Question about Passport 8500 Radar Detector
Scroll down a few posts and a guy "blokhead" posts the solution to the "laser" problem. And then another posts some pictures. I only took out the first 3 screws, opened it up, pulled the circuit board out, and then used a tiny screwdriver to seal up the gaps around the metal box around the laser sensors. I also tightened up some of the tabs that hold the box to the board. It definitely had some little gaps that had opened up over time causing RF interference. The guy says if he ever fixes it again he may use some foil tape to completely seal it, I might do the same, but it appears to have fixed the laser issue when you press the gas, and an issue with my keyless remote lock. It would laser everytime I left it on and locked/unlocked the car.
