Cb blowed?

I couldnt find where to put this so it's going here till someone moves it. Anyway here's my issue. I'm trying to install my cb on my f250. So I mounted my unknown brand 5' antenna on the rear bumper, used a 90 degree coax angle connector and 2 12' cables connected together with a double female adapter and finally an old cobra 19vdx or whatever that I bought of Craigslist a little while back. I plug it up and long behold nothing on all 40 channels. Now I live within 1 mile of 3 major highways in nc and my dads a truck driver so I know for a fact there's constant cb traffic. What's my issue? Help would be greatly appreciated.

If its blowed it would smell funny, and be no power; happened to mine after I wired it wrong. I'd check all the connections and how if grounded its grounded right

I think the cb has issues the light on the display didn't work when I bought it. I went out and sanded some paint down to metal around the mount so it has a great ground now and still nothing.
