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?

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.

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?

I have a jbl mr17 radio and i want the clock to stay on


Clocks are usually wired into same circuit as your dome/interior lights, so they have constant power, regardless whether key is on or off.Should be able to find a wire to splice into around your fuse box.

You and I have satan living in our stereo


I agree. Those decks are JUNK how the hell did a great company like JBL ever allow their good name to be on those Korean junk. UNbelievable, and trust me they are not worth repairing.. You can find the exact unit at your local swap meet for $42.00 but with some name like DAWOOP, sorry friend but I too learned that lesson painfully.

I have looked at several sites and none say that they do so I assume they don't.Also if a player does it normally says on the front.

To get your Sirius ID number from you MR-17 JBL stereo, select the Mode button until it displays "Sirius". Then push and hold the Mode button for a couple seconds and it will chirp and display 3 blank spaces. Enter three zeros, "000" in these 3 spaces. The Zero is the loud button labeled "LD". When you do that, it will display your Sirius ID number. :)

Hi,

Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? The reset button is at the panel at the back of the faceplate, bottom left side. Of course doing so will also erase all presets and user settings & configurations.

Additionally, pls verify that the multiple contacts pins are clean, free of corrosion and makes a positive contact with its mate at the rear of the faceplate. If the unit is used in a salty environment, it may be necessary to manually scrape of whatever blue green build up develops between the connector pins and the plastic insulator. You can try using an old toothbrush and WD40.

Further to check are:
1. the red, yellow and black wire are tightly connected where they are supposed to be connected. If the unit is used onboard, it might be to your advantage to likewise check the grounding system;
2. one of the rear connector is for a remote, pls likewise check that none of the pins are shorting and no presence of any corrosion.

If problem persists, it may be necessary to seek the services of a qualified professional as this involves opening the unit up and tracing the circuitry of the logic/controller circuit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
