Question about Harley Davidson 426290 AM/FM Radio

1 Answer

I have an 03 Ultra Classic, with a 76146-04 cd cb am/fm radio. A few weeks ago I was working on my bike and had my tour pak off and the CB antenna wire contacted the positive battery post and caused a small spark like it just brushed it. After that the radio tones would not adjust that I could hear, you could see the indicators move for both treble and bass and the sound was scratchy like it was not tuned in very well, I mostly listen thru the headset it was bad, so I sent my unit to radio sound for an exchange, now the speakers sound good the tones will adjust but the headset sounds bad, I have 2 top of the line JVC headsets and a Harley headset all sound rough. All of the wires I can see look good, plug connections look good to me. Any ideas?

When you shorted the CB ant cable, you may have burnt the ground wire in the headset connector

1998 ultra classic am/fm/cb radio works good except cb it receives excellent but wont transmit


More than likely the "Final Power Output Transistor" has been fried due to a bad antenna or no antenna on the radio when someone tried to use it.

If you know how to solder you can find a replacement transistor at Digi-Key, Mouser or JDR-Micro Devices.

Its a fairly common problem and easy to fix. good luck

HOW TO CONNECT CB ANTENNA ON FLTK?


Are you attaching a hidden antenna or a rear fender one OR a tour pack one??

There should be a wire waiting under the seat and you will just connect there and if a tour pack installation and you do not have he wiring already in place under the tour pak internal covering you will need to get a harness extension kit. Under the front cowl you would just plug into the radio or cb module.

My 2010 Ultra Classic with 200 miles has cd skip. Store bought home made and mp3 all skip. Bike was ok for first 50 miles. Sometimes it switches to the weatherband. Plugged in ipod as alternate and...


Radio switching to weatherband is an indication that the weather alert function of the CB is turned on. If the weather channel transmits an alert signal, it will switch to weatherband. Speakers cutting out may be your VOX setting is too sensitive or the squelch setting on the CB is too sensitive. Lower both the VOX and squealch and see if that works. If the issue continues, contact Iron Cross Audio for more help. www.ironcrossaudio.com

2005 Ultra Classic CB transmits fine, does not receive at all . Replaced headset and cables, no luck.


Have someone check your SWR readings (using a SWR meter) on the antenna. This should give you some information on reception.

02 Ultra radio switches from cb to radio on its on


06 and newer CB modules have a weather alert feature that will switch to a radio station in case of an alert. The radio stations sometime transmit the signal by mistake. Check to see if your CB has this feature and if it does, turn it off

Cb radio


You may be generating a harmonic from the cb that is picked up by the radio. Check if different channels and if AM/FM act the same. Also if a cd unit, does playing a cd produce the same effect. If all stations and the cd player do the same thing, interference is most likely coming in on the radio power or ground leads. You can get an inline noise filter from radio shack: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103979&cp=2032058.2032230.2032273&parentPage=family
or you can make your own if you have an old computer power supply by using the toroids if you can get to the power supply lead. Make sure the radio housing is electrically connected to ground. The interference may also be coming in on the radio antenna. Try moving the cb antenna away from it if possible, or test by rotating the cb antenna to a horizontal position temporarily.
