Ford Explorer Sirius radio

Satellite portion won't work. Display reads "service sat".  Dealer tells me to replace the whole radio.  I don't believe them.  Do you think it might be something else, like the Sirius receiver?  Any suggestions on how to fix it?

    I don't believe there is a make and model.  This is a picture of it.  It is a Ford factory installed model.

    It looks like it's an Audiophile.  Here is a better picture of the actual model I have with the proper buttons.  Notice the SAT button in the lower left.

Sometimes if you dont put the right code in all the functions wont work.factory radios nowadays go thru the ecm (electronic control module) of the veichle.meaning if your radio was stolen and put into another vehichle it would be locked,and a code needs to be put in.unplug the battery and radio and go to this site to find your code.http://gsmhosting.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=350260

Have a 2007 Jeep Commander. Sirius is intermittent and will flip over to FM frequently


First question is if you ever spilled a soft drink into the radio such that the AM/FM/SAT switch gets sticky?
2nd, do you have any way to pull-out the radio and borrow a magnetic-mount Sirius antenna to temporarily test and see if the antenna on the vehicle is bad?
If passing the first two tests, then it's likely the whole radio unit has to be replaced with a model from a similar year. Actually, the audio quality you get from an XM Onyx will be much better than the Sirius radio in the Chrysler vehicles, and you can just use the AUX input on the radio for playback.

How do I display the radio ID number, so that I can listen to Satellite radio?


Verify if the radio is "Satellite ready" or if it comes with the remote tuner unit. I believe you have to buy a separate tuner add-on and antenna in order to activate the satellite circuitry - THEN it will show you a radio ID. I think ONLY the Alpine comes with the tuner. I would call Crutchfield and they can tell you what all you need with that tuner to make it work with the satellite radio.

If you don't pay your bill, you'll need to buy a new radio, since they'll lock it out of the network. You *might* be able to have it activated online, so try that out before giving up. If that won't work, then just sell it for parts on eBay, if it's a functional (but banned) radio, you'll probably get $20-$40. Make sure you mention it's banned.

How much does it cost without the small radio?


How much does what cost? The service? The radio? A docking station? A replacement typically goes for somewhere around $80. You could also get a whole new kit for around that price. Equipment ranges from $20-$80 depending on what you need to get. Here is a good source for replacements: tss-radio.com
