Speaker problem

Post by Henry34653 » Thu Apr 11, 2019 6:42 pm



2006 GL1800 Navi

I drove over railroad tracks while the radio was playing.. Once I crossed the speakers were still playing, but they sounded as if they were in a barrel. The levels of bass, treble and fader are all at zero.. Any ideas?

Thanks

Seems like you momentaraly lost power, and when that happens, all settings revert to neutral of "factory" settings. You may also have lost all your radio station presets.

Check the connections at your battery. They may be just a tad loose. Otherwise, perhaps a loose ground connection which is much harder to track down.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
