My Kenwood Mod H2E Sirius Satellite Radio no longer gets a signal

Hi, When I turn on my three-year old Kenwood Model H2E Sirius Satellite radio you just see the word ''Sirius'' flash by on the screen and all you hear is a beep every six or seven seconds. I tried calling Sirius to do a reset and I tried turning the power on and off many times and I tried using a different antenna but nothing works. Can you help? If not, do you know any place in Southern California where they can fix it?

    Funny, I have ethe EXACT same problem! COuld it be because of the XM merger? Or is it something to do with the FCC making Sirius use a less powerful trasnsmitter? I heard from a salesperson at Best Buy that the FCC came down on them because of the signal bleeding into other cars in the near proximity.

    I have the same problem . I wonder if sirius did this? Did any one have a lifetime subscription on there radio.

    I had the same problem last summer and after a couple of months with no Sirius I bought the Stratus as it was the cheapest solution. While I had no car sirius, I still could log on and listen online.

    I was immediately suspicious as was one of the other guys reporting the same problem with the Kenwood H2E, that it had to do with the FCC and the power of the unit bleeding into other cars.

    ...pretty sleezy if Kenwood/Sirius could actually cause the radios to 'fry' upon command.. or be pre-programmed to self destruct after a certain length of time in service. I'm now suspicious about the Stratus and how long will this one last???? At least with AM and FM the radios built 50+ years ago still pull in the signal, and you can get them repaired if they die!!!

Have sirius and hands free phone features with sirius antennae. I do not get good signals from local FM or AM Radio stations. Why?

Sirius is a satellite biased service , so it uses a satellite antenna , local stations how ever don't use that antenna and use a dipole antenna , are both type antenna's connected to your radio , lots of installers don't bother to connect local antenna to new radio installs , im mean you got Sirius why'd you want local stuff anyway is there thinking

The radio says it's Satellite ready, but when I hit the search button I do not get a Satellite option. When I called Sirius/XM to switch service from one car to another, they said that I must now also...

No it is satellite ready, meaning you need to add atuner to the stereo, but you can use the stereo to control the tuner. Again, a seperate tuner will need to be bought and installed. Good Luck.

Kenwood KTS-300MR

you need to firstly trace the speaker wires to the unit to make sure there connected first. if they are then its a job for a car audio expert ( if there is such a thing) if the unit is connected to correctly to the speakers then there is an internal fault ..

Radio needs to be reset, I have no code.

Unfortunately KENWOOD codes are not available for free from anywhere on the Internet.

Try your local Radio Decoding Service or Car Radio / Audio Store ...who will connect it to a laptop and read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)

Want sirius on this

CLICK HERE for your owners manual

Your radio is already Satellite READY - all you need is the Sirius Tuner/antenna.


The model # is KTC-SR901/902

eBay Auction #1
eBay Auction #2

This is a subscription service - so that is required as well to activate the radio.

Plays radio not cds

You may have Power antenna and amp remote turn on wires switched. Your system may be looking for turn on signal from radio and only gets it when am or fm is on because power antenna wire is hooked up instead of amp turn on signal.
