Microphone not working

I think it is safe to say 90% of radio problems are microphone. You get a cheap one when you by just about any radio. I believe you are seeing the meter move but not getting audio from your talkback. No matter remove the mic jack plug from radio. For you particular radio looking at the end of the jack notice the small raised numbers. These female connectors no matter the mic type wired for this radio model has the following wires connected or in your case disconnected. 1-(Ground) 2- (Audio) 3-(Transmit) and 4- (Receive).
A RK56 mic would be my suggestion Astatic 636L the second choice a little cheaper but audio it not a crisp.
Don't waste your money a repairing the mic or buying a diesel or road pro or even a cdl mic like a cdl 56 or that Skythumper they are RoadKing 56 wannabees. Sorry about the rant my point is RK56 is Quality.
