    MULTI MODEL - SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO ACTIVATION - SERVICE TIP

    NOTE: This bulletin replaces 09-019/05. Please update your records accordingly.

    BULLETIN NOTE This bulletin supersedes the previous bulletin 09-019/05, issued on 10/05/05. The APPLICABLE MODEL(S)/VINS, DESCRIPTION, and REPAIR PROCEDURE have been revised.

    APPLICABLE MODEL(S)/VINS

    ^ The models shown are equipped with Sirius Satellite Radio Kit


    DESCRIPTION

    To verify proper installation of Port or Dealer installed Sirius Satellite Radio Kit and to activate Sirius Satellite Radio service, perform the Activation Pre-Check. Vehicles with Sirius Satellite Radio Kits can be activated by the dealer or the customer.

    REPAIR PROCEDURE

    ACTIVATION PRE-CHECK

    Confirm the kit installation was performed correctly by turning the radio ON and pressing the SAT button.

    ^ If test channel 184 appears on the display and advertisement audio is being broadcast from Sirius, the radio is ready for subscription activation.

    ^ If nothing occurs after pressing the SAT button with the radio ON and the vehicle parked outside with no obstructions of any kind so as not to block the satellite signal to antenna, then troubleshooting will need to be performed on the installation and/or kit components.


    ACTIVATION

    1. Be prepared to provide vehicle VIN and ESN # to Sirius.

    ^ Port Installation: If Satellite Radio Kit was installed at the Port, the 12-digit ESN # should be recorded on the last page of the Satellite Radio Kit "Owners Manual" found in the glove box.

    ^ Dealer Installation: If Satellite Radio Kit was dealer installed, the ESN # can be found on the Receiver itself, or on the Shipping Box.


    In either Port or Dealer installed cases, the ESN # can be retrieved from the radio display. To obtain the ESN # directly from the radio, follow Steps a-d:

    a. Turn the radio ON.

    b. Press the SAT button.

    c. Press and hold the 'DISP/ESN' button for more than 1.5 seconds.

    NOTE: The display will show the first 6 or 8 digits of the ESN # and the remaining 6 or 4 digits will be displayed by turning the 'Tune or Text' knob clockwise.

    d. If not already done so, record the ESN # on the last page of the Satellite Radio Kit "Owner's Manual".


    2. Contact Sirius to activate satellite radio service.

    ^ Dealer activation - call Sirius at 1-888-539-7474 and provide VIN and ESN #.

    ^ Customer activation - instruct customer to call Sirius at 1-888-539-7474 and provide the VIN and ESN #.


    3. To activate satellite radio service, follow Steps a-d.

    a. Park vehicle outside with no obstructions of any kind so as not to block the satellite signal to antenna.

    b. Turn radio ON.

    c. Press the SAT button to enter SAT mode.

    d. Tune to channel 184 and wait for activation to complete.
