The battery indicator on my BCD325P2 comes on prematurely… as soon as a half hour after I install new disposable, brand name, batteries. It will sound the telltale beep and shut the radio down. The batteries test new after I remove them from the radio. However, the radio will still work using the programming cable to supply power, with or without batteries installed. I haven’t discovered any setting I may have inadvertently set that would cause this to happen. I have ruled out temperature as a cause as this happens indoors or out, a/c or 90 degree F. Any help?
