Went through this on day one of ownership of my JK a couple of weeks ago. Anyway, with the JK parked in my driveway I called Sirius. They said they needed the specific Sirius hardware ID number for my Sirius radio so they could see it on their system and activate my radio with me being the account owner. Anyway, they were unsure how I would find the Sirius radio ID number they needed on my specific radio.
Anyway, I fooled with the radio for a few minutes and sure enough was able to make a selection that gave me the Sirius ID number for my JK's satellite radio. Gave it to the Sirius guy on the phone and he entered it into his system database. In about 20 seconds the Sirius radio in my rig was activated under my name.
****** SO, go out to your JK and turn the radio on. Be sure you are not parked in your garage as the radio needs to view the satellite when Sirius does the activation. With radio on, push the selection button that says "setup". After pushing setup, turn the large knob on the right of your radio until you see the words "Sirius ID number" or something like that. Write that number down! Now, while sitting in your vehicle with the radio on and "sat" on your radio selected, call Sirius and they will take that number from you and activate your satellite radio to Sirius with you being the account holder. This is all you need to do. No need to go to the dealer......
