Just got a new to me Commander and I'm having some Sirius problems.

They've sent the activation signal a few times and it's not coming on. I have the antenna on top, the SAT option on my REC navigation system, and it's on the preview channel with the number to call Sirius, the only thing that seems odd to me is that there's no sound on the preview channel?

Any ideas?

If you are still on the preview channel amd they have sent the signal several times then there is something wrong with your head unit. Make sure sirius has the correct VIN number for your vehicle and that nothing is blocking the antenna (like the cross bars if installed), if it still does not work then the problem is with the radio itself.

I guess it was just a glitch in their system. I called them yesterday and she sent the signal at least twice with my radio on and with a clear line of sight, but it never did take the signal and I never got audio on the preview channel. I'm just putting this out there because a lot of people get worried when they don't get the preview channel, and certainly sometimes that's a bad thing, but in my case I called them back this morning and I was up and running within a few seconds.

I think the girl I talked to last night was new, maybe that was the problem. When I asked her when they closed she said they were open 24/7, but when I called back later their system told me they had closed.

Thanks again.

In our systems, there is no audio on the preview channel if Sirius isn't activated, very annoying.

When you called them were you on a bluetooth ear piece or on a bluetooth equipped phone. When I activated mine we did it 2 times and it didn't work. The third time he had me shut off the bluetooth function on my phone and it worked. Also instead of the VIN he had me get the radio's code number.

Were you able to get you radio activated?
