Installed a Honda cb into my new 2013 today. The cb was out of my old '08 so I had to use one of the adaptor cords. Everything was pretty straight forward and as far as I know the plugs on the radio only fit back one way and the cb plugs into the top center of the radio. I did forget and and turn it on for a few seconds before the ground was connected but the antenna was plugged in. All I get on the dash is "CB ERROR".

Tried to clean out the old 13 pin. Didn't have any contact cleaner but used a silicone spray. The ground strap is hooked up. Wondering what else might give this message? I did have some trouble disconnecting the 13 pin from the old bike. wonder if I damaged one of the 13 wires.

Had the same thing happen to me, but it cleared on it's own (don't know why). However, when I was searching for solutions, a rider on another forum said to disconnect the battery's ground cable, wait 10 minutes, then reconnect it. Easy to try it. Hope it works for you.

"10-4 good buddy" (How'd you like the way I worked cb language into a cb related post). I am sending mine to Larry M today. Just noticed you are over at the villiages. You ride with the Prowlers any?
