No sirius id, no presets, all cleared... activation didn't help


You need to call sirius @ 1-888-GET-SIRIUS (438-7474) and they will remotly reset the radio for you. This has happened to me twice and this is the only way i have found to fix it.

I own a Sirius Sportster 1, up until the other day it was working perfectly. It now is working as if it the service has been terminated. It does not complain of lack of signal or antenna. Everything...


They recently updated all of the channel line ups, and since then some of the older receivers have had some issues updating. I don't know that there is a fix for this, however, if you look on the back of the receiver, your SID/ESN number should be displayed there (in addition to on channel 0). If you have them resend a signal, hopefully this should correct the issue.

My Sirius radio, factory installed in a 2008 VW R32, won't activate, even after a "soft boot". Sirius mentioned having the dealer do a "hard boot". What is that?


I hope this post finds everyone well who is having difficulties with Sirius Radio's trouble shooting advice to reactivate service. I tried to reactivated my service and had experienced all the problems that everyone has had on these forums. This is what works. It took me a lot of phone calls and I want to get the word out to everyone (regardless of Make, Model or Year of Vehicle)

First, a soft reboot does nothing and there is no such things as 'reseting' the electric system in your car. Second, there is no such thing as a 'hard' reboot to your sirius radio. All a soft reboot will get you is cold legs when you have to hold your car door open for 30 seconds in the middle of winter. All a hard reboot will do is cost you a lot of hard earned money at the dealership. Best case scenario is that your dealer replaces your entire radio and charges you $500+.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO: Call Sirius Customer Service and ask for Technical Support. Explain to them you are having difficulty obtaining an activation signal. The technical support technician did the following (and it was the most intelligent thing I heard from Sirius)

1. Go turn on your Sirius Radio and tune to Channel 184.

2. The technician put a "dummy" ESN in on my account, refreshed and then re-entered my original ESN back into my account and then re-sent the activation signal. **NOTE** Make sure you write down your original ESN number before you ask to have them do step #2....there is no way for them to recover your original ESN if they put in the 'dummy' ESN and refresh.

3. Within 10 seconds of putting doing step #2, my Sirius Radio said, "Updating Channels" and worked great.

Takeaway from My Experience: I believe that once you let your Sirius Radio Service relapse and/or do not renew your subscription, a signal/frequency is sent to your radio to block service or reactivate your service. The problem must be an internal issue on Sirius where the only fix to stop this signal is to completely clear (or zero) out your original ESN, enter a dummy ESN, refresh and then re-enter your original ESN and then send the activation signal.

I hope this helps everyone.

I just bought a 2007 Dodge 3500 Laramie and signed up for Sirius radio. I gave them the 12 diget number that came up on the radio screen (channel 184) and when they tried three times to activate it nothing...


I bought a used 2008 Ram 1500 SLT Sport; satellite would stay stuck on channel 184 with no sound, etc.

Solution: Disconnect negative wire from vehicle battery; wait 1-hour then reconnect. This clears satellite radio cache (a.k.a. hard reset).

Turn on satellite radion; Call Sirius support to send activation signal. Wait on phone with tech support; may take them 2 - 3 tries to get signal to take on radio.

Tune to channel "0" that is your ESN ID. If you had it previously running, they should have it on your account and be able to retreive it for you. Hope this helps. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you further.

Sirius radio reset on dodge ram 2008


I have the same problem. When Sirius sent me a new "update" signal, I lost more channels. They don't have any idea. Did you figure out how to reset?

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!!

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.
