Question about Sirius Satellite Radio Receiver

2 Answers

I have a 2009 Kia Rio with a factory Sirus Sattlite Radio. I have had the entire radio unit replaced but I still have a problem where I get a message, "Aquiring Signal". This happens even when I am in an open area. At times it cuts in and out alot and at times it works fine. It even works while driving in a short tunnel. I have had Sirius send reset signals but the problem continues. Is it possible the cable is not connected to the antenna good? If so, how do I get the factory mounted antenna loose so I can check the connections?

There is a separate radio module behind the dash that hooks to the antenna and the radio it is a known issue. Good luck.

Hi there, you can try to change the radio, if not, you have to see the outside cable signal catcher.

SOURCE: Constantly goes to "linking" whenever I select Sirius. Sirius tells me that means an antenna problem. However, I have tried a new antenna with the same results.

The unit needs to be replaced. solder pins on the PC board of the unit are broken. Clarion has about 100,000 of these units with the same problem. You can find a replacement online for $50 that's been fixed & the problem should not re-occur. Sorry for the bad news. Hope this helps

Check to make sure the antenna did not unplug from the back of the radio. This can cause you to loose all FM radio signals

Go to the radio station that you want, once there, push any of the numbered buttons and hold it there for a couple of seconds. That should set it.
