Radar won't stop picking up K Band
 
I just picked up my 2012 SRT8 on Tuesday and the first thing I noticed, was my Valentine Radar keeps picking up a random K-band signal even if I'm in my garage.
I put the radar back in my 2011 Overland (now my wife's Jeep) to make sure nothing was wrong with it, and of course it was okay in that one.
I'm wondering if this has something to do with all the "Collision Prevention" features on the Jeep.

Any similar experinces of thoughts.

(Direct me to a thread if this has already been discussed.)

You are going to need to disable the rear k band antenna and add a 3 second delay to the front k band.

Here's how to reprogram. http://www.valentine1.com/Lab/techreport3.asp

I reprogrammed mine and it's quiet again. I swapped my wife's V1 and the falsing came back so these are the right settings.

Just think if you don't like the annoying k band false alerts, think about how all the other drivers who have radar detectors feel around your new Jeep.

And Audi, Mercedes, BMW and any other vehicle with the newest version of blind spot detection.......

It is interesting watching people race up in the left lane then stand on the brakes when they get near my left quarter panel. :cool:

FYI, for anyone with a detector that can be programmed set the K band to a 3 second delay it will prevent you from getting falsed when you pass a vehicle with blind spot detection.

That's because neither have a real rear antenna. It's only the V1 that is sensitive enough in the rear to detect the blind spot radar.
