Question about Sirius Satellite Radio Sirius Starbase SC-FM1 Satellite Radio Receiver
I recently got a new Camry and was excited that I'd be able to plug my Sirius receiver directly into the auxilery input of my stereo instead of having to pick up the FM trasmitted signal. My problem is the "buzz" I hear in the background -it fluctuates as I give the car gas, much like the AM stations did in my 1990 Camaro... Help? Please?
Did you have the unit installed at a shop that would have hardwired the power source? It sounds like either your power wire to the sirius unit is connected to a noisy power source (which is why you are picking up the alternator whine), or you have a poor ground connection to the unit. If it was installed at a shop, take it back and have them move the power source to the same wires that the radio gets power from. If you are using your cigarette lighter for power, unfortunately it sounds like your outlet doesn't give you the best source for powering an audio component. You might try stopping by a car audio shop and ask how much it would cost to hardwire the sirius' power to the back of your radio.
