Battery drain/charge problems - Sirius Stiletto 100

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.

Acquiring Signal

Try resetting it to defaults if you haven't done that yet. I had a similar problem with a Stratus 4, and that took care of it for me.. Sounds like perhaps some kind of NVRAM gets corrupted and a full reset clears it up.

Good Luck. Hope it helps you like it did me.. Just remember to jot down all your presets first, because you will need to reset them.

My sirius skips to am function from disc, Satelittle and Ipod

Can you be more specific about what model number you are using? Is this a car in-dash unit or a boombox, or what? Thanks.

Have a 2007 Jeep Commander. Sirius is intermittent and will flip over to FM frequently

First question is if you ever spilled a soft drink into the radio such that the AM/FM/SAT switch gets sticky? 2nd, do you have any way to pull-out the radio and borrow a magnetic-mount Sirius antenna to temporarily test and see if the antenna on the vehicle is bad? If passing the first two tests, then it's likely the whole radio unit has to be replaced with a model from a similar year. Actually, the audio quality you get from an XM Onyx will be much better than the Sirius radio in the Chrysler vehicles, and you can just use the AUX input on the radio for playback.

Diagrams wiring 25768139

Most GM radios are coded to only work in the car with a matching VIN number, so most of the time you cannot do it, sorry to say. Actually, the new ONYX PLUS radio has many more features than the Caddy XM, like remembering the last 30 minutes you've listened to and the ability to pause at a drive-thru, etc. Schematics are next to impossible - back in the 80's Delco would share, but not since.

Why do i only get 184 and no other stations

You need to put the van out in the open with the radio "ON" (car off) and leave it on CH184. Call the 800 (855-whatever) number and ask them to send a "refresh signal" to your radio after you give them the Serial number from channel 0. Wait about 20 minutes, you should eventually see an "updating" message on the display; then see if you get channel 5; if so, then you're good. Again. Car off; radio power on, van out in the open; call Sirius and ask for a 'refresh signal' for your serial number. You'll have to call during the day when they have customer service reps available. Good luck; call on your cellphone and they can walk you thru these same steps.

Sirius truck antenna stopped working

The truck antennas can go bad. It could be the cable though. You can replace either part at www.tss-radio.com

This is my third XM

Hi,issues like this occurring all the time, and buying the same product three times with the same issues,It not worth buying again..

What i would advice is this,I think XM radio is a particular series that has a manufacturer problem called Factory Error from the company.. So all the XM radio series produced had a particular problem that makes the radio die within a short period of time...

So i would say you could try out another product of radio that will last longer.. But first you still need to take that model and try out another different model Since money refund is not an option is these case...

Hope it helped...

Why is signal not reaching

Hold it out the window. If it works than move the location of the receiver within the vehicle. Satellite is line of sight not radio waves.

Sirius sportster sp-tk1, always displays "acquiring signal"

Hi guys!! I am a sirius satellite radio employee and unfortunately, when this happens (usually when the receiver is about 2 years old) the radio is pretty much shot. It is a common problem with the older sportster models, but not so much with the newer one. As the receivers are probably more than a year old, they are now out of warranty and the only resolution is to call us at sirius and say you want to cancel the subscription on the radio. When cancellation is imminent, we will offer to send you a replacement (although it will be a different unit not compatible with you current docking stations) at no cost to you. Sometimes an antenna replacement will actually stop the problem, but it will happen again very shortly afterward, and thus it is only a temp fix to a permanent problem. Hope this helps you out!!

I have a 2009 Dodge Ram pickup with factory sirius

We had the same issue with our 2007 Dodge Ram truck. We use an external antenna when we have the camper on. You can buy these at various places on line. Get the car antenna not the home antenna. It magnetically mounts onto the truck so we put it on our hood and routed the antenna wire through the passenger side door. Our satellite box is behind the glove box. Remove the glove box and look up in the cavity. We were able to just unplug the factory antenna and plug the external antenna in. It's easy to switch back too. Just be careful with the antenna wire because it's fragile and any little bit of damage makes it useless.
