NO SOUND ON CB RADIO

Post by baker1931 » Mon Dec 25, 2017 8:28 pm



I have had this bike for 2 years and the CB radio has never worked. There is power to the unit for the lights come on and you can change channels. There is no sound thru headset or speakers. I have turned every button on off, right and left and also the handlebar controls.
Thanks
Allen

His bike is an SE , the fader is on the the left handlebar control. If you turn the squelch all the way and the volume is up you should get some loud noise. Sierra electronic is a great place to send it if it is not working properly. Have you tried to have someone with a CB talk to you?
