I too have a CB issue

Postby jeffm » Tue May 04, 2010 2:04 pm



Just got my toy the other day. An 85 Aspencade. The CB turns on and all seem to work other than the channel changer on the handlbar. The transmit button works but I cannot change channel. I did get to the brown connector just prior to going into the unit itself and connected a continuity checker and got continuity with pushing the channel change button. I am going to guess that the issue might be in the CB radio itself. Anyone know who can fix it or is it easier to get another one? Any other troubleshooting ideas? I would really like to get this working for this summers riding season.

Thanks.
Jeff

Come to find out it was the CH9 switch was dirty. Sprayed it and loosened it up now I can change channels.

I wouldn't have thought of it either...my 1100 CB doesn't have a channel 9 button. :)
