Satellite Radio Cracking?

Hey all..new Jeep WK2 Overland w saddle.......beautiful vehicle and loving it. She's only 4 days old and has been everything its been built up to be. Yesterday the Satellite radio starting cracking and hasn't stopped. Radio and cd work fine without the cracking. Any ideas for a quick fix.......or to the dealer I go.

JD

Re: Satellite Radio Cracking?

Mine too! I just brought mine home last night and the Satellite radio was cracking when I tried it this morning. I'll head for the dealership tomorrow for an amp replacement. Thanks one11sgt.

I was just getting ready to start this thread. Mine is crackling too. Only on fox news, CNN, stern. Music sounds fine. I think it's more of a Sirius problem than 730

Re: Satellite Radio Cracking?

I was listening to Stern at lunch today and it was crackling as well, must be something with Sirius and not the 730 like Kaflyboy said.

Re: Satellite Radio Cracking?

The amp problem would affect all radio (AM, FM, and Sat), not just the Sat. I think Sirius has a problem.

Re: Satellite Radio Cracking?

Mine stopped crackling, so you may be right about the Sirius issue.

Re: Satellite Radio Cracking?

I noticed this the other day too. Seemed like a muffled static and it was more noticeable on the talk radio stations. HDD and aux input worked fine.

Chiming in... Mine started yesterday. Has to be a 'network' Sirius issue. They did a big channel update last night so maybe it was caused by preliminary work to their station guides. Didn't notice anything this morning.

Re: Satellite Radio Cracking?
