2003 gold wing radio control panel not working

Post by Triker5151 » Thu Jun 13, 2019 12:18 am



I was washing my bike and must have gotten the handle bar controls wet and also the push buttons that control
All functions radio buttons cb and the whole thing is dead except one fm channel that plays music I can turn it up or down
By the radio knob but that’s the only control I had a Honda mechanic pull the radio and send it off and it checked out fine
Has anyone ever experienced this or what’s a solution and fix this has been frustrating

Check for pinched or damaged wires that run under the left handlebar switch assembly.

Make sure your CB ptt switch is not activated by the clutch fluid reservoir and if you have a passenger ptt switch, check it as well. Also push every button on the system to make sure they all move and none are stuck down/on.

I checked for pinched and damaged wires and the ptt switch front and rear seem fine and I pushed all buttons to check
For stuck buttons but everything seems ok so can we come up with anything else that might be checked ?

It'n not on the auto channel search function is it. After the frame reweld on my 02 wing that button was depressed and I could not get any preset buttons to work.

On my 2005, I had the same problem. I discovered after two days of troubleshooting that the problem was the passenger audio control on the right side beneath the little storage compartment. The push to talk button was pushed in. I discovered that it gets accidently pushed when removing the seat/passenger grab handles. Push the button off and everything works as it should.
