    I am a Howard Stern listener, and have found that when I turn my engine off, Howard 100 stops playing on the radio, and displays "MyKey Restricted" on the display.

    I have no MyKey created, both keys are administrator. And Howard 100/101 play just fine while the engine is running, but not when turned off.

    I am guessing this is to keep kids from getting in the car and listening to strippers, midgets and porn stars, but does anyone know how to defeat this? I frequently stay in the car to catch the last few minutes of a bit, and would like to turn the car off.

    Thanks, and a Bababooey to you all!

    I have the same issue with Faction, and just about any of the good music channels. It is rather annoying. I have yet to find out how to fix it, but I am sure it is in the menu someplace.

    I ran into this too on a comedy channel...went through all the menus and could not find a way to defeat it, Googling the problem did not help either. I thought that maybe creating a MyKey with no restrictions would work but it did not and there were no separate settings for Sirius anyway. What does work is turning the car back on without the clutch depressed but that is a PITA and there should be a way to defeat the restriction. My dealer has a MyFord Touch specialist (from what I've read Ford funds this because of all the bad press on MyFord Touch, especially when it was new and very buggy), I'll see what he knows but am not too hopeful...when the car is shut off with the radio on it acts as if no key is in the car (at least so far as Sirius is concerned) until the start button is pushed again

    I found this in the owners manual, it might work


    You can clear all MyKeys within the same
    key cycle as you created the MyKey. If you
    switch your ignition off, however, you will
    need to use an admin key to clear your

    Note: When you clear your MyKeys, you
    remove all restrictions and return all MyKeys
    to their original admin key status at once.

    To clear all MyKeys of all MyKey settings,
    use the information display to do the

    Thanks....however my car was delivered with both keys as admin (as Ford specifies) so there are no restrictions to remove. I did experiment yesterday and make one key a MyKey with no restrictions but that did not help so I then cleared all MyKeys per the procedure...nothing has made Sirius restricted channels work when the car is shut off with the radio on EXCEPT turning it back on with or without an engine start.
