Default Sportster install help

I could use some help troubleshooting my Sat radio-

The HU is a factory RBQ in an 05 Dodge Ram, the Sat radio is a Sirius Sportster that is hard wired using a PIE interface. I chose this inter face because it also has the 5v built in supply to power the Sportster.

Everything powers up ok except when I mode over to Sat radio on the factory head unit I get this message- “no mag” along with no audio.

I thought the PIE interface should work with the Sportster but maybe that’s where my trouble is??

You need to cycle through until the radio says CD or something to that effect. Turn your Sportster on and cycle through until you hear the Sirius.

The SAT on your HU is for if you have the factory set up.

Do you have an AUX button?
