Question about Audiovox SIRPNP2 SIRIUS Radio Receiver

Open Question

I have a Audiovox SIRPNP2 radio/SIRCK-1 that won't work reliably.

I have an Audiovox SIRPNP2 receiver that I purchased a lifetime subscription for about 8 years ago. The receiver still works but I can't get it to work reliably with the SIRCK-1 vehicle cradle. I still get the display which shows that I'm receiving signal and I can change channels but get no audio reliably. Sometimes I can get it to work by squeezing the cradle and receiver together but as soon as I let it go it quits. I do get a signal carrier on the frequency I choose but nothing else. Any suggestions??? Would another cradle cure the problem? I hate to put out more money on it but then I feel I'm missing out on the programing I've already paid for and can't use. I am a techie type so am not afraid to try anything, including taking it apart etc. Thanks for any help you can give me. Dennis

SOURCE: No Display

Sounds to me like the display went bad on you. I'm not too sure your those though.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: I have good antenna strength but no programming.

The tuner is bad. The antenna miniport on your tuner has either a broken or cold solder joint and therefore will not receive. If it's under warranty, they will replace it, if not, you can buy the tuner re-built on Ebay for around 50.00 and is better than new. Hope this helps

Check your copper pin cylinder on the back of the receiver that goes into the cradle. The metal cylinder surrounding the copper pin can shave off or crack, causing these problems. If you can put your hands on another unit, you can replace this area with the parts unit. Unscrew the two screws holding the unit together and then slowly pry the unit apart, inserting a very thin blade and moving it slowly around the frame. Once inside, you will see screws holding down the area with the copper pins. You can remove this and put it in your receiver.

It won't turn on. Does anyone repair them? I have a lifetime subscription on it


There's a few people on eBay that repair sirius radios in general. The only real way to save your lifetime sub is to take your XM Radio ID chip (containing the lifetime sub info), and place it in a new radio. You'd probably also need to find a working radio if you'd like that repair done (which isn't nearly as easy as I made it sound).

It depends when you bought the lifetime subscription. The rules changed. Post and follow this link. It seems to cover your question:

I inherited a disfunctional SIRPNP2. The signal strength meter in the lower left corner always displays an "x". Anyone have an idea? Thanks


A couple of things to try. First, try pulling out the anntenna from the back just slightly. My SIRPNP2 gets a better connection that way. Also, check to make sure that your annenna isn't bad. If you have a friend that has Sirius, connect their anntenna to your unit. If it works, replace your anntenna.

Pin in back of receiver broke off


If you can put your hands on another unit for parts, you can open it and replace your damaged pin with one from the unit for parts. It takes a little time and care but you can do it.

Call Audiovox support. After waiting an hour I was told the unit (pnp2) was faulty and I was to call customer service to arrange a replacement. Mine is on the way to NY.
