Need to pick some electronic gods brains.
Yet another thread by me today. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
Alrighty, I got two questions, first is the truck itself.
I got a CEL today on the way home, and my truck died as I pulled into the local O'Reily's to get it checked. After checking the code, it said my Mass Air Flow Sensor has a fault due to low voltage. DTC: 157 to be exact. The guys at the store told me to check all the grounds and clean connections for that particular wire. My question is would the MAF having low voltage cause the truck to die? I don't know crap about electrical stuff, so any help would be appreciated.
And speaking of not knowing anything about electrical stuff, that brings me to the next question. CB's.
Went to a local shop today and found a Uniden CB for $40, or a Midland CB for $30. Or, I could install a rather large Cobra 148F GTL that my dad has. Which would you guys install? And in order to do that, what all do I need? Here is a basic rundown of what I think I need:
CB with mounting plate/hardware for that
Wiring (should come with the CB if I buy one, but what all do I need just to make sure?)
Antenna (got that covered)
Anything else I should add to that list?
I am leaning more towards the Midland CB because it had a nice bracket, and it was small, so it would be perfect for the truck. The Uniden would be my second choice because it was a little bit bigger, however, the bracket was odd, and I think I would probably install it like RedNeckStone has his installed behind the console, along with the Cobra if I used that one.
Anyway, thanks in advance!
