Car stered radio knobs

I am having trouble putting new knobs into my car radio because the old ones broke off. I have tried going into car shops for tips but no one seems to know and the radio itself is about 10 years old, a ford-phillips one and could you please show me how to do this

Trying to find someone to fix the night watch feature on my cobra 29 ,the local cb shop won't touch it,and I really don't want to do it myself looks like it could easily be broke. Any help would be...

its time consuming and more costly to fix unless you're doing it for yourselfyou need a multimeter and a schematic for the elec.out put of the components that run the N/W ground the meter and have at it to all the lights on the dials then go to the main IC and check may be as easy as a bulb in each dial or having to replace each dial with a new one. thats why he wouldn't touch the radio.

I have 29ltd love the radio i'm over the road truck. I reasonnly replace my old steel whip center load antenna put 4' k40 top load one.ran new coax 18' grey. I get the red ( ant) light comes on...

Check SWR with a meter, if its 1.1 to 1.5 then its fine no matter what the light says. The light can be adjusted inside to not light up until its very high(Its adjustable with a Variable knob inside) Get a Cb shop to check it out. I'd go for LIL Wilson 500 or 1000 antennas, I hear they are superb.

Center Knob broke off (menu/channel selector). Is this knob replacable?

I'm not sure if it is. Usually it has a small contact inside it. If you culd work a knob back in it to get temporary contact to change it. Maybe it would be costly to take it to the shop to get one soldered in. Radio techs make $18-30 dollars an hour. They will fix it for you but will cost you.

I have a refurbished unit I purchased a couple of months ago and it works great but I put it back in my truck and noticed that when I tightened the knobs and will go off than if I back it off it comes on?...

yes common problem with the larger export chassis. the voltage regulator comes un-soldered from the board. re-solder and it will fix the problem. or have a cb shop do it... THEY SHOULDN'T CHARGER MORE THAN $5 for that..!!!!!

also do not use any other knobs/screws longer than what came factory with it. they will hit stuff inside and can short out components. They should be less than 1/4" long..

When i plug my 29 plug in, into the cb it auotmatically blows the fuse whether the cb is on or off. do you have any suggestions as to what might be causing this to happen

Yes I know the problem!! At one point the radio was pluged in backwards the positive prong touched the negative and vise versa and caused the Reverse Polairty Diode to pop inside the radio!! The only wat to fix this is ti have the radio taken to a Radio Tech and have the old bad part removed and a new good part put in!! The price of this fix varies from Tech. to Tech. depending on the C.B. shop!! e are a full line C.B. shop and we also do repairs. A repair like this some times will go around an average of 35.00. We would charge around 15.00 to fix it plus S+H if any one came to us for this problem!! oplease feel free to E-mail us with any other questions that you may have at" We hope this helps

I have an old 23 channel cobra 29. it lights up but does nothing

It is not a dirt issue, the final transmitter is bad. This is caused normaly from a bad antenna or wire going to the antenna. These can be replaced. There is one big on near the back of the radio, 3 prong black transistor connected to a piece of metal (heat sink), unsolder the old one and obtain an exact replacement. (perhaps radio shack or repair shop), solder the new one in. This will sometimes be screwed to the heatsink on the very back of the board connected to the rear of the radio.

Before reconnecting the radio have the antenna checked for damage.

My cobra 19 dx

Some times knobs go bad. I have a funky knob on one of my radio's. When ever you wiggle the knob it just makes awful noise.

If this is a similar problem, you can try to clean the knob with electrical contact cleaner.

If that doesn't work you my have to replace the knob.

As for the switching to 19, it could be a byproduct of a short in the knob.
