05 radio

Post by go1dwing »

My 05 1800 is having a problem with receiving stereo fm. The volume is low and stereo signal goes in and out. Tried another antenna and checked all connections, did not help. In fact I disconnected the antenna and it made no difference. I had this issue even before I removed factory CD player as it stopped working. I purchased the bike used. Since I've owned it, radio never worked properly. It has an mp3 plug that works perfect and plays music through factory system but would like to listen to radio. Appreciate any help. I should add that the CB is not on and I am using the 4 speaker system and not helmet audio.

It may be just the antenna cable. look to see if the cable is plugged into the radio. I had a friend that had a bad cable on a 1999 GL1500 that was bad from the factory. We discovered it when we ohmed it out.
It ain't the destination but the getting there. You are not lost until you run out of gas.
