    Jon is entirely correct. Try a different microphone. Nearly all Cobra radios (and "export" derivatives) use the wiring for the microphone as part of the speaker wiring (allows speaker microphones & similar). If that resolves the problem, check the wiring on the original microphone.

    THANK YOU GUYS! and here is my problem

    [​IMG]

    if you can see, there are only 3 wires going to the end of the mic cord, one is shredded/missing. i dont think i can solder it or fix it so i have to get a new mic, but im pretty sure this was the culprit, as i have eliminated any other possibilities.
