bmw CB problem

I bought a bmw cb for my 05 lt. I installed it acording to the poor instructions and I have all kinds of electrical noise. The radio does send a carrier signal but no nodulation from the mike. I went to the dealer who told me that it was the headset cords and new ones would cost $70.00 each. Has anybody had the same problem and does the new cord actually work? How do I correct the electrical noise interference problem? The dealer is interested in selling the radio but not interested in helping solve the problem.

Is BMWWO in Eugene your contact? They are not willing to help you? PM me and we might be able to work on it together. There are not too many people interested in troubleshooting CB's on this forum of late.

The new lower cords were introduced by BMW in late '05 or early '06 as I recall. They were brought out to fix a major noise issue with CM and the transmit side. Most folks said they saw an improvement with the new cords. There are several other issues that many of us encountered with the BMW CB and most are documented in the archives on this site. Try doing a search. My specific problem was a high frequency squeal when transmitting which wasn't helped by the new cords. The eventual fix for me was to by pass the relay/filter box that is supplied with the radio. I took power directly from the battery through an automotive relay powered by the heated seat circuit. Most dealers, including mine, aren't interested in trouble shooting CB radios because they don't know anything about them. I'd like to try to help you but unfortunately your not exactly in my neighborhood. I wish you luck with your problem.

I want to thank yall for the advice. I will try the new cord when the dealer calls and tells me to come up. The nearest dealer is 110 mile away.
