Connex 3300 went to ground what can i do

There is something shorted in the power supply. See if you can get a schematic from their website. Most likely parts to check are the voltage regulators, protection diodes and capacitors. A shorted diode will go to ground too.

I am wanting to hook up a 10 meter ham radio a connexcx 4600. In a cascadia freightliner semi truck. It has a built in amp in the radio 200 watts I was wondering what gauge wire and what size inline...

you will need some 12 guage wire and a 5 amp fuse.Make sure when you hook it up that you check your SWR because if you don't youcould burn that nice connex.If you are not sure on what to do I would suggest having someone help you the knows what they are doing.

Will a connex 4600 turbo cb radio operate cool enough in a dash enclosure?

I would say yes it has a large heatsink. The variable might be the tuning. But if it's amp is not being pushed any harder than factory you will be fine. Nice radio I prefer them over the 4400turbo and the 3600hp it has the board like a 4300 not the 3300s like the fore mentioned.

I cant get my connex to come on

If no power, check the red and black wires inside the radio, there should be a black diode right is near the leads often shorts if wires are hooked up backwards, also look for an open foil on the printed circuit board.

I have a Connex 3300. I do not have original plug (power). however, I do have one that fits. I need confirmation this is the right plug. It is three wires. One black(neg.) and two red (positive). I...

The center wire doesn't do anything. Its the outer wires. You can get a standard CB plug with 2 wires that will work just fine. If that plug fits, I it will work. My concern would be if the pos and neg are the correct sides. It should be, But I wouldn't know unless I looked at it.

DO NOT HOOK the radio up with the power wires backwards. Or you will blow the polarity protection diodes. They are there to blow if the radio is hooked up backwards.

If you look at the plug. There is a side the goes to a point, and the other side is square. The black wire, Ground, should be on the side that goes to a point. If it does, then that plug is standard.

It's fine to use and hook up in the usual way. Do not hook up the center wire. It does nothing in the radio. You can clip it, and put a bit of shrink tube on the end as so it does not have a chance to short on anything.

If you are not sure about hooking this power cord to your connex, just go on ebay, and get a regualr CB power wire. They are cheap. It should only have 2 wires.
