If it worked before, and you could tune SSB, the BFO switch is probably broken.

Message says check reception. radio is in same location as always

This message means that the radio didn't receive the weekly check-in or test signal from the station it's tuned to, sometimes the station will fail to send it. To clear this message, simply turn the switch on the side of the radio off for a few seconds, then turn it back on.

Radio can only lock on one station

There are no known issues with the antenna connectors or cable.
Visually inspect the cable and ends to be sure nothing came loose.

Has there been anything added to the electronic system...i.e. HID headlights, amps, ect.

Call Iron cross Audio for more help.

What is the knob on the back used for?

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this. Thank you for choosing FixYa to answer your question. You want to know what the knob on the back is used for? I believe that's the weather band fine tuning knob. This is used for switching between weather radio frequency channels (e.g. 162.400 MHz or 162.550 MHz). Use this to switch to a weather channel that is in your listening area. I hope this answers your question and thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for all of your problems. Come back and visit our site again soon. Have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this.

No am radio but fm works fine

I don't know why you need AM, but that's not the issue.
If you have FM and HEAR it ok, then everything is fine. You've hooked it up right.
Not being able to find AM, is in the new radio.
You need to look to see how to tune to AM.
Maybe the paperwork that came with it!

Panasonic RF-B65 short wave radio won't tune to frequency when turned on, just flashes 'E' and turns off automatically. Any suggestions ?

RF-B65 has a known issue with the power connector on side. It gets resistive from not being used. If you apply 6 vdc and it works, its most likely the batteries or the power connector. If both produce a "E" its PLL doesnt lock. Power plug most likely issue. Another issue is the tuning knob. It skips or jumps irratically. The up/down frequency changes are by a cube 1/2 inch square contactor. Its not optical. Just simple mechanical contactor. Remove the small cube from chassis and spray liquid gold. It will clean wire contactor and lubricate internals. You cannot buy the cube. Cleaning it always works for me. RF-B65 radio is a sure winner. Small, reliable and very sensitive. Has SSB also. eter

My dealer recently replaced the radio on my 06 FLHTCi. It works ok, but will only tune a very few FM stations--only those here in town. Is there a tuning adjustment on the radio??

there is no external adjustment, only internal alignments. check to be sure the antenna cable was not damaged during removal of the original unit. Feel free to contact us at Iron Cross Audio (

Grundig S350 digital display

The radio is analog with a digital display. Mine displays off all the time, you can try turning the other switches on it just slightly. Just move them a tiny amount. This seems to correct my problems. Heat is also another factor with these things, they drift all over the place.
