Sounds like a bad mic....At the 5 pin end u will see a small screw take out that screw and slide the pin cover back and you will see the 5 wires going to the pins my bet 1 or more of those ends are broken all you ned is re sod. them and all will be good .....I buy alot of broken mics and all i need do is fix the wires easy fix .....

The wiring came off and don't know howe they go by color it'got5 places to salder wires are r/b/or/b


If your asking about a Cobra radio then these links will have the pin-outs plus wiring color code for different mic's.
I had to guess what you was asking for as your question was kinda vague. And a Cobra 29 is a 4 pin mike, not 5 pin.
The 148 - 142 were 5 pin. I'll include it also.

I have a 1990 cobra 148 GTL with 5 pin side-mounted mic. I recently bought a Barjan 5 pin noise canceling mic. Is the mic compatible with my cb, or do I need to change the wiring? Larry


The wiring is not likely to be the same.

The information on the radio is here:
http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/cobra/148gtl/index.htm

You will likely need to open up the mic to identify what your wires connect to to determine the correct oreintation. it is possible too you may find one of the models listed was used by Barjan and is nothing more than a rebranded microphone.

I have a cobra 148gtl with 5 pin side plug for mic.Im trying to wire a superstar dm 1000 echo mic to it,red,yellow,blue,white,& unsheilded wires dont know were they go.???????


ALLways start with ground. Find ground on radio pin with ohm meter. EVERY thing operates off ground. Once you find ground on radio....solder your ground wire on mike cord to corresponding # on mike jack. Once you have ground on proper pin then all else is elementary......use ohm meter to see which wires are TX and RX on mike.....last wire is audio wire.

5 pin mic


All "older", "real" or "desirable" Cobra 148 GTLs came with side-mounted 5 pin microphone sockets. For wiring information, see...

cobra 4 pin is pin1= shield, pin2= mic audio (usually the shield is wrapped around the mic audio wire).pin 3= transmit or push to talk usually red or white whichever isnt wrapped with the shield, and pin4 = receive or speaker complete

5 pin cobra=1-Audio 2- Shield 3-Receive 4-Switching Wire 5-Transmit, you can jump pins 4 and two
