#39 of 48 re: Sirius 07 XLS [comem47]
Feb 15, 2008 (6:38 am)
I took it in to a local dealer and they said it would be $300 for parts then whatever labor. I guess there is the actual sirrius radio $210 and the install kit $90 that I will have to purchase. Unfortunately the original owner either did not care or did not realize there was an issue with the factory radio. I am having the issue many others did with the treble fading in and out. They have ordered me a new radio so I am hoping when it gets installed they will allow me to see how they open up the radio area and get behind it. I am fairly confident that once inside I can do the installations myself of the sirius unit. I will also be attempting to contact Sirius to see if there is a discount for existing customers or if I can get a discount for returning my current radio and upgrading to the in dash system. Never hurts to ask eh?
Thanks for the comments and the help though!

Comem47 - Would you happen to know how to disable Sirius in a Sirius enabled radio?

I guess I don't follow why you need to disable it. instead of Sirius you can listen to AM or FM radio or select CD or Aux input (MP3 etc) just by pushing the correct buttons. So just don't select the Sat radio position and leave it set for FM.

If you remove the lower glovebox there is a Sirius module on the right side. Can't miss it. If you disconnect that you still might get the Sirius mode on the stereo, though.

BT audio quality is fine in the 2010. The only thing I do is make sure the heater/AC fan is off or at minimal speed to reduce background noise. No one on the other end of a call has ever complained about our voice quality.
2010 models have dual-mics in the headliner; I'm not sure about prior years.

I use my phone to play Pandora and then streamed it over BT to my Outlander. It's a 2010 so I don't know if your 2008 would do it. With BT enabled on your phone do you have the option of selecting BT as an input on the stereo?
BlueTooth has profiles for different functions so it's possible your Outlander supports BT phone profile but not BT audio streaming. Basic profile info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth_profile
It isn't super detailed but there is a little info at http://www.mitsubishicars.com/MMNA/jsp/owners-site/technology-features.do

Erik, did you also try the "super-secret" password of 1234?
Beyond that I'm not sure so I'd suggest doing an RTFM or calling Mitsu's customer service number: 1-888-MITSU2010 (1-888-648-7820). Some references I saw from a quick search showed that dealers should be able to reset the BT module.
#47 of 48 OK, that was weird

I didn't look at the post dates and apparently replied to some old discussions. Oops.
The forum software must've glitched as I was viewing the threads using the "Read new posts" option.

Oh, some posts were consolidated and I moved some out of sequence.
But just think of all the Bing/Google/Yahoo searchers you've helped.
