Sirius radio problem

Have a Visteon CD6 radio with satellite radio, for unknown reason Sirius radio stopped working, spent hours on phone with Sirius tech no help at all. Radio has a Visteon Sirius remote tuner attached by wiring, which is no longer for sale except used on ebay at high price. Sirius demo channel wont even show up says call Sirius. Worked fine then stopped all within the same day. Checked power, wiring etc. all appear ok. Maybe someone has had a similar issue with this setup, its pretty common in Fleetwoods. Any ideas before I consider replacing radio. Like to have our Fox news while on the road

Are you sure it is not a Jensen? My 07 had a Jensen in it, the Sirius tuner was located on the drivers side firewall. If it is a Jensen there is a small hole in the lower right corner, put something small in there and it will reset it.

The best thing to do is replace it with a real radio.

No it's a visteon CD6, used in many fords as well, probably have to replace , it's out dated anyway, just thought there might be a simple fix someone knew about

You might want to try another antenna. I had the same symptoms and it turned out that the antenna had died. All wiring looked like new. You can buy a replacement antenna from Radio Shack for about $30 or try to borrow one to see it that is the problem. My guess is that it is.
