OK need a little help Just got a new radio to replace my old one that went crazy making phone calls, going to favorites etc.
so that radio was #68331631AH that new one is 68331631AM i was told that this should fit the truck and what i had
so i installed the radio first thing i notice that it didn't ask me to unlock/when i went to set up xm radio its only showed AM FM BLUE TOOTH usually its shows on the radio screen AM FM XM more sources. went to the system screen and saw that i was to migrate my xm subscription to the new radio it went but it didn't populate the radio screen with the xm button
Has anybody else had this happen
Thanks for all help

Sounds like you have a non XM Radio. Essentially what you would have to do is use the SiriusXm app and stream via Bluetooth.

Give it time. It should show up after several hours/power cycles.
