Receiving XM Radio Service

If your XM Radio service has expired or you purchased your vehicle from a previous owner, you can listen to a sampling of the broadcasts available on XM Radio. With the ignition switch in the ACCESSORY (I) or ON (II) position, push the power/volume knob to turn on the audio system and press the CD/XM button. A variety of music types and styles will play.

If you decide to purchase XM Radio service, contact XM Radio at www.xmradio.com, or at 1-800-852-9696. In Canada, contact XM CANADA at www.xmradio.ca, or at 1-877-209-0079. You will need to give them your radio I.D. number and your credit card number. To get your radio I.D. number, press the TUNE bar until ‘‘0’’ appears in the display. Your I.D. will appear in the display.

After you’ve registered with XM Radio, keep your audio system in the XM radio mode while you wait for activation. This should take about 30 minutes.

While waiting for activation, make sure your vehicle remains in an open area with good reception. Once your audio system is activated, you’ll be able to listen to XM Radio broadcasts.

XM Radio will continue to send an activation signal to your vehicle for at least 12 hours from the activation request. If the service has not been activated after 36 hours, contact XM Radio. In Canada, contact XM CANADA .
