No, you can not use any satellite radio to connect to Sirius. The hardware for each (XM or Sirius) is designed specifically for one or the other. For Sirius, there is a code on the back of the radio that they need to activate the service. It is specific only to Sirius equipment.

Yes, of course. Having Sirius satellite radio in the car in no way prevents the car's doors from opening, and they may be opened with any of the traditional methods ... operate the lock with a key, a combination touch-pad, or a remote control, or simply lift the latch-handle. Note that the Sirius satellite radio is not involved with the locking mechanism in any way, and can't help you open the doors any more than it can hinder you.

Why does your Sirius radio loose the signal without any obstacles blocking the antenna?

Your sirius radio is advertised as "satellite" radio, and that's how they distribute it out and around the country from their headquarters studio, but that's not how it gets to your car. When you listen to it, you're listening to a local ground repeater, not to a satellite. So when you say there are no obstacles, it doesn't matter whether or not you can see the sky; you need to be looking at trees and buildings that may be blocking your horizontal path, just like any other radio, TV, cellphone, etc.

How to know if your 2007 altima 2.5s capable of satellite radio?

Not sure. I have an 07 altima 2.5s and I'm interested in satellite radio too. The sirius/xm website says that the 2007 altima os equipped with satellite radio. Just had altima, no package, features, extras, etc. I'm hoping it was standard but highly doubt it. Please email me if you already have or do find out any additional info. -Brad
