My bearcat 880 has no power or lights. power from power cord is good. Power goes to 3 pin jack. Inside radio I get no power by testing positive and negative wires soldered to jack. I find no break in the connections. Anyone know what could cause this?

Thanks silver bullet.

Sounds like it is time to pull the cover off the radio and look for a internal fuse or corrosion. If you are comfortable using a multi meter check to see if there is power after the switch is turned on. A can of corrosion cleaner might be your friend if you are careful, if not take it to a repair shop or just buy another AM radio because they are cheap!
