I have had my 2007 Fusion V6 SE for 10 days.
The Sirius satellite radio stayed activated for one week.
The message on the (this Saturday) screen indicates I am required to contact the folks at Sirius. This I did. They varified a few things (free 6 month subsription).
The radio will not receive signal and says it is unsubscribed even though Sirius say that is not the case. I was told I have to take it to the dealer as it is a hardware problem. The dealer is totally unfamiliar with the problem because the system is new to them. I am booked to visit the dealer tomorrow.
Has anyone else had this issue?

I visited the Ford dealer. This is the first factory satellite receiver they've seen.

The satelite presets must all be programmed. (or you need to be aware of the ones you have not programmed yet)

If you press a preset that has not yet been programmed the display says contact Sirius Satellite you are unsubscribed.

To get signal back you simply press search and the system will find a station. The programmed presets will work again.

The satelite receiver has the S1, S2, S3 each is capability of storing 6 presets (total 18). I am finding it difficult to find enough stations I like to use all the presets up.

I hope this helps new 2007 SE owners.

I've had Sirius for 13 months now (actually, I got it about a week after I got my Fusion). I use an external receiver and transmit through the FM radio. With well over 100 stations, I can honestly say I only listen to about 6! I ususally leave it on Elvis, then zip over when I'm told one of the memory artists/songs come on. I work 12 hr shifts in a car and find I can't live without it. One thing, and this is for all other Sirius subscribers: I prepaid 1 year when I signed up. A few weeks ago I checked my account online and found something disturbing. Although they did renew me automatically by billing my credit card after one year, they also made a "mistake" in July, where they billed for another year. (It had only been 7 months, then 5 months later, dinged me again). I never even noticed on my cc bill (that was my fault), but I can't help but wonder how many people got done the same way. Keep an eye on your method of payment.
Happy Holidays

Sirius has screwed me too!! Instead of transferring my tuner ISN# to my Fusion... instead they canceled my account, charged me for activation and other misc. fees. Then they canceled my subscription later that month... then charged me AGAIN for activation. After 2 months and the crazy month of December... they still haven't got it right. I'm sick of talking to them on the phone. My account is supposed to end in January so I'm going "lifetime" and hopefully NEVER have to deal with them again.

I can't live without Sirius. I hate commercials and love the different music that isn't played on normal radio.

I just had my Sirius tuner installed at the dealer yesterday. I thought that they would run the antenna through the stock antenna. I was suprised to see the standard "mini-dome" antenna on my roof. Is this correct? Was the installer cutting corners?

I have had Sirius and have since July of 2002. I got lifetime then for $399 so Sirius has been Free to me for sometime now. I am happy that the Fusion has the audio input jack so that I don't have to mess with the FM Mod, in my Malibu I installed a wire FM Mod which gave me much better sound than the wireless FM mod.

I wanted a Starmate Replay for my Fusion, but they were sold out. I got a Sportster 4 which is great, I just need to get a install bracket for it. Not sure if I will go the with this from Crutchfield or this from Pro Clip USA. Both of them work but since I already have a profit mount for the cell, I might go with the other so I don't block another vent. The Profit one is easier to mount for sure.

Wow, if I got Sirius, my wife would "sirius"ly kill me. I want it though!

I've done a few things, but none of which I would consider "mods" (tint, K&N, mounting radar detector). The bluetooth kit was my first real "mod".

I can only imagine how she's going to complain when I tell her that I'm going to add a rear window spoiler, trunk spoiler, and new speakers. Sirius radio would be damn nice, but I'm afraid it would also get me divorce papers :lol: Hey, if she gets to drive a Limited Explorer, I'm going to pimp mine up a lil bit too :)

Yep but in order for the merger to go through it has to be voted on by stockholders and be approved by FCC.

Major obstacles, they have to prove that the deal would be the best in the public interest. They would have to show that customers would be better off with more choice and affordable prices. PLUS, if you have an XM receiver you won't get Sirius and vice versa so they will have to come out with a receiver to get both signals....that will suck but the prices should come down. It will take a year at least for this to go down probably longer.

I received this yesterday from XM. I have a home satellite radio.
February 20, 2007


Dear XM Radio Subscriber:

We want to share with you some exciting news: Yesterday, in Washington DC, we announced XM Radio will be merging with Sirius Satellite Radio to form the premier digital audio service.

The merger will create a satellite radio company that will provide consumers across the country with more and better premium radio programming. The combined company will be able to compete better in what has become a very complex and dynamic entertainment market.

Where today our exclusive contracts mean you had to choose between baseball and football or Oprah and Martha Stewart, the new company will seek to ensure that in the future, you will be able to access both companies' programming. And, once we are fully integrated, those of you who have factory-installed satellite radio will no longer be limited to the programming provided by the exclusive satellite radio service chosen by their car manufacturer.

This merger should be completed in late 2007 or early in 2008. Throughout the year, we will provide updates on how the merger is progressing and information will be available at our website, www.xmradio.com.

Between today and the merger date, as well as during the period immediately after the merger date, all of your services will remain the same. The channel lineup, the customer service number, the great music technology, and the XM Radio web site will all remain unchanged and there will be no disruption to service. But, if you have questions, information will be available and maintained on our website, and you can contact our Listener Care team at 800-XMRADIO, with questions and concerns.

XM Radio continues to be committed to providing you the highest quality audio entertainment and customer service available today. After the merger, our new company will be able to offer you the most exciting listening experience in radio.

Sincerely,

Hugh Panero
CEO, XM Satellite Radio
