Default lost / limited channels

I recently had access to all Sirius channels in my car. I had the car in for repair, where the battery was disconnected for a few days. I now find myself with only channels 1-13, 66 and another in the 100 range. I purchased this car from someone who had a subscription and left it on for me. Not sure if the subsciption expired and this is limited programming or if my Clarion receiver is suspect. Nothing in the Clarion manual states that channels can not be received.

I could not find any info on the Sirius site....thanks

If it has a menu function somewhere on the radio you should be able to get into the settings and do a channel reset.

So Sirius doesn't terminate full service with perhaps a period of limited selection? I will try and find the item within the Clarion unit. I tried the scan and channel button and it recognizes all the channels now active, but not all of them...for example if I want to select channel 14 while on 13, it skips to 66

I will report back - thanks

When Sirius de-activates a receiver, all it will receive is Ch. 184

Alot of rcvrs have a "lock channel" option in the menu. If a channel is locked in this way, it will not allow you to select it. Restor defaults will not fic it you have to go to the option and unlock the channels.

Yeah, Sirius does not have a lot of channel groupings. It is pretty much all or nothing when activated.
