All the time, it still plays the 50s oldies station but I cannot change it to anything else.
Talking to Sirius was hopeless, could not believe that they were trying to sell me something when all I wanted was to fix a problem.
Took it to the dealer and they said it needed a new antenna. I was finally given 800 number and told I needed to contact Mercedes. :-) Sirius tried to reactivate a bunch of times but to do this, the Sirius receiver must be on channel 184.
I told them "no way that is the problem" since it still play the 50s station but told them to go ahead and try it. I was on the phone with Sirrius on the 1st and the 2nd of September for 1 hour each time. But since it is on channel 5 continuously and I cannot change to anything else, the Sirius receiver will not accept the reactivate signal.
