I recently bought a used whistler pro 73. The unit looks to be like new but after a week of use I havent received any alerts. How do I test this unit to see if it is defective?

Perform a factory reset (hold the power and quiet buttons in, while hold in these buttons plug in the power cord. Unit should beep twice) and see if this corrects it. If not contact Whistler at 800-531-0004.

9500ci K band sensitivity


be aware the patrol cars change the bands to overcome the detection units on sale so that they can identify speeding drivers. Have you unit tested but if it proves ok then the changed band will be the problem. Over here they are using a combination of bands and infer red to detect speeders.

I have a whistler pro 78 radar detector and for some reason the audio is distorted. It has been mounted on the windscreen all the time (didnt get wet, nor was it hit). I assume it either has a shortage or...


Its possibly a bad speaker. If the unit is under 3 years old, send it back to whistler to get it repaired under warranty. You can contact them at www.whistlergroup.com or info@whistlergroup.com

if its over 3 years old, a good chance its just the speaker and you can order a speaker from whistler for $10 and repair it yourself.3eulcg

Just bought a 1675 from an individual, never used, still in box. In highway mode it keeps giving a random alert on ka. Doesn't seem to be related to any time or location.


Have you tried the unit in a different vehicle to see if the alerting still happens? Are you using two detectors power up at the same time in the same vehicle? If so, this will cause the units to false.

call whistler 800-531-0004 i believe you can buy the factory one from them or pick up an 8 ohm mini speaker at an electrics store this may take some splicing as the ones from electronics store usually are not exact but you can make them work , just make sure you take the old one with you it is easier to match up at the store
