SOURCE: Batteries drains quickly

I had something similar, it kept saying "battery low" after putting in new batteries. Try the Clear method; Take out one battery, hold the Clear button, while holding it insert the battery again and press on, and release. Now press clear again, turn it off and turn it back on again. If that doesn't help... well it must be something else... sorry :S

SOURCE: Occasional Battery Drain

The battery was not making a good connection would be my best guess, clean them both again to make sure.

SOURCE: Brake and Parking lights won't turn off, even in "OFF" position - Drains battery

Get under the dash ad look at your brake pedal lever. You will see a stop light switch that screww into a bracket with a 'button' sticking out of it. if pulling up on the brake pedal (even slightly) solves your problem, then the switch needs adjusting closer to the brake lever. If adjusting does not stop problem then replacement of brake light switch may be required.

SOURCE: does not turn off and drains the battery

Check your remote wire, AKA "REM".

If you other amplifier turns off properly when the stereo turns off. Try to find where that amp's REMote wire goes. (It will be a verry thin cable (compared to your 12v rail for power).

If all else fails, you can always connect your REMote wire to a 12v source (ANY 12v source that turns off with the vehicle) Such as a cigarette lighter socket, or any other 12v source that turns on and off with the car.

Remove the battery for a hour. Put the battery back in. Press down at the same time and hold the #2 and #9 key when you switch it on - that will do a factory reset on almost all Uniden scanners. Then release, push manual, program, enter frequency of the local weather station and you should hear it.

Battery drains on start up - only on the 1st start of the day after that its sweet - but I need to jumpstart it on the 1st start of the day even if battery has good charge

What you are discribing is a battery with a dead cell that is worn out. Have Autozone test it and see if I am right. The testing is free.

Have a bc2500xlt that battery pack is gone. were do i buy one?


The battery pack (BP2500) and power supply/charger (AD70U) for your scanner have both been discontinued by Uniden, but I did locate a battery pack on eBay. You can check it out here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/BP2500-Battery-Pack-Uniden-BC2500XLT-BC3000XLT-Scanner-/180531979744?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a088b65e0

Considering the fact that your scanner is about 15 years old, and the price of the battery pack is $56.99, you would probably be better off donating the scanner to a museum and buying a new one.

My apologies for being the bearer of bad news.

I have a uniden bear cat scanner


That scanner dates back to 1987, so chances are that the battery pack is well beyond charging. I found a new battery pack here:
http://cgi.ebay.com/WALKIE-TALKIE-BATTERY-UNIDEN-RADIO-BC100XLT-BC200XLT-/310272646372?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item483db0dce4
but it will set you back more than $90. Another option is to open/dismantle the battery back and use a battery insert. You can purchase one for $12.95 here: http://www.batterybarn.com/jbbt049.htm
The original battery is rated at 7.2VDC, but the charging circuit is set up for 12VDC at 500mA, so stay with your 12 volt charger.

Have you checked the automatic tensioner? It sounds like your belt may be slipping, causing the alternator to not charge the battery as quickly as it needs to, which puts a lot of strain on a battery.

I would have the automatic tensioner checked and replaced, and install a new belt.
