Is that the only device that is blowing a fuse? if it is the only thing blowing your fuse you may need to replace the charger. check the fuse to make sure it is the correct size ( usually 10 amp). check the power adapter to make sure there are no loose connections or anything in the plug that doesn't belong there. unplug the radio from the adapter and plug the adapter in without the radio see if the fuse blows . if it blows replace the adapter. if it doesn't blow the fuse check the adapter to make sure it is the right one make sure the polarity is correct

EVERYTIME I HOOK UP MY CB IT BLOWS A FUSE -- ANYONE KNOW WHY ?


Could be a bad ground, or you could be plugging into a circuit that already had to much on it. Typically you want to plug a cb into something like your cigarette lighter circuit.

Hi sounds like you have a dodgy power wire thats making contact causing fuse to blow, i would start by checking everthing on that circuit with the radio being first as that would be the most common cause

I have a 2000 gmc yukon denali and everytime i push my ciggarete lighter in it blows the fuse and my radio also stops working


Hi,
Replace the cigarette lighter. Parts houses have the right one for your Yukon.
The lighter itself shorts out so when you push it in it creates an immediate dead short . Fuse Blows.
Thanks for using Fix Ya.

I just got my first cb and am trying to install it. I have connected the red wire in the fuse box( to the radio) and grounded the black wire. turned the car on and I cannot get any power to the CB, but the...


Take a deep breath and start over! The best way to power this little radio is probably through the cigarette lighter or 12vdc accessory jack. It is simple and straight forward and no fuse box or negative ground wires to worry about. Go the Radio Shack, purchase an adaptor (cig lighter type) and hook it up to your radio wiring being careful to watch polarity. You may have to have your ignition on to run the radio, but that is much safer that maybe blowing up the unit.

Unless you are running a larger more powerful unit or an amp, there is no added benefit to hooking the radio into the fuse box.
