Victory CB radio problem
Installed the factory CB/ICOM radio system on my 2012 XCT a few weeks ago. ICOM works well, my wife and I enjoy having the intercom and having stock radio playing in headsets. I do not have anybody with a CB to talk to, so I haven't tried talking to anyone. We do hear other people taking on Ch 19 frequently.
The few times I pressed PTT I noticed radio display would go blank and return once I pressed any radio button, such as volume. While riding hm from work yesterday the CB was quite so I held down PTT for a minute or more. Screen went blank, other than Ch 19 and icon being displayed, and Ch 19 was highlighted to show it was transmitting. Once released PTT, display never did reset. I could turn radio volume up and down, hold minus down and turn radio on/off, press ICOM and COM buttons to turn them on and off. Everything worked except display continued to only show ICOM and CB with CB highlighted. No other information was displayed, and it remained this way for 20 minutes until I got home and cycled ignition key. ICOM and CB remained in display even when I had turned them off. Any ideas what is wrong the my system and why the screen is locking up?
I will plug in my wife's helmet tonight to see if PTT on passenger helmet screws up display.
