Default SOLVED annoying key in ignition noise

Every since I obtained this car earlier this year I was greeted with two distinct entry noises. One is the usual factory key-in ignition reminder that is instant.

The mystery and much more annoying noise came through the speakers a few seconds after putting the key in the ignition.

It came from the suspected culprit--Sirius XM receiver. I'm pretty sure it is telling me that my subscription is expired. No more annoying alert now that I unplugged that receiver. Probably could have remedied it by unplugging connector 2 from the rear of the original car stereo too.

It may have just been a grounding (bonding) issue. If you hook a wire to the chassis of the satellite receiver and then to the chassis of the stereo unit, it might go away.
