OK, I just added a 6ft telephone wire onto my radar detector and hid the wires, looks very sweet! BUT....... I constantly get low volt when I turn it on, it was totally pissing me off. I figured out a way to still get it to work though by pressing the power button right when i cut it on and it'll just go to scanning or what not, but will eventually say low volt and cut off. It kept saying low volt, so my brain thought "well why dont u turn it to volt mode and see what it is?" Well it wouldnt work at the time, wouldnt cut in the slightest just kept saying low volt. my little trick above wouldnt even work. so I was forced to drive without it (I was just waiting on my girl in my car so we could go to the movies, so I couldnt do much with it then) But we get to the movies and before we go in I unplug the smartplug wire from the telephone wire and hook it directly up (it works this way, I dont know why it wont work with the telephone wire, which is my question.) But with it actually turning on right without saying low volt i turn it on to volt mode. It says arounf 13.8 which is what it is suppose to be. So I turn it off and plug it back up to the telephone wire. Well, THIS time it actually wants to turn on right, but its volt is between 11.9-12.4 So I just cut the car off and go inside to the movies. After the movies I come back out and leave, i turn it on. It cuts on properly but is still at the same voltage (11.9-12.4) I was trying to see what it said when it was at low volt but it never happened. But still this low of a volt isnt good either (i dont think). But it just stays like that till I got home, which is to where i'm at now.
But my question is why is my volts low? What can I do to fix it? Someone please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!
