radio stopped working 04 1800

Post by saltmar14 »



My radio was working fine when i went to work 2 days ago, when i got off i started the bike and went to turn down the volume but the handle bar lever did not work, the tank volume how ever did work. i tried to turn off the audio system but button did not work, i tried the cb but also did not work. i also tried to change channels, no, i tried switching am, fm, aux, weather nothing. today decided to disconnect battery for a couple minutes to see if it would reset, no.

Would it take longer for memory to drain to re set? any other suggestions?

THANKS.

If you do the reset again let it sit disconnected for about 30 minutes. If no luck you might contact Larry M at: http://www.wingconnect.com/

Larry fixes 2001-2010 GL1800 audio. I think his website requires you to email him through the site.

You do not have to wait any length of time if you have the ignition turned on and then remove negative terminal cable for a few seconds and then reconnect. Leaving the ing. on will unload the capacitors quickly.

I was going to suggest removing the negative terminal cable and touching it briefly to the positive terminal, but your method is even easier.
