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