Motorloa has made thirteen models for CB use: CB555,CC975AX,CF925AX,CM540,CR520/21,CT950AX,Motcat40,T4000A,T4005A,T4009A(CB-1135),T4010A,T4020A,T4025A(CB-1136). If you have one of these models, then it is a cb. The model number might not be on the front of the radio, Look on the back of the radio, the model number should be on a plate or sticker. Check the mic. connections at the plug, make sure none of the wires are broken or shorted. Try a different mic. to see if the recieve works, some radios need the mic plugged in to recieve. Check the antenna wire, if it goes inside the vehicle through a door opening, then make sure it is not crushed or broken. Check the wire at the connector that goes onto the radio, make sure it is not broken or loose. Try connecting an external speaker to see if the recieve works. If none of these suggestions help, then you may have to take the radio to a tech and have it diagnosed. Good Luck.

Problem no squelch noise or speaker like its muted, but can hear weather ok shows receiving and ant ok

Since the radio cannot transmit on Weather bands, there is no need for the radio to detect if it is transmitting when receiving weather.
In CB mode (on CB channels) the radio will mute when transmitting. So... a guess is that it is muting, or transmitting all the time in CB mode. Check for a mic problem by removing the Mic from the radio ... if it receives CB with no mic connected, then there is an issue with the mic. Otherwise, unless the unit is in PA mode (public address mode) it is likely something internal and beyond the scope of this service.

I have a 148 gtl.. when you tx, there is a loud high pitched tone at the receiving end(receiving radio)...and it is garbled...tried switching radios and when I tx the 148, the other radio had the same high...

how far away are they? It sounds to me like they are in the same room???

If so, you are getting feed back. CB's are not meant to be that close. As well, the also would raise another issue. Are their antenna's hooked up?

CB radio's need a CB antenna or you can damage the radios. The radio energy will not leave the radio and burn up the transmit section of the radio.

the both need an antenna, and the antenna needs to be tuned.

Also, if you are operating them close like that, you can also damage the receive on the radios.

also, when 2 radios are too close, it over loads the receive circuits on the radio ant thats why its garbled.

Will it work with a cb radio

No. CB's operate at the 27 MHz on 22 predetermined frequencies allowed for Citizen Band radios; and your Motorola XV1100 radio is a VHF 150-170 MHz radio with a set amount of built in frequencies to choose from, designed for business use.
