Default Sirius Electronic Serial Number

New to the forum, but not new to Fords. Just picked up a 2010 GT and it's a great vehicle. I did a search on Siruis ESN and received what the owners manual stated, press AUX and preset #1 at the same time in the satellite mode to see the ESN number on the radio display. I've tried this several times without success. I also called Sirius and they provided the same directions. Any suggestions?

Do it with the radio off? Maybe you have to be on a different input at the time? Not sure...

I tried AJ 68's suggestion and still no luck, but I did come up with the way to get the ESN. The owner's manual says to press the the AUX and #1 preset buttons at the same time while in the Sirius mode to get the ESN, but I found by pressing the Sirius and #1 preset buttons at the same time while in the Sirius mode the ESN displays on the screen.

Same problem. Same cure. Satellite button + #1 Preset did the trick. I joined this forum after finding this cure to this PITA situation. Thanks.

The booklet has a typo.
Its Sirius button and the #1 button.
Not the AUX button and the #1...

Here are the instructions in case for receiving the ESN:

For vehicles equipped with the in-dash navigation system:

- Press the "i" button on the navigation screen.
- Select "System Info" and "SIRIUS" from the menu.
- The SIRIUS Radio ESN and Travel Link ESN will display on the navigation screen.

For vehicles without the in-dash navigation system:

- Press the "SIRIUS" and the #1 pre-set buttons on the radio simultaneously and release.
- The SIRIUS Radio ESN will display on the radio message center.

I got my 2013 Mustang yesterday. I tried to get the ESN using everything suggested, but nothing works. If I have a Sirius button, doesn't that mean I can get a subscription to Sirius?

No. Having the button does not mean you have the sirius installed. The v6 basic has the button but no sirius installed. BTW, I'm still trying to find out if it is sirius ready. I have multiple subscriptions and would like to transfer one to the mustang. I would like to have sirius control from the oem radio head. So far, it appears that I will need to install the iSimple.

If anyone knows of another solution, please advise.

Ive had my 2013 V6 premium for about 3 months now and forgot about activating my Sirius XM radio, when I went to obtain my ESN the way the instruction manual instructs me to I get nothing, and when I press the Sirius button it just says no sirius found. Does this mean I dont have it installed?

I recall there was a misprint in the manual. I don't have mine with me. I believe it was something like instead of holding Aux and 1 simultaneously, it is sirius and 1. As far as having the sirius you should be able to look in the trunk on the passenger side. Just peel back the liner. That's where the factory sirius mounts. I do not have the premium, so I do not have the factory sirius. My impression was that my head unit was sirius ready. Now I'm working on adding an iSimple interface for ipod and sirius. I will post a thread on how that works out. I'm still waiting for a cable.
hope this helps - sorry for the ramble

Do you have the sirius antenna in the middle of the trunk? (also cars with it installed have a sticker on the driver window for Sirius) If not, then it isn't installed. And you don't have to activate it. If it installed in your car the dealer activates at delivery.

Take it back to the dealer. If you have the antenna on the trunk (black bug in the center of the trunk, not the mast on the rear fender) then they didn't activate your radio or the receiver was removed by someone.
