Trying to locate mother's account by SID on car installed receive

In an effort to activate an account for my brother on my mother's sirrius account, a sirrius representative said to turn her can installed receiver to 0 to identify the SID number of her receiver - but 0 is not displaying the SID number on her sirrius car radio. Is there another way to identify her account or locate the sirrius number on her receiver which was installed at the time of purchase - some time ago. Thank you!

You can lookup the SID on Sirius.com if the reciever has been activated. Customer service should have the number as well if you know the phone number used during registration.

How do I deactivate my Model SL 10? I'm giving it away, but don't want my account being used.


Give sirius a call. You'll need the account password to deactivate the radio. If it's lifetime activation, then just let it stay active. The new owner will not be able to access your account, or view any information about it.

2009 dodge ram , fm,am,cd,all work fine on radio. but when I hit satelite radio it shows channel 184 and there is nothing.


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

The SID # you need to activate that is displayed in two places. On the unit itself, and on channel 0. Try switching to channel 0 once in Sirius mode, and the SID # should be displayed.

If it is reading "ACQUIRING SIGNAL" WHAT CAN THIS MEAN??


This typicall represents a failed antenna with either a loose connection or failed wire to the antenna. The "Acquiring Signal" indicates the receiver is trying to locate and decipher a signal from a sattelite. THe antenna is your first diagnostic. After that the receiver is the culprit. When your receiver is Activated or Authorized it is given a "key" to decipher the sattelite signals If it loses the "key" you can try and have Sirius reinitialize by contacting support. If they cannot send the signal and get the proper "Key" loaded its a defect in the receiver functionality.

Installation question ??


With the CNET you do mthis, CD Changer to the sirius input, srius output to the Clarion input. It's just a "daisy chain". I hope I understood you right, if not, you can yell at me :-).

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 http://www.sirius.com/install - the "activate" part - for details.

Sportster 4


Dick,
Did u go to the menu to get the Sirius ID# or ESN# or did u get it from the box or back of the unit itself?? I used to work in activations department for sirius and the most common reason that a plug and play unit would not activate is a mismatch in ID #'s. I have seen units with one ID number, but the box or the back of the radio actually being labeled with a different number. By the way,only one signal can be sent to the radio every 20 minutes or so and most reps you talk to don't even know this. So after sending the first signal, all they are doing is clicking a button on the screen and getting a message back that says "Duplicate Provision" meaning that the signal cannot be sent because it is already sent. If you were hearing audio on channel 184 when the signal was sent and you made no adjustments during this time, and the SID or ESN number is the correct one for your unit, and the radio doesn't activate, I would get a replacement. But this never happens in my experience unless there are other signs of defect.

Hope this helps!!
