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.

Changed the battery on my 2008 dodge ram slt 1500, now tha radio doesnt work,what did I do


this might have an anti-theft radio that when the battery power is taken away the radio goes into lockout mode. there is a code that needs to be programed to get it to work. check your owners manual it maybe in there or go to the dealer. you can try a radio shop they maybe able to help.

2012 toyota highlander sirius radio constantly loss of signal


I have similar issue. Signal easily lost whenever there isn't a truly clear path to sky. My old cheapie XM radio add-on was MUCH better. I'm taking this back to my dealer tomorrow for other issues with the "top of the line" DVD/NAV/XM system. Such as it won't read the data on most CD's and display names of tracks (maybe 1 CD will display out of 10); and the way the radio truncates the Sirius/XM titles, etc. to much less than the full available screen (my cheapie add on did a better job). For $2,000+ bucks this is a very disappointing audio/GPS system. Sound is mediocre as well. This must be a huge profit center for Toyota -- cheap components + high price = $$$ for them.

My 2008 ford focus sirius radio stopped working. sirius tried to reprogram, but it didn't work


Did Sirius resend a signal? If it is displaying their number it is likely that your subscription needs to be updated. The fact that it displays their info means it is likely receiving a signal. If it said "no tuner" or nothing at all, it would likely be the tuner. You can resend a signal online here:

If that does not work, replacement kits are available here:

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.

I read the manual and found out that the reason the track title information does not display is because you need to set the text scroll setting to manual.

Sirius radio reset on dodge ram 2008


I have the same problem. When Sirius sent me a new "update" signal, I lost more channels. They don't have any idea. Did you figure out how to reset?

Intermittant display of song title and artist


I believe it's actually a firmware issue with the SIR-KEN1. I havethe same setup and have the same exact problem. I have to cycle thru my "SRC" button and get back to Sirius for it to work. Not a happy camper. I read on the Sirius Backstage forums about the firmware, although I have written Directed Electronics (SIR-KEN1 manufacturer) and never received a response.
