2008 F-350 No Satellite Radio - 4200NEX SiriusXM grayed out

Post by gatorchamp » Sun Jun 17, 2018 5:15 pm

Hello!

I recently installed a Pioneer 4200NEX in my truck to replace the factory stereo (without nav). The only thing that does not work is the satellite radio. All of the options are grayed out. Everything I have seen on your site indicates this feature should be retained. It really is the main reason I chose this kit over a cheaper option.

Can you please help advise what may be the cause of the problem? I know I have a separate sat radio module in my truck and so everything should be in place to make this work. I have triple checked all of my wires from the F01 harness are plugged in.

Thanks in advance.

Unless you install an external aftermarket sat tuner, the SiriusXM source should be grayed out. Make sure you're looking in Vehicle Sources for the factory satellite radio source.

Aha! I had no idea to look under car sources. Everything is working as expected now that I know where to find it.

Thanks so much. Great product and support!
