SOURCE: 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.

Check the fuse in the power to the dock. They blow out all the time.

SOURCE: Clarion SIRIUS Radio Receiver - Not Receiving All Subscribed Channels

I am having the same problem, i was able to manually get about 37 channels by holding down the BND button which changed the mode to manual tuning which allowed me to manually move to individual stations. By going bak and forth I was able to add more stations, but once I got to channel 38 (which is not a used channel) I could not add more channels. I don't know if this will help you get a few more channels. I am going to try to call clarion to see if they can help, if you get it fixed, please post what you did. Thanks and hopefully we can get this fixed

SOURCE: Getting into a Starmate ST2R

I got in!!!! i first removed all 4 screws. I then used my pen knife (or the like...i.e. a very thin blade) and inserted it on the right side (rounded end). Insert in an upward direction so that the blade ends up under the gray (top side) plastic. I then very slowly worked it toward the bottom of the unit using a slight prying motion. It popped open a little for me - just enough so that i could more easily work the blade in the other direction and pop more open. eventually i was able to get the whole gray part off. Be carefull because as you begin taking it apart, the rubber buttons may fall out - no big deal because they are just in there via pressure anyway. (for me, very little damage was caused by using the blade - barely noticable)

Once the top is separated from the bottom, be careful...the actual circuit board is no longer attached to the black placstic backing, but it will not come apart due to an internal copper wire (it may be the fm transmitter antenna). It is secured to the black plastic via plastic tabs that appear to be folded over on the wire - and if you pull it out, it looks like you may not get the wire back the way it should be.

anyway, for my purposes, i did not need to remove the copper wire.....i positioned the circiut board far enough away from the black plastic in order to get a soldering iron in there to re-attach one of the "legs" of the 12V plug. I just got a drop of solder on the iron and placed in on the leg. I have not tried it out yet, but it seems to have re-attached securely


Hope this helps.

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.

Activated Sirius service, unit says "no channels available"


Turn the unit on for about 15 minutes. Cycle through the channels, starting from channel 1. You won't have to go through all of them, but this should get it working. If not, go to your account online, or call SIRIUS and have them refresh your signal.

Disconnect negative wire from vehicle battery; wait minimum of 1-hour, then reconnect.

Turn on satellite radio, call Sirius tech support to have them resend activation signal. Stay on line with them since it may take them 2 - 3 tries.

I have a 2008 dodge ram slt and cant get information displayed on the screen,song names and such through sirius radio.Do they all display or maybe the model i have dosent.Thanks Albert.


The information as to what is playing is part of the data stream sent by Sirius, and I've never seen a satellite receiver that does not display this information. If this is a factory unit, information on its operation should be in your owners manual (and your dealer is there to help you). If this is an aftermarket radio, you ought to have an owners manual which should describe how to change the information displayed on the faceplate. Either way, the unit should give you full information about the data stream it is receiving. If not, something is amiss and may fall under warranty coverage.

Can't get XM channels


Goto sirius.com. You will need to access you account and find out if your radio is upgradeable for XM channels. You can find that out once you try to add xm to your account.

If it isn't you can get a free or a discounted radio from them to do it by calling customer service up. They do that for existing customers.

I only get channel 184 - help!


Call Sirius and verify your account is still active. Also, on the S50 make sure you can see your ESN number. If you can, go to the menu and Reset Channels. If you can't do that on your car kit, try it on your home kit.

Sirius Problem


The sirius unit does not have any channels in the unit.
You need to refresh the radio (XM allows you to do it online, I dont know about sirius) and leave it powered on for about an hour for it to update the channel list.

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.
