Does the unit work in another vehicle? If not, first thing to check is the fuse in the power cord. The adapter (part that plugs into the lighter socket) has a replaceable 2 amp 3 AG fuse inside it. The end of the adapter, which has the silver tip, unscrews to gain access to the fuse. CAREFUL: Unscrew slowly! The tip contains a spring which may fly out when disassembling. With use, screw cap on plug may loosen. Retighten occasionally.

I plug my cord into the cigarette lighter. It will flash for a second then in is off. It will not power on the radar. I opened the plug but I did not see a fuse. Any help?


Have you tried unit in another cars plug-in? There should be a fuse between the silver tip of the plug and the wires connected to it. I would determine if the plug in is bad then the plug itself. If plug in is dirty plug is not making good connection to power unit. Plug in is also protected by a fuse in your cars fuse box.

I plug my radar in and as soon as i do it turns on for a breif second then shuts off. the cord is cut and the wires are wired into the car can this have anything to do with it?


Make sure that your ground and your 12 volt positive connections are secure. Did you wire the 12 volts to the fuse blox or to a wire under the dash? If you connected it to a wire under the dash, that wire may not have 12 volts or it may have 12 volts but not enough current to operate the detector.

I lost my cord and would like to make a basic power cord can u send me a diagram that shows the color code on the end that looks like phone wire i have material but i dont know where which wire goes...


on a 4 wired RJ11 or Rj12 Phone plug, it's the middle 2 wires. green and red are your positive and neg. Do a quick touch test to confirm which is pos and neg. only works one way. after confirmed. solder the wires and wrap insulation tape around each and then a couple times over both for strength. the phone wire is prone to breakage.

I put in a new battery thinking that might be the problem, after installing new one, it did not work, while fiddling with it the dot came on for a second then off and nothing I did could get it back on,...


take out the battery or batteries.
turn the scope on to full power.
place the battery or batteries in the scope.
just start the battery compartment cover onto the threads.
watch through scope as you slowly tighten cover.
If the dot lights up stop turning cover or experiment with continuing to thread on cover.

What wire do I choose


Your 8500 X50 draws less than 1 Amp of power. The best solution for hardwiring your radar detector is to purchase one of Escort's direct wire kits and then use an Add-A-Circuit (available at almost any auto parts store) to tap the direct wire kit's power into one of the vehicle fuse box's switched power fuses. I recommend tapping into a fuse which is rated for 10A or higher since the higher amperage fuse terminals have thicker wires running back to the car battery, and this generally provides cleaner power for the radar detector.

Cobra XRS 9950 Radar Detector not powering up


At the end of the power cord for the radar detector the end screws off and there is a fuse for the radar detector itself. Check it....

If that isn't the problem post back for further help.

Problem to turn on my RX65


Obviously you have pressed the power button on your RX65 in order to try to power it up since you mention that the green light on the SmartCord comes on. Here is one possible solution, which resolves any stored user settings which might have become corrupted due to power fluctuations:

First, press the power button so that the radar detector is turned off (green light is off). Then hold down the two buttons used for programming and, while holding these programming buttons down, press the power button. Release all three buttons once you see "RESET" displayed on the RX65's display. Your RX65 has now restored all factory default settings from a separate area of programmed memory, and this (hopefully) will restore your RX65 to proper operation.
