GL1800 Stereo problem

Postby Steve Stobbs » Thu Jan 20, 2011 9:49 am



I have a GL1800 2008 Delux and when playing music can not seem to stop the volume changing up or down the range no matter what I do with the settings via the volume or mode control. Is there a default setting I can revert back to ? As any one had this problem out there or is it just me not setting it correctly?

Reading your manual will show by pushing volume control button down it makes changes for settings. Other than that Dealer would fix anything more serious under warranty.

As you say the volume is changing randomly when you ride, it sounds like you have a fault on the stereo control panel. As you have a 2008 it should still be covered by the Honda warranty, so I would suggest you try that first. There is no default volume level that I know off, or anyway to lock the volume setting. If the stereo is out of warranty, then Sierra electronics will be your best bet to get it fixed..

Thanks for the replies, what I did not say about the problem is I am using a Soundgate HONPDSDR plug and play interface so I can use my ipod classic via the bike controls. This worked well on my 2001 GL1800 however on this 2008 bike the volume fluctuation problem seems more pronouced when using the ipod as opposed to FM radio. That may throw some more light on the problem if anyone can help. Steve Stobbs UK.
