My 2010 Mercury Milan is Sirius radio capable. I accepted a free trial but can not get the radio to work. All that is displayed is No Signal.

I've called Sirius who graciously walked me through some troubleshooting. To verify the radio ID I was told to hold the Sirius and the 1 simultaneously. This did not work. No ID was displayed.

The Sirius tech told me to check the connections to the control unit, but I can not find it. I'm trying to avoid a trip to the dealer. Does anyone know where it is?

I removed the radio from the car and was able to finally determine the satellite control is integrated into the radio unit. On the unit itself is a tag with the ID #.

Unfortunately, once all connections were reseated, I still have the same problem.
