Re: How to free stuck pushbutton switches

I got in touch with Larry Mauer at wing connect. He gave me a test to do on my unit. It turns out my amplifier is blown and needs to be repaired.

Re: Auto Tire on the Rear, GL1800

I am looking at a a cheap Walmart winter tire 195 65r16. It has what looks like a more rounded tread profile. Will the tire fit? It has a 400 tread depth.

Re: No Sound from Radio, MP3 Player and Aux

Thanks for the heads up Mike B. I live in eastern Canada and will have to wait till my migration south this winter to send my radio away for repairs/upgrade... My amp is blown. I learned of the testing procedure Thru your lead.

Re: No Sound from Radio, MP3 Player and Aux

I realize these posts are a few years old. I have a 2002 gl1800. There is no 40 amp fuse in the panel. My speakers don't work but everything works fine when using headset.

Re: How to free stuck pushbutton switches

Mute works fine. Switch works, the word Mute comes on and off in the display . Do you know where I might find the 40 amp amplifier fuse mentioned in previous posts? I have a 2002 model.

Re: How to free stuck pushbutton switches

Thanks for the feedback luck. My buttons all seem to work. Intercom works, radio and aux work thru headphone, when I alternate to speakers by pushing the audio button, nothing, no sound. The speaker symbol shows but no sound. Volume control still works. Just no sound.

I have navigated all the usual steps with no success. The guy I bought it from couldn't help, said they worked fine. I need hel...
