Vertex VX4600. when the anntenna is connected and the radio is keyed it pulls the power supply low and the radio turns off. Without the antenna, the radio functions normally. Cable checks open to gro

Is your power supply large enough? It sounds more like too many amps are being drawn or the power supply has a problem. New power supplies are not as good as the "old" ones and develop some strange issues, like not enough power (amps) actually getting through. I assume heavy gauge wire. How many watts are you transmitting with?

How do you install a Maxon radio repeeter. It only has two wires that apear to be a Hot(Red) wire and a Black(ground). Should I just ground it and hook it up to a power suply?

Your correct the red wire is the positive and the black is the negative. You must also make sure to use a power supply with enough current to operate the radio. Usually a 12 volt supply that supplies about 4 to 8 amps should do the trick

Just received my new cobra 29 lx cb. When I turn on the power the radio comes on for about 2 seconds then the screen goes blank and all fuctions cease. When the power to the radio is turned off, the screen...

  • Check that power cord up by the tip. It is possible it is a little loos in the tip (that hooks into the radio) Being new it almost has to be related to the power feed.
  • Make sure the fuse you are using is good. Use a 4 amp fuse in there.
  • Make sure you installed all the shoulder washers in your antenna properly or this will cause a short too.
  • Your power supply could be at fault too. Take a multimeter and turn it to DC volts and make sure 13.8 is coming out of it. The power supply could be failing under a load. Have you tried a quick setup in the car? See if sticking the power cord pos to pos and neg to neg on the car battery keeps the radio running better. You don't need to have the antenna hooked up for this just DO NOT key the mike. Just long enough to see if the radio stays on for more than 2 seconds.
  • If you do all this testing and the radio still cuts out then you have a defective unit and it needs to be replaced with a properly running unit.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a motorola AAM25KKD9AA2AN radio. When I key the microphone the radio powers off and when I release the microophone it powers back on. If I remove the antenna, it does not do this.

Sounds like a power problem. Check your wiring and battery connections. Or if using this radio as a base station with a power supply, check your wiring and the power supply. You are likely not getting enough power to operate the radio.

By keying the mic without an antenna connected you are creating high VSWR which is hard on the radio. It reflects power back into the radio and pounds the power amplifier. The reason the radio is staying on is likely it takes less power without the antenna connected. While examining the radio, double check your antenna connections and coax.

Best regards.

Does an mp3 player put out enough power for input to KAC-624 amp?

Have you connected the rca plugs to the radio or amp directly? If you've connected it to the radio make sure that the input level controls are adjusted AND available on that model (it will say AUX, INPUT, SUBWOOFER, REAR, etc.) Connecting your mp3 player directly to the amp will not have enough juice to hear sound you need to connect it to the radio first.

Engine cut out while driving. Would turn over, no start.

If it were mine, I would check to see that there is fuel to the engine and the ignition system is working.

New KDC-135 has Power but Faceplate won't light up

you shold always twist the end of the wiring together and tape them never use connectors, remove the connectors and twist the wires driectly to each other and tape them wiht electrical tape, the connectors almost always can not deliver the proper voltage..

Did you make sure you have the yellow to a constant connect wire and the red to a turn on?if not this can cause the radio not to work......

you can test wich is wich by turning the key off and putting the yellow to the one you think it is and red to the one you think it is, if you have have it right you will hear the CD player make a click run sound...... if not you will not hear any thing.

Pioneer head unit plays in accesory mode, but not when vehicle is fully started

he tapped into starter wire instead of accessory. Remove radio and verify the switched power (red) wire is properly hooked up to an accessory wire that stays on after vehicle is started.
I believe the wire is white/black behind the radio. Check with a voltmeter to be sure.
for the wire codes to that vehicle.
