Q&As

Why is my SiriusXM account information incorrect?

If you have an active OnStar® or Connected Services plan, you can view your SiriusXM® subscription information, radio ID and more on My Account, under Plans & Services. If you don’t have an active OnStar or Connected Services plan, you’ll need to sign in to your account on the SiriusXM website.

There may be a delay between My Account and SiriusXM accounts. You can always look up your subscription status by signing in to your account on the SiriusXM website.

Do I need a subscription to use SiriusXM Radio?

Yes, a subscription is required. The GM Infotainment System is just the interface that allows you to access the channels. Most 2017 and newer models come with 3 months of SiriusXM® Satellite Radio standard. Go here for more information.

Do I need to pair my phone to access my SiriusXM Satellite Radio?

No, SiriusXM®’s channels are satellite-based, so there is no need to pair your phone to use the feature.

Is SiriusXM Travel Link included in the SiriusXM Satellite Radio subscription?

SiriusXM® Travel Link®† is included as part of the standard 90-day SiriusXM® Satellite Radio trial period. After the initial 90 days, SiriusXM Travel Link® must be added on to the SiriusXM® Satellite Radio subscription. Additional fees may apply.
