Question about JBL MR-17 Sirius-Ready AM/FM/CD Receiver Controller

1 Answer

JBL MR-17.2 not recognizing Sirius satellite receiver.

Just got my JBL MR-17 replaced re:warranty with a MR-17.2. The old one would skip into CD mode on its own and would not eject a CD. Now the new one doesnt recognize the Sirius receiver. After pressing the mode button, the sreen says "SIRIUS1" for about 2 seconds then displays "AUX". Dealer told me the Sirius receiver is not working now. It was working fine before I got the radio replaced. What can I do to check or fix the satellite receiver issue?

I have the exact same issue. I have swapped with two identical MR17.2 radios and swapped out the sirius receiver. No change. I even bought a remote thinking I had to have a remote installed to get it to work...still no diff. Have you ever found a solution?

I have a jbl mr17 radio on boat and have activated Sirius but have no Manuel for radio and can't play Sirius. Help


Hi Marybeth,

According to the manual, "In order to receive Sirius Satellite radio broadcast, you must install JBL SIR 3.0 as well as a satellite antenna (both sold separately)"

I've included a link the manual http://prospecelectronics.com/pub/media/wysiwyg/manuals/MR-17%203.pdf to your radio and to the Sirius Satellite Box referenced above. Also listed on that page is two satellite antenna options.
http://www.boaterbarn.com/jbl_scc1bl_sirius_box_for_8085_prd1.htm
Please note I am not recommending you purchase from that site as I haven't personally ordered anything from them. Amazon may have it listed cheaper.

Good luck with your new radio!

I have a jbl mr17 radio and i want the clock to stay on


Clocks are usually wired into same circuit as your dome/interior lights, so they have constant power, regardless whether key is on or off.Should be able to find a wire to splice into around your fuse box.

You and I have satan living in our stereo


I agree. Those decks are JUNK how the hell did a great company like JBL ever allow their good name to be on those Korean junk. UNbelievable, and trust me they are not worth repairing.. You can find the exact unit at your local swap meet for $42.00 but with some name like DAWOOP, sorry friend but I too learned that lesson painfully.

Do I need a Sirius radio antena for a MBB219


What you'll actually need in order to get Sirius is a satellite specific receiver (the JBL SIR 2.5 Satellite Receiver). That should come with the antenna you need.

I have a JBL MR-17.2 Sirius Ready stereo


To get your Sirius ID number from you MR-17 JBL stereo, select the Mode button until it displays "Sirius". Then push and hold the Mode button for a couple seconds and it will chirp and display 3 blank spaces. Enter three zeros, "000" in these 3 spaces. The Zero is the loud button labeled "LD". When you do that, it will display your Sirius ID number. :)
