Question about Ford F-150

Open Question

I have a 2007 F150 Lariat with the factory installed premium radio. The radio has SIRIUS installed. I listened to SIRIUS free for about one month, then it stopped and said to call SIRIUS at their 888 number. I called and tried to activate the radio subscription I purchased, but the radio would not reset. Most of my time was spent working through trouble shooting techniques with Tech Support at SIRIUS. The result: SIRIUS could not activate the radio by sending an activation signal. They said to go to the dealership to perform a "hard reset" on the radio. Is this the correct solution to the problem? Will this "hard reset" allow the SIRIUS reactivation signal to work properly and reactivate the servier? Thanks. Tony

SOURCE: sirius radio says to call 888-539-subscribe

Umm.. Call the number?

Sounds like the subscription is out.

Could be clerical on their side, could be any number of things. But that's pretty simple. It says call the number, so call the number.

They may not be able to speak to you since you're not the account holder, so you might need to have your sister call, in which case, provide the serial number of the unit to your sister and have them call.

SOURCE: Audi A8 onstar spontaneously activates

if there is nothing pushing the button, it will be a fault in your Onstar button. It could have possibly had soda spilled on it, not saying it did, but that would definately do it in

Get your subscription refunded. There is nothing wrong with your radio. if they can't make it work, don't pay them.

I had a similar problem. Tune your sirius to 184, leaving the radio and the key on with the drivers door open. Let set for 15 minutes. Before you do this procedure, call sirius to tell them to send a boost to your radio. This should take care of your problem. Good luck :)

Testimonial: "After following the recommended procedure, the radio worked perfectly until I shut off the car. Upon restarting, NO SIGNAL. Frustrating!"

Getting the sid number off a factory installed sirius radio

I had attempted to contact Sirius for this answer and they had told me that you cannot retrieve the SID from an OEM installed radio and that it can be obtained from a sticker on the owner's manual.

In my situation my SID was not on my owner's manual, and after they had assured me that it was in fact there and I was not looking hard enough I requested to speak to a manager who had told me that an SID is not required for an OEM installed radio due to the fact that they can look each radio up by VIN as well.

Replace satellite system in 2007 saturn aura xr

If you are looking to convert your radio from XM to Sirius, there are a number of kits available by typing 'convert radio from XM to Sirius' into your favorite search engine. But why bother? XM and Sirius have merged and you can now get Sirius programming on the XM band.

It is not downloadable, but the library will probably have a Mitchell repair manual with wiring diagrams.
