many trucks have a ground wire in the harness as the cabins are fibre glass or not grounded around the cabin mounts If the radio grounds out through the frame , then there would be no ground for the radio or the aerial wire
to fit this particular may require such a wire in the harness for the radio which it probably doesn't have
As you have been alerted to a problem, it would be advisable to talk with professional radio fitters who work on trucks to get the correct advice before starting on the job
it could save a lot of frustration

If you disable any part of the radio that does not pertain to CB then you could actually do damage to the radio. the best thing to do is leave it on the CB band and don't touch it.

If you ground the audio wire, you will have no noise or mic function at all. The mic hot wire and the shield should be enough to avoid hum.

Is the CB getting its power from the amp(?) By amp I will assume you are talking about a signal amplifier..

people think that if they peak and tune a radio it will work better. First, if its brand new from the factory you shouldn't have to,all you should have to do is lower the dead key raise the modulation and you are good to go . The proper way to do this is with a spectrom analyzer . Do you have one? Cheap on ebay ,may 4000-5000 dollars but if you get one and set that radio perfect you should hear anyone complain that you are interfering with their radio.

Hello
As a general rule of thumb all radios should be connected directly to the vehicle 12 battery. This connection cuts down on vehicle induced noise and allows the radio to have access to the full current it needs to operate at full efficiency. Make sure there are matched fuses in the positive and negative leads going to the radio.
Hope this answers your question.

On the RF Hi Lo switch do you have power? Is the switch ok? That switch regulates the TX power and if it is open, you have none.

don't hit any more bumps. The problem could be in several areas. I'm going to say that you may have a loose capacitor inside If I had the radio here I could fix it but because the problem may be so spread it could be a lot of things Are you a truck driver? If you are take it to a CB shop at one of the many truck stops and see if they can fix it for you .
