I am having the same issue with my 2006 mazda3 . Sirius kept telling me it was mazda, so after an entire week of not having it I brought it into mazda yesterday and they ordered me a new radio. We will see if this works. The radio should be in by the end of the week. I would suggest that you call up sirius and tell them you want to put your account on hold because your radio isn't working, so you dont lose time on your subscription. When it works again you just have to call them up and tell them that you want to re-activate the account. They told me you could have the subscription on hold for at least 2 yrs. Hopefully the new radio works again, because I am going nuts without the satellite radio lol.

Lastest info: Spoke with Sirius this morning, they ackowledge that certain modules will not accept the new update. Sirius's engineers are working with Mazda to resolve this. Apparently Mazda will have the responsibilty to make it right. Check with your local Mazda dealership. Good luck.

Latest Latest Info: I also have just spoken with SIRIUS and was given the run-around. I finally got the Customer Support Supervisor explained that the satellite had been working until they did their Update. I too was told that both Chrysler and Mazda's have been having this problem and that their techs were working with the Mazda Techs. to resolve the problem. I also got SIRIUS to give me a $39 credit to my account and a $20 good faith credit to my account. I also read in here that SIRIUS holds that account inactive for "2 years". Actually it's 2 months and they suspend the account. Once the issue has been resolved you just call and unsuspend it. Provided SIRIUS can get past this hump; I see it becoming the "NEW" standard in radio.

"Mazda wants us to wait a bit before we start replacing anything....as you indicated, and we have confirmed, they are working with Sirius to resolve the problem"
Based on my experience and complete understanding of the Mazda customer service system - Mazda will have a fix in 2011 - but they will not start fixing cars until 2015.

They sent out a special bulletin that says if billz71 comments on the problem all issues will be fixed immediately except for his car which will only be fixed the day after he sells his mazda.

They will fit just fine.

I don't have problem with Sirius radio - because don't have one!
Maybe that is where I made a mistake - I should have purchased a Mazda3 without AC - brakes - tranny - suspension - air bags - tires - I could have avoided most of the defects.
