SOURCE: sirius not working after taking to dealership for unrelated problem

How did the dealership resolve the battery draw issue. Did they rewire the Sirius for you. If so they could have wired the unit wrong. If you have a newer vehicle most of the wires in the dash are a very light gauge and most fuctions are controlled by, what's called a Body Control Module. Some of these wires are not a very good place to draw power from not onlt could it damage your Sirius Radio it could damage the electronics in your car as well. I suggest getting it looked at by a professional. Then go from there.

Sounds like this problem is very new...did it start to do this at first or just lately? I hate to sound ugly on this topic, but OUCH! I am just going to let you guys know to look at the manual in trouble shooting. Try to reset the is a trick while in the car. Open the car with the radio(sirius radio) off, wait 10 secs close the door, turn it on...reset then call sirius and go from there. (RESET)

SOURCE: Can't get XM channels

Goto You will need to access you account and find out if your radio is upgradeable for XM channels. You can find that out once you try to add xm to your account.

If it isn't you can get a free or a discounted radio from them to do it by calling customer service up. They do that for existing customers.

Okay, definitely do not spend $500, that is crazy, but I think I got your issue here. Since the Sirius / XM merger, there are sometimes 2 different stations, on Sirius, the other XM. With channel updates things have changed a bit. For instance, your channel 144 is probably now channel 123. Channel 36 can be found going to channel 81. So basically replace those two presets with the new channel numbers, 123 and 81.

Hope that helps!!

Good luck,

Is there audio on 184? It sounds like it just needs to be activated. Call Sirius with the SID #, and they can send a signal. Sirius' # is 888-539-7474

It sounds like you have entered a AUX mode this is when the device tried to find audio input (for example an ipod) look for a button called Function/input or radio

Sirius S50 "No channels available"

I had the exact same problem happen to me yesterday with my S50. My guess is that the software got corrupted somehow. I fixed mine last night be reinstalling S50 software via USB cable to my PC. Note: You need My Sirius Studio application loaded on your PC. Be sure to press Exit button on My Sirius Software Ap after you reinstall S/W. Patiently wait for S50 to 100% complete before disconnecting. Then, manually turn on S50 (while holding in your hand); do NOT put in car/home dock yet. S50 will then update S/W. When this completes, now you can put in dock. I don't exactly recall, but I think the S50 indicated the dock was being updated, then it defaulted to channel 184 indicating to call Sirius to subscribe. Since I already have a subscription in place on my S50, I just pressed channel 2 (The Blend) from my remote, and then my S50 began updating all channels. Success! I'm so happy my S50 is now working again! Good luck to others experiencing same problem; hope this helps! I can only imagine the frustration trying to get help from Sirius folks for this type of problem...

My sirius reciever in my boat worked fine until this year now it wont work antenna is only two years old and it is a high quality marine antenna could it be the reciever it is hooked to a clarion radio...

Oxidation from humidity could have tarnished a connector somewhere. Make sure all connectors are clean and shiny first. It could be that the receiver is bad. A stereo shop should be able to check that for you easily.

All of a sudden the display says invalid channel and 0% updating channels sirius says the radio must be broken

I would try a different antenna first, then exchange radio if that doesn't work. You will have to 'update' the radio for about 30 minutes after you first activate it, but after 30 minutes it should be fine. Try the activation channel (channel 1) - call Sirius for a 'refresh'. After 30 minutes, your undate should be done. Turn the radio off with the pushbutton on the radio. Turn it back on - should be no more updating. If so, then there is a problem.

Best Buy hooked up my sirius radio through the fm tuner.

Yes you can my brother bought one of those after market radios and you can run it on three different channels you need to find one that has nothing on it including hiss. look in the book and it will tell you the different channels. Also Be sure you have the reciever on the dash in the center at the top for best reception or lower it tothe middle to find the best reception you can get. it is important to get it in the right place for it to work.

Lost antennae reception

either the antenna is broken, or your service was cancelled. Contact SIRIUS for your account info. Did you pay to have the new radio turned on? I believe they have a $75.00 "activation fee".

Sirius Radio Invalid Channel message

1) Do you have a Sirius account?

2) Have you called Sirius and given the serial number of that receiver?

Those are the first two things you have to do to get a Sirius receiver working. (The original owner could have changed his account to use his new receiver, if he has one.) Go to - the "activate" part - for details.
