So I've had an escort 8500 for about 2 months now. Recently it has started showing "laser" whenever I accelerate hard. I have been able to replicate the problem so I know it has something to do with the acceleration. However the mystery is that it doesn't always happen. Sometimes it won't happen all day, sometimes it will happen for every acceleration including when I'm already going and just accelerate to pass someone, and some days it will be random about which accelerations it does it.

This is incredibly irritating because; 1 it makes it somewhat unreliable because i've begun to assume there actually is no laser, and 2 annoying as hell because everyone who has an escort knows the laser sound is enough to make you want to kill yourself, lol.

any ideas? would hardwiring it solve the problem?

may or may not be your issue, but i found this on my wifes car with an 8500...

Mounted it on the dash with velcro. Noticed the same intermittent LASER warnings. Found out that when warm air was coming out the defroster, thats when it would get the laser warning. Moved the mounting back a few inches, problem solved.
