    Hello All.
    Black Knight here. I will check those leads myself and report back.
    I just lost my posting after my thumbs hit the wrong button.
    Anyway it's nice to have the complete 600 + page service manual. My battery status light now flases red which battery below 11.8 volts. I'll check the terminals as well look for cable corrosion.
    Thanks.
    Dave from Ontario

    Thanks Dave. Be sure and let us all know how you get on.
    Best regards to Ontario. Iíve spent a lot of time there in the Newmarket, Aurora, Lindsay and Whitby areas.
    Happy Canada Day 🇨🇦

    Hey guys.

    Did some checking of those power cables and they look to be in good shape. No corrosion found on the battery leads. Ensured terminals were clean and reassembled with dielectric grease.
    A recent return from a 3800 klm tour (Renfrew to Maine) had a similar outcome. Again No Radio Found and once home the battery showed low (11.8v) on the monitor.
    Will check connections again. Can't imagine the proximity to the salty coast of Maine to cause this reoccurance.
    Anybody have some insights or thoughts on this let me know.
    Thanks
    Dave

    Black Knight :

    Have you checked the Software Version of your Audio Unit ?

    Battery drain due to the Audio Unit not shutting down when the Ignition is switched off
    ( for the US & Canadian market with XM Satellite radio ) is a classic symptom
    of the original Version 1.04A which had a "bug" causing this,
    and which was fixed with an update to version 1.04E.

    To find the version of Audio Software installed on your Trophy :

    The Radio must be OFF when the Ignition is switched ON.

        Turn the Ignition ON but do not start the engine.
        ( If the Radio is ON it must be turned OFF by pressing the Volume Down button until RADIO OFF is displayed, then
        Turn the Ignition OFF, wait a few seconds, turn the Ignition ON and verify that RADIO OFF is displayed ).

        When RADIO OFF is displayed, Press and hold Button "P" for a few seconds
        until the DIAGNOSTICS MENU appears on the display.

        If not already displeyed Scroll to "S/W UPDATE" and press the Select button ( marked "i " ).
        Note the S/W Version number, ignoring the second line for "BB S/W"

        Press the Select button ( marked "i" ) again to exit the Software Update menu.

        Scroll to EXIT and press the Select button ( marked "i" ) to exit the Diagnostics Menu.

        Turn the Ignition OFF.

    There's a Topic here about how to obtain the Update if you do not have ready access to a Dealer :

    HOW TO: Obtain the XM Radio System Software Update ( U.S. )

    If you find that you need the update, and experience problems obtaining it,
    send me a Private Message and I can provide further guidance.

    Cheers  :821:

    Thanks Cocnut.
    I will see if I can check that software version. My Trophy battery currently on smart charger. Will see if I can find out that info.
    Stay tuned.
