Re: starmate 4 acquiring signal

With the antenna plugged in, it may take a minute to aquire the signal. If it takes more than a minute there is a problem with the antenna or the reciever.

Alpine CDE-9845, no audio from cd's either normal or mp3. Tuner works fine. Where to troubleshoot?

You have the wrong blue wire connected.
Your power antenna wire is hooked to the amp remote wire and vice versa.
Your radio thinks the tuner is off - and is dropping the signal thru the power antenna wire - and turning off your amplifer.
Switch the 2 blue wires in your install - and you'll be all set.

Radio works fine but power goes off when switch to CD player

Your antenna remote is installed on the amplifier turn on lead.
When your Radio switches source - it thinks the antenna should go down and drops the signal (and thereby dropping the signal to your amplifier).
Swap the 2 "blue" wires and you'll be all set.

Sirius starmate 2replay has no sound. how do I go

When you hit the menu button go to FM transmitter and make sure is is turned on, and sellect a frequency
to set it to that is not being used by a radio station, tune you radio to the same frequency. if you are using the audio out on the starmate to plug directly into an aux in on you stereo, there should be a audio level adjustment in the menu as well.

2007 Chrysler 300 , AM radio not working , but FM works fine

Usually when you lose only AM it is an antenna issue. Check for a loose antenna plug on the back of the radio or connection to the antenna.

You may have a bad antenna or antenna cable.
FM signals are measured in microvolts and are easily influenced by poor antennas or a mashed antenna cable.

Power Amp not working When A CD is playing

Hi Cassiel,

You have it wired wrong. The Power Antenna wire is for antenna only. When you go to something other than Radio, the antanna wire signal to turn retract the antennaor turn off your amp. you need to use the Blue wire coming out of your CD player. The intended function of the Blue is remote turn on when every the radio is turned on. This will keep you amp on as long as your Radio is turned on. Change the wires behind the radio from the Power antenna to Blue Remote wire.
