Question Radio question

Hey guys, I bought a 2002 LTE a couple of months ago and am having difficulty operating the radio. I cannot seem to locate the right button to switch from external speakers to the speaker headset I installed from J&M. I have tried every button including speaker on/off and adjusting the speaker button on the handlebar. I have read the accessory manual for the radio and cannot figure out the darn thing.

I have been able to have the music come out the speakers and also had it running through the headset speakers with intercom use between my wife and I. However, this morning I could not get the music to play through the external speakers or headset on my way to work. I hope their is not something wrong with the radio and just a dumb operator.

Any advice/input would be much appreciated.

Assuming you have the same com system I do the button you're looking for is on the left side inside the "stingray" cover oddments box

comm system 1

I just went through a Comm system transformation! I have a 2000 LT with the Old Comm system 1.. ( only on know and no button to turn off the external speakers) I purchased a NEW Comm system that supports a CB and Nav system as well as an external speaker shut off button. It works great..It was not cheap.. I have seen them for @ $920.00 plus shipping - but in the end my CB works great,the Nav system feeds into the sound system ( Helmet only) and I can shut off the external speaker.. Did the work my shelf to save some money... Love it..
