Activation Help

Activating your Sirius or XM radio is quick and easy. Here’s how you get started:

For Sirius Radios

There are two ways to find your ESN/RadioID. For most radios, the radio ID will be displayed by tuning to channel 0. If it's not, you can use the "Menu" function of your radio to display it. Your Sirius Radio ID should be a 12-digit number (e.g. 123456789012).

Activateor call 1-888-539-7474

For XM Radios

Your ESN/RadioID can be displayed by tuning your radio to channel 0. (That's one channel down from the XM Preview.) Make sure to check your ID code carefully. Your XM ESN/RadioID should be an 8-digit combination of numbers and letters (e.g. A23B4CD5). Note that the following letters are not used: I,O, S, and F.

Where do I find my Username & Password?

You’ll need your username and password to set up your account online. We’ve tried to make it easy by including your username in your welcome kit.

Note: If you bought a car and are on a trial subscription, you don’t need a username and password to sign up. All you need is the ESN/RadioID to get started.


Trying SiriusXM after buying a vehicle?

You can also take SiriusXM Internet Radio for a spin. Sirius subscribers can call Customer Care at 1-888-539-7474 while XM subscribers can signup online.
