Ever since my first RD back in 1985 I have wired up a power line that was hot only when the ignition key was in On. And every RD I had would "remember" that it was on when the ignition was shut off and would resume operation when the engine started.

I just bought an Escort Solo S2 (refirb). It won't do that. When I shut the key off it powers down (power line connected) but when I turn the key on, it stays powered down.

I just know I will get a ticket because it doesn't come on automatically like they all have since 1985.

Does anybody know a way to change this operation? Like maybe some secret pattern of pushing the buttons.

Thanks In Advance,
