I have a cvo 2012 ultra classic with a radio problem of when

Customer Question

I have a cvo 2012 ultra classic with a radio problem of when driving the radio cuts in and out but the radio never loses lumination. I have this bike looked at over 12 times at my local dealer but they can never fix it. I have tried to explain the problem to them but they seem to have no trouble shooting capabilities. I think that the amp is drauling to many amps causing the amp to cut out I also think they should try heavier wiring but the wont. I feel that i am being done wrong by harley. this is a $54k motorcycle and should be fixed by harley whom dosnt seem to care. can you offer any suggestions

assuming it is not a wiring problem (after having a dealership look it over) it sounds like a faulty amp in the radio.

larger gauge wiring would have no affect. it is probably a heat related fault.

if you want it fixed you should replace the radio.

if you are open to aftermarket radios, there are several option on-line when searching "replacement harley stereos"
