    I would get a cheap multi-meter ($15-25) so you can check which wire is positive (+) and which is negative (+) connecting the CB to the wrong or reverse polarity will blow a fuse, if you are lucky. The black wire will almost certainly connect to your radio black wire.

    Even just a cheap test light will let you know which wires are ‘hot’
