Question about JVC KT-SR1000 SIRIUS Radio Receiver
Hi. I bought a used 2004 used car 1.5 yrs. ago that has a dash mountiung bracket and two wires coming out behind bracket. I know I have a satellite antenna above my windshield. My question is, will a new Sirius radio hook up to this. I tried my friends Sirius Sportster Replay and it worked fine. Do I have to worry about power differences?
Yes, some sirius radios work on 5 volts, and some work on 12 volts. Your sportster replay is a 5 volt unit. If you trace that wire back, you will find a cigarette lighter plug with a transformer built into it, with either wires soldered to the terminals, or a female cig plug wired up behind the dash. Whatever sirius unit you plan on hooking up, I strongly reccommend using the transformer that it came with......however if you're willing to take a chance, it's most likely 5 volts.

I had the same issue. This is what Sirius calls a "Frozen Unit". There is no bypass, unfortunately, and it must be returned.
I had mine for 3 days and it froze on the Sirius Logo screen when booting up. If you bought the unit from Sirius, you must contact their E-Commerce department. If bought from a retailer, take it back to the store.
