NO SOUND on the stereo Harman Kardon (STREET GLIDE 06)

Everything appers to be normal on my stereo except that it does not emit any sound!

The volume ups and downs as well as other functions (treble, bass, etc), apper on the dial responding to the buttons.

Nonetheless, the speakers dont sound. I already removed the fairing to disconect and reconect the wires from the sterero and from speakers.

Thanks for any help!

mine too

same problem with mine (also an 06) turn radio off and hold two softkeys(any buttons) while turning it back on. see if it shows a diagnostic code mine gets one that says FL speaker open speakers seem fine, once in a while i can try it and it works great. dealer says 275 to have crap radio fixed. check out hogtunez or biketronics. 200$ for kit plus whatever you want to spend on radio then if radio craps out complete new replacement is 125$ +-. I'm ready to replace mine sometime soon let me know if you learn anything (dealer said to ckeck grounds under seat, one is for radio, all were fine )

Do you have a speaker switch located near the aux switch on the fairing? Both have a relationship with your radio. If the speaker switch is toggled the wrong way, it will cut out volume. Try both!

08' FLHX N WV wants to know where he is and how he got here
Speaker Open means the voice coil of the speaker cone has a break in it that will cause the speaker not to work. The best way to determin if the speakers are bad is to find an other speaker (even one from a home system will work) and hook it up temparialy to the HD Radio and see if it works. Or take a small batt. like a AA or 9V and hook the + and - to the speaker it should make the cone move out or in and make a poping sound. The stock HD speakers are junk my voice coil's broke with in the first year of use.

anyone on here able to fix the problem after having the FL Speaker open problem? My bike just did it to me this week, I also have a 06 Street Glide. I had just ordered new hogtunes speakers right before this happened so I hope replacing the speakers fixes this problem. Or did something else have to be done to fix it?

Suedekustom wants to know Dino or Syn?
I am experiencing same problem on 06SG. Normally turning unit off then back on resolves the problem. Unit may play fine for 2 days or 2 minutes and the problem is getting tiresome. Considering changing to aftermarket unit but I have added the xm and hate to see that money go to waste - unless it can be used with an aftermarket unit???

06, 07, and early 08 models had weak fairing brackets that would vibrate way too much, an on occasion break. This vibration, especially if they are or were broken, is way too much for any radio to handle. In mid 08 there were new fairing brackets introduced that went a long way to eliminating this issue. Running an aftermarket unit under these conditions will result in another radio failure.

Iron Cross Audio can help with the diagnosis to determine if it may be vibration damage to the audio circuit. As part of the repair, an anti-vibration mod is installed to the circuit to prevent reoccurrance. .

Iron Cross Audio is the way to go... And yes, the fairing brackets are crap, I replaced both of mine.

Bedford Biker wants to know Dino or Syn?
I have an 08 Ultra. HK radio failed 3 times. Once repaired by Iron Cross. I gave up on HK. Installed Sony Marine from biketronics with Hog Tunes speakers. Sony sounds better and Hog Tunes Ultra Amp not needed. No longer have CB or intercom. Never used and tunes are needed for cross country road trips. I will never use Harley HK on this bike or future bikes. The Sony has an internal iPod. Sony very easy to install and control with Ultra handle controls. Great customer support from Biketronics.

sasha07hd wants to know Dino or Syn?
That's what I was trying to confirm. Has Dr. V-Twin install JML 7-1/4 speakers and AMP on 07 StreetGlide. Sounded pretty good. But after a ride, when you turn the bike on you have no sound and have to turn the stereo and bike off then, start again to get it to work. They told me that due to the brackets design, the soldering on the circuit board gets damaged and I need to send the unit back to Harley to get the head unit re-soldered.
Has anyone else been told this?

When I got mine back from Iron Cross, they went over everything with me. The issue is not a bad solder joint, but damage to the main board caused by the vibration issues. When the HK went, I originally replaced it with a Sony marine unit. Sony crapped out in a few months (rain)...so much for marine grade. HK has been running fine for over 2 years after the ICA repair.

HD doesn't repair your HK; they'll sell you a refurb unit.

Call Tony at Iron Cross Audio; they have a superb reputation for quality work and customer service. They did some work on my HK a couple of years ago, and more recently added front and rear pre-amp outputs--ICA is the best.

Wildbill05 wants to know Dino or Syn?
Had the same problem on my '09 Ultra, still under extended warranty. The unit failed on a trip, I'd just had a Roadtech 665 Zumo installed before the trip. I lost all audio, even voice prompts from the Zumo, figured out I could rock the speaker position switch and get sound back for 2 days or 2 min. The dealer checked it out when I got back, told me it was the radio itself, and would be replaced under warranty....for the $50 deductible. Well replaced, and no more problems....I guess the HK's are known for this failure at about 21/2 years...right after the factory warranty expires....Sorry...WildBill
