Satellite radio not working.

Pick up a 2009 E93 last weekend and I am loving it.

Car is just about fully loaded, except for extended leather and premium Hi Fi (has Hi Fi)
I never really thought about the Sat radio until the other day. I went to find it in the iDrive menu, but nothing. It is listed in the build sheet I received from the dealer. I even looked under the rear pad in the trunk, and can see the module, just in front of the fan. So I have it.

I am guessing it is just DOA. Any ideas? (Oh, and no warranty on the car, so this will be on me.)

Thanks for any help.

Bill

Under the pad in the trunk is an air pump for a flat tire.

Do a BMW vin decode and make sure it has the actual module and not just 'sat radio prep'.

The sat module is there. I can see it. It's near the back of the seat. You have to pull the cover all the way out. I also have the build sheet showing it is there. Not just prep.
I also pulled the large connector and I can see the fiber optic light, lighting up. I'll check incoming power tonight. Just odd that is doesn't even show up on the iDrive menu.
