First I'd like to say that I'm new to the Forum and have been the owner of a White EX for 8 days now (purchased on Memorial day which was a Monday). So far I've been pretty happy with the car but I've had problems with (just) the Sirius radio ever since I bought it.

The very first day the free 3 month deal was activated and everything was good to go, UNTIL the very next day in which it stopped working altogether. I called Sirius and had them "ping it" with a signal and it worked UNTIL Wednesday, called Sirius again and resent the signal and worked good UNTIL Thursday (at this point I'm getting irritated thinking it was Sirius' service that was the problem), so I called again and had them resend the signal and it worked UNTIL Friday morning (Now I'm pissed). On this day I turned it on and the receiver simply said "Sirius Loading". I turned it off and on several times but got nothing. I called Sirius after work to see if they could help but they couldn't detect reception from the radio itself. So as I was already heading home for the day and the dealership was on the way I stopped in and told the service department what was going on and they said bring it in sometime next week and they'd take a look at it.

Well that was today and when I picked it up the manager told me that the technicians couldn't fix the radio and that they'd have to order a new one and would call me when they got it in to have it replaced. Good deal.

So my question is: Has anyone else had a problem with their Sirius portion of their radio? (The AM/FM portion works great) Hopefully they fix the issue...... I'll keep you guys updated here either way. Rant off. :)

Thanks for the heads up on that. One would think that the technicians would check things like that first anyway. I'm not gonna complain about a new radio though. :)
