Question about Harley Davidson 426290 AM/FM Radio

1 Answer

2004 Harley UC Radio - no sound on Left side

Only sound I can get from left front and rear speakers is static unless I turn volume up really loud then I can hear garbled sound. Right speakers sound fine. Headset sounds fine as well - both right and left side.

Thought it was a loose connection but I have removed fairing, tank, ignition switch and speaker switch panel and have not found any loose connections. I'm beginning to think problem is within the radio rather than in the connectors. Radio is hard to bench test because it has large specialized modular plugs.

I suspect this radio outputs sound to each separate destination ( front speakers only, front and rear spkr combo, or earphones only) rather than having one audio output which is externally switched. If this is true then problem probably lies within the radio.

    Definately not antenna. As I said problem only affected left side speakers, not ephones or right side spkrs. Anyway, problem solved. For $135 I sent it off and exchanged it for a rebuilt one which works fine. Seemed like a lot till you learn HD radios go for about a grand.

Just installed new front (Pioneer TS G4643R) and rear (Kicker KS4100) speakers in my 1989 S-10. The left front and rear speakers work great but the right ones are not so good. At low volume they both have...


It sounds to me like your wiring is having problems. An easy way to tell would be to switch your speakers around. Take the ones on the left that you know work, and place them on the right side. If you have the same problem, then that tells you the wiring is having problems. Another problem could be that the speakers are wired out of phase. What that means is that the positive of the speaker is connected to the negative of the radio or amp, and that the negative is wired to the positive of the amp. Do you have an external amp? Try switching them around, and let me know how that works for you.

Blippy Sound


Sounds like the cords that are going into the PC/system have static. Remove the cords from the speakers and simply put your finger around the jacks to remove static. Push the cords and the jacks back in and switch on the speakers. Then twist the volume control, turning it up loud and then low, then loud and low again. That should cure the problem as it removes static that gets built up over time. Either that or your speakers could well be damaged.

Speaker problems


You've probably tried this, but when you do the channel test you can turn the volume up or down on whichever speaker is currently being tested (the static). Maybe your speakers have been adjusted somehow.
