Default vx-6000 with vtx-1000

Recently swapped a vx-6000 paired with a vtx-1000 repeater from an old car to new car. Now there is no audio transmitted from the vx-160 handheld. It will recieve audio, and when when the PTT button on the handheld is pressed the radio transmit led is lit and the repeater led's are all lit just no audio on the other end. Not sure where to start with this one, any ideas?

Default VX-6000 to VXR-1000 connections

Please verify connections are correct between the VX-6000 and VXR-1000, also verify RF cable and antenna. Attached documentation required.

VSTech has the right info. Since VXR1000 power, control, PTT, COR and audio headed to the portable are all working, it shouldn't be anything ugly. The problem is likely in the interconnect cable that got pulled / flexed during the remount.

Do a simple continuity check on the cable for a broken wire or mechanical connection. I can never remember if your missing audio is on pin 2 or pin 6 of the DB-9, and my cheat-sheet is pinned over my bench back at the shop. Check them all.

Chances are you'll find the issue in the DB9 or DB25 cable shell. Broken wires and bent DB-pins are nor unheard of either. If you don't find anything obviously disconnected, open up the VXR1000 and check for audio from the portable and trace the path back into the VX6000.

Also, don't be surprised if you fix one thing and break another. One bad connection may indicate none of them are up to par.
