Intercom stays on Mute

Postby ceasarelloie » Sat Sep 24, 2016 10:58 pm



I have used the buttons on the Radio to raise the mute Volume and the other setting says Intercom Muted.. This is a 2010 Goldwing with CB Radio.Everything else works fine accept the CB remains in mute Mode. CAN ANYONE HELP?

When I read your title, I figured you were riding an old '94 1500 like mine with ""sticky" buttons, but a 2010?
Hmmm...someone will be along shortly that knows what to do. ;)

I might be wrong, but in the GL1500 when the intercom is off, you can hear the CB, but can't transmit thru it, could it be the same in the 1800? Maybe at Honda they kept the line of work and just updated the systems to more electronics. Just a thought.

Try and use some contact cleaner in the place that you think would be causing the problem. Work the buttons real good while/ after spraying to loosen up and cover any and all plastic so no cleaner gets on it. Good way to damage paint and chrome.

I just bought a can of that electronics switch cleaner stuff at an auto parts house a couple days ago.
I haven't used it yet (weather turned cool & rainy) and I haven't read the how to use instructions on the can yet. I'm glad I read your post about damaging paint and chrome before I went out and soaked the bike down in it. :lol:

There isn't any warning that the product may damage paint or chrome. :roll:

I shall still heed your warning. ;)

Usually, anything other than WAX on your bike's paint isn't something I'd take a chance with.

I wouldn't get it on the paint or chrome on purpose, but now I'll be extra careful when I use it. ;)

Title says Intercom stays mute.
Post says CB stays mute.
??????????????????????????
If it's the Icom, maybe you need to lower the mute level.
If it's the CB, maybe you need to lower the squelch level.
