Retaining OEM Sirius 2010 Ford Edge (non nav)

Post by boiler662 » Mon May 21, 2018 10:31 pm

I got my other issue fixed turns out Pioneer used some non automotive grade chips in their older radios and in cold enough weather they can contract enough to damage the chip which explains why when the radio warmed up it worked normally.

So I got a kenwood DDX9704S and everything is fine except Sirius (we have the non nav system in our Edge), they are running a free preview right now and when I select it from the OEM screen I get sent to the preview channel with audio and from there I am unable to change to a normal channel. If I plug the factory radio back in I can receive all of the channels during the free preview. From the RR program page it says Sirius will be retained with the module which I am assuming is true considering I can tune and listen to the preview channel.

Are my assumptions correct?

You aare correct, the RR retains the OEM SAT tuner. There are a couple things i would check, first ensure the radio is operating with the most current firmware from Kenwood, you can check this under system settings (update if needed). Next, reset the radio to default settings by reinitializing it under settings. Lastly, reset maestro rr under maestro settings. another thing that you can try but I dont think its it is to call serious and when the radio is tuned to SAT radio have them reping the tuner.

Thanks Justin

I did everything except the update there is one available but I had this same issue with my old pioneer. Interesting observation I pulled the fuse for the sirius module and it would temporially let me tune to a standard station then kick me back to the preview channel.
