I have a Dodge Challenger 2008 srt8
I bought it used. It has a factory installed Sirius radio. It has never worked. I get a "module failure" signal when I have tried to have it activated.

Hello,
Sorry for the delayed response..
Your response is basically the same as your original post. No actual question asked...??
I'll assume that you want to know what should be done...
Unfortunately, the agent from Sirius is correct, If a "Module Failure" message is showing up on the radio you have no choice but to take it to the dealer for diagnosis. The problem could be something as simple as a loose or disconnected antenna wire or it could be that the radio or Satellite Receiver needs to be replaced (which depends on which audio unit yours is equipped with, some have the satellite receiver internal to the radio, some have a standalone satellite receiver).
The only way to tell what the failure is is to have the vehicle scanned. The codes that are retreived will tell the tech which path to take...
Let me know if you have additional questions and we can go from there...
Thank you,
Robert
