Question about Kenwood SIR-KEN1 SIRIUS Radio Receiver

1 Answer

Sirius Problem Hello, We just hooked up my satellite radio in my car to my sirius ready head unit. Once we hooked it up we switched the AUX to sirius. It read that we had the box hooked to the head unit, but we can not change any channels. All we can do it turn the volume up and down. The head unit is stuck on "SR C000" Any ideas as to why this is happening? We have everything hooked up probably, it's just when we put the AUX to sirius nothing happens. Please help! Thanks so much! Jen

The sirius unit does not have any channels in the unit.
You need to refresh the radio (XM allows you to do it online, I dont know about sirius) and leave it powered on for about an hour for it to update the channel list.

Have a 2007 Jeep Commander. Sirius is intermittent and will flip over to FM frequently


First question is if you ever spilled a soft drink into the radio such that the AM/FM/SAT switch gets sticky?
2nd, do you have any way to pull-out the radio and borrow a magnetic-mount Sirius antenna to temporarily test and see if the antenna on the vehicle is bad?
If passing the first two tests, then it's likely the whole radio unit has to be replaced with a model from a similar year. Actually, the audio quality you get from an XM Onyx will be much better than the Sirius radio in the Chrysler vehicles, and you can just use the AUX input on the radio for playback.

I'm considering purchasing a Sirius Stiletto 2 Satellite Radio Receiver - just wondering if it can it be connected to my new Harmon Kardon 3600 avr or do I need to buy the Sirius connect SCH1 Home...


You will need to use the aux input from the top of the unit, or from the back of your home dock. If your receiver has a built in or add-on dock for the XM2GO line of radios, you will need to read here: http://www.digitalradiocentral.com/sirius-backstage/stiletto/108379-i-converted-xm2go-dock-stiletto.html

I have a sirius ready cd player installed in my jeep. I was wondering how I get sirius radio..when you scroll through Cd,radio, aux , there is sirius so i dont think i need another radio...but i dont know...


Looking at the user manual on page 13, you have to purchase and connect the XMD1000 module to in order to get the satellite radio service. If the module is installed, you'll get a display telling you to sign up for service.

No Sirius or Sat option when pressing Source button


Once everything is connected including antennae, there must be period of time for the head unit to recognize the SAT tuner (SC-C1 in this case). When I started up the car the next day the head unit automatically tuned itself to the Sirius preview channel.

Sirius


Basically, this just means that the head unit is designed to be ready to have a Sirius Satellite Radio system installed. Instead of having to cut and chop wiring and the like, it's ready to just be plugged into the head unit. No need for added expense of adapters and the like just to hook the system up to your car. :)

I had the same problem and there are a couple of reason why you may not be able to get into Sirius Mode.

  1. You have the wrong type of antenna (it must be a Sirius approved antenna)
  2. You may not have installed the tuner (most Sirius ready units need require that you have a tuner hooked up to your unit to get satellite reception. The tuners are specific to your unit, so make sure you but the correct one. This is quite sneaky on Sirius’ part…but good luck).

SIRIUS RADIO


that unit has aux inputs in the back they are rca level inputs.. your "stratus" has an audio output that is a 3.5 mm jack or standard headphone jack, with the appropriate patch cord, you can connect the two devices giving you the best possible sound quality. you would use the aux source on the head unit to listen to sirius. this feature may need to be turned on in the menu.

Alpine CDA-9855 won't recognize SIR-ALP1


I also had this problem. I had to go through the menu into the setup and then into tuner settings. There should be an option called tuner area. If you set it to area 1 it should start working. For some reason the sirius only works on area one. Hope that solces your problem

Sirius not working after taking to dealership for unrelated problem


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.
