Question about Sirius Sportster 5 Satellite Radio Receiver with Vehicle Kit

Open Question

My Sirius Sportster 5 satellite radio wont turn on sitting in the cradle in my car. It’s powered by the cigarette lighter in my car, not custom installed. How can I run a diagnostic on the radio to see if it’s a problem with the radio itself or something else? I am able to power my Garmin from the same cigarette lighter.

SOURCE: my fuse blows everytime i plug in my sirius radio

is that the only device that is blowing a fuse? if it is the only thing blowing your fuse you may need to replace the charger. check the fuse to make sure it is the correct size ( usually 10 amp). check the power adapter to make sure there are no loose connections or anything in the plug that doesn't belong there. unplug the radio from the adapter and plug the adapter in without the radio see if the fuse blows . if it blows replace the adapter. if it doesn't blow the fuse check the adapter to make sure it is the right one make sure the polarity is correct

How does a audovox sirius pnp3 work, how to hook up in c ar


The cradle connects to the cigarette lighter connection for power. There is a connection for the Magnet mount antenna which sticks to the roof. The radio can output a radio frequency signal which you can tune your fm radio to receive. It has a number of frequencies to choose from so you can try to find one that is quiet and works best.

It may be that the dock isn't working, I would return it for a new one to the place that you bought it from to make sure that you have a dock that works.

Look at the bottom of your unit, you'll notice the round port next to the slot? It get's jammed up inside the unit if you pressed to hard setting it into the cradle at some point. Not easy to fix, unfortunatley.

Sportster 4 not working...


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.

 

Sorry, mate.

Power supply to Sirius Radio


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.

Unfortunately this is a fairly common problem in the Sportster, caused by worn contacts in the tuner. Sometimes you can temporarily resolve the problem by wedging a thin piece of cardboard behind the tuner in the cradle, to create a better contact; but eventually it will just wear out again.
