Symptoms and Conditions
After installing an optional Mazda Sirius Satellite radio kit, the SAT button
on the radio is inop or will not allow the user to control the SAT system.
For the 'SAT' button to be functional, the radio head (radio that came with
vehicle) must have the correct SAT software installed. To check the OE radio for
correct software, use the following procedure:
- Turn radio on and volume to zero.
- While pressing and holding the 'Audio Cont Knob', press the #1 preset
button for more than two (2) seconds. Audio Control knob is the knob on the
right side of radio and marked.
- After pressing the #1 preset button for more than two (2) seconds, the
software version will be displayed. If the display shows a version that is
less than 1.61, the radio does not have the correct software for SAT, and will
need to be exchanged at United Radio.
If the display shows a version of 1.61 or higher, the radio has been upgraded
with the correct SAT software.
