Egads, I imagine that the electrical system in your car is not properly shielded. You can attempt to locate the unshielded wires and cover them, shield the XM reciever (the interference is most likely within the reviever, not the antenna), or try repositioning the reciever in your car- unless it's in-dash. If it's in-dash, it may be that some of your audio cables aren't properly shielded also.

My plug on antenna came off I plugged it in and it won't work now

The antenna for Satellite radios work at a very high microwave radio frequency, so nearly impossible for an average Joe to repair, even with FARKA connector and soldering iron. You will have to spring for a new antenna; try a thrift store for one, or you can get one online as well before you give BB $50 for one. Make sure you have one for XM or one for Sirius specific to your radio - it might even say "SiriusXM" but in the fine print will say "For use on the XM System only" or for "Use on the Sirius System Only" - so pay attention to that. Most are XM now.

Can't get refresh signal to work for xm radio

to reset the radio - it must be removed from the dash and unplugged.
Be sure to write down any anti-theft codes if your radio requires them.

However - since your radio is getting the 2 channels - it is working properly. The problem lies in XM turning on your account.

Be sure to get the correct # off the radio... sometimes there is a transposition error with paperwork.
The number can be gotten by setting your radio to channel 0. This is your radio ID# required to activate the radio.

Your Radio is working fine - call XM and stay on the line until they activate your account.

I have a suspicion the number was written down improperly.

Be sure when you call that the car is on, and that it is tuned to station #1... also - it can take 15-20 minutes to activate - and must be left on for the duration to catch the activation signal that is sent out.

Here are the steps from XM to activate manually-

Get Your XM Radio Activated Online

Step1 Turn on your XM radio and tune it to channel 0. The display will read your XM radio's identification number. This number will include both letters and numbers. Write this number down and head to your computer.

Step2 Log onto the Internet and go to the XM radio website. A high speed connection to the Internet will make this go faster, but you can activate your XM radio online with dial up.

Step3 Click on the tab that says to activate a new XM radio. This will take you to a screen where you will enter your XM radio's identification number. Type this in.

Step4 Choose a screen name and password to make an account on the XM web site. The screen name should be something that you will easily remember. The password needs to be at least 7 characters long and include 1 capital letter, 1 lowercase letter, and 1 number.

Step5 Enter your personal information for the activation of your XM radio. This information will include your name, address, and email address. You will also need to choose which service plan you will want to purchase for your XM radio. Enter your credit card payment to finish purchasing your activation of your XM radio online.

Step6 Turn on your XM radio and tune it to channel 1. XM will send a signal out to your XM radio to activate it. You will need to leave the radio tuned to channel 1 for 15 to 20 minutes to activate it.

If you have additional questions or concerns - please ask me first before moving on to another expert.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
