The road your driving on may have the drive by wireless system in the road and your detctor picks up it's driving signal. the other answer is can you take it anywher that it's not going off all the time ( a different road) if it's going off no matter where you take it it's malfunctioning and if it's still under wrrentee take it back. seems like you paidalotof money for it but it too cheap to fix.

Laser alert constantly goes off


Laser is very sensitive to false alarms often set off when driving by an airport, or military base. Set your laser on City Mode and pay attention exactly where it goes off. Mine goes off constantly in the same place which is a air force base in Tucson, AZ. Unless you drive like crazy shut it off in the city although the cops like to use a hand held one in school zones. In 6 years of driving in Arizona I have had one real laser alert, and other than false alerts, real ones are far and few in between. Check when and where the unit alerts and use different sensitivity settings. One more thing, if your laser warning goes off you already have the ticket since the cops use them at close range unlike the radar bands. Hope this helps.

I have a Peugeot 307 HDI. The hazard warning lights flash intermittently. Some days I drive about 60 miles and no flashing. Other days they can flash on anything up to 10 times during a similar journey....


I think the problem is in the switch, I would start with that, try and find a used one in a salvage yard to save money if the guess is incorrect.

I have everything on as far as I can tell and still isnt picking up radars. When I drive past a hospital or automatic door it will go off with out a cop in site so I assume it is the door interfering. but...


First try a factory reset - hold in the power button and the quiet button, while holding in these buttons plug in the power cord, THe unit will beep twice and show FACTORY RESET on the screen, then give it a test.

Radar dont always work and the speaker is going out


the stock speaker is only 0.5 watt. Replaced with a .75 watt. Mine and two friends both had blown speakers by they middle of the second year of use. The only other real problem was too many false alarms in town, but better safe than sorry, bang for the buck is great-saved me more than I care to think about in tickets and residual costs. Now, it's loosing it's sensitivity, still goes off for false alarms but I got a ticket and it didn't go off (not laser) and can drive by the posted speed-readout radar things they park-mount on utility pole for "us" and it wont even go off. The other day it did, one out of 20 times (by my house) it was Ka! Luckily, the local cops use KU in their crusers so it will work until I get a new one. Too bad it's dying, planned obsolecence is only a year on these I would GUESS.
Thanks

NOT PICKING UP SIGNALS


Radars are like just about anything else you buy these days, you get what you pay for. If you want a cheap but most reliable for the price I would suggest the Whistler XTR-695 *est. price 150 bucks. Although many detectors are prone to being detected by radar detectors (used by law enforcement) this one is a little more likely. So if your state has a ban on radars I wouldnt buy. As far as distance in signal pick up the Valentine One I would go with *est.price400 bucks.

How do cops not get detected by the radar?


Radar detectors usually look for a specific type of signal. Most likely, while the cop is driving around he may not have his radar on, so the detector will not be able to isolate and pinpoint the signal that is needed to activate the alarm to notify you.

This sounds like a ignition module problem or maybe the crank sensor.

I have a cobra radar dector esd 737 and i sdoesnt pick up cops tell they are like not even a half a mile ahead of you and tips or ideas how to get it to work better


Detecting of radar or lidar emissions depends on mounting of detector.In My experience it is best to mount it just above windscreen wipers.You must check if your detector is visible from license plate level. This is important for laser detection. For other measuring devices it's only important to be visible.Higher mounting facing downwards will reduce false X and K/Ka signals.It will reduce detecing of true as well, so it is all up to you.You must know that laser detecting only covers your car.It d'ont matter if a cop is 300m or 1800m away.X band has a large emission, and it is easily detected.K/Ka band is a pulse emitting and has a lot narrow detecting point.It is effective at max 800m.In ether case speed can be reduced 20-30 km/h in city, and 30-50 km/h on highway.
