To cut down on noise i would hook it directly to the battery. make sure there is a fuse in the power cord first.

Radio shack cb radio trc-481 model no.:21-1550b. i need to know to hook up the wires to my truck


Red wire is the primary power, this can be hooked to a fuse in the fuse block that shuts off with the vehicle, such as the fan or windshield wipers, the white wire is the memory power, this should be hooked up to either the battery (not recommended as you will pick up alot of engine noise), or another fuse that has a constant flow of power...such as interior lights. Not that both red & white have an inline fuse of there own, anything over 2amps will cook the radio.
If interested in operating without the vehicle running, hook both to a fuse in the fuse panel that has a constant power flow, use the same fuse for both red & white, not going over 3amps MAX!
Black of course, is your ground.
*NOTE-any many radios, the better the ground, the less engine noise your radio will pickup, because alot will be flitered through to the ground. Best to run it to the body, for example the bolts that attach your seat to the body...put the wire between the bolt & the floor...this helps create a capacitor like ground.

I have my cb grounded and a wire ran to the postive side of my battery terminal and the antenna wire ran and my cbs channels wont come up we thought it was jus my cb so we hooked another up and it did the...


Hello,

Here is the deal, even with out antennas hooked up, you should get at least your channels on your cb showing, no of course you would have all noise and distortion with out antennas hooked up. And sense you hooked another cb up with same results it tells me, number one, it is not most likely your cb. If your channels are not even lighting up, then this tells me it is not getting power. I know you said that the cb is grounded, and there is a wire ran to the positive post of the battery. What I would do first of all make sure proper wire on cb is grounded and not reversed accidentally, but what i believe is your not getting power to the unit, if it was properly installed, there should be a inline fuse from the cb radio to the positive post the wire is connected to on the battery. I believe there is a inline fuse that is blow, or not a good connection on the post of the battery. To test this theory, take a long piece of same size wire gauge, and run direct from positive on battery to positive post on battery, of course making sure that the proper wire off the cb is grounded (must be grounded to something metal, might find different spot to ground the radio if not for sure on metal) If you get lights going on then on radio, then your problem, was not a good connection or inline fuse on positive wire that maybe you didn't see was blown. Let me know Mike

Rci6900fturbo blows fuse when keyed up. what fuse is needed.


I noticed that you refered to it as a CB
I believe you are mobile.

That is a very powerful export radio requiring a good voltage supply. If you are mobile you might want to run your positive lead direct to battery and ground to frame. I suggest an 6 gauge wire, i would treat it like a linear.

What size fuse do i need on the positive side do i need if i have it hooked to the battery. my cb is a maxon mcb-40. if u cud tell me what size inline fuse i need it would help alot thank you


Most un-modified CB radios run about 2 to 4 amps on transmit. A 5 amp fuse is sufficient for most radios. Check you owners manual for the correct size fuse to use.

Wanting to put a cobra 19 dx IV cb radio in my truck and i need to know how do i connect the powersource to the fusebox


If I were you, I'd hook the power source directly to the battery. There should be a plug like rubber thing near your brakes. Take that out and run your wire from the cb radio to the battery. This way the truck doesn't have to be turned on to talk. Just make sure that you turn the cb radio off each time you use it or you'll drain the battery.

How do i install a cb radio on a pick up truck


You will need a CB radio antenna, The CB radio and mounting hardware as well as the power wire.

Choose a place to mount the radio. Mount it. Run the power wires from the radio to the fuse box. Put red wire in with the fuse that is hooked to switched 12 volt. Ground the black wire to any metal of the vehicle.

Next find a place to mount the antenna. If you use a mag mount, the roof of the cab is a best bet. Run the wire into the vehicle, it can go through the door, just make sure its not going to get pinched.

Hook the coax from the antenna to the radio

Now you have to tune the antenna. this is important because if you don't you you will blow the transmit final transistor out in the radio.

This link will take you to an article that will explain how to tune your antenna.

You seem to have a handle on the problem .A wiring diagram will not indicate the location of the aux circuits. Any non original looking wiring should be disconnected from it's connecting point ie; tail lights to aux lights are usually a short distance from original wiring. CB radios are two core non original and easily from battery or fuse box. Don't go mad on the disconnect but take a long look at whats not the original fitment. let's know how you get on and the blowing fuses thing . Good luck

Alot of times if you can wire it into your fuse panel it will quit anytime you hook up a radio directly to your battery your asking for recieve problems because that is where all your high current items like a blower are connected ( or atleast very close ) Anyway give that a shot . GOOD LUCK Dan

Cobra 25LTD Classic internal neg. wire burnt when I hooked up.


COBRA RADIOS HAVE A DIODE THAT WILL BLOW IF HOOKED UP BACKWARDS, THIS IS A BLACK DIODE WITH A SILVER RING ON ONE END OF IT, YOU MAY HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A CB REPAIR SHOP AND HAVE IT REPLACED, HOPEFULLY YOU DID NOT USE OVER A 5 AMP FUSE
