Question about Audiovox SIR-PNP3 SIRIUS Radio Receiver
I have the audiovox sir-pnp3 receiver and I slowly started to have the
problem where the "X" symbol started to appear in the bottom left hand
corner of the screen and the display read "Antenna Not Detected". At
first I would futz with it and eventually the error would go away and
the receiver would play but last night if finally crapped out.
If you have a volt meter first check to see if there is a voltage (6 volts) across the center pin and shield coming from the back of the docking station's antenna (ANT) connector. If the receiver does not sense that 6 volts have been 'sunk' by the antenna it assumes that the antenna is not plugged in.
Solution: I pulled off the back cover (two screws and two of those locking tabs in the upper corners) and soldered a jumper from the center pin of the antenna cable to a pad labeled 'ANT' (within an inch of the antenna cable). The sir-pnp3 appears to use a 3 layer PC board and the path from the 6 volt source to the center pin either breaks or forms a cold joint with time/wear. This path is in the center of the 3 layers and impossible to directly repair directly jumping resolves the problem without any noticeable signal loss.
