Trouble with Sirius

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble getting my Sirius satellite radio to work on my used 2008 Edge I bought 2 years ago. The dealer said the car was equipped with all the equipment but just needed to be re-activated for the Sirius to work (the car even has the small sticker on the window indicating this). Until now I never used Sirius, but I recently decided to get the service. As I was trying to activate the service, I couldn't get the Radio ID per the instructions from Ford and Sirius (i.e., hold AUX and Preset 1), but Sirius was able to find the radio via the VIN # and activate the radio. However, I cannot get the radio to tune/switch into the satellite mode. The instructions/guides all say to press AUX repeatedly to tune from AUX, SAT1, SAT2, SAT3. I can only get it into AUX mode - not any of the SAT tuners. Any ideas as to what might be wrong?

Was the OEM radio swapped out for another one?

If you have the stock full-screen Navigation stereo system, on the "Media" page there should be, across the top of the screen, user device, FM1, FM2, AM, CD, and SM.

 

Press the SM button on the screen to tune to the Sirius.

The trouble with Sirus is that the audio quality is a joke. It sounds like streaming music with a 56k modem.
