Question about Vector 955 Radar Detector

1 Answer

Different respose in two different vehicles

Hi,

I purchased a Bel V955 and so far, I'm loving this product. It has way better detection capabilities than my old Cobra I had. The issue I'm having is with the behavior of this detector. I have been using it in my 2002 Toyota Camry for about two weeks with new issues. This weekend, I moved it to my 2004 Sierra pick up truck and as soon as it came on, the X band detection alarm started going off. This wa before I drove off the driveway. I thought it was a fluke, so I just kept going, but the thiing continued going off throughout the whole neighborhood. It got so bad that I turned it off. I wasn't sure was was happening. I turned it on again, and it was "acting" normal until suddenly, the X Band indicator started going off again. It continued to go on and off throughout my trip and it got really annoying. I went back home and put it back on the Camry and went out and drove the same route as with the truck and the detector was silent (as it should have been). Do you have any explanation as to what would cause this detector to go off like that in my pock up truck?

Thanks

Does the pickup have an aftermarket alarm system installed (not fasctory)? If so the alarms perimeter sensor is not wired properly and is on all the time (not when the alarm is armed).

When purchasing vacuum packaging machine, due to there are too much alternative models, people always become confused that how to choose a suitable vacuum packing equipment? Following analysis is conductive to your choice.

How do u convert from kerosene to diesel


there may be possible ways out there to do the conversion but it may put you and your loved ones in jeopardy. kerosene and diesel fuel have different thermal characteristic during the burning process so the heater designed to run on kerosene may not be capable of handling the burning characteristics of diesel fuel.This may lead to unwanted fire incidents and loss of lives. Best is to purchase heater made for diesel fuel.

What is the Touch ID feature in the Apple iPhone 5S for?


The Touch ID feature in the Apple iPhone 5S detects the iPhone owner's fingerprint and uses it kind of as a password, unlocking the phone and allowing purchases.
The more the feature is used the better the phone detects the fingerprint. The system can detect the fingerprint from different angles and rotations.

Need new spearker


This model has been out of production for quite some time. You could try contacting Uniden to see if, by chance, they still have some replacement speakers for this older RD model. In any event, you would be well served to purchase a modern radar detector which provides far better performance. Personally, I recommend products produced by the following manufacturers:

Bel
Escort
Whistler (their higher end products -- XTR-690 model or higher. Their Pro78 or newer Pro78SE is one of my favorites.)

NEED INSTRUCTION/OWNER MANUAL


Uniden has been out of the radar detector business for some time now. I would strongly suggest getting a different radar detector instead of using this older model since newer radar detector models generally have far better performance -- especially for detecting Ka band radar.

Anyway, Uniden's web site does not list an instruction manual for this particular radar detector model. Yet, take a look at the instruction manual for the most similarly numbered product model shown in the following link:

Uniden Owners Manuals -- Radar Detectors

One of the instruction manuals in the above link should be similar enough to your radar detector so that you can figure out everything regarding your specific Uniden RD model.

Beltronics V955 Chirps on all bands for 10 minutes when cold


This is most likely caused by a poor connection between the antenna ridge and the local oscillator board. Another possibility is an uncontrolled LO chamber harmonic due to the cold temperatures. Regardless of the cause, your V955 is under warranty and Bel will fix it for free -- as long as you include a photocopy of your sales receipt. Go to Bel's web site (www.beltronics.com), and either call their 800 number or do the online chat in order to get a RMA number.
