XM radio ID Number?

I am trying to activate my XM radio. When I called them, they ask for a XM ID. I have tried for several days to get this ID number from my radio. I need to set the XM to zero? I can't do that? What am I doing wrong? It's a 8 number/letter code. T.

Tune the radio to XM channel 0 and you will get the code Make sure the display reads XM and then use the seek buttons to change the channel till it reads 0

SKY07...I think they are telling you to turn the XM radio to Channel 0, not the FM radio. What you posted is an FM band.

Go To: page 187 of your manual. XM Radio ID. Use your Up/Dn buttons on steering wheel until you get down to zero or 0 if you prefer... Do not seek anything, do it "manually".. Oh, make sure you select the XM "band", let me know if it works, I don't have XM option in my Sky..

Just asking the obvious...are you sure that you HAVE XM radio ?

On the '07s it was an option, it's standard on the '08s.

if you have XM you should be able to log on to the onstar website and get it from there.

It will be on the right hand side of the screen.

It's just a module that is in the passenger side of the trunk underneath the liner. It shouldn't be very expensive to have saturn install it if it's not there

I had a 07 Sky that did not have XM The dealer can not install the factory system. You will need to go after market to get XM in your 07 sky

Very easy way to see if you have XM radio. Keep clicking the BAND button on the radio. It will cycle from FM to AM to XM then repeat the cycle. If you don't see XM then you don't have it.

OK, question here, but isn't the little XM antenna on the trunk of a 2007? Should be a little black thing on the clamshell that says XM on it. I could be wrong though as I've seen a few posts that the antenna may be one with the On-Star antenna. I know the Sols had an XM antenna on the trunk though. Just a thought.

Ya the XM and on star use the same antenna.

But if you click the band button it should cycle through AM, FM,XM
If it does not show an XM than you don't have it.

Oh I agree as I have XM on my GP. It should go AM, FM, XM 1 and XM 2. At least mine does. Channel 0 on either of the XM bands brings up the XM ID on the Display. Says: Radio ID and then the ID. No XM then you'd only have AM and FM when surfing through the bands.

Dang...must only say it on the antenna if it's just the XM antenna. Well...I tried.
