Question about CB Radios

1 Answer

Feedback HELP! I recently put my Cobra 25 NW in my 87 Ford Ranger and when I turn on the key I get feedback from the electric fuel pump! Any ideas? It worked just fine in the freightliner I was driving. I would appreciate any assistance I can get. Thanks, Jeff

Re: feedback

Hi Jeff,
Welcome to the noisy Ford system. Unfortunally, most electrical items do get picked up in the CB radio. If you want to try to quiet the sitution, I have suscessfully installed grounding straps to the chassis of the vehicle from the problem source, but I will warn you, these attemps can be fruitless most of the time. Another hopeful cure is to add a choke coil ( noise filter ) in line with the positive wire of the CB. I really haven't found that to work well though unless you have alternator niose. Good Luck
