Clock, Radio, Mute switch. Help

Post by WVJefo » Sat Jan 19, 2013 7:32 pm



Hi All
Got my 1994 Aspencade and have a couple miles on it on those rare nice days this Jan. BUT here is the rub

1 Clock does not work when key is off. Start bike and clock says 1:00 everytime.
2 Radio get lousy reception. Live in the city so should get something in stereo
3 Mute button doesn't work.

Any ideas will be tried, tested, and appreciated.

1. circuit that is alive with key off is not connected. get a wiring diagram and fine it.
2. antenna not hooked up..or not clean pull connections clean and reinstall.
3. open up the switch housing and clean it out with contact cleaner and compressed air.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
RB
