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.

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: My Sirius radio, factory installed in a 2008 VW

I hope this post finds everyone well who is having difficulties with Sirius Radio's trouble shooting advice to reactivate service. I tried to reactivated my service and had experienced all the problems that everyone has had on these forums. This is what works. It took me a lot of phone calls and I want to get the word out to everyone (regardless of Make, Model or Year of Vehicle)

First, a soft reboot does nothing and there is no such things as 'reseting' the electric system in your car. Second, there is no such thing as a 'hard' reboot to your sirius radio. All a soft reboot will get you is cold legs when you have to hold your car door open for 30 seconds in the middle of winter. All a hard reboot will do is cost you a lot of hard earned money at the dealership. Best case scenario is that your dealer replaces your entire radio and charges you $500+.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO: Call Sirius Customer Service and ask for Technical Support. Explain to them you are having difficulty obtaining an activation signal. The technical support technician did the following (and it was the most intelligent thing I heard from Sirius)

1. Go turn on your Sirius Radio and tune to Channel 184.

2. The technician put a "dummy" ESN in on my account, refreshed and then re-entered my original ESN back into my account and then re-sent the activation signal. **NOTE** Make sure you write down your original ESN number before you ask to have them do step #2....there is no way for them to recover your original ESN if they put in the 'dummy' ESN and refresh.

3. Within 10 seconds of putting doing step #2, my Sirius Radio said, "Updating Channels" and worked great.

Takeaway from My Experience: I believe that once you let your Sirius Radio Service relapse and/or do not renew your subscription, a signal/frequency is sent to your radio to block service or reactivate your service. The problem must be an internal issue on Sirius where the only fix to stop this signal is to completely clear (or zero) out your original ESN, enter a dummy ESN, refresh and then re-enter your original ESN and then send the activation signal.

I hope this helps everyone.

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.

2009 dodge ram , fm,am,cd,all work fine on radio. but when I hit satelite radio it shows channel 184 and there is nothing.


Is there audio on 184? It sounds like it just needs to be activated. Call Sirius with the SID #, and they can send a signal. Sirius' # is 888-539-7474

All of a sudden the display says invalid channel and 0% updating channels sirius says the radio must be broken


I would try a different antenna first, then exchange radio if that doesn't work. You will have to 'update' the radio for about 30 minutes after you first activate it, but after 30 minutes it should be fine. Try the activation channel (channel 1) - call Sirius for a 'refresh'. After 30 minutes, your undate should be done. Turn the radio off with the pushbutton on the radio. Turn it back on - should be no more updating. If so, then there is a problem.

2009 Escape. When I purchased this year, I mostly listened to regular radio, which showed artist and title in display. Now, after playing Sirius a lot (which shows text info on display), the info no...


Does it do this on all radio stations? Some stations don't broadcast that information, some do. Also there may be an info button somewhere on the radio, try pushing that to see if it comes up.

Sirius radio says to call 888-539-subscribe


Umm.. Call the number?

Sounds like the subscription is out.

Could be clerical on their side, could be any number of things. But that's pretty simple. It says call the number, so call the number.

They may not be able to speak to you since you're not the account holder, so you might need to have your sister call, in which case, provide the serial number of the unit to your sister and have them call.

Eclipse CD2000 has no sound from a cd or sirius... radio works


If you have an amplifier hooked up make sure that the correct blue wire on the harness is connected. One of the wires is the remote amp turn-on, the other is for a power antenna. That would be why your radio plays through your speakers, the power antenna wire' when the source is set to radio, sends a 12 volt signal. That would turn on your amp if thats the way that its hooked up.
