Re: astra van alarm prolem

Most units are fitted behnd the glove box a couple of screws in it & under it, and the whole thing will come out.

if it has an adjustable sensor then there could be a small hole with a - + a small screw driver turns it up or down, it could well be one that needs programing via software inother words there is a set up sequence which puts the alarm in programing mode...

It depends on the manufacturer. (WHAT ALARM IS IT?)

Making unusual alerts with Ka and x bands

It could be picking up garage door openers, which are a common false alert for radar detectors. In a neighborhood, there are all sorts of sensors that give off false alarms. I usually turn mine off when driving through a neighborhood as police are less likely to be using radar (unless in a school zone).

The K band keeps going off when I install it in my car with a Viper Alarm with radar field perimeter sensor

See if you can turn off the field perirmeter sensor - these can make detectors alarm. This sensor should have been wired so that it was only on when the alarm was "Armed".

Getting false alarm from laser. Laser alarm keeps

If the laser continuously falses even with the car's ignition turned off, then your radar detector has an internal electronics problem. If your radar detector frequently or nearly continuously falses for laser while you are driving even in the middle of nowhere, then most likely the cause of the problem is either poor power and ground connections or electrical noise within your vehicle's electrical system.
