You're probably getting electro-magnetic interference that's triggering
the laser circuit internally.  I've a Uniden unit whose laser ciruit is
triggered every time I use my flip phone or turn on my Z's rear wiper,
and I had it in a Maxima once and the ignition triggered the laser
circuit continuously.

All you can do is get a better laser detector.  I also have a Valentine
and it doesn't have this problem, I bet the BEL would be fine too.
