Hi all, My radio on my 1988 1500 goldwing has a problem that I have never here of,

when I turn on the radio, all the pre-set's have went back to factory setting's.

it doesn't do it all the time but it does do it more often than not, does the radio have a back-up battery that might be dead? or mabie a loose wire, the radio never looses

it's channel,s while it's runnung,feed back would be apprecated, krall2, (Jerry) :cooldj:

If its anything like the 1200 . RUll the radio out and look oat the contacts. They may be tarnsihed and/or bent away. Try to pry them close and clean them up.

I would imagine that the 1 amp constant hot wire has blown a fuse. Radio always has to have power to save the radio stations. Just like any vehicle that the battery is removed or goes dead; it forgets the time and preset stations.

There is a fuse labeled backup. Check that one.

it doesn't lose the time ever, clock always work's, and some time's it keep's the preset's but most of the time it does lose the presets on the radio

There are 2 fuse blocks on the L side of your bike (sitting on it), the one for the radio memory is in the rear block, you'll have to at least loosen the side bag to get to it. I think it's a 5A at the bottom of the row. :waving:
