Check the ground. Make sure its grounded well on bare metal. To see if the ground is bad, or not making good connection, disconnect the antenna and turn it on. if it does not power up, that means your ground is bad, and it was grounding only through the antenna.
Make sure not to key up with out the antenna connected.

Your SWR is probably NOT fine. You need to use an external meter if you have had work done to the radio. Especially if you have had a swing mod done to the radio. When you do this, the dead key of the radio is lower then the calibration knob on the radio can adjust for. It will always come up lower then it actually is.
Your radio might have been fine before the work was done on it because it was putting out very little power. Now you are most likely putting out 50 watts or more. Big jump from 4 watts.
When your raise the power in a radio, you will notice more when the antenna is not properly tuned.
In most cases with a stock CB, even when the antenna is not even near tuned, you will get a reading less then 1.5 anyway.
the more power you put out, the more important it is to have a good match.
But an external SWR meter, and check it. be careful if the ANT light is on.
You might also want to check your coax, connections to it, and your antenna for anything wrong.

Well,first hand ,some cobra radio,s have red some have green RX/TX lights, but are you modulating? Some green lights turn red. What is your standing Wave on the antenna,s? You need to check it and the output of the radio. To do this you need a watt or field strenth meter. Can get one at Radio Shack. Your standing Wave is ok as long as it is below a 2. That has to be done on the antenna. ..hope this helps...
