Question about Delphi Roady XT XM Radio Receiver

1 Answer

Whinning noise with my delphi roadyxt

Last year I received a roadyxt as a gift. I started using it in my 2002 Toyota highlander with a cassette adapter. A few months later the casstte player in my highlander started acting up so I bought a FM modulator. Now I get a whinning noise when I play the roady through my stereo. I do not believe it is an alternator whine as it happens even when the engine is not running. The whine only happens with the Roady if I connect my iPod to the modulator no whine. I am at a loss.

U are picking up spurious radio noise (comes from anything that uses electricity and other things like overhead transmission lines, it may be from the cassette player motor, go to radio shack and try to find an RF filter that will suppress this noise, that should take care of it, also the chassis of the cass adapter must be grounded to the car chassis sheet metal, if not the motor noise can come through from the little DC motor's in the player.

Will delphi sa10000 without cassette player

Should be able to hear Sirius channels through your FM radio. Cassette is better, but you can just set up your FM radio to the same channel as you set the Delphi unit. See instruction manual (download from online here)

I have a 2002 toyota highlander with 231000 miles on it.How long will it last? still runes good!

regular oil changes and maintenance it's hard to say how long it will last. do those things and fix mechanical problems as they arise and it should outlast the body on the vehicle. i clocked over 400,000 km on my last vehicle which is close to the milage you have run up. it still ran ok and is likely still running. i only sold it as i picked up a vehicle with extremely low miles on it.

Intermittent rough idle on 2002 toyota highlander

before you do this I would get some wooden qtips - the long ones auto detailers use. take off the air filtrer assembly and spray carb cleaner into the air\fuel intake and use the qtip to wipe out the inside of the intake. I had the same problem with my highlander a year ago and this fixed the problem.

2002 highlander radio code

Good news: You do not have to worry about you issue.
Your radio (if it is a "factory" radio) does NOT require a security reset code. You do not have an "anti-theft" radio. You can disconnect the battery cables at will, and the only issue you will have is that you will lose the preset stations that you set manually.
The "anti-theft" radios were abandoned by Toyota several years ago. Hope this eases your mind.
