Your best bet is to call the manufacturer or go to their web site and click on support and search your problem in their data base, other owners may have had the same issue.

Can my sirius sportster 2 won't receive channel 210


Yep, new radio. The old Sirius radios won't go above 184 (most won't even get above 145) and the old XM radios won't go past 256, so to get the "Xtra" channels you want a new XM radio like the Onyx PLUS, or The XM Edge - both will give you not only all the regular channels, but an eXtra 20 channels or so that you can only get online or on a new 2.0 radio. Let me know how it works out for you. Regards, Engineer Scott

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.

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.

Satellite radio (REF) not connecting with Sirius.


Do you have a paid subscription? IF you do, call and have them with your radio's serial number and ask them to 'refresh' your radio to restore the other channels. If you only have channel 184 and CH1, it sounds like you haven't purchased a monthly subscription yet.

Try finding the reset. It's usually a pinhole.

Hope it works for you after 3 long waiting periods on the phone!

Clarion SIRIUS Radio Receiver - Not Receiving All Subscribed Channels


My DX445 does the same thing. Here's my method for fixing it, it should work for any similar Clarion receiver:

1. If possible, make sure the radio is turned off when disconnecting the battery. If the radio turns itself on when the vehicle is restarted (for example after jump starting or battery disconnect for a few seconds only), turn the radio off.

2. Disconnect the battery by removing the negative battery cable from the battery. Leave it disconnected.

NOTE: Car batteries can be dangerous things. If you're unsure how to do this safely, get an experiences mechanic to help you.

3. Reset the radio. On my radio this is done by removing the faceplated, and pressing a tiny button for 30 seconds. Your radio may be different.

4. After waiting at least 20 minutes, reconnect the battery.

5. My radio displayes 'System Check -- Press Power'. After pressing the power button, the display reverts to the clock.

6. Turn on the radio. It should work fine on the broadcast bands.

7. Select 'Sirius'. The radio should display 'Updating'. Don't touch anything until the radio finishes its update phase. When it's done, it should tune to Sirius channel 1 and play as normal.

8. This should restore normal tuning. reset your presets and preferences.

What seems to happen is that the radio gets stuck in a 'Category Select' condition, but not all the categories will load, and manual tuning will not allow, say, Radio Classics to play when the radio is stuck in Pop mode.

On occasion (maybe 1 time out of 10), the radio hangs while doing the 'updating' in Sirius mode. If this happens, just shut off the radio and start over. I've never had to do the brute force reset more than twice since I stumbled on this method.
