From what i knew about sirius radios- there's like millions of radios. They dont want to and CANT send the "mike's radio is allowed to work" all the time. Even if it was just a few bits a radio there would be millions and millions of bits wasted sending "good to go" signals all the time- probably like several channels worth or music would have to go bye bye. So they send a signal tht "mikes radio is allowed to work for 90 days from NOW" and then they dont need to hit your radio for another 90 days. (the actual length of time is supposedly a closely guarded secret) When the radio gets the signal it has a special place in memory that it knows to keep how long it's good for. But they know you might be parked in a garage when the signal goes back out in 89 days again so they send it much more often giving you more time. Might be a few times a day. If you make a change to your account or go to the link to "hit" your radio they blast the signal quickly a few times and then put you back in rotation. If you cancel service they also mix in a bunch of "tell mikes radio it isn't allowed anymore" signals.

Assuming xm's system is similar it's crazy that your radio would need to get a "hit" several times in one day. It should be go for days, weeks, or maybe months at a time once "hit".

My only GUESS- is are you lucky enough to park ina garage all the time? Supposedly the radio tries to listen for a good to go signal all the time even when "off".

Have you tried the link for a "Hit" while parked outdoors? (maybe even with the radio on?)- maybe that would give you a good to go signal for a while. Good luck.
My GC is only garaged at night. I've been on the phone with Sirius tech support and their sat techs. The times I've had Sirius try to send the reactivation signal I had the vehicle outdoors, running, radio on and following their instructions while they supposedly sent it. I had no visual indication that the radio ever received it.

I was told by Sirius that it could be a radio issue, in particular with the XM receiver itself. My dealer is aware of the reloading issue but I plan on talking to them specifically about the possible receiver issue on my next service visit. LOL... I'm not holding my breath for any resolution.

I'm also going to try getting a reactivation signal sent to my radio ID using the Sirius website.

Thanks for your help!

Having Sirius send a reactivation signal to my radio ID didn't fix the current problem.

Oh well...
wait- it's not giving you the unsubscribed message- it's saying "loading"?

again- no expert- but 2 thoughts come to mind.

With Sirius radios (dont know if XM based are the same)- occasionally the radios need to download new channel lists and the like. that can take several minutes of perfect signal. Again like the "go to go" signal they dont transmit that data all the time so they can spend more bits on music. So if it gets interupted it might not try again for some time and then it will start all over again. I wonder if you parked out in the open without driving for a while and left the car running if it would just download once and for all? (just a WAG)

second though is "loading" is a phrase the uconnect software uses. Maybe you have a fubared uconnect install. Do you have the latest firmware update? If so a shot in the dark would be to factory reset the radio in case it has some corrupt data- probably blows away your presets and seat memory and million uconnect option settings but might be worth a shot since it's annoying you. you can get into the engineering menu folowing this video and do a factory reset:

there's also some options for siriusxm in there- but i know nothing about those so use at your own risk. Not sure if they were just diagnostics or anything that does anything- it's been a while since i looked around.


GOOD LUCK -- wish i new more facts to help you instead of just guesses.

Hey, this is all good info and worth pursuing.

No, this is strictly the "XM service loading... please wait" message.

Now that you mention the above (and I'll have to check tomorrow on my drive in to work) I vaguely remember looking at my Sirius subscription info some time ago in my U-Connect settings and it was showing the exact opposite of what I actually have... no radio subscription and subscribed to Sirius Travel Link and Weather. I thought that was weird and I kind of forgot about it until you mentioned the above.

I also know that my U-Connect software is out of date. The dealer was going to update that the last time I was in but were unable to download it onto a flash drive from Jeep's website. I need to check on that also.

Thanks!

Re: How to turn off Sirius Renewal Message?

updating the uconnect yourself is trivial.

the toughest thing is chysler set up an idiot website for downloads. You have to download software to download the software- lol. That's not a typo.

go here:
https://rsur.extra.chrysler.com/rsur/Uconnect.do

enter the last digits of your vin and it will send you to the page for the proper software update.

if i recall corrently it has you download the software to download the REAL software. then you download the real software and run it with a blank usb drive in your computer. Then it puts the correct files on the usb drive.

After that you basically put the usb drive in the usb port on the dash- the radio sees it and does it's thing for like 15-20 minutes then you follow the instructions it gives about opening and closing the drivers door to reboot the system and presto chango your good to go.

It was the first thing i did when i go home from the dealer with the truck. I read of the various issues people had with older versions and figured i might as well just start off right. I hate visiting the service department at my dealer- drives me nutz. So I avoid them like the plague.
