Unhappy Sirius Radio Problem

Recently my 2006 E83 displayed an error "SSR Error" while listening to Sat Radio. This was the first time the Sat Radio had ever caused a problem. Then, within a couple days, the Satellite Radio quit functioning completely...it only displays "No Artist Content", "No Title Content". I have "resent the Activation Signal" from Sirius on Ch 184 like they recommend...no luck. To continue troubleshooting, I have checked the antenna cable connection at the receiver and it appears fine. I disconnected it and reconnected it...no obvious problems with it or the cable. I also pulled the fuse from the satellite radio reciever and verified it was no longer available as a "mode" ...then replaced the fuse and it is available as a "mode" but no content available like before. I am guessing that the antenna in the Sharkfin is bad? How can I further troubleshoot this? How can I access the Sharkfin? Any help is appreciated! Thanks, Alan

Look for the thread about leaky sun roof, I have posted pics about opening the roof liner from rear, the shark-fin antenna is easily accessible from there.

raetza,

did you ever figure out what your problem is? I'm having a similar problem with a new sirius receiver that wont activate. Did you ever attempt to see the ESN from the radio? my radio is not displaying the ESN number..so I'm not sure if the receiver is bad or not and was wondering if you ever figured out what was going on with your sirus receiver.

Can you please post a link? My Sirius doesn't work either, and started to get weird electrical gremlins.. Wonder if that's what it is,.
