Question about Car Audio & Video

Open Question

My Sirius sat radio stopped playing. I have a 2006 Toyota Camry with the factory option Sirius, installed at the dealer. Stopped playing Sept. 10th, same day Sirius sent a signal to upgrade sound quality for some receivers. I called Sirius 4 times to have them try sending a signal, and they've had me try the power-boost procedure with the key and the car door. This radio is mounted under the passenger seat it says "Sirius connect" on top, and connects to the factory JBL with in-dash 6 cd, and cassette. The antenna is mounted to the inside of the windshield. When I select Sat, I see channel 185 and I can't tune to any other. All other audio functions are fine, just no sound and no tuning on Sat. I've tried diconnecting my neg battery cable, and have disconnected the Sirius connect box. I'm sure that Sirius downloading a software upgrade (if that's what they did) caused this, but they claim they won't pay for any repairs. Anyone experienced this before?

Be sure to check and make sure that your option output is selected to other, and not cd changer, and reset the unit.

Brought problem to my trusted auto mechanic and he found a simple disconnect/connect where to antenna cable comes into car under front right side under the glove box. It took literally 30 seconds to do.

SOURCE: Clarion SIRIUS Radio Receiver - Not Receiving All Subscribed Channels

My DX445 does the same thing. Here's my method for fixing it, it should work for any similar Clarion receiver:

1. If possible, make sure the radio is turned off when disconnecting the battery. If the radio turns itself on when the vehicle is restarted (for example after jump starting or battery disconnect for a few seconds only), turn the radio off.

2. Disconnect the battery by removing the negative battery cable from the battery. Leave it disconnected.

NOTE: Car batteries can be dangerous things. If you're unsure how to do this safely, get an experiences mechanic to help you.

3. Reset the radio. On my radio this is done by removing the faceplated, and pressing a tiny button for 30 seconds. Your radio may be different.

4. After waiting at least 20 minutes, reconnect the battery.

5. My radio displayes 'System Check -- Press Power'. After pressing the power button, the display reverts to the clock.

6. Turn on the radio. It should work fine on the broadcast bands.

7. Select 'Sirius'. The radio should display 'Updating'. Don't touch anything until the radio finishes its update phase. When it's done, it should tune to Sirius channel 1 and play as normal.

8. This should restore normal tuning. reset your presets and preferences.

What seems to happen is that the radio gets stuck in a 'Category Select' condition, but not all the categories will load, and manual tuning will not allow, say, Radio Classics to play when the radio is stuck in Pop mode.

On occasion (maybe 1 time out of 10), the radio hangs while doing the 'updating' in Sirius mode. If this happens, just shut off the radio and start over. I've never had to do the brute force reset more than twice since I stumbled on this method.

The sixth place is where the cd that was being played has to be put before it can take another cd to play. there should be a reset button some where im not sure where yet but I will find out and let you know shortly.

How to hook up the sirius stratus 5 radio in my 2008 rav4?


I have sirius installed in my 2008 RAV4 JBL system.
There is an adapter made by VAIS technologies http://www.vaistech.com/ that is called a soundlink. It comes with instructions for the connection. The Sirius radio is hidden in this installation, and is controlled by your JBL system. The antenna runs up the side of the windshield (hidden behind the plastic moulding) and mounts to the top right corner of the roof.

HOWEVER- you will not have the full funcionality of the Stratus 5 radio- which has more funtionality that the JBL system can control. Also, the Scrolling feature on the Stratus 5 screen does not work on the JBL display. . . you get the first 15 or so characters, with no scrolling.

I love having an integrated satelite radio in my car, but I do miss the better screen, and the pause feature I had on my sportster (in my old car). Good Luck.

Other than replacing or repairing the radio, not much can be done. The dealer can send your out to be repaired, but buying an aftermarket radio is usually a better option. You can get a better sounding, nicer looking radio for cheaper than repairing yours.
