How to get Sirius option to work on the Clarion radio in a 2013 Greyhawk?

Hello out there, I have a new 2013 Greyhawk 31FK. While I was playing with the radio/nav system today I realized that
the radio seemed to have Sirius radio option on it. I have been trying to figure out how to get the Sirius ID from the radio
so I can call Sirius and start a subscription.
The dealer didn't point this option out on the delivery day.

Has anyone out there had any experience getting their radio working with Sirius?

Thank you.

Robb Strawson

With XM, you tune the XM radio to channel "0" and the radio displays the radio ID; maybe its the same for Sirius? Does your radio have a Sirius antenna?

Thank you for the quick reply. I had already tried the channel "0" input and no ID came up. Not sure about the antenna, I am assuming
it might as the radio has a gps and it works fine. Also when you call up the menu page, only the radio options that are available on the radio
light up, and the Sirius/XM is one that lights up.

Some radio units are "satellite ready" but don't have all the equipment required to actually be a satellite radio; there may be another electronic box that needs to be installed. Did your dealer give you a stack of manuals and instructions? Maybe a manual for your radio was included. Or, if you know the model number of the radio, maybe you could download a manual from the internet.

Maybe someone who has this radio will post and clue us in.

That is one thing that erked me as well. The dealer did not activate the free Sirrus/XM trial period on our unit. In the pile of docs and books you will find a rather thick radio owners manual. It should be in there how to access the ID. This is just one of many things my dealer did not adequately do on the walk through prep when I purchased.

I went through this two years ago and what I could not figure out is how to install the antenna on top of the Greyahwk in a professional manner with out tearing out the interior walls, no such luck. Yes the radio is "satellite ready" but getting the antenna installed is impossible. My dealer also had no clue about the radio.
Finally just gave up and plug in the iPod and listen to music.
Jayco sould just install the whole system "complete" system.
If you find away let us know.

Website says to go to the Sirrius screen, press the [key] to display the keypad, Enter "0" and press "Ok" this will display the radio id.
If this does not bring up a radio ID, it may not have the module connected. Look on top of your coach, near the front cap seem between the front cap and rear section. the antennae should be there. If you do not have one there, the module may not have been installed. If the antennae is there, you may have a bad module connected to the radio.

I think you will find that the radio is XM/SIRIUS ready which means you can add the XM/SIRIUS receiver and antenna. It does not normally come with the motorhome. It is cheaper to buy the XM xpress or similar you can then buy a 2nd vehicle kit and use it in the motorhome and your toad or another car since you don't drive both at the same time.
