Question about Jensen Car Audio & Video

Open Question

I have a 2007 Bayliner Capri with a Jensen msr170 radio w/ Sirius. My problem is that I cannot get good sound when I use the MP3 connection. The volume is very low and I have to turn it all the way up just to hear it a little bit. Can you please tell me whatthe problem might be?

SOURCE: I just got an Alpine

a few problems could happen...try connecting the power antenna up, and the amp wire into that also...i am a mobile electronics installer and have had to do that a lot.....also, you may have a factory amplifier that isnt letting really any sound out....the factory amp should let the speakers work at all with a aftermarket radio unless you buy a bypass but you never know...i would first try the first thing i mentioned

This happened to me too--with the same unit. I finally took it apart and found that the volume up button was shot. The tiny piece of metal that makes electronic contact had actually snapped in the middle causing contact to be made at random by bumps rattles or just about anything. Since the unit automatically comes on when the volume button is pressed, even turning it off was ineffective. So...I unsoldered one of the buttons that I never used much and soldered it where the broken volume button had been. I'm no expert, so I was rather surprised when the unit worked after i reattached it in my dash. Anyways, it was a cheap fix for a cheap--and poorly made deck. good luck

2007 Nissan Altima radio works but no sound, do I have to replace the radio?


Is your windshield broken. you may have NO antenna. Also do you, or have you had an account with Sirius Radio? If so, contact Sirius. To actually test to see if there is a speaker problem, look up radio repairs, take it by to get an estimate on fixing; They may tell you if it is what you think or not and give you a price. If it is not those things and the estimate is too high. you may opt for a portable radio to put in the car. They're cheap now. Might save you either a bunch of dollars or a bunch of time and grief, or both.

good luck,

How do I get the Sirius ID number to display on my Jensen MSR4115G? Have tried following manual but cannot get it to work.


Go back to where the direct tune display reads 000 and do not touch any buttons. After approximately 5 seconds the display will read ESN followed by a 4 digit number. Be patient it may take a few seconds to display. Write down the four digits then press the Disp button. The last 8 digits of the number will be displayed. You should have 12 digits total not counting ESN. I have the same model Jensen and this worked for me. The Sirius tech line did not have the correct process for this model. Good luck!

Radio shows antenna not deteted or acquiring signal but does not work . antenna and all connections are good, ??


The problem is likely the actual connection inside the Starmate. It sounds like you have tried alternate antennas, which can only mean the unit itself has an issue. What has likely happened is the antenna jack inside the radio has come loose and is no longer making a connection, in which case it could be repairable. Otherwise there are plenty of other 12v Sirius receivers compatible with the same connections if you are looking to replace the head unit.

Our new motorhome came with a sirius ready Jensen vr187 radio-how do we hook up to Sirius, and does it need an antenna, or is that part of ''sirius ready''?


Sirius Ready means that there is another piece the company makes that is for sale seperately from the reciever. you need to get the whole sirius system and it will just plug in and play through your existing setup.

I had the same problem and there are a couple of reason why you may not be able to get into Sirius Mode.

  1. You have the wrong type of antenna (it must be a Sirius approved antenna)
  2. You may not have installed the tuner (most Sirius ready units need require that you have a tuner hooked up to your unit to get satellite reception. The tuners are specific to your unit, so make sure you but the correct one. This is quite sneaky on Sirius’ part…but good luck).

It should work if Jensen says so. Buy from BesBuy, CircuitCity or someone who will take it back in case it is not compatible. Remember to ask for one that would compatible with Jensen. Goodluck.

Stiletto constantly powering off


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....
