Question about Sirius HONSC1 Interface for Honda/Acura

6 Answers

Low volume from my Sirius radio

I had a SCC1 (Sirius connect vehicle turner) and a HonSC1 professional installed into my XM ready 2007 Honda Odyssey. The volume is very low-it can not be heard turned up to full volume with the heater fan running. I already put in the code 162534 and it increased the volume very slightly. I tried to the code in again but now the channel just changes. I appreciate any help on this matter. My installer is also stumped.

Particularly in some Toyota/Lexus/Scion vehicles, you may

need to enter the toggle code to raise the level to HIGH so

the satellite radio level matches the FM/CD levels more

closely. Here’s how:

1. Turn stock audio system on

2. Switch to SAT operation

3. Rapidly enter using the stock radio preset buttons

the following code: “162534”

4. The audio level will toggle to the new setting, which

will be immediately audible if the code was both

promptly and correctly entered

5. If no audible change, enter the code again

6. Check the audio level on similar channel from

Sirius vs. FM, then try CD

Note that some variation in audio levels exist between dif -

ferent sources. You may nd that FM is louder when compared

to CD or satellite radio or vice versa and this by as

much as several dB. This is normal in our experience and

should not be a concern. Leave the audio level toggled to

the setting that matches the other sources most closely. If

you hear distortion on the SAT source even when the stock

radio is playing at low volume, you may need to toggle the

audio level to LOW.

The default settings on the interfaces as shipped are as

follows:

TOYSC1: default setting = LOW

HONSC1: default setting = HIGH

The rst time you toggle the TOYSC1, it should go to HIGH.

The rst time you toggle the HONSC1, it should go to LOW.

Conrm the change by listening.



If your vehicle does not come equipped with XM radio, it must meet one of the following requirements:

  1. CD only headunits, CD/Cassette headunits, and 6-CD Changer Headunits must have a "SAT" or "XM" button.
  2. The headunit must have a monitor or a touch screen monitor.

Unfortunately, there is not much more you can do about it. It is a known problem with the hon-SC1. If it is set to HI - thats the loudest it will get, and there is no other option.

    For all my customers, I suggest a standalone reciever...

    Mainly because of adaptability issues, but also because of the following...


    1. FM Modulation install is quicker and cheaper (parts & labor).

    2. A standalone reciever can be moved car to car (or home) without the re-activation fee of $75.

    3. Less compatibility issues (like the one you are experiencing).

    4. Can be installed in any vehicle directly with an AUX port

    It may SEEM more convenient to adapt to a factory installed system, however the disadvantages far outweigh the advantages. I'm sorry your salesperson/Installer did not recommend a standalone unit.

Hi, turn off the heater. Check all the harnesses. Check each speakers one my one.
Volume might be low, if one/ two of the speakers dont work.
Check all the connections again.

If preset did not fix the low volume problem, then that means that there is a contact.

In that case there is need to verify the system wirings.

The volume is low because of a factory preset on the HON-SC1 piece; this can be resolved by:
1. Turn stock audio system on, switch to SAT operation.
2. Rapidly enter on the stock radio PRESET buttons the following code: “162534′.
3. The audio level will toggle to the new setting, which you will hear immediately if the code is entered correctly and quickly enough.
4. If no audible change, enter the code again.
5. Check the audio level on similar channel from Sirius vs. FM, then try CD.
The HON-SC1 ships with a factory setting of HIGH, but it may have been toggled into LOW by accident.


Take care.

I have a sirius mirge radio, that the back light stopped working. Everything else works fine but i just cannot see the screen at night. Can I fix it or get it fixed?


Same thing just happened to me. Sirius was of little help being as it was out of warranty by 2 months. Figures. They were finally nice enough to send me a Stratus 6 as a replacement and waive the subscription transfer fee (yay). Not a pleasant experience, but I still love their product. The Mirge is junk though...
