Visteon radio

Does anyone know how to get the ESN to show up on the radio so I can call Sirius and get the satellite radio turned on?

You might want to call Newmar and check as to whether or not you radio can receive Sirius. Newmar does not run the wire and install the antenna needed for Sirius on all their coaches. I have a 2011 MADP with a radio that says Sirius right on it but when I went to have it connected I found out that I didn't have the antenna needed. So just because the radio is capable of receiving Sirius that doesn't mean you can actually get it.

Usually it is displayed on channel 1. You might want to look up n the roof to see if you have satellite radio antenna installed. On my 2012 DSDP it is towards the front and just to the right of the centerline of the roof.

Good luck

I tried for a long time to get the I'd out of my visteon. Gave up and traced the digital input wire to the firewall just to the left of the steering column. The actual receiver was mounted there and the ID was in plain sight.

Chances are your Sirius receiver will be mounted in a similar fashion. It will be withing a few feet of the radio.

BTW, I tore the Visteon out and replaced it with a JVC. It wasn't exactly an easy install but WOW, what a difference.

Muddypaws - I was thinking of updating, what issues did you run into with the swap?
