Question about Blinder M20 X-Treme Radar Detector

Jammer shuts off

Hello, I recently purchased a Blinder M20 for my 95 camaro and am having a bit of a problem getting the jammer to stay on. Let me explain that in a little more detail. The power LED stays on (Green), but after about 30 seconds it beeps quickly (less then a second) and then the jammer no longer reads laser signals. It works fine for the first 30 seconds or so, but after that it won't pick up any signals. The LED remains green, but the jammers are unresposive. I've tried 3 different power sources (fuse box (horn fuse @ 25 amps), stereo lead, and finally directly to the alternator. All of these but the stereo lead put out the recommended minimum of 12.2 volts, but the problem is exactly the same. I've tried switching the ports on the receiver box and it does the same on all 4. I've tried it with and without the auto mute, same story. I use the IR from a TV remote control to test the jammers, which again work fine for the first 30 seconds or so, but the problem continues to return. I've got it hooked up with the lead running to the middle switch on the back of the power switch and the lead running from the top connection on the back of the switch to a power source. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Jammer shuts off

To my understanding,the first 30 seconds is a test mode when the blinder will react to a tv remote,after wards the light will remain green until a true laser attack.

Have a Toyota D4D and the keys were stolen, how can i start it, i have tried hotwiring but it just swings

I would recommend that you call a locksmith. They can make a new key for the ignition. The other option is that you replace the ignition switch. The benefit of using the locksmith is that the cut of the original key will be like the original and there will not be the need for a separate door key.
I hope that you have found this information to be useful, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using fixya!

My radar detecor has connection problem. Its not the cord. I purchased a new cord and same problem. When I plug the power cable into the escort It does not power up fully. As push the "clip" end...

The problem with your Escort radar is the charging port. It is slacked and need to be replaced. That is why, when you are connecting your charger to it, you have to adjust it to get the proper fitting. Once you plug in a charger into any device over a period of time, it tends to loosen grip and contacts bit by bit It can take years to arrive at the slack point.
SOLUTION: First try cleaning the contacts/charging port, if that does not solve the problem, then it means replacing the contacts/charging port is the last resort.

Baxi solo 3 70pf boiler problem

This happened to me and it was a rubber pipe inside had perished so it was detecting a loss of pressure. You can see it if you take the main cover off and also the front clipped on cover. Its at the top on the right. You need to replace it with heatproof pipe. Good luck!

An easier way is to get a gps jammer. They make nice ones for cheap. Check the import sites from china. They make a small unit that plugs into cig lighter socket, and is no bigger than your thumb.
