FM Radio static

The clarion radio on my Goldwing - the AM band comes in clear, but the FM band is full of static and very low on volume. Is this a component issue or an antenna issue?

I think this is a component issue. I had a similar problem with my 81, so I just got a new one.

    Yeah I was able to pinpoint that the tuner is bad. Instead of paying a couple of hundred for a new tuner, I installed a marine radio in side pod. It has a wired remote that I tied to the center of my handlebars.... works just a good...

My volume on the xm radio band is noticeably lower than the regular fm band. Is there anyway to adjust the volume on the xm band tto make iy louder?


XM radio usually has lower volume than regular FM/AM bands. But there 'might' be an adjustment you can do with your radio, depending on your unit. Please indicate the brand and model of your radio so I can check.

Get a lot of static when try and turn volume down low.....in fact, sometimes it is hard to get sound when you turn the volume down....it is either full blast or silent.....lots of static like noise when...


This is an easy fix with a can of volume knob cleaner i think its called. You should be able to get it at radio shack. You just spray it into the volume knob and let it dry. The instructions are on the can.

Clarion ADX 5355 Addzest, fm freq won't go past 90, clock reset


This is a unit for the japanese market and they only use bands 79 to 90. You can install an FM band expander, available on Ebay for about £5, and get loads more stations. The expander is easy to fit if you can get to the back of the radio, it fits in the aerial lead and needs a 12 volt connection. Some people reckon they work well others don't rate them, probably worth a try at the price they are.

My radio on my82 honda goldwing dont have sound


There are several possibilities. First, if the clock and cassette door are affected, it is a low voltage feed issue.. bad connectors, corroded terminals, etc. This voltage feed is from the 5 amp fuse in the very bottom of the relay box to the right of the main fuse block (i.e. not in the main fuse box).. clean check this fuse... If the low volume is FM only, it is internal to the radio.. in this case, another symptom is that the search/seek feature never locks on a station.. Typically this is a problem with a component on the board.. only place I know that works on them is Sierra Electronics in Troy Ohio, but others probably exist..

Am radio not working


THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A RADIO PROBLEM. IT MAY BE WORTH YOUR TIME TO HAVE A DODGE DEALER CHECK THE RADIO TO SEE IF INDEED THE RADIO IS BAD, BUT THEN YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO REPLACE THE OEM RADIO WITH A NICE AFTERMARKET RADIO. THESE HAVE COME DOWN IN PRICE DRASTICALLY AND ARE PROBABLY CHEAPER THAN REPLACING THE OEM RADIO. WITH NO SIGNAL OR STATIC ON THE AM BAND SURE SOUNDS LIKE THE AM BAND IS DEAD.
