Re: gl1500 low volume on the radio

You can leave the 5 wire plug off as well. As far as what I do..I learned how to read those fold up road maps to navigate our road trips when I was very very young...Reading schematics is the same...Just a road map to different places..each place has it's own character... Lemme know if it works..I'...

Re: gl1500 low volume on the radio

Here ya go..iffin you can solder...attach a small wire to the jumper just above the big plug..You should leave it unplugged..attach the wire to a ground..I'd think even under one of the screws would be fine.The jumper is about the size of a paper staple close to the plug.Heres the pictures.Its J110...

Re: gl1500 low volume on the radio

However that little blue wire broke off at the terminal so now I have to figure out how to get back in there so I can just cut t...

Re: gl1500 low volume on the radio

With the #5 wire disconnected from the green 15 pin connector there is no voltage present at the wire but there is voltage at #5 at the connector plugged into the mother board. I grounded the wire but still no volume.

Sorry to keep bugging you and I know this is taking FOREVER...but time allows just so much. Can you plug it all back in..go back to the picture of that big plug(15 wire)..test pin5 for volts..if there's any volts that's the reason it's muted...the cassette circuit is suppose to hold it to zero volt...

Re: gl1500 low volume on the radio

That shouldn't have caused a problem.
Does your radio have 3 small buttons on the right side or 2.?

Re: gl1500 low volume on the radio

Well at least you confirmed it's not power related causing it .I'm trying to think of anything we could have missed. I don't want to just tell you to replace it without positive confirmation that the radio is just bad.. I'm not a parts changer. I'm trying to come up with a way to isolate the radio ...

By the way,does your bike have that fader control?
Rear speakers?
Yes it has the fader control and I can fade the sound from front to back. So I guess it's working.

As I understand,the "I simple" device is a aux audio input and transmitts it to a FM radio station...So we're still working with a low volume problem.
YES, that is correct.

Ok.im looking at the intercom mute circuit. I assume that there is volts on the mute line when the button is pushed? The schematic indicates that the mute is activated when there's volts on either.
