Re: Sound System on but no CD or radio sound
John...Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you (I cannot say Thank You enough). I disconnected the battery (negative brown and black wires) for 30 mins. When I went to reconnect the negative wire, there were sparks that happened when I touched the wire to the negative battery lead (hopefully I haven't done anything back to the battery. Anyway, I turned it on and rolled the throtlle fully and closed 3 times and then turned on the the radio. I must admit the "BMW" words didn't come on immediately and my heart sank a bit...... and the the magic "BMW" words can on and then the MUSIC..... I love riding again!!!! It really was NO FUN riding without music (I really don't know how these non-LT/RT riders do it without music). Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.... I could go on and on.
Carl, the battery's original 2003 with the bike. Now that you mention it's a battery problem, I do remember leaving it on parking lights some days back for about 6 hrs I think. The bike started pretty much straight away, so I didn't think much of it, but that might have been what pushed the radio 'over the edge'.
Thanks again. This forum is the BEST! Be blessed!
