Antenna hookup 2007 dodge ram

Is there an adapter that will utilize the factory sirius antenna already installed in my factory radio in a 2007 dodge ram 1500? So I don't have to have the antenna stick on my dash like the GPS is?

    I have a 2006 Dodge 3500 4x4 truck. It has the factory radio and satellite antenna mounted at the center rear of the cab. I listen to Sirius radio all the time with no problems except for when I put on my overhead camper. Then the signal becomes intermittent. Is there a way to relocate the factory antenna or add an auxiliary antenna to alleviate this problem?

    same problem

    2007 dodge 3500 Ram, I lose Sirius service when I put camper on.

    It appears that the Sirius connector at the back of the radio is a 10-pin connector; don't know if I need an adapter or if the actual receiver is located elsewhere on the truck (??)

Just take the fakra connector (plastic piece) off and it will be just like the sirius antenna end. Then buy a 10ft extention cable... I've just order mine and will have pics when done

    Brian Webb brianrwebb@ca.rr.com will make you a cable that will hook up to the end of your factory connector at the tuner. Just email him and tell him your vehicle and what length cable you need. I have a 07 also that I've done. If you would like pics email me mikebradyjr@yahoo.com Good luck

First test to see if you really do have a factory Sirius antenna. The dealer will tell you the car is Sirius ready, but that does not mean you have the antenna. Your radio should have a "SAT" button on it....pushing it should bring up the Sirius emergency weather station, which will play even if your sirius isn't activated. If pushing the "SAT" button does not do this, then you simply have a "Sirius Ready" factory radio, and no factory Antenna and/or tuner. In this case, my advice would be to either mount a sirius antenna on the roof and get a starmate or something, or go to Dodge and spend upwards of $700 for the factory sirius antenna and tuner. If you car does have a factory sirius antenna....then just call 888-539-7474, and activate the sirius that is already in the car, no need to add anything. Hope this helps or at least clears things up.

I have a 2014 dodge ram pickup with xm version of sirius xm. In northern canada xm signal is horrible bit sirius works flawlessly. Is there a upgrade to switch to sirius signal without adding a stand alone...


The 2012 Dodge Caliber had a Sirius radio instead of XM - BUT - you will have to check if it has a "FAST" or a "SLOW" "BUSS SPEED" - that is very important that the radio you replace it with has the correct buss speed. Sirius will only work a little while longer as they are eventually going to phase out their overhead satellites for a geostationary satellite like XM. XM has the better sound than Sirius - if you can receive them. If you can't find a factory replacement from 2012, then BestBuy still sells a Stratus Sirius radio - and you can probably even fish-out the antenna wire that you already have for use with the plug and play add-on Status. Good luck - let me know if you have more questions.

I have a 2009 Dodge Ram pickup with factory sirius radio. When I put my cab over camper on it I lose the sirius radio signal. Is there a external antenna that will work with setup . I can mount it on top...


We had the same issue with our 2007 Dodge Ram truck. We use an external antenna when we have the camper on. You can buy these at various places on line. Get the car antenna not the home antenna. It magnetically mounts onto the truck so we put it on our hood and routed the antenna wire through the passenger side door. Our satellite box is behind the glove box. Remove the glove box and look up in the cavity. We were able to just unplug the factory antenna and plug the external antenna in. It's easy to switch back too. Just be careful with the antenna wire because it's fragile and any little bit of damage makes it useless.

Antenna interface - Sirius to XM, Dodge


connector should fit - provided that there is ONLY one connector for the SatRad and not two.
You might have to trim off some yellow, or pink or green plastic, but the metal connector should fit.

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.

The antenna should plug into the Stilleto car kit if your Audi is equipped with Sirius already. Otherwise you will have to use another Sirius antenna.

Sirius Antenna


You may have to go to your nearest electronics store or Sirius vendor to see if they have an extension cord...as a Sirius customer i never seen one though......Your best bet is to remount the antenna to the forward part of the roof, towards the windshield.

Connect sirius fm adapter to 2008 honda civic sedan radio


You should use the direct FM box to get the static to go away. You unplug the antenna from the radio, plug the antenna lead from the box into the radio, the antenna line plugs into the box. You will have a mini jack that plugs into your radio or dock.

This way you can switch it on any station to get rid of the static.

You shouldn't need to take the dashboard out to get to the radio. Usually you have to take the trim pieces in front of the radio to get the antenna line out.

Sometime you can reach it from the back of the radio if there is enough clearance to get cak there.

Sirius satellite radio


You will need to get another sat antenna, and locate it somewhere either above the camper, or where the camper does not obstruct the antenna. Any store that sells sat radio equipment (Fry's, Best Buy, etc) will have the micro antenna. Install it either on the hood of the truck, or on top of the camper. You will need to run the antenna to the rear of the dash. They make Y couplers that will allow you to run both the OEM antenna and the extermal antenna at the same time, and it will not hurt the system to have both wired in at the same time.
