New air filter no radio or flashers

Post by SavannahGW »



First time on the forum. I watched all the videos I could find on changing your air filter. Was easier than I thought. Finished it last night and went for ride today and found I have no radio and no turn signals. Took it back apart can't find anything that I missed. Anybody got any ideas?

I don't know what I did but the radio has started working. Now just to determine what's wrong with the turn signal.

It sounds like one of the connectors is not fully seated. When you went back in, you disturbed it enough that the radio started working. Double check any connector that had to come apart, I think you'll find your culprit.

Those connectors have to be tight, when you put them together make sure you a CLICK on each one. The most common thing with the radio is not plugging in the antenna.
