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.

The cd player on my 06 street glide(harmon kardon) skips with minnimal road vibration

1-check condition of CD
2-be sure fairing brackets on bike are not broken
3-be sure riser bolts are not making contact with the bottom of the radio

if all of the above are OK, it's either a defective CD drive or bad SDRAM circuit (40 second buffer memory). The unit will need to be repaired. For repair options, contact Iron Cross Audio.

Radio working just fine But no sound coming from speakers

if the radio still has power the audio amplifier ic in your radio has failed.
take your radio to an electronics repair shop or, replace the radio; this not something you can fix unless you know how to use an oscilloscope.

Installing a Harmon Kardon on a 03 Ultra

The 23 pin main connector is a direct plug in from the 03 bike to the HK unit. The only issue would be if the original 03 was using the accessory connector as well. The accessory connector on the 03 is another 23 pin. It's a 35 pin on the HK. For more info, or to discuss this further, contact Iron Cross Audio (
