Question about Two-Way Radios
Most mobile radios need only a power connection and an antenna. If neither of the two radios you tried are actually powering up, you will want to check to make sure you actually have power at the power connector.
You should see approx 12 VDC using a voltmeter at the power connector. If you don't then check your installation, make sure you don't have any blown fuses, etc.
Ideally you want the power lines for the radio to connect directly to the automobile battery. If you are getting power from somewhere else in the car's electrical system then you may actually need to have the car running (or the key turned to the ON position) for the radio to get power.
If you have power at the connector and the radio still won't turn on then you might have a problem with the radio itself.
Hope that helps,
