Customer Question

I have a 2011 f150 and have the entertainment system with radio / cd / aux / usb sync. They all operate fine the only thing is it has a Sirius radio selection which is disabled. I have no sat antenna so I have no sat radio. Is there any way of installing sat radio and enabling operation on the entertainment system.
JA: Is this an aftermarket stereo, or did it come with the car?
Customer: Its OEM
JA: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: NO. I'm just wondering if I can enable the sat radio on my system by adding a sat radio
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: NO

Hello, my name is***** to Justanswer! Give me just a few minutes to look up some specifics, I'm working on this now.

Since you have an Aux input on your stereo, we can work with that. What you need is a satellite radio with a 3.5mm output to plug into aux. Satellite radios come with their own antennas and tuning system, so everything is built into them. Just plug into aux, and you're good to go.

You can find XM receivers at any electronics store.

I can still help, but if you're looking to add Sirius to your existing radio, you're wasting your time. It has to be built into the software in your radio, which it is not. The only way around that is to get an external Sirius/XM tuner, and connect it to your aux input on your existing radio.
