Audio system dead
« on: June 26, 2014, 06:01:43 pm »
I have a new 2014 triumph trophy se.  Heated grips and seat.  I had the fun of taking it through the Rocky Mountains in canada (jasper and banff) and when I was in jasper I decided to subscribe to the Sirius radio.  No sooner did I hang up and the entire audio system when stone cold dead.  It's in the dealer right now so I'm anxious to see what they find.  Interestingly enough since I bought it in may I have smelled a burning rubber smell.  They initially told me that's normal for initial break in, however it's still there 1800 km later.  I wonder it the two are related ?

I had my radio quit once. Pulled the fuse, let the audio system reset and no problem after that.

Please ask the dealer to look at the audio module.  I also have a 2014 and the audio module was the cause of my grief.  (Search my posts and you will see what I mean.)  :084:

Could be a bad battery, seems like low voltage messes up everything, my battery (replaced under warrenty) was not holding a proper charge, had enough voltage to start bike, but radio could not be turned on. Also, heated seat icon would come on for a few seconds, i do not have a heated seat, and engine light would come on. A new battery fixed all problems, this is third battery, seems something is draining battery.......we shall see

William, you definitely need to take your bike into the dealer about the radio. If the bike had enough amperage to start the bike, then it definitely had enough to run the radio especially once you get the bike running. The alternator puts out plenty of amperage for the radio and to charge the battery plus run some electrical accessories. Sounds like you have one of the bad audio modules and it will constantly drain your battery.
