    i do have the same problem. i also know for sure that it is not the power cord, it is the connection inside the detector it looks like the weight of the cord with time broke the inner peace.

Email Whistler at for info on that model. Do you think its the power cord or the jack in the unit itself?

My XTR-690SE will no longer power on. I have replaced the fuse so that's not the issue and have also tried 4 different vehicles with no luck. Any suggestions or warranties for this product??

Press IN on the power/volume button. Its possible that the Vehicle battery saver feature kicked in and turned off the unit. THis status remains in the unit's memory so plugging/unplugging the power cord does not correct it. You need to press IN on the power/volume button to turn it on.

I have an Whistler XTR radar detector, I cannot get power to the unit from the power outlet on a BMW 528 I just bought, the unit worked on my Lexus. Do I need a special cord?

No special cord is required. Does the lighter socket in the BMW power other 12 volt devices? If so, then check the fuse in the radar detectors power cord plug. If not, then check the BMW's lighter socket fuse to make sure that is working properly.

Whistler 1730 keeps blowing fuses. no other problems with cigarette lighter plug

Is the lighter socket fuse blowing or the fuse in the unit's power cord? Have you tried another power cord from a Friends radar detector? If it doesn't blow that power cord's fuse, then your power cord is bad. If it does blow the fuse in the other power cord, there could be something wrong with the unit. Contact Whistler at

I have a whistler XTR 550 that no longer makes a sound. i tried changing the settings to no avail.

Is the volume turned all the way up? (Sorry had to ask). If so and the unit does not make a sound during the self test then the speaker may be bad. If you had it less than a year then it should be covered under warranty. For more info contact whistler at or 800-531-0004

Do batteries have to be replaced if so,and when. On whistler 1675

Model 1675 is not a battery powered unit so there is nothing to replace. What is the unit doing that made you think that batteries need replacing?

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.

My whistler 220 radar detector just quit working after working with no problems for about 9 months. Anything I could do to try and fix it?

Check the fuse in the unit's power cord. It is in the plug section of the cord. Unscrewn the tip of the plug to gain access to the fuse. It will be a 2 Amp glass style fuse.
