2002 FLTR Radio Problem

I have a 2002 Harley Road Glide. The battery went dead over the winter. I jumped it at 40 amps, and the radio started acting up. It will turn on, but not play. I get a low frequency hum out of the speakers but no sound. I replaced the battery today, as it was bad, but still the same problem with the radio. Any ideas?

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

I have a 2002 electra glide classic and the clutch side speaker stopped working. I purchased some hog tunes with an amp and it still does not work, but can hear music come out very softly when i disconnect...

The radio's internal amp is blown. You are still using the internal amp to supply the output to the Hog Tunes amp, so just installing an aftermarket amp will not solve the problem. The radio will need to be repaired.

The cd player on my 06 street glide(harmon kardon) skips with minnimal road vibration

1-check condition of CD
2-be sure fairing brackets on bike are not broken
3-be sure riser bolts are not making contact with the bottom of the radio

if all of the above are OK, it's either a defective CD drive or bad SDRAM circuit (40 second buffer memory). The unit will need to be repaired. For repair options, contact Iron Cross Audio.

I have a 2003 harley road glide with stereo. I have the rear speakers on the detachable tour pack. Also on the tour pack is a 10 or 12 pin connector to what appears to be an amp? All of the wiring is...

Front speaker output comes from the amp, which you removed with the tour pack. You will need to wire the speakers directly to the radio speaker out wires to function without the amp
