Hi Petstuart. I have the exact same problem on my boat I just bought. There is also to more controlers that are not working. It worked on Sat channel 1 the first time out, and thats it. Now, after I reset it, only cd and volume work at the head unit only. Did you find the problem?

I fixed the problem !!!!!!! All I did was, unpluged the 2 remotes , and the head unit worked fine. Next, I plugged on of the remotes back in. And it worked fine, Next, I plugged the swim grid remote back in, and everything went bad. So.... The swim grid remote is shot. I went on ebay and found a company that sells new ones. I think it was around $90.00. Had it shipped out, and installed it. It works perfect !!!! everything is working fine. !!

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.

I have a JBL MR 15 does this radio have a place in the back to plug in an ipod adapter. I think it is an Aux input RCA Jack The radio is on my boat and not near for me to look at it.


if it has aux input rca's, then go to an electronics or car audio shop and buy a "stereo rca to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter cable" This will then plug into the headphone jack on the ipod.

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.

I can't find whether or not The JBL MR-17 will


I have looked at several sites and none say that they do so I assume they don't.Also if a player does it normally says on the front.

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. :)

Jbl marine mr-17 all funtions are frozen


Hi,

Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? The reset button is at the panel at the back of the faceplate, bottom left side. Of course doing so will also erase all presets and user settings & configurations.

Additionally, pls verify that the multiple contacts pins are clean, free of corrosion and makes a positive contact with its mate at the rear of the faceplate. If the unit is used in a salty environment, it may be necessary to manually scrape of whatever blue green build up develops between the connector pins and the plastic insulator. You can try using an old toothbrush and WD40.

Further to check are:
1. the red, yellow and black wire are tightly connected where they are supposed to be connected. If the unit is used onboard, it might be to your advantage to likewise check the grounding system;
2. one of the rear connector is for a remote, pls likewise check that none of the pins are shorting and no presence of any corrosion.

If problem persists, it may be necessary to seek the services of a qualified professional as this involves opening the unit up and tracing the circuitry of the logic/controller circuit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
