If you decide to purchase XM Radio service, contact XM Radio at www.xmradio.com, or at 1-800-852-9696. In Canada, contact XM CANADA at www.xmradio.ca, or at 1-877-209-0079.

XM Radio will continue to send an activation signal to your vehicle for at least 12 hours from the activation request. If the service has not been activated after 36 hours, contact XM Radio. In Canada, contact XM CANADA .
