No, it's the Sirius Tuner. If it's 2 or so years old, there's a bad ground on the antenna port pc board. If your tuner is roughly 6"x6"x1" it's the one. The new tuners will not have this issue and are considerably better built. (DEI) is the manufacturer of the new unit. If you don't mind rebuilt, you can save 40 or 50 on a repaired tuner. The repaired tuners are very reliable since they upgraded the board with one that's durable. Hope this helps

in the picture is the antenna jack the one attached to the rolled up cable?
does it look like this

if so radioshack or something similar sells that jack or a car audio shop

you could just strip the wires and wrap them round the terminals

or find someone that you know that knows how to use a soldering iron and solder it back together
or you can get an soldering iron and do it yourself they are not that expensive now and im sure the people in the shops will tell you how to use it
if not then look on google on how to use a soldering iron there will be millions of pages explaining how

They make a special antenna that mounts on the the mirror mount for the big rigs. You need a big antenna, as the regular one isn't going to work very well on a big rig. Many full service truck stop stores have the big rig antennas. Try that first. You might have better luck with XM than Sirius too,

Sorry--problem not solved but I thought your site was free. My error.

Are you missing the center pin, by chance (which often snaps if the plug isn't lined up correctly or if you wiggle the lead to connect or disconnect)?
I fixed mine by inserting a 1.5CM piece of very thin but stiff copper wire into the dimple. You may have to 'coax' it a bit with needle nose pliers.

First...you still need a sirius antenna plugged into the device. If you just started using this you may just need to resend the signal. Just call the sirius/xm people and follow the recorded prompts to send a new satellite signal. Then make sure you are parked somewhere that it is receiving a good signal and wait. It could take up to 30 minutes to reset completely.

I had the same problem. If your radio is a kit and not factory installed in your vehicle it could be the magnetic antenna on top of your car. I had mine for about two years and from moving the radio around, or docking and undocking it, the wire from the antenna broke. It was not cut all the way through but it was enough to cause it to loose the signal. Check your antenna where it plugs into the back of the unit.

Tune to channel "0" that is your ESN ID. If you had it previously running, they should have it on your account and be able to retreive it for you. Hope this helps. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you further.

Not gonna work, sorry to say. You need the little two-piece "XM Ready" tuner unit (with antenna) to plug into your XM Ready receiver. Sell the Sirius Connect Home Tuner and buy the XM unit. XM unit still available at some Best Buy stores.

Tuner needs to be replaced. Where the antenna is input into the board, it has a bad solder joint. If it's older than a year that's the problem. It has been a BIG! issue with SIRIUS & XM. Sorry for bad news but I hope this helps.

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.

Channel 210 is MLB Home Plate, which is part of the "Best of XM" package. If you haven't subscribed to Best of XM, which costs extra on top of your Sirius base subscription, then you cannot receive that channel.

Additionally, only certain radios are "Best of XM" compatible.. The fact that your car is a 2009 model.. While I don't know what radio it has in it.. I would assume it is a newer model radio that does have Best of XM capabilities, so the problem is most likely that you do not have the Best of XM package.

I have a 3 year old Sportster 2 replay unit that worked perfect until 1 month ago. I posted my problem on this website a day before you did with this same problem. I googled to no end and even spoke to Sirius who wasn't willing to replace my unit at no charge since it was out of warranty. I found an unusual solution on the internet that worked for me. I place my receiver in the freezer for at least 20 minutes (this was recommended by a guy somewhere on the internet with the same problem). I have actually left it in freezer overnight too. This has solved my problem. It is the craziest thing but I thought I would try it before I resorted to replacing all my accessories and receiver since Sirius was less than cooperative with the issue. Anyway, hope this helps.
