Question about Connex 3300 240-Channels Base CB Radio

1 Answer

Loose hot wire

The ground pin on my radio was pushed almost all the way in. When I attempted to push it out the hot came out of the circuit board. I can't tell wich hole it goes back in so I can solder it. Can anyone give me a number on the board?

    Thanx, I did that but ended up taking to the cb shop because it wouldn't get out like it was supposed to and then stopped receiving. Ended up buying a Northstar pushing about 48 watts for 100.00 bucks. CB tech still has my connex.What do you think of the new cobra blue tooth? Thanx, Rick.

I do not have a Connex with me on the road, but if you would email me this question, I will look at one when I get home in a couple days and I will email you back as well as post it here, unless someone else can help you before I make it back to Texas.

    I have opened up a connex 3300hp. The power wire is inserted in an unnumbered hole. It is between D91 and D93. On newer radios, the hole has a white shaded circle around it. It looks like the whole that the ground goes in, just it is not marked. I took 2 pics, but they are kinda blurry. My camera doesn't take up close pics that well. The pics files are too big to insert here. If I resize them, You probably would not be able to see them. If you send me an email, I can send them to you.

    I tried to insert the pics here, but that option is not working. I uploaded them to my photobucket, and here are the links to both of them.

    Thats cool. Those Northstar radios are pretty good. That is a good buy for $100. They don't produce Northstar anymore.

    As for the Bluetooth Cobra, I have not messed with on in person, but the do sound like they are going to be pretty cool.

I have a 2006 chrysler sebring 2.4L i checked the relay and fuse but no sound i push the steering wheel horn it steal wont work but it clicks. Have any idea what else it could be?

At the proper fuse, did you check for voltage at the fuse circuit, hot all the time. For the horn relay in the picture, pin 8 is hot all the time. If you use proper jumper wire between pin 8 and pin 10, the horn should sound. If it does, have to check coil/control side of relay, voltage and ground.
The horn button and wiring in steering column is part of horn relay ground circuit.

Water not going from inlet valve to ice maker. I can switch plastic connectors and hold push water switch on door front to make the valve open and send water to the ice maker.

Hi Rick,

Typically, the hot side of circuits are switched - neutral is always presented at the load. This is for safety. If hot were always present - any accidental ground (at any time) would either power up the load until removed - or cause direct short if it contacted the always hot terminal. If the hot is present at the solenoid only during times it is needed to fill, then you you could safely connect the neutral from the other solenoid. HOWEVER - since I do not know which fridge you have and can't verify the wiring - you'll have to do some testing on your own before attempting. Have a look at the neutral side of the solenoid and see if you can't locate a break in the wire somewhere - with the fridge unplugged.

2001 nissan pathfinder radio keeps blowing a fuse

before you condemn the radio as the problem,check to make sure the fuse is not shared by other accessories.often times other components share the same circuit. one thing you might check is the fuse box itself. if the circuit is loose behind the fuse box this will cause an overheating condition. lose wires causes arcing and overheating is the result. lose plugs where the radio plugs to the main power source {plastic connectors} maybe worn and the pins could be loose or been pushed back causing partial contacts. all this will result in heating in the affected areas. a good ground is necessary to properly complete a circuit or high resistance will result.

End-of-run receptacle dead yet the others on circuit are hot

The one feeding the last one has loose wire. Are you using the push in instead of the screw? The push are bad for losing contact as they only touch a very small part of the wire. I always use the screw to hook up switches and receptacles.

How do you retrofit a 4 pin D104 to a 2 pin model?

A two pin does not use a Push To Talk circuit so one wire you want is the Audio wire and the other is the ground wire.

Does this switch wire like a normal single pole switch ? Why does it look like a three way switch? and why is the so called ground screw silver like the nuteral

I am not sure which switch you have. The Hubbell HBL 1281 is shown in the catalog as a single pole switch. It comes in several models. One model has a single lever that goes up (ON) and goes down (OFF).
Another model is a push button. Push once and it is ON, push again and it is OFF.
The above two switches are to be wired to break the hot (black) wire going to the controlled device. Hot should be connected to the bottom, generally, load should be connected to the top.
There is no NEUTRAL wire location. If there is a ground screw, it should be green.

There is also a three position model that operates two circuits, the middle position is OFF for both circuits, the top is ON for one circuit and the bottom is ON for the second circuit.

Audio Technica PRO-35: need wiring diagram for mic end

If you feel the shield goes to the middle, try red on one terminal and white on the other. If not, reverse it.

If it's labeled on the circuit 1, pin 2, pin 3, then pin 1 is usually ground, pin 2 is hot (red), and pin 3 is cold.

2001 Jaguar radio cuts out when I go over a bump.Then goes back on when it feels like it. Its been in the shop they can not find out whats wrong. Can someone help. Thanks

Hello, my name is Ben. Everyone seems to be looking at the wiring going to the radio. I believe your problem is the actual radio. You have something loose inside the radio. I think you are probably going to need a new radio to solve this problem.

Roady XT "Antenna" problem

one of 3 things, either your antenna is not insight of a skies view to receive the signal, or its wire is broken at the antenna, but if you remove the antenna connection frequently it pulls the center wire out of the connection on the end that fits into the radio when its plugged in push on the conductor at the back of the plug and see if this helps,alos if connection is loose take a safety pin and carefully between the outer plug case ans the ground fingers around the center pin push these in so you get a better ground, and lastly try another substitute antenna, I have re-soldered my connections numerous times to fix this issue, delphi doesn't make a very rugged product, good luck

04 tiburon, I have power at the radio and to the amp but no music, put in new amp still no music????????????????????

What features exist with this radio?... CD player, AM/FM w/cassette? When you write 'no music,' do you mean none of the features are working AT ALL? You said you've verified power at the radio. Did you verify this because the visual display comes on (radio station display, CD track, etc)? Does this image/pic look like your radio? If so, there are TWO power inputs to it.

Yellow wire & Red wire (Y=pin 7, R= pin 16). Pin 16 is always HOT (ON), and pin 7 is ONLY HOT when the ignition key is in Accessory or Run position. You also have a connection/circuit to the amplifier - pin 12 (white wire with orange stripe) to pin 8 of M63-2.
Hope this helps. Once you've verified you have good connections (power & grounds -- and no shorts to ground), I'd say the audio head (radio) is defective.
