Is this normal for the radio to do this??

All,


As I start the bike up, the radio boots up. So far so good. Lets say that I had it last on a radio station. The station will begin playing a song or commercial. I cannot change the station nor the volume. I have to toggle between FM, AM, CD and WB to get it to "see" the hand controls. Is this normal? I let it sit for a few seconds as well - no luck. Do I need to wait a little longer maybe?

Maybe I should reframe the wording...
Usually what your on is highlighted? Well, nothing is. I just got home and tried again. Volume moves and I can change what it's on (AM, FM, CD, FW). I can't change radio stations. Hand controls or hitting the buttons. See pic. ImageUploadedByMO Free1398897136.018761.jpg

So... Take it to the stealership or live with it? Suggestions? I bought it used and the stealership I bought it at is too far away to take it too.

Mine does that too, I have to wait 20-30 seconds before any of the controls work. I thought it was common because it's done it since day one.let me know if you find out its a problem

Nows your chance to upgrade to an aftermarket head unit with some nice speakers and get rid of the stock POS
