If it was working fine before storage it is most likely electrolytic capacitors. These "can" looking things that are all over the circuit board. These little cans are filled with electrolyte like a battery. If this leaks out or evaporated as they are known to do they will render useless or degrade circuit voltage and current in circuit.

check your mic cord to see if you have a broken wire on the inside.You might want to get another mike for a spare but it could also be an audio transister.

I have a RCI 2950 comes on keyed up and stays keyed untill you turn it off. I have replaced the auto amp, all voltage regulators and the black diode with yellow strip below mic plug with no change. I need...


i have the same radio rci 2950. Ive had the same problem with mine,turns out with mine the processor would lock up,turning the radio off & on repeadly would clear the problem and the radio would work fine x-mit & recieve. the solution to fixing the problem is to replace the memory backup battery this battery works similar to a computer motherboard cmos battery when this battery goes dead all sorts of strange things happen to the radio wont transmit wont recieve or like your problem transmits continiously. the problem with replacing this battery is finding out what year & model your ranger 2950 is. the internet says only first generation ranger 2950s use the battery second genration & third generation do not use the battery. but the internet could be wrong. so i suggest getting a hold of (usa ranger.com) & give them a phone call or email and ask them about the year your radio was made. they may even service it for you or if you are electronic savvy you can do it yourself. the battery is located close to the main cpu on the front panel if yours uses a battery.

2950 RCI WONT TURN ON ONLY A BACKGROUND LIGHT


You either have a bad LCD display OR the connection for the LCD display is loose/off. Its impossible to tell what channel you are on with a 2950 without the screen working, but when you turn the channel knob do you hear any other cb transmitting on ANY channel?? This is a tough one!! I really need some more info on the radio.

Open the case and look at the area that the display is in (front of radio). Slightly wiggle all of the little plugs in that area. If you see the LCD screen come on or flash then you know where your problem lies. If not, then you're probably looking at buying a LCD display for the radio.

Good luck.

My ranger 2950 wont transmit or receive sounds like a relay problem but dont no for shour can you tell me what is wrong with that radio thank you.


could be a number of different problems causing this. I would start with your microphone make sure it is working. it is responsible for transmit & recieve. next check to see if the memory battery is dead this will also cause this problem. next check the regulators in the radio to see if they are supplying voltage.next check voltages in different parts of radio to see if all stages are recieving power follow these steps and something will show up also check your switching diodes to see if they are bad the diodes responsible for x-mit & r-mit of transceiver.

Power windows not working


Hey...I went through the same problem. It seems that if you have the stock mac stereo system and the fuses are not blown up, is more likely that your three amps do not work either. You have to rewire the car's stereo system from the car's stereo directly onto the speakers or an amp if you choose to include more sound. As for the power windows, as frustrating as it may seem, change the double throw double pole in each door. The connectors corrode from the inside. Try scraping off the copper metal and it will work for a few days and it will not work again... So just reorder a new from Ford. They run up to 40$ ok? Ben
