside hense direct sunlight or head lights use to trigger the allert

here is a picture of mine i repaired it some time last year and works great

i think your right as my self use to get falses it would only trigger on certain types of lighting or ocassiannly in direct sunlight . it eventually got worse and worse untill i found out i had water in a head

I was wondering if certain led headlights were causing it.
My system has less than 4000km on it . Never gets driven in the rain or salted roads.
I take care not to directly spray water at the heads.
I will keep an eye out for more false alerts.

Did you get a Poliscan alert?
Never mind, Surrey right?

I got a poliscan false alert tonight just two days after reading this thread :confused:. Sensors are 10 months old. Never done an auto car wash, always keep direct water away from them.

Poliscan poses random issues w our ALPs, st least for me anyways. I just live w it like a random BSM Alert.

Once my sensor was bad, Once it was Sunlight,
And Once it was someones Non OEM headlights. So thats that. I wont disable it as ONE DAY in the future i will encounter it ... and will be protected. 😏😏😎😎
