    Thanks, I got the fuse out. I'll go to the store and buy a new one. I'll let you know if this fixes it.

For what its worth a few years ago I had a similar problem. Turned out the car 12V socket I was plugging into didn't work. Quickest way to test that out is to take it to another car and try it there.

Check the power lead - if it is a cigarette lighter socket type, often you can unscrew the end and you will find a small fuse in the plug - this could be the problem. If not, then is the detector still under warranty? if not open it up and send us a couple of photos of the insides. Hope this helps :)

    Next thing to try is to open it up if it is no longer under warranty. There could be an internal fuse, or other power conditioning electronics that have failed - possibly a failed back-up battery

    See if you can open it, have a look for anything obviously burnt/unusual, take a couple of photos and post them back - we may spot something also.

    If you have access to a voltmeter, check that the voltage at the socket is well above nominal 12V - should be about 11.5v to 13.2v. If it is less than 11v with the car both running and not running, then the car battery or alternator or both are probably faulty.

    Try it in another car to check, ideally in a socket that works for another electronic gadget such as a mobile phone charger.

    :)

How do u get it to work

Which model? Simply take the unit out of the box, mount it, plug in the power cord and turn it on. That is all that you need to do. remember this unit is a RADAR detector and not a POLICE detector. The officers have to be transmitting to have the unit pick anything up.

I hard wired the xrs radar but didnt install the fuse, got it shorted out and now it wont turn on...is there a fix to replaced whatever i burned up?

check for power on the line you may have popped that fuse if fuse ok than you more than likely burnt up most of the electronics in your detector

XTR-590, powered up plugged in, 1rst day having it, drove by 2 uconn dodge chargers and 3 state police in the course of 30 seconds and didnt hear a peep. I doubt they all had radar off? is there something...

When the unit goes through its self test - make sure the display shows either RADAR or COMBO as if it just shows COMPASS, the radar section of the unit is turned off and its basically a compass unit.

It is possible that you ran across officers that didn't have their radar guns turned on.

What wire do I choose

Your 8500 X50 draws less than 1 Amp of power. The best solution for hardwiring your radar detector is to purchase one of Escort's direct wire kits and then use an Add-A-Circuit (available at almost any auto parts store) to tap the direct wire kit's power into one of the vehicle fuse box's switched power fuses. I recommend tapping into a fuse which is rated for 10A or higher since the higher amperage fuse terminals have thicker wires running back to the car battery, and this generally provides cleaner power for the radar detector.

Cobra XRS 9950 Radar Detector not powering up

At the end of the power cord for the radar detector the end screws off and there is a fuse for the radar detector itself. Check it....

If that isn't the problem post back for further help.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Continuous alert

About the only thing to try with the Escort 8500 and the x50 is to do a full reset. Hold all 3 buttons down while turning the detector on. I believe Escort will still work on it, there will just be a service charge with no warranty.
