Yesterday's Ride was Today's Repair
Well, it had been about a week since I was able to take a much needed wind therapy ride.
So last night around 6:30 or so I threw on my leather and got My Glide ready for a little jaunt.
I checked the air pressure with the FOBO, all the lights to make sure they're all working properly, put some fuel additive in as I was going to stop and fill up at my favorite Sunoco before heading out.
I start off, tunes playing nicely and head to The Sunoco only to find it's closed.
Decisions, is this the way My Ride is going to go, I hope not.
I head out up the road to find a safe place to stop and light My Cigar.
Once I am all ready I figure a few miles up the road and I'll hit the Shell station.
I stop and fuel up then jump on the highway to get some much needed wind therapy.
I'm cruising along jamming to The Tunes playing so well when all of a sudden I can't lower the volume.
I continue on for quite a while because at 65 - 70 high volume isn't a problem.
As I get to the exit I want I decided to turn off the headunit and see if that helps.
It did. I jump back on the highway for the ride home and wouldn't you know it, it happens again.
I push the left thumb control down to lower the volume and it raises it.
I push the right thumb control to change the source and it stops playing.
I decided to turn the headunit off and back on and just let play what was playing.
When I finally returned home I was baffled at the way the thumb controls were working.
I figured I had a problem with the aftermarket thumb control unit which I had just replaced.
Speed forward to this morning, I jump on the good old Interwebs and start searching.
Nada!!! Nothing, Never happened to anyone else? Oh boy here we go!
I decide to go check My Glide and it's still going wacky. I manually change everything from USB to Auxiliary to XM and it all does the same things, crazy.
So I decide to make some notes to get ready to contact the aftermarket company for some much needed assistance.
I start to head inside when it hits me, pull the 40 Amp Main Fuse and reset everything.
Wow, what a brainstorm. I loosen the left saddle bag remove the side cover and pull the fuse.
I turn the ignition on, nothing, good. I return the fuse, turn the ignition on again and lo and behold everything is working properly.
I couldn't believe it. I don't know what caused the issues because I keep My Glide connected to a Battery Tender.
I'm just glad I did what I did before I contacted anyone and made a fool of myself.
Word to self, "When You Head Out For a Ride and The Unexpected Happens (Closed Sunoco) Go Home (LMAO!!!)".
Thanks for listening to "My Rant!"
