I have a 2001 gl1800. My bike was unattended while some friends were visiting, their young child apparently got button happy. When I first turned the key on the audio was stuck on CB. Then the readout went blank. Now nothing, except for huge draw on the battery. The radio fuse is ok. When I turn the volume knob I can hear the "increment" beeps, even with the radio fuse pulled. Any ideas other than hog tying the kid?:22yikes:

Stuck buttons

Disconnect battery negative terminal

Make sure buttons are all free moving

If you have a passenger PTT check that

If you have a radio chrome trim they really can cause this

Push down each button use a can of air to blow out any debris

Well, good news, I guess it fixed itself overnight! We disconnected the negative battery cable (due to the draw on the battery) and left it sit overnight. When we hooked it back up this morning...Tada...everything is back to normal. Thanks for the input!

If that ever happens again, pull fuse #22, wait a couple of minutes and reinstall it. This can fix strange lockups sometimes.
