One of Sirius Satellite Radio's (now SiriusXM) first exclusive agreements was with the Chrysler Companies, placing the radio in Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler automobiles, including the Chrysler 300. As the auto manufacturer's luxury model, the 300's SiriusXM tuner is part of the car's uConnect entertainment system.
Finding the SiriusXM tuner
The uConnect screen is the home for the global positioning system, radio and optional online Internet system. To find the SiriusXM tuner, press the Audio Mode button, which is signified by a music note. The audio modes will advance through each of the available options--AM, FM, Sirius, iPod or MP3 hookup, onboard music hard drive. Advance the mode to Sirius to tune in the player.
There are a number of ways to tune a channel. The radio's tuning dial will advance the radio from station to station, in numerical order. The rewind and fast forward buttons perform the same task. Sirius channels are clustered by genre, i.e., rock, jazz, news and sports. To move from genre cluster to genre cluster, use the seek buttons. These will take the user to the first station of each genre. This can also be done by using the Music Type button.
Changing Memory Stations
The Chrysler 300's uConnect tuner integrates the memory for terrestrial and satellite channels on one level. Therefore, an AM station could be programmed in slot one, while Sirius could be in the second slot, and so on. To program a Sirius station to one of the preset buttons, tune the channel in, then press and hold the desired button for five seconds. The radio will beep, signifying a successfully programmed station.
