2006 ultra radio has no sound

Radio has power but no sound, can't be controlled by handlebar switches or radio buttons. Was riding one day, volume went to full, pulled bike over, shut bike off, turned back on, and that's where I'm at today. I have a radio that lights up with no sound or control.

    It was sold to me by Hogties. Brain of Hogties sold me junk and rusted parts and did not send all the parts I payed for, so beware of this swindler

My radio will not accept any input from the handlebar mounted switches......not on the volume treble or bass or the other side with band. In addition i cannot turn off the unit, it will not accept any...


If there is no audio, the radio is locked on an fm station with preset 1 highlighted, and no control from the handlebar or face, the TMS 320 processor is locked. The radio cannot be repaired. try to get your HD dealer to exchange it.

Harmon/Karden 2006 Radio/CB/CD Passanger control does not work


The passenger controls on the rear speakers are pretty easy to diagnose.  The wire for Volume up is Pink/white, the volume down is gray/white.  If the Pink/white wire is shorted to ground somewhere, then as soon as you turn on the radio, it will be like having the volume selector pushed up, and it makes sense how you describe it goes to mute and then returns to full volume as soon as you let go.   You don't say what model it is (I doubt it's a Road Glide, gotta be an Ultra), so it's not too hard to get at.  Pull the outer fairing and look on the back of the HK Radio.  There are 2 big connectors, when looking from the front you want the connector on the right.  Pin 23 is down volume, pin 34 is up volume for the rear controls ONLY.  So I would check the continuity to ground at pin 34 first, in other words pull the connector off the back of the radio, take a test lead and hook one end to +12v. Touch the tip to any grounded metal and it should light.  Now touch the tip to pin 34 on the harness side of the connector.  If the test light lights up, you have a short to ground on the pink/white wire.  Now go to the right rear speaker on the tour-pak and disconnect the 6 pin connector and try the test again.  The pink/white goes from pin 34 on the radio and runs through the harness to the passenger controls and nowhere else.  It shouldn't be grounded anywhere.  Let me know what you find out.

Volume can not be increased low static sound


No / intermittent audio is caused by vibration damage to the audio circuit. Unit needs to be put under a microscope and inspected for micro cracks in the solder joints of the audio circuit components.

Volume control is adjusted by remote switch on handle bar. You can contact HD for a wiring harness schematic
