Question about Harley Davidson 426290 AM/FM Radio

1 Answer

HD 2001 UCI Radio

I have a 2001 HD Ultra Classic with a stock radio. On occation and now more frequently that before, the radio will go into a Seek Mode and activation of any control button will not stop the seeking. I also loose the ability to turn the radio off. After a period of time the radio may go back to a state of which all is operating normal. Turning the ignition switch off and on may but does not always clear the problem and if it does the problem may return very quickly. I am looking for advice as to what area is or could be failing. Is it likely that one of the control switches has failed or is it more likely that the malfunction is in the radio itself.

Re: HD 2001 UCI Radio

My bike did the same thing.sent the radio in for repair,they sent it back and said it had no problems,it worked great.after hrs of debate i decided to put it back in the bike,it still did not work,so started taking it out again,the wrench i was using touched the frame and the radio came on,every time it ground the radio to the frame.i put an external ground wire from the radio to the frame,its worked ever since.and i spent 300 bucks at hd,and fixed it for nothing myself

I have a 2009 Ultra Classic and I just bought a harley davidson intercom system which did not work out for me. However, since then my stereo cuts out real bad and I have poor reception. Never had this...

The 2009 Ultra should have had the intercom system as a stock install, no not to sure what you just bought.
