REF to RER upgrade, no SAT Radio
 
I recently upgraded my REF to a RER Nav Unit. My stock system all ready came with steering controls, BA speakers and Sirius radio. After the RER upgrade everything works great with the Lockpick V.3 except for the Sirius Radio. I called Sirius and gave them the new number off the radio, but nothing is coming through.

I thought I read a post somewhere that the REF had to use an external Sat radio box, as where the RER is internal. So if there are 2 control units there is a conflict and nothing works. Can anybody shed some light on this issue for me so I know what my next steps are.

Vehicle Details:

05 WK 3.7L Rocky Mt.

Stock Radio: REF w/ BA & Sirius

Upgraded to: RER w/ Lockpick V.3
