Funny thing...when I honk the horn in my 1996 Tacoma it will false laser! I just laughed and laughed the first time it happened, gotta be something with the horn harmonics and feedback in the power circuit.
My ZR4s also reported a false Laser alert when I honked the horn of my car. I've since upgraded to the LSP, and carefully-routed the wiring further away from the horn's wiring, and I haven't had a false alert from my horn since then.

Righto. The re-routing thing wasn't an option for me, passing it under the tank cover meant it sits right along the ignition wires, no matter which side. So the shielding worked great.
