My 07 road glide has a problem with the volume. It was shooting up to full blast at random times now it does it less but I can't turn the volume up just down. I have the following codes...

B2008 Handlebar switch shorted low
B2009 Handlebar switch stuck or open

What would your next step be? I just got this bike it does have chrome switched installed.

I think I figured it out. After visiting the local dealership the service dept told me I needed a new audio switch. They didn't have one in stock so I came home. I started to take the controls apart and found that the wires were pinched against the bars. I realigned the wires with the dimple and all appears to be good now. I just bought this bike last week sol I was unsure what had been done to it in the past.

What exactly does this error code mean:

B2008 Handlebar switch shorted low

Does it mean my low beam switch has shorted out??????

Post your individual problems as new threads. You'll get more views than posting replies in this sticky thread, and more likely to get an answer to your questions.

Find it a lot easier to pull the HK out and sell it on Ebay. 800-1000 bucks. Spend that money at biketronics and your problems are gone, and you get a way better stereo in the end. Just my opinion

Anyway to diagnose a radio on a 2000 FLHTC? I had the radio and amp and volume control on the hadle bars replaced in 08 because of a short in the system. It was replaced unde extended warranty thru the dealer. It was a direct OEM replacement supposedly but I think it was actually a refurbished radio and amp. Anyway the new symptoms are that the front and back left sid espeaker is cutting off and on I get a lot of satic when hitting bumps in road. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks,
