I was recently given this radio from a friend of mine. He bought the radio new about 2 months before. The radio worked fine. He took the radio to a local CB shop to get some extras added on. As far as I know he had talkback added, a meter that changes colors, and he had it tuned up. When he got it back it did nothing at all. So he gave it to me. Is there anything that I should check out.

Re: Cobra 29 NW LTD does nothing
Yes, take it back to the cb shop. If they are a reputable shop, they will stand behind their work.
I own a shop and have always stood behind my work 100%. Once I went so far as to buy a brand new Magnum S-3 to replace a used one for a customer that one was messed up doing a power modification that should not have been done on that radio. I came to find out that the company I bought the mod kit from didn't know what they were doing and had the instructions wrong. I still have the broken radio to prove it.

Depending on the model, the Silverado may have an amplifier between the OEM radio and the speakers. If that is the case, you will have to remove it and wire directly to the speakers. Check the wiring schematics for the original truck radio option (one source is Alldatadiy.com).
At least you got 6 months of use out of yours, which is 6 months more than I got out of mine. I took mine out of the box and it would not even turn on. When I called the manufacturer, they said they could not help me at all. I bought it for my daughter to take to college, and I guess it is just going to go in the trash.
I took it to the original operator who checked the imei ,and they told me the data package was cancelled because the phone was under a business plan of 2 years and someone unlocked the phone so they blacklisted it.
Now I have to make a new contract and all will be resolved.
have you disconected the battery for half hour or so this oftern resets the lock code but you normally only have 3 chances before it locks out again. if not also post your radio serial number and model number and i will be able to clarify your code.
Three months ago I had the same problem. My wife paid over $300 for the
radio, the portable boom-box and subscription less than 2 years ago. Sirius
offered no help or discount on a new radio. Guess they follow the
Microsoft doctrine because they suggested I upgrade to a new radio.
feeling frustrated, I took the receiver apart, thinking that a stray
voltage on an IC ping maybe causing the problem. It was only a guess.
I don't even have a wiring diagram At any rate, once I had it apart,
I used a small flathead screw driver and drug it (lightly) across all
IC pins, possibly in an effort to drain the voltage. Please do this in
a low static area.
When I put everything back together, the
receiver worked. It's been working good the up until about 2 weeks ago,
when the same problem began again. I just finished the same process
and the receiver is working again.
I don't advocate this for anyone who doesn't know how to handle electronics.
I'm just very disappointed in Sirius for not admitting the problem and providing no discount for a newer model. I have a $10 clock radio that's 9 years old. Guess what, I don't have to take it apart every three months to keep it working.
