Default Trouble hardworking redline, won't function need help

I am hardwiring my redline and bought the wiring kit online, I tested that the wire I was jumping power from was a 12v, when the redline powers up, it is silent all the way through the band checks and then just displays the volume display, and it shows the volume at it's highest setting and just sits there and beeps. Then I plug in the standard outlet plug and it starts back up fine. What does it mean when it just beeps and displays the volume??? Please help me

Sounds like a weak ground---try moving your ground wire to a diff spot--make sure it's a nice metal to metal contact. Seeming it works fine on cig power 99.9%ground issue

Thank you, I'll give that a shot, look for a better ground and make sure the contact is solid.

The detector thinks you are holding the mute button either because the button on the new cord is stuck or the yellow wire in the harness is shorted to ground.

I bought a cheap-o Knockoff hardwire kit for like $10 Online and it did that to the redline I had. Exact same thing - like the volume button was being pressed and held. But the regular cord worked fine. I then bought an escort brand hardwire kit and it worked fine. You probably got an inferior cord.

Can you post a picture of the rj plug so we can see the pin outs?

Yep I will post a pic tomorrow, it was a cheap kit, like 10 bucks. Thanks all for the help and responses, I'm new to the Radar life, but it's already proves it's worth in a month of use. I don't know how I ever went with out one
