2006 Harley Road Glide

The display on my Harmon Kardon Radio on my 2006 Harley Road Glide quit working after I washed it. It came on initially and then went out right away and hasn't been on since. I still have the backlight. Also the channel up button on my handle bars went out at the same time. Any suggestions, PLEASE let me know. Any and all are welcome. Thanks in advance!!!

    Hey, I parked my 2006 FLHTCU on a humid morning and the display was fine. After 8 hours of work, no display. I can't figure out what I did wrong. Did I push too hard on the display when I turned it on?? Well, I will be tearing this unit apart to see if I can find the problem this weekend and I will let you know the out come is. Anyone know the cost of the front panel/keyboard/display unit?

    I have the Same Problem, 2006 FLTRI, Display would come and go after washing bike. I tried to avoid getting the unit wet in subsequent washes, but the display finally quit, the back light still glows. I am looking for a service center to send it to if there is nothing obvious that I can solve; any Ideas.

How to activate my navigation on the Harman Kardon radio

Not all Harmon Kardon radios have navigation. Have your dealership hook the bike up to Digital Technician to check. This is also how radio upgrades are installed.
