Radio Question...Searched Hall of Wisdom
My friend has an 01 LT, radio began to malfunction when he changed a station in the memory.
Normally he (and I) switch off bike to first position to left, not locked. If bike is turned off and power switch on radio is used radio turns off, but when turned back on radio will turn on. When you use any other switch on stingray, on handlebar, or passenger controls radio turns off. You are unable to change stations, volume or use cd player, radio simply turns off with any button EXCEPT the on/off button.
But, if the radio is on and the bike is then turned off to the lock position, when the bike is switched back on the radio works normally, all switches, all functions. If you then turn radio off with on/off switch on stingray, radio reverts back to the possessed version, not able to change any function, just on.
We tore bike down to (successfully) fix gas level indicator tube and took radio apart and put dielectric grease on and cleaned all connections. Radio sounds fine, works great if you use the magic combination.
