2 questions:

1. i have the aem uego wideband that i just installed. i noticed that when i'm at idle, most of the time, or when i'm cruising and throw it into neutral the gauge will read "---"... does everyone's do that?

2. does anyone, jabbit maybe, have their owner's manual to an escort 8500 radar detector? i just drove from mass to NJ(7.5 hour trip) and the detector only went off for like 2 hours (in mass and conn. only) then going all the way thru NY and NJ it didn't go off once. i know something is messed but i passed like 15 cops and not once did it go off. i was thinking maybe gdflys(who i bought it off used) had it set to ignore certain bands... maybe someone with the manual can help me find out if it's detecting all bands.

thanks in advance for the help

The Aem reads --- when its out of range. Meaning it went richer or leaner then the unit reads. About the passport, I have one and I will look for the book for you Nate.

well, when it's idling, i can tap the gas and see the afr's go down to like 12 or 13 then slowly rise up and up and up and up and then "---" which that's what i figured it was out of range. i have a huge exhaust leak at the o2 housing to the downpipe(1 bolt broke off when changing my exhaust so it's leaking badddddd). i figured my afr's that are displayed must be off but when i'm WOT my afr's are in the high 10's which seemed right so i'm confused.

yeah let me know about the passport manual. i know josh just picked one up but i need to get this fixed ASAP cuz i'm driving back to mass tomorrow and would rather not get another 108+mph ticket. thanks

nate dogg - hold down both buttons on the top for a few seconds, it will beep. You enter the menu that way, then use one button to cycle through the options, and the other to change them. You should see one w/ bands that you can adjust. I was told by Matt that if laser/pop3 is on, it lessens the effectiveness of other bands. So turn them all on, except for pop3.

This one should work better than the last one. We should've guessed something was off w/ the settings after our 130+mph flyby the other day.

thanks for the help. i might get it dyno'd after s3r and check my AFR's compared to the AEM UEGO.

josh-i still can't believe that man, we should have definitely figured something was up. i'm gonna mess with it today. if for some reason all of them are on now i'll have to go for a ride behind you next weekend and find some cops-see if it'll go off. that really bugged me that i was going by them over and over and over with nothing going off.

dude, on the way down we missed a bad bad accident by probably 10 seconds. everyone just slammed on the brakes. a small hatchback was upside down on top of another car with about 10 other cars all over the road and a big 18 wheeler jack-knifed. there was glass and debris everywhere- i'm just glad we made it safe.
