How to use SiriusXM satellite radio on Ford F-150

The factory-installed SiriusXM radio system on Ford F-150 includes a limited subscription term, which begins on the date of sale or lease of your vehicle.

For optimal reception performance, keep the antenna on F-150 clear of snow and ice build-up and keep luggage and other material as far away from the antenna as possible. Hills, mountains, tall buildings, bridges, tunnels, freeway overpasses, parking garages, dense tree foliage and thunderstorms can interfere with your reception.


When you pass a ground-based broadcast-repeating tower, a stronger signal may overtake a weaker one and could result in the audio system muting. Your display could show an error message to indicate the interference.

You can listen to satellite radio on Ford F-150 by first selecting Audio tab on SYNC 4 system and then touching SiriusXM button.
