Question about 2007 Cadillac CTS 3.6L

Open Question

XM radio cuts out

Main problem: the XM radio cuts out (goes mute) during a song for a fraction of a second to 10 seconds. During this time the display is normal. AM/FM radio bands work fine. Other XM radio intermittent problems: station buttons don't work, it switches bands on its own XM to FM, sometimes the "FM Lock" message is on for a few seconds. Can XM radio do anything about the problem? If not, who trouble shoots problems like this and replaces XM modules, other than the Cadillac dealer?

SOURCE: Radio wont work

wfdyer,

go buy a new radio. You can usually get free installation. If you are a do it yourselfer. Then go to crutchfields web site. They are great, they give you the adaptor plates and wire harness to go from what ever radio you get to the car, with no splicing (cutting and reconnecting of wires) They will tell you what radios will not work and tell you what ones will.

Sorry to say it but you have power to the radio, and there are really 3 things a radio needs to work. power, speakers, and a signal. you can check the antena to make sure its not broken or disconnected. but most of the times its the radio

SOURCE: Second time the radio had to be replaced

Hello. I have driven cadillacs for years. Although it is unlikely to get two lemon radioes in a row, it sounds like this is what happened. I would recommend that you speak kindly but firmly to the dealership manager and tell him that you want another new radio. Joe

SOURCE: The radio in my cadillac

This can be a serious fault in the RF receiving stages as the signal processing being weak the AFT- auto frequency tuning- seems to HUNT around and also produce the squelch - mute activated with low signal.
This might need a signal test in the front end section and so you might help. But before you pull out the set a possible chance can also be a faulty ANTENNAE. If possible remove and check on the wores, connectors and the antennae. Try with another working one or try this in another set to confirm.

How to work 12 disk changer in 2001 corvette with a bose radio


Hello my name is Ben. I have had 2 of these cars and they both worked the same. Once you load the cartridge with your CDs and insert the cartridge into changer and close that little door on the changer the rest is automatic. On the dash you will see two buttons to the left of the radio display. One says TAPE AUX. That is the button that switches from radio to the CD changer. Push the TAPE AUX button and the CD changer will play whichever CD is selected. The PREV button if pressed during the first 8 seconds of a song will go to the previous song, if PREV is pressed after 8 seconds it will go to the beginning of the song. The PROG button will go to the next CD. The NEXT button will go to the next song on the CD you are playing. The REV and FWD allow you to quickly move within a song, either forward or backward. If you have any other questions, just ask, I have the owners manual readily available. I know it should be in the car, LOL

Tire pressure reset will not reset


Labatche822,
The process for resetting your Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM) is below.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards.

To reset (calibrate) the system:
1. Turn the ignition switch to RUN.
2. Press the GAGE INFO button on the DIC until
TIRE PRESSURE appears on the display.
3. Press and hold the DIC RESET button for about five
seconds. After five seconds, the display will show
TIRE PRESSURE RESET. If TIRE PRESSURE
RESET does not appear on the display after about
five seconds, see your dealer for service. After you
release the DIC RESET button, TIRE PRESSURE
NORMAL will appear on the display.
The system completes the calibration process during
driving. During the first 10 to 25 miles (15 to 40 km) of
driving, the system will not alert you if a tire is high or
low. After 25 to 100 miles (40 to 160 km), the
system will only alert you about pressure differences of
12 psi (85 kPa) or more. After about 100 miles (160 km)
of driving, the system will alert you if one tire is
10 psi (69 kPa) different from the other three tires.

XM radio goes in and out


Call the XM service number, they will refresh your signals. If it was the head unit, the same problem would occur during AM/FM signal transmission
