CB showing RX all the time

Post by Gary939 »

Good evening everyone, I hope you are having a great day. As for me, I have a little issue with the CB on my 2015 Goldwing. The other day the battery completely died and I put it on a battery charger. After the battery charged the bike started right up no problems. However, the CB is now showing Rx all the time like someone is talking. When I press the PTT on the cb it will go into Tx mode. As soon as I let go of the PTT button. The Rx displays again. I can not hear radio as long as the Rx is displayed. I can turn off the CB and hear the radio just fine. Any suggestions? Thanks

Turn the ignition key on and remove the negative battery connection for 5 seconds and that will reset the audio units processor and more than likely fix the problem.

Check your squelch to see if it was accidentally turned.

I'm with Smilam, the CB will have reset back to standard settings which has a very low squelch value (something like 3 or 5), just increase the squelch to 10 and it will probably all be good.
