Question about JBL MR-17 Sirius-Ready AM/FM/CD Receiver Controller

Open Question

Can't unlock a channel on JBL MR-17 Sirius Ready receiver

I accidentally locked the channel on my MR-17 by holding down the power button on the wired remote and a channel locked. I can tune to the channel manually and temporarily unlock it by entering in the passcode. I can't permanently unlock it though. So when tuning +/- it just gets skipped. The manual says to perm. unlock it hit shift and numeral 5 follwed by the password. This does NOT work. When hitting shift and then numeral 5 it tunes to the preset 5. Anyone have this problem?

SOURCE: I have a JBL MR-17.2 Sirius Ready stereo

If you have a Sirius satelite receiver box, the Sirius ID number will be on it ir the package it came in. The reciever is seperate form the MR-17.2 and is usually a JBL SIR2.5.

SOURCE: JBL MR-17.2 not recognizing Sirius satellite receiver.

I have the exact same issue. I have swapped with two identical MR17.2 radios and swapped out the sirius receiver. No change. I even bought a remote thinking I had to have a remote installed to get it to work...still no diff. Have you ever found a solution?

Lightning audio b150.2 as soon as +12 is hooked up blows 25 amp fuse and the c2 1000uf/35v capacitors blow???????


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

RCA CABLES


RCA cables are the best way to get the audio from your head unit to the amp. If your head unit doesn't have RCA outputs, you might be able to use the speaker outputs of the head unit to connect to the "high power" or "high level" inputs of the amp, if the amp has such inputs (check your manual).
