No this means you can control Sirius radio with your car stereo, but you still require A sirius external device. In other words your looking for simply a Sirius add-on Kit for your stereo, If the kit comes with controller, which most do, then the fact your new car stereo is Sirius Ready, makes the Sirius controller obsolete. I hope this helps.
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
With the newer cars most radios have a theft deterrent device built into the radio, and if they steal your system it will not work in another jeep/car the dealer knows the unlock code, some charge to unlock the radio some don't.
That's why when doing electrical work on a car/truck etc. You have to have 12V DC power to the battery terminals all the time or you will loose the code and then only the dealer can help you unlock the radio. HTH.
First off who installed the radio?
If you or a friend did you ned to make sure that 12+ always is supplied to the radio and is hooked to the appropriate wire on the radio. If it does have 12+ always and it is hooked up correctly a replacement of the radio is in order, however I bet the wireing to the radio is crossed or the radio itself is uncorrectly installed.
The reason is the accessory and 12+ always wire has been crossed or was never there to begin with.
The stereo's ESN Feature has activated. High-end Eclipse stereo's have a feature to prevent theft where if the battery is disconnected from the stereo, it must be "unlocked" with a "key" CD, that comes with the CD player but can later be changed to a personal CD of the owner. You would need to either call Eclipse and see if they can de-activate it (you'll need to ship it to them, if they even do it, because it is a security feature after all.) Or you need to talk to the last owner of the vehicle and have them unlock it.
I have this problem almost everytime I have to do it. It's such a rare occasion. If I remember correctly, just press and hold the key that moves you to the next number... the >>| key, I believe. After a couple seconds it'll beep & open up (provided you have the correct code).
