Okay, I am TRYING to install my CB radio. I have a Cobra 18WXST. It comes with 3 wires (black=ground, orange=12V source, red=12v accessory??????????) I am hooking the orange one up to my cigaretter lighter in the center console, where the CB will be placed. Where on earth does the red wire go?

Also, with the antenna, I have the 18ft of cable and the hardware that came with it. However, the hardware is written in Swahili or some crazy-ass gibberish, and I have no clue how to connect the wire to the antenna or the mount that I am using. Can anyone save me? Please?

You want the orange to go to something that alway has power (ie direct to battery). You want the red going to an accessory fuse/wire (something that is turned off with the vehicle).

As for the antenna and mount. What type? They are usually self explainitory.
