Radio activation

Activating your SiriusXM radio is quick and easy. To get started you will need your ESN/RadioID and a credit card.

For vehicles that are already equipped with Sirius or XM radios you can find your ESN/RadioID by inputting your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Try our VIN lookup tool.

What’s an ESN/RadioID and where can I find it?

Each satellite radio has its very own ESN/RadioID. You’ll need this number to set up your account. There are 2 ways to find your ESN/RadioID. For most radios, the RadioID will be displayed by tuning to channel 0. If it’s not, you can use the “Menu” function of your radio to display it. (Note that the letters I, O, S and F are not used).
