Hey guys and gals. I’m hoping I can get some help and be a quick fix. I’m hooking up my cb in my truck. Hooked it all up, powered on all good, til I keyed up mike, power all lost. Checked fuses all good, replaced anyway. Checked fuse panel in truck all good. Put test light on, checked every fuse in panel. All good. However put test light on power wire that connects to cb, nothing. What wood be my next move.? I’m far from being any kind of electrician. I really need to get cb connected, have pilot car move in the am. Please help

What do you have it hooked to? The 12vdc accessory terminals on the bottom of the dashboard?

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Oh wait, they don't have those anymore. But there is usually an accessory power connection block somewhere. Google it for your tractor. And check the fuse in the CB power cord.

Was the antenna hooked up when the problem started? Is it an external antenna, or an integral antenna that you cannot visually see?

Trace back whatever "power"wire you hooked up....You didn't mention what type of truck, a semi I assume lol

Hopefully "if" its a company truck, and someone had it before you, they weren't being a jerk, and put a straight pin in the coax someplace, hidden. NOT GOOD If so, , keying the mic, fried the c.b. radios finals inside :(
