How to Install Sirius Radio in a Mazda 6

Save

Sirius Satellite Radio connects your Mazda 6 to music and entertainment stations that your terrestrial radio cannot access. Sirius Satellite Radio installation is simple once you have decided on a location for the suction cup dock. The Sirius Satellite Radio hardware self-installation kit contains all of the materials you need to begin enjoying thousands of channels while driving.

Things You'll Need

  • Sirius Satellite Radio subscription
  • Sirius Satellite Radio plug-and-play receiver
  • Sirius Satellite Radio antenna
  • Sirius Satellite Radio dock mount
  • Connect the Sirius Satellite Radio docking cradle to the enclosed power source. Insert one end of the enclosed power adapter into the Mazda 6's cigarette lighter. Insert the other end of the adapter into the "DC 12V" port on your Sirius Satellite Radio dock mount.

  • Mount the Sirius Satellite Radio antenna atop your Mazda 6's roof. Slide the antenna wire through the rear windshield's rubber casing. Run the antenna wire into the Mazda 6's trunk. Connect the antenna wire to the dock mount's "Antenna In" port. Tuck away any loose wires for safety.

  • Connect the dock mount to the enclosed suction cup. Attach the suction cup somewhere in your Mazda 6 that does not affect your ability to drive, see clearly or seat passengers. The dock mount fastens onto the inside of your windshield behind the rear view mirror. However, you can feel free to connect it anywhere in the car that is convenient for you.

  • Connect your Sirius Satellite Radio plug-and-play receiver to the dock mount.

  • Tune your Mazda 6 terrestrial radio to match the frequency your Sirius Satellite Radio receiver displays. You will then hear the receiver's output through your stereo system.

  • Call Sirius customer service or visit their website to activate your satellite radio. Use the customer service number included in your Sirius Satellite Radio hardware package. The number will also display on your receiver once you have connected it to the dock mount, in case you do not have the user manual handy.
