Question about Sirius Satellite Radio Sirius SIR-ALP1 Satellite Radio Receiver
When the weather gets cold I get a "antenna fail" message on my factory Mazda CX-7 radio for satellite signals only. The AM/FM works fine. After about 10 minutes or so the satellite radio signal comes in and is good for the rest of the day even if I park it in the cold for hours. The antenna has been replaced twice. The antenna splitter is the original. The Sirius receiver itself is mounted on the rear inside fender well . The antenna is a rear roof mount. In the summer it works fine even inside a garage. Could it be the splitter? On this radio its a small box with the antenna wire plugged in on one side and two short plugs on the other side plugged in to the radio. It's seem unlikely that a solid state radio would have to warm up to get a signal. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you
Same problem on my CX-7. I've had antenna replaced one so far. It takes about 30 minutes in the cold (usually on at night on my commute home) to get signal. I agree, during the summer months, everything works fine.
