I have new batteries, but the charger is steady red, but the radios won't turn on.

Steady red on the charge indicates the battery is charging. This would not be unusual, as the charge will revert to a trickle charge and have a constant red even after a complete charge cycle. For a brief time when the initial charging is done it will be green, but you'd have to be watching the charger pretty closely to catch it green. (Be careful to have the radio shut off when it is placed on the charger, and especially careful to NEVER press the PTT when it is turned on and charging.)

When you say the radio won't turn on, we are assuming you see no light on the radio. If this is the case, you might check the battery connection to the radio and be certain the battery contacts are not flattened or damaged between the radio and the battery.

You might also check your on/off/volume knob in different positions to see if the volume potentiometer has gone bad. If so, you might have intermittent function of the radio depending on the position of the knob.

Lastly, you might try a different battery on the radio to see if it will work with a different battery, maybe the new battery is not functioning correctly.

Flat rate repair is available for this style radio for around $95.

Best regards.

The ant light and the other light light up red when i key the kic

the tx/rx liight is green when your radio is recieving signals and turns red when you are sending signals. the ANT light is red when your SWR is too high (over 3)

1. turn the knob labeled swr cal all the way counter clockwise
2. set the rf swr cal switch to the CAL position
3 key up the mic and hold it while you rotate the swr cal knob until the needle reaches the swr cal postition
4. set the swr cal rf switch to the swr position
5. key up the mic while on chanel one (record the the number)
6. switch to chanel 40 key up the mic (record the number)
if the number on chanel one is lower than the number on chanel 40 then your antenna is too long.

I dont know were the adjustment nobs should be i just got this radio and dont know that much about the galaxy 959

There are little red dots on the edge of each knob. As a starting point, try these knob positions (starting from the knob on the left)..
Adjust volume as desired.
Adjust squelch all the way counterclockwise (no squelch).
Adjust mic gain so the red dot is at the 12 o'clock position.
Adjust mic gain so the red dot is at the 12 o'clock position.
Adjust light dimmer as desired.
Adjust RF Power with the red dot at the 12 o'clock position.
Ignore talkback and clarifier for now.
Now for the 5 little slide switches...
Set all of them to the middle position.
Now you should be able to operate transmit and receive.

This is a very good radio, but there are so many adjustment knobs that you can reduce its performance if you just blindly turn knobs.
After you learn how the radio sounds and works with these average settings, play with each knob, adjusting a little and see what it does for your particular antenna setup. Do some "radio checks" with other CBers and find out what your best settings are. Also read the owners manual for guidance on what each knob does...especially mic gain (too low and you won't be heard, too high and you'll be garbled) and RF Power (to little and you won't reach out very far, too much and you'll overload local listeners). This is definitely not a beginners radio. But it is a lot of fun and will enable you to learn a lot.

Cobra 29 NW LTD Classic wont calibrate and red antenna light keeps coming on

The calibrate knob only calibrates the radios SWR meter, the owners manual will show you the procedure for that. If your ANT light is coming on, it is telling you that your SWR is to high, and may cause damage to the radio from reflected power. You should purchase an in line meter as the radios internal meter may be somewhat unreliable. You need to tune the antenna to the lowest SWR possible. Typically anything under 2.0:1 is acceptable. Radio Shack sells a meter for about $50, and is pretty accurate. Antenna mounting can also cause high reflection if it is to close to other objects. Google "CB antenna tuning" or read the instruction manual for you antenna, and you should be able to figure out how to properly tune the antenna.

My instrument panel does'nt light up when I turn on my head lights and the radio light turns off and as soon as I turn off my head lights the radio light comes back on.

Hello manchie...You should have a dash light dimmer switch..remove it from the dash. There should be a 3 wire plug on the back side with a Red/Green, Green/red and black wire. Jump between the Red/Green wire and the black wire and see if the lights come on. If they do, it probably has a bad illumination controller.
Good luck and i hope this will fixya up.

02 VW GTI Radio says CHECK

This worked for me (radio in 2003 VW Golf):
Radio says "CHECK" but is otherwise unresponsive. Turning car or radio on/off doesn't help.
On the far right of the radio, there's a round TUNER button. Press it for 5 seconds. Your screen will then show some digits, but the unit is still unresponsive.
Press tuner button again for 5 seconds. Radio should now be 100% again. Let me know if this works for you.
