Default CDM chirp Chirp

Double Check your Power Source/Supply and wiring for voltage dfrops under current load. When the voltage drops to about 11-11.5 volts on the back two pins of the radio during TX it give a low battery indicator. It could be a corroded connection in the line I have seen that drop the voltage just enough to Bleep Bleep!

Get a good volt meter and trace the power path to ground while keying and you probably will find the problem.
It is annoying when things look good but I have always been able to find something. Had a bad fuse holder once,spade lug on the battery,bad splice connector etc.

I have about 40 CDM1550s in my fleet.

Good Luck

You already got the correct answer, but here is another story about the same issue: I had a CDM-1250 in a fire truck where it would do that whenever the halogen lightbar was on and the engine was at an idle. Fine while driving, but park the truck and try to give an on-scene report and it would chirp-chirp and cancel the transmit.

I have a 2003 F-350 Powerstroke Diesel, Do you know what would make the engine RPM's decrease whenever I transmit on my CDM1250?
