    In a Nissan pickup, this is the factory satellite ready head unit and under
    dash Sirius module. In the SAT mode, display shows 'ACQUIRING' with a pop in
    the audio about every 15 seconds. Worked fine up till last saturday night.
    It's not a signal issue, that would display 'NO SIGNAL' and it's not an
    antenna issue, that would display 'ANTENNA'.

    Anyone have information regarding troubleshooting/repairing these things?

    First off, I don't, but I bought a few extra units in case mine died. I
    have the lifetime and figured I could swap parts around and hope for
    the best if my unit failed. That might be a path to take. Look on
    ebay and see if you can find a model like yours and then pull out the
    SMD workstation. I think it will be hard to repair these things
    because of the security built into the units to prevent hacking. But
    if someone could point out the chip that holds that subscriber info and
    you can swap that around you might be able to get it to work. Also in
    case you have the lifetime I think it is only $75.00 to transfer to
    another receiver. If all else fails. If those things don't work it
    might be a good excuse to buy the new Sirius Stiletto. I think it is
    the best unit Sirius has released, I think.

    So what is the signal level? I had an antenna fail on mine that gave the
    rx just enough signal strength to keep it displaying 'acquiring'

    I would swap out the antenna before I assumed it was the rx.
