The problem is a defective micro switch underneath the City button. Contact Escort about setting up a RMA to get your X50 fixed.

HOW DO I TURN ON THE AUTO MUTE ON A COBRA ESD 8285


When changing the Settings on your detector, please keep in mind: Each time the unit is turned On the factory settings of Highway and Auto Mute-On will be set. They can be changed while the unit is in use as described in the following sections.
Assistance Muting An Alert
Your detector allows you to quickly turn Off an audio Alert by momentarily pressing the Mute button. If you press the Mute button a second time during the Alert, the audio Alert will be turned back On.
Auto Mute Mode Auto Mute will automatically reduce the audio volume of all alerts after four (4) seconds for as long as the signal is detected. The factory setting for Auto Mute is On.
Highway/City Mode Setting your detector to City mode delays all X band audio alerts at lower signal strength levels. (A single beep will sound when the signal is first Notice detected.) This will reduce false alerts while you are driving in, or near, urban areas where there are many sources for conflicting X band signals such as microwave towers and automatic door openers. To change settings, follow the procedure listed below, which indicates what you will see and hear as you complete each step. The factory setting is Highway mode.
Highway Mode City Mode
Mute Button Press and release
To Turn Auto Mute Off X Ka L S
City Button Press and release
Press and release the Mute button while no alert is occurring.

My dodge ram 1500 4.7 quad cab gets terrible gas milage. my 03 got at least 16 in the city and 20 on hwy a 4.7 . this 04 wants to get 12-14 city and 17 on hwy. oh it has 20inch tires could that be a major...


If 20" tires weren't factory, your speedometer and odometer could be off by as much as 20%. Find a stretch of highway and watch odometer between two mile markers and check if it's accurate. Also depending on options, load, quality of fuel and regular maintenance have a large bearing on MPGs also make sure tire pressures are up.

Make sure tire pressures are up (specs listed on drivers door label), consider synthetic oil, diff fluid add a good fuel system cleaner occasionally and avoid cheap gas.

How many miles do u get for a full tank of gas on a v8


It just depends on your tank size. You probably get about 15 -18 miles per gallon. 13 gallon tank would be around 200 miles. 15 gallon tank around 232 miles.
