2002 harley davidson am-fm cassette radio

The battery on my electra-glide went dead this winter, from sitting. Jumped with a charger, at 40 amps.Now every function on the radio is working, but no sound comes out of the speakers, except for a low static sound. Is this a small repair bill or should I find a new radio? I am experiencing exactly the same problem. Battery went bad over the winter. Jumped it at 40 amps and get the speakers to hum but no radio. I replaced the battery, as it was bad, but still the hum and no sound. Any ideas? DE in Iowa

First I would try driving it a few times to see if the battery will charge completely up and the problem will go away, if it doesn't, then you may just have something fried from starting it. You may also try hooking a different battery to it. If anything, take it to an electronics store and have them check it over if none of the above work and they will be able to narrow it down well enough for you. I know that this has happened on multiple bikes so I will see if I can see anything else that might have fixed this problem. Let me know if you have any other questions

    It seems that the high amps fried the radio most likely or if you are lucky just one internal component. Look for a blown capacitor to start with and see what you find. Next time I recommend a low slow charge instead of jumping the bike. If a capacitor is blown, this will be pretty cheap, so take a look.

    When charging, you should charge at 8-10 amps and the volts are what you need to start the bike.

    Let me know of any further questions that you may have

    Its a very simple issue all you need to do is that open the set and replace the battery with a rechargeable capability, it will be resolved,.

2002 FLTR Radio Problem


You fried the circuitry in the radio, you can't jump the battery at so many amps, it needs to be gradually charged up if the radio is attached. You need to take the radio to an electronics store to see if they can salvage it and replace the fried board, if they can't, then you need a new radio. This is a common problem that many people have experienced so don't feel bad since you aren't the first to do it.

I'm sorry that I am the bearer of bad news, but if you have any further questions, please let me know

What are the factory stereo specs for a 2007 electra glide classic?


Radio is a 4 channel 22 watts per channel 2 ohm stable unit. There are no pre-amp outputs, so be sure whatever amp you're using accepts high level inputs, or have pre-amps installed by Iron Cross Audio. When adding the amp, be sure the speakers used are impedance matched to the amp, not the radio.

Battery went dead on 2007 ultra glide and now radio doesn't work. Not the fuse.


If it's the original battery, replace it, and check the charging system to make sure it's charging properly.
