Can't get Sirius Freeview in Expedition

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sirius XM is having a freeview from 2/1 to 2/14. I got an email on it (actually several). I cancelled all my subscriptions in the fall but thought I'd listen during the freeview to see if I really miss it that much. It works in our XM Toyota and Sirius Fusion, but not in our Sirius Expedition. Just sits on channel 184 with a scroll "Call Sirius" while a promo plays in the background. Also in the cars its working in only certain channels are turned on. No religous channels and some of the talk channels are missing. Anyone else having a similar experience.

hey there junior,
you can try to max reset by removing power from the expedition's sirius receiver for a minute , or remove positive battery cable for a while . since the audio plays ok that rules out possibility of antenna issue.
also if you are nice to the service reps on the other side of the planet I bet they would gladly/specifically enable the ESN for your expedition, as well as sending you a pallet of free sirius stuff like internet wifi radios which they are 'giving away' lately and are very nice little 'wifi radios' indeed. Wifi-radio has "re-sold" me on sirius/XM, for the low low cost of only $3 per month !
best regards,
/e

Also make sure the channels you're missing aren't included in the free preview, not all channels are included. I think there's a list somewhere with all the channels in the preview.

I looked further in the email (had just read title) and it only includes 60 channels. Surprised since they are trying to lure customers back. Whose idea is it to lure you back by letting you listen to 60 "selected" channels. Oh well thanks for the replies.
