Dash Bulbs LED replacement

Post by Revran » Thu Mar 07, 2019 6:58 pm



I just replaced the four blue bulbs in my 1999 Goldwing SE with LED's and I am getting crackling noises through my front speakers, even with my radio off. Any suggestions how to filter that noise out

Have you done something else on the bike?

There shouldn't be any noise caused by a regular LED bulb, could you share a picture and the properties of the LEDs you have used?

Maybe when moving the dash a wire has gotten loose and is shorting out somewhere.

That was it exactly. I had the unit laying on the front and it was causing a short. All good now. Thanks for your responses
