    me and a mate did this to my volvo. he "hardwired" it up to the ciggie lighter so it doesnt go off with the engine. pretty simple to do

    yes but this cb draws 22 amps at max power so can not connect to the ciggie lighter too much current for a normal 10 amp ciggie lighter

    thanks for the help but it would be very dangerous indeed
    the cb unit pwr out put is 100 watts or 22 amp at 12.8 v dc
    so thats out of the question
