Question about Sirius Satellite Radio Sirius Starbase SC-FM1 Satellite Radio Receiver
I took my car to the dealership for issues with draw on battery causing car to not start after 3 days of non-use. They stated that the sirius unit was the cause of my drain. the unit is hooked up per instructions. Yellow wire to always on and red to ignition on ..properly grounded. The only display now on my once working radio is SIRIUS -- no indication of now signal or channels or anything--I tried resetting unit to factory settings - no help. I have double-checked all connections all seem good. When I use the menu of the unit to try and access the sirius id-- there is no ID --as in nothing comes up. I took it back to VW --they have no idea ... how can I resolve this?? Are there any ideas on what could cause this ? I have also checked all fuses in the system It is input to my radio through fm-modulator - again the unit appears ok ...but there is no indication of 'no signal' no channels, no id, the only display is SIRIUS on the screen I'm thinking the dealership fried my unit ...
How did the dealership resolve the battery draw issue. Did they rewire the Sirius for you. If so they could have wired the unit wrong. If you have a newer vehicle most of the wires in the dash are a very light gauge and most fuctions are controlled by, what's called a Body Control Module. Some of these wires are not a very good place to draw power from not onlt could it damage your Sirius Radio it could damage the electronics in your car as well. I suggest getting it looked at by a professional. Then go from there.

I had the same issue. This is what Sirius calls a "Frozen Unit". There is no bypass, unfortunately, and it must be returned.
I had mine for 3 days and it froze on the Sirius Logo screen when booting up. If you bought the unit from Sirius, you must contact their E-Commerce department. If bought from a retailer, take it back to the store.
