An easier way is to get a gps jammer. They make nice ones for cheap. Check the import sites from china. They make a small unit that plugs into cig lighter socket, and is no bigger than your thumb.

I have a dodge pickup 5.7 liter engine and I put a escort 8500 in it and whenever I accelerate it goes off

"Goes off" as in shuts off or provides an audible / visual radar alert?

Are you connected to the cigar lighter / battery; or a wire you believe to be 13.8VDC? Check the voltage of the wire you are using to power the 8500 with a VOLTMETER. You may be connecting the data bus wire in the vehicle instead of a 13.8VDC source. Move the wire to a 13.8VDC source.

Need a device to counter gps tracker

If you know where the tracking device is, you can either remove the device or wrap it in several layers of heavy foil.
Removing the tracker would be better, as a wrap may not block it.. It is likely under the vehicle, has a magnetic base, and is self contained. If it is connected to the vehicle's GPS system ( I.E. a company vehicle) then you cannot disable or disconnect it without the tracking entity knowing. There is a legal grey area involving tracking of this nature, and most States require a court order authorizing the installation on private vehicles.
Check with your local Police department for the legalities of installing and /or disabling such a device.

Having problems to separate the front axle from the tranny on dodge grand caravan se 2000

The axle shaft that goes into the transmission has a groove near its end with a circlip-a loose ring-in the groove. The circlip also sits in a groove inside the case. This is to keep the axle from trying to slip out the transaxle.
To get the axle out easily, shops use a fork tool around the inner CV housing, on a slide hammer-pops them out easy. A similar method is to use a pry bar or large screwdriver. Slip it in between the CV housing and the transaxle case-and give it a sharp push or shove- it will usually pop the axle out of the groove. Then the axle comes right out. Only thing you have to be careful of is not let the pry bar rest on the axle seal around the shaft. That may destroy the seal. Also be careful not to let the pry bar break the tranny case. I've done this on many cars without damage, but you could always rent the slide hammer, probably the forked tool also.
Some transaxles have a stub shaft out of the transmission, and the axle's inner CV housing has a female end that slides over the stub shaft. This set up has a roll pin through the CV housing and the stub shaft, securing axle to stub shaft. On this kind you drive out the roll pin with a punch. I'm pretty sure your caravan has the axle going into the trans. case, with the circlip on the shaft. They just get popped out. When installing, you can hear the circlip snap when it fits into the groove inside the case.
Hope this is clear enough for you to understand, kinda rushed right now. Good luckl.

Cobra xrs 9955

The simplest advice is to check the power connections. If connected to the cigar lighter / power outlet of the car, remove & reinsert the plug into the outlet.
Still no luck?
Try powering up the detector in another vehicle's cigar lighter / power jack. If it works - try again in your car. The problem is not with the detector, but rather with the installation in your car.
If wired directly to an accessory terminal or other place in the car, check the connection(s) and cable for damage.
If you can't try it in another car, try plugging another device into the outlet to see if it works or check and replace any blown fuse for the outlet. You should consult your car's owner's manual for the fuse box location - and the location and amp rating of the fuse for the outlet.
Check the power cord. Make sure the cord is fully inserted into the detector - not hanging in the jack. The opposite end - that goes into the cigar lighter / power outlet *may* have a built in fuse in the tip. You should check to see if the center tip of the plug unscrews to provide access to the fuse. If it does, replace any blown fuse with the same type and amp rating and try again.
If you were unable to check in another car and you are still unable to power up the detector, there may be an internal problem with detector itself. In this case, contact the manufacturer for additional help.

Take apart 955 beltronics

There are 2 screws you need to remove. The first one is in the corner of the base (flip it over and you will see it). The second screw is under the Beltronics sticker on the base, right below the first hyphen in their USA phone number. If you rub your fingernail around that location, you should feel the depression. I didn't remove the sticker, I just stuck my screwdriver over the sticker and unscrewed it through the sticker. Hope this helps.

Whats the vg2

VG-2 is a device the police use to tell if you have a radar detector turned on. THese are used in states where detectors are ilegal, such as VA and Washington DC. If you are not traveling in these states or operating a commercial vehicle, then there is no worries. If you need more information on VG-2 please visit and check on the radar FAQ page.

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.

Tracking device ?

I do not know your level of experience, but here are a couple of types you could make.....
A lojack-type beacon, with a receiver that beeps louder as it nears the beacon.
A unit that calculates its position by either cell tower triangulation or by GPS satellite. The only issue with this unit is that you need a way to access the information it stores. Some units store the information so it can be accessed later, and some units send the information over the cellular network to the internet.
if you plan on installing this device in a vehicle, the best place to mount the gps antenna would be under the dashboard below the front windshield. GPS antennas can only see through plastic and glass... if there is any metal above it, you will see no satellites. The unit must be grounded to the chassis of the automobile, and it must be connected to a direct power source. To reduce strain on the car battery, this unit should have a standby mode while the car is off... this will necessitate a 3rd connection to the vehicle, which would be the ignition lead. This lead only shows power when the vehicle is started, so it is a good way to tell the unit to wake up from standby. Another way to wake the unit up from standby would be to send it a "text message" or sms, The text message would contain a command to wake up (the standby current could be exactly that of a cell phone), and the unit can send its latitude and longitude via text message. 
That's pretty much it.

DIY Speaker replacement Bel 995

Sometimes they hide the screws, usually under stickers/labels on the unit, remove all labels and if still no screws It's probably just a tight fit, unsnap by prying with flathead screwdriver. Good Luck

Whistler de-1765

I once owned a PNI Radar detector with a compass feature. Mine had to be calibrated by actually driving in clockwise and then counter-clockwise circled (three times each if I recall correctly. Check your manual for a similiar procedure. If you can find one, pick up a Uniden GPSRD unit. These work off the Defense Department's satellites and never need any calibration. They also track your speed from space and displays it on the detector. You can also mark locations,and get latitude/longitude information whenever you need it as well as directions to anywhere in the US. VERY COOL DEVICE! So cool, I bought one for each vehicle... however one was recently stolen.:( Hope this information helps you out.
