2002 FLTR Radio Problem

My battery on my 2002 Harley Davidson Road Glide went dead over the winter. I jump started it at 40 amps and when it started the radio/cassette player does not work and the speakers have a hum in them. I replaced the battery with a new one, but the radio still only turns on and lights up but it will not play, and still the hum in the speakers. Any suggestions?

    I did the same thing and got the same result,a hum in my speakers. What was the cure? Mine is a 2000 road glide.

Sounds like you may have blown one of the radio fuses. Don't know about that radio but usually there is one fuse red wire for the key hot and one fuse for the radio memory yellow wire and one of em is blown. I don't know if there are security codes for those radios or not if both of the fuses are good. Dont know if it will be a main radio fuse just in the main fusebox or block or if there is another or other fused in the fairing.

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.
