Re: Car Cassette player noise

Try installing a inline noise filter in the hot wire running to your tape player, you can get one at radio shack.

I have a 1990 cobra 148 GTL with 5 pin side-mounted mic. I recently bought a Barjan 5 pin noise canceling mic. Is the mic compatible with my cb, or do I need to change the wiring? Larry

The wiring is not likely to be the same.

The information on the radio is here:

You will likely need to open up the mic to identify what your wires connect to to determine the correct oreintation. it is possible too you may find one of the models listed was used by Barjan and is nothing more than a rebranded microphone.

I have a 1991 honda accord w/factory radio which is locked do to the anti theft device. I can't find the code or serial # on this it is a am/fm cassette combo please help

First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc) 

To see if your code is available here for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .



note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number 

If not then try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive

1991 Ford 350 truck, in dash cassette player high pitch noise

Hi rayc

sounds like the motor that pulls the tape mechanism is probably about to give problems and is getting electronically noisy. The cb may need to hooked up some where else to power so you get away from dirty power as well as maybe move the cb farther away from the tape player. hope this helps.

CB radios use a frequency range and technology that is prone to noises both atmospheric, and man made. The height and gain of your new base antenna may produce more static than you may have noticed before. The question is 1) is the antenna close to any power lines to your home, 2) do you notice any increase or decrease of received signals compared to your mobile, 3) is the static steady or does it come and go.

Dab car radio problems no line in

Two methods come to mind. If your car stereo has a cassette, you can purchase a cassette adapter for inputting music. If no cassette, your only other option is an FM transmitter, like those sold for Ipods. Your local audio shop will have both.

Fm radio/speakers

check that there are speakers! stupid as it sounds, sometimes there are just covers with holes behind...

If there are speakers trace the wiring through to the source make sure it has been conected both ends...

Or check the balance & fader on the set.
