I have a 08 Maserati Quattroporte that has preset channels on my radio how can I change them so I can add Sirius radio which I need to put it on 90.5 as the station to do this please help


Read operating guide , usually found in glovebox with other documents that tell you how to turn lights on and indicator location.

Or do a manual search for required station, then press and hold on say preset button 1 to lock in the station. You may hear a bleep when done successfully or 1 may flash, press 1 again to confirm...

This should lock in your radio station of choice on your desired preset button..

How to I delete an occupied preset and enter another channel


My experience has always been to replace the current station preset with the new.
I recall two process:
  1. The first locate the new station that you want and tune the radio to the station. Press and hold the specific preset for several seconds to replace the old station with the new.
  2. Tune the radio to the new station and press the set button if so equipped and than press the preset button. In some radios they have group 1 and group 2. In that case press the set button once for set 1 and press it twice for set 2 and then press the preset button.
Hope this has helped?

Radio preset button broke


I did some searching and came up "empty handed" also. It looks like you have 3 options; 1. Call a junk yard. 2. Go to a dealer and 3. If you are not set on keeping the original, install an aftermarket radio. Good luck!

What is the radio code for my 2008 honda accord with the VIN number 1HGCP36818A007229


Check the glove-box. Typically Honda places a small sticker on the back side of the glove compartment door. There should be two different sets printed on the sticker. The set with five digits is your radio code. Use the radio preset buttons to enter the code. If you have done it correctly, the radio will come on instantly with the factory default presets.

2003 Lexus ES300 How does one save Radio Statio presets? Going to the station and holding the button to save does not work.


Holding the button is supposed to work. This from owner's manual: PRESETTING A STATION:
  1. Tune in the desired station.
  2. Push one of the station selector buttons (1-6) and hold it until a beep is heard. This sets the station to the button and the button number (1-6) appears on the display.
Each button can store one AM station and two FM stations. To change the preset station to a different one, follow the same procedure. The preset station memory is cancelled when the power source is interrupted by battery disconnection or a blown fuse.

Set Radio Station Presets


Try just holding the button of choice down. In my Audi, when I had a factory head unit, to set for example, preset 2, I'd just tune to the station I wanted to program, and then hold down the number 2 preset button until the display stopped blinking. It was then preset.
