well, something fishy is going on. i installed a cobra CB in my truck three days ago, and everything worked fine at first, now half my gauges stopped working, trans temp, volts, and fuel gauge, but speed,tach, and temp all work fine..... well, also, the truck sounds like it's starting way harder(like batt is almost dead) but it does start. when i turn off the truck, the radio will still stay on for a second also, never did that before. for power to the cb i tapped into a fuse on the fuse block using a wire tap, the cb has an inline fuse in it also....and i grounded it under the dash. i then grounded the cb mounting plate to the frame also. the cb stopped working also...it powers up, but can't recieve/transmit. unhooking the cb doesn't help the rest of the problems either. thanks in advance for the help ya'll!!!!!
