1Receiving SiriusXM® Radio  
Receiving SiriusXM® Radio  
The SiriusXM® satellites are in orbit over the equator;  
therefore, objects south of the vehicle may cause  
satellite reception interruptions. Satellite signals are  
more likely to be blocked by tall buildings and  
mountains the farther north you travel from the  
equator.  
Switch to the SiriusXM® mode by using the SOURCE button on the steering wheel,  
or through the audio/information screen, and stay in this mode for about 30  
minutes until the service is activated. Make sure your vehicle is in an open area with  
good reception.
