2005 WK REF Sirius Not Working?

I recently purchased a 2005 WK Rocky Mountian that still has the factory REF stereo in place, and according the original window sticker and running the VIN with Sirius, had Sirius XM as a factory option (i know the antenna is in the roof as well) I signed up for a free two month trial, but whenever I switch to SAT, I get no sound, and after about 5 seconds it switches back to FM. I've talked to Sirius a few times and have had them transmit the signal 4 times, but still get nothing on any channel..

Am I missing something, or is there something I need to do to get this working?

Thanks!

Take out the radio and make sure all plugs are plugged in.

Does the radio have some sort of LED screen that displays stations, time, etc.? If it does, does it come up and say, "Updating Channels"? When it's updating, SOMETIMES mine won't put out sound and will revert back to FM. I sometimes have to repeatedly set the mode button back to "Sat" so it'll continue updating all the channels. I've had it take up to 10-20 minutes or more to upload all the new channels. Also, if this doesn't work, you may want to check the connection to the satellite radio antenna.

Good luck and let us know the outcome of this.

Also, do you get any indication that Sat. radio is receiving a signal? You should be able to get, I think channel 184 which tells you how to activate the service. If you don't get that, something for sure is wrong with signal reception or radio, because it is the only channel that will work without a subscription.
