Default Sirius radio

I bought my truck used & have no real details on it. With that in mind if my factory radio has a ESN/SID code does that mean it has everything needed to get Sirius radio?

Do you have the satellite antenna on top of your roof? If you do, then you have satellite radio.

Yeah I have one, but I've tried to activate the service twice now. The radio only tunes to 184 with no volume.

Make sure you have a Sirius tuner in the truck, it would be in the upper dash area above the glove box, it will look like this..

Just looked, I have what appears to be that little box, its cover by a metal plate. The connections look to be the same as shown in your picture

Then it should work. Is sirius sending you the signal after activation?

I've had them send the signal twice, each time they said it could take up to 15 minutes. I had the system on during each time & still nothing. I saw somewhere on the web about maybe having to reset the system by disconnecting the battery?

I would keep calling them, or perhaps call the dealership to make sure all of the equipment is functioning properly.

I don't guess it can hurt anything to disconnect the battery for a few minutes, then reconnecting it. I don't know that it'll do anything to fix your problem, but I don't think it'll hurt anything either.

I had a bit of trouble with my wife's Challenger when I reactivated. The person on the other end of the phone had to reset the system and resend the signal a few times before we got it to work.

good luck
