My bmw x3 suv radio will not turn off when car is off help

Offhand I'd suggest checking your programming options on the car. Many cars these days, as a courtesy, leave accessory items such as the radio, on for a few minutes (up to 15 minutes on Dodge vehicles). This is either a convenience or a nuisance, depending on your point of view. This option should be mentioned in your vehicle's owners manual, otherwise contact the dealership and ask.

Radio is Cobra 29 LTD classic antenna light stays red when i go to calibrate it

all right,when the radio is unkeyed is the light green or red? So now I ask another question,are there two red lights or one that come on?If there is only one then don't worry about it .Its supposed to come on and turn red when you key,Its the other red light that tells you that you have a problem.If its on then check your SWR with the meter on the radio and get it down lower than 2.5:1 and then you should be set to go.

How do i adjust my VR 1-7 and how do i retune my L12, L13 and L14?

If you are asking these questions, you should not be tuning anything inside the radio.

Equipment is need to measure these to ensure proper tuning.

you need a watt meter that reads AVG and PEP. A volt meter, and an oscilloscope to align a radio, as well as an alignment guide.

If you are just trying to get more power out of the radio, don't touch anything else in the radio except for VR4. Turn it all the way to the left. Counter clockwise. This will turn the modulation to max.

Playing with anything else with out the proper metering equipment will most likely ruin the radio.

With radio turned on

1. Switch the first switch (S/RF SWR CAL) to CAL setting
2. Key mic up &
3. Turn SWR CAL knob while still keying mic until the needle is on the red CAL arrow at the far end of the meter scale. Unkey mic.
4. Switch the first switch back to SWR setting.
5. Key mic up again and record SWR reading and adjust as needed.
6. When done adjusting put switch back in the S/RF setting for normal operation.

Do not flip the switch with the mic keyed up.

Cobra cb brand new and cant get it to work

get your swr checked by a cb shop. 90% of all cb problems are a poorly or not tuned antenna.

How do you program in the frequency

There is no programming on this radio. With power and an antenna connected, turn the power on and you should see a channel number in the display. Turn the volume up about 1/4 of the way, and turn the squelch down. You should hear either transmissions or noise. If all you get is silence, the receiver section is "fried." If the unit does not power up at all (no lights/displays at all) then you most likely have a blown fuse - a simple fix.
