Battery drain/charge problems - Sirius Stiletto 100

I have a stiletto 100 that will not consistently take/hold a charge. If I get the battery fully charged and leave it in the radio receiver, it will drain within hours even while not in use. However, if I get it charged and then remove the battery until I want to use the radio, it will be fully charged to start, but will deplete more rapidly than it should. I bought it in November 2006, and have the normal, plus extended life batteries, with similar problems no matter which battery I use. My thought is that the start (on/off) switch is shorted and/or causing the drain, so I don't think a new battery will fix my problem. Your thoughts? Gary B

An ohm meter across the contacts of the switch, with the battery removed, will show you if it has shorted. If you get a full scale defection on the meter, just like touching the test probes together, in the off position you will have a short.

You must be sure to have satellite radio turned off in order to connect to the pc. If you are using a home dock, first make sure satellite is off and then push the "Sync" button on the front of the home dock.

SOURCE: Sirius Stiletto 2 Problem

That's one of several problems my Stiletto 2 has. The only solution I've found is to "reboot" the unit. You'll have to remove the unit from the cradle, pop the back off, and remove the battery for a few seconds. Then put everything back together and power it up. It will take a minute or two, but once it reboots it should be fine.

I ran the stiletto device recovery program and it works again. You can find it on the Sirius website by searching for "stiletto device recovery". However, it does delete all of the content that you have saved on the stiletto.

My Stiletto 2 works fine in the car and in the home dock, but it will not read my battery. I have changed batteries out with another Stiletto 2, and the batteries show 100% charged in the other Stiletto,...


You may want to try to run a device recovery. Sometimes when a battery is drained, the Stiletto only remembers the status of the last battery as it ran completely out. A device recovery would help it reinitialize and recognize a new battery. Instructions and links for device recovery can be found here: http://www.tss-radio.com/links

Sirius Satellite Stiletto 2


My Stiletto got the same problem at around the same time. I have been reading many stiletto owners problems and see many of the same problems erupting at around the same time-mid to late February. I just spoke with a Sirius Representative who said the Stiletto 2 has been discontinued. Seems like a conspiracy to me.

Won't hold charge


Dear Iblaze1136, Fri 2-20-2009 8:22pm EST (USA)

Batteries must be charged completely when they are new or they will never hold a charge right!
I'm assuming you never fully charged them when new and so they will never hold much of a charge!
The Solution is to replace the battery or batteries and charge properly (overnight or at least 8hrs).
I recommend Radio Shack for this!

Solution is downloading the sirius recovery software from sirius.com My radio would not connect to my computer because it would not fully turn on. disconnect the battery. Hold the DISPLAY and OPTIONS button on the radio face when reconnecting battery. Connect to PC and Sirius Recovery Program will pop up. Run program, takes approx 10 to 15 min and radio works good as new.
RUNNING PROGRAM WILL ERASE YOUR LIBRARY ON YOUR RADIO....
