Customer Question

I have an alpine radio in my car. I recently resubscribed to Sirius but the radio is not holding the refresh. Every time I turn the car off, the radio tells me resubscribe is activated and press any key to continue. ANy key gets me nothing. REfresh with Sirius works, but won't work again after the car is turned off. I've refreshed 4 times now. Sirius says its the radio, which has never troubled me before

Sirius cannot run its diagnostics when the car is moving.

When this problem occurs, try starting the car, out in the open (not inside a garage), and leave it running idle for a few minutes whilst stationary and the problem should resolve itself.
