Question Audiovox PNP 2 Problem

Started the car this morning, turned on the PNP2, the Sirius logo came up and never went away. I power cycled it, checked the connections, even brought it inside to the home dock .... same results, it just stays on the Sirius Logo.

Any ideas?

I've never seen this behavior in the 3 years I've had my PNP2. But I'd suggest taking your PNP2, putting it face-down on a towel, and removing the 2 phillips screws on the back. Carefully pry off the back shell, then try carefully re-seating the Molex connectors plugged into the circuit boards inside--sometimes temperature changes over long periods can cause intermittent contact inside these connectors. If you can't pull out each connector, at least carefully pry them a few mm loose, then re-seat. Do this at your own risk, as it must be out of warranty by now!

Also, using a magnifying glass, examine the gold contacts in the electrical connector on the PNP2 that mates with your docking stations. Check for damage, gunk, etc. You might want to clean it with electrical contact cleaner spray (from Radio Shack, etc.)
