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

When radio on, passanger control will not turn down radio volume. Radio and CD come on full volume in passanger head set. When using the passanger switch to try and turn down the volume, it goes to mute and when released it returns to full volume, BUT it turns down the CB volume, even tho we are not in CB mode. Volume switch was tested on another bike and is good.

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.

How can i turn down my talk back its too loud


If it was an aftermarket install there may not have been a volume control put on it. Some times not even an on-off switch. To ad a volume control locate the jumper between the External and PA speaker. You can get a volume control at Radio Shack. Locate an area inside the rear panel that will allow the installing of the volume control. Cut the jumper wire and slide shrink tube on wires. Solder a length of wire on each end and solder the other ends to the volume control. You can use bell wire for this purpose or get wire at Radio Shack.

My truck was in the body shop for 3 month battery was unhooked they had to replace the air bag on the passanger now the radio works the cd player works but the sirius radio part of the radio doesnt what...


I know with satellite TV boxes like DirecTV and Dish Network, if they're "out of the stream" either unhooked from the satellite cable or unplugged for an extended term, they change the card codes a bit and their boxes need a "hit" from them. Basically DTV or Dish just sends down an update for your box / card. I think your satellite radio may have a similar issue. Call Sirius and explain your problem, they should be able to give your receiver a "hit" or an update and if that's the problem, you'll be up and working again.
