    I forgot to mention that I went ahead and changed the drive/serpentine belt while I had it all taken apart. Not sure when it was last changed, and figured for less than $20, why not!?

    Visited the stranded thing again tonight. There's no clicking when the key is turned. The drive belt turns a little, making me believe that it's not totally seized. There's a little...

    Getting the Torx30 screw out proved to be a very difficult task. In order to get the bit into the screw correctly, there's only a limited amount of room before you run into the downpipe. I tried a...

    Thank you, Frank. Any response is a relief.

    No, battery is fine. Still charged, and 12.5V reading on rest.

    I tried the disconnect/jiggle approach, and no dice.

    Thanks again.

    I see that the new JVC unit turns off when the key gets to the LOCK position (unlike the factory unit.) So, it doesn't make any difference that the Sirius unit turns off as well.
