There no APU Fire alarm system is connected to air-conditioning system .Problem  is APU pneumatic ducting. It might be exhaust duct partial  became  rapture.

Thank u for your invaluable contribution. The fault was traced to a broken clamp on exhaust duct of the APU which allows the exhaust gas fall directly on the sensor loop around it. A new exhaust duct was installed, system tested and found OK.

Check the fire loop element for stand off clearances from all ducts and foil covers. Make sure all the "clamps" are fully insulated from the fire loop as the element can "slip" through the split in the insulation sleeve.

Good luck...

 

APU fire light illuminate with both cargo and flight station AC systems?

Have you "motored" an engine with the condition lever in ground stop so it will not start?
