I had the exact same problem with Sirius radios. I bought two Kenwood DTS-7000S receivers and both were sent back for warranty. Of the two, they only fixed one but by the time I figured out the other was bad, it was out of warranty. Kenwood, along with the repair community state they do fix such units, they toss them out. The thing that gets hot hot hot is the part that receives the Sirius antenna inside your unit. If you're like me and have nothing to lose then I recommend doing some cutting with a dremel and adding a small computer fan. It just takes a light breeze to keep that part cool enough (but it does take some sort of breeze, convection is out). For a home unit, find an old A/C power supply and match it to an old computer fan of equal or less voltage. For car, find a fan that uses 12 volts or less. It's an easy fix, really!

First place to check is the thermostat. It's like a float that allows coolant to pass from the hoses through the block. If it gets stuck, you'll lose heat. Easy to replace, and inexpensive.

I inherited a disfunctional SIRPNP2. The signal strength meter in the lower left corner always displays an "x". Anyone have an idea? Thanks


A couple of things to try. First, try pulling out the anntenna from the back just slightly. My SIRPNP2 gets a better connection that way. Also, check to make sure that your annenna isn't bad. If you have a friend that has Sirius, connect their anntenna to your unit. If it works, replace your anntenna.

Check your copper pin cylinder on the back of the receiver that goes into the cradle. The metal cylinder surrounding the copper pin can shave off or crack, causing these problems. If you can put your hands on another unit, you can replace this area with the parts unit. Unscrew the two screws holding the unit together and then slowly pry the unit apart, inserting a very thin blade and moving it slowly around the frame. Once inside, you will see screws holding down the area with the copper pins. You can remove this and put it in your receiver.

If you can put your hands on another unit for parts, you can open it and replace your damaged pin with one from the unit for parts. It takes a little time and care but you can do it.

Call Audiovox support. After waiting an hour I was told the unit (pnp2) was faulty and I was to call customer service to arrange a replacement. Mine is on the way to NY.
