I heard these have a common problem with the antenna line breaking within the radio. I had it happen and replaced the radio. It's a shame since I'm sure I could have fixed it. I think it happens if the radio ends up hanging from the antenna lead. Any electronic tech or engineer should be able to check continuity from the antenna jack and find/fix it.

I use a wired fm modulator that the fm antenna passes through. When the sirius radio is on it blocks the regular fm signal preventing local signals from interferring. Do a search for wired fm modulator and you should find one. Mine actually fit inside the dash on my pickup.

The dispaley states "aquiring antenna" but never finds it,can this be fixed?


Yes. However, it depends on what is causing the acquiring signal message. It could be that you just have to replace the dock or antenna. But it could also mean the unit is going bad, in which case it would need to be repaired. www.tss-radio.com has a repair guy, though with that unit being discontinued for as long as it has, he may not have parts. You may have to search around for a replacement on amazon or ebay.

It's a bad Sirius tuner. You can find them on ebay for 50 or so rebuilt and they are better than new. It's cold solder joints on the antenna input plug. Hope this helps

Sirpnp2 reciever gets hot and loses signal.


I had the exact same problem with Sirius radios. I bought two Kenwood DTS-7000S receivers and both were sent back for warranty. Of the two, they only fixed one but by the time I figured out the other was bad, it was out of warranty. Kenwood, along with the repair community state they do fix such units, they toss them out. The thing that gets hot hot hot is the part that receives the Sirius antenna inside your unit. If you're like me and have nothing to lose then I recommend doing some cutting with a dremel and adding a small computer fan. It just takes a light breeze to keep that part cool enough (but it does take some sort of breeze, convection is out). For a home unit, find an old A/C power supply and match it to an old computer fan of equal or less voltage. For car, find a fan that uses 12 volts or less. It's an easy fix, really!

Acquiring signal


My wife replaced the car kit.
The sportster itself was fine, what fixed the problem was replacing the cradle.
Now the second one has taken a dump.
