Stereo won't turn off

Post by lewfoer » Wed Jan 19, 2011 1:43 am

When I bought my Goldwing the stereo would turn off when the key was turned off. It now stays on even when the key is in the off or lock positions. Is there a relay that could be stuck closed or is this a bad ignition switch? I bought this bike two years ago and it had an aftermarket stereo installed when I bought it.

It could be a chafed wire, but most likely it's going to be a bad ignition switch.
