    Default Laser False on X50 when honking horn

    I put my X50 in my dad's car, and we were cruising along to see my sister in Riverside, and then we came up to a light that was green and a car was stopped in front of me, no one else on the road at all. My dad honked the horn and then LASER came up on my X50... bizzare if you ask me. Although, I have heard of some other X50 users getting LASER falses when honking their horns... it doesn't seem to do this in either my mom's or my car. My mom and dad both have a Saturn SL (blue and dark red colored respectively), and I run a black Saturn Ion. I tried honking the horn after a long drive to Temecula with my X50 equipped, and no alert. I guess there is something wrong with his electrical system? I tried putting the X50 in Voltage Mode on his car, and it usually ranges from about 12.9V to 14.5V and says Low Voltage when the car starts. Any suggestions so my father won't get annoyed with Laser Falses everytime there are idiots on the road who don't go on a green light?

    You should have the RD turned off when you start and stop the car. The electronics in the RD will not necessarily do well when subjected to the voltage variations at those points.

    I'm not really sure. I think it only happens most of the time after we drive a bit of miles (about 60 or more). Doesn't happen as much when we just go to local places around North County.
