Re: Installing the DMC MP3 player model 9088

OzzieBruce! Before buying the J&M player I had a Bluetooth receiver mounted on top of the CB switchs with a 3M double side tape. ( paid 8$) I was using my iPhone stored in my pocket or in the trunk. I could advance or go to the previous song or pause by pushing the buttons on the Bluetooth receiver....

Re: Installing the DMC MP3 player model 9088

As longs there is room on the card you can put 1 to 1000s of songs in a single file, the disadvantage is you can not advance to the next song because the player treats the file as a single song. I have many of these files " non stop music" like DJs mixes some of these files are hours long.

Re: Installing the DMC MP3 player model 9088

Terry D! I would like to know what model is your J&M player because I have the J&M18E and the most I can put in each folder is 99 Songs on 8 GB max. If your player stops working check what you plug in to the USB it might come loose, try some Velcro behind it, that's what I did with my multi cards re...

Re: Heated seats/grips update, still baffling

I had a similar problem, when turned on, the heater will work for about 10 to 15 minutes then it will shutdown on by itself, if I'll stop for gas or shut off the engine, the heater started to work again for another 10 to 15 minutes. My problem was my heater booster, after I removed it I had no probl...

Re: After using reverse, motorcycle wont start

Next Time that happens remove the cable from the spark plug and put a screwdriver in it and get close
To the bike ground " bike frame" see if you get a spark. If you don't then could be the coil or the feed to the coil.
If turns over but won't start it's either gas not getting there or no spark.

Re: Radio and display going blank after 30 seconds to 1 minute

I had this issue more than once, when I worked on the bike listening to the radio and the seat heater being on. This drained my battery, if I turned the key off then on the radio would do that, on for a short time then will turn off.
Check your battery.

Re: electrical issue

If you have a volt meter, to check if the fuse if is blown or not, put the test leads of the volt meter across the fuse if you see voltage then the fuse needs to be replaced, if you see o v then the fuse is good.
