I have a 2003 Expedition and almost every time I drive by the big 'golf ball' on Smoky Hill just past E470, it messes with my dash. Last night I was hit by the signal so hard that my car would not turn off and I had to park it to let the battery die. Does anyone else have this problem?
I don't know who to talk to or who to report this to. It is so frustrating!!!!

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I am super frustrated as I have been dealing with this for over 5 years!!

That big golf ball is an FAA tracking radar. While it's not out of the realm of possibility that RF from the radar is wreaking havoc w/ your car's electronics, you're likely in the extreme minority.

You should probably try to contact a dealer or car repair shop as your starting point.

Nope, never. We probably drive by there on average once a month and nothing has ever happened.
