XM Radio Reception

Radio losses signal when I go under or am around a Major (or main power line). Not all power lines cause this to happen.Seems like lines that run to a town or a city or a good size factory. Please help...Have taken it to the radio dearler and they said they could not find a problem.

Hi, On a newer Kenworth truck has built in xm radio. Every thing was fine till , near as I can tell, I was waxed the top of the cab. Did not disturb the antenna in anyway, however now when I travel north I...


The signal comes from low in the Southern horizon, so if you have a trailer it is blocking the antenna. You would be best off to buy a special trucker antenna that mounts on your mirror and gets it a little bit higher and away from the trailer blocking the signal from the south when you're driving North. Okay? good Luck.

2012 toyota highlander sirius radio constantly loss of signal


I have similar issue. Signal easily lost whenever there isn't a truly clear path to sky. My old cheapie XM radio add-on was MUCH better. I'm taking this back to my dealer tomorrow for other issues with the "top of the line" DVD/NAV/XM system. Such as it won't read the data on most CD's and display names of tracks (maybe 1 CD will display out of 10); and the way the radio truncates the Sirius/XM titles, etc. to much less than the full available screen (my cheapie add on did a better job). For $2,000+ bucks this is a very disappointing audio/GPS system. Sound is mediocre as well. This must be a huge profit center for Toyota -- cheap components + high price = $$$ for them.

Hi, I'm about 40 miles NW of Chicago and reception here is not great. I like to listen to AM radio. I usually use my speakers just to listen to CD's, but I decided to try my Acoustic Research receivers...


First make certain the CD player isn't on when the radio is on. CD players cause inteferance with radio's. Apart from that you will need a good aerial. If that doesn't improve it then it could be down to local conditions -hills, power lines etc, blocking the signal. Also check there's nothing around the house that might cause interferance to the signal.

Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Repeater


You begin by setting up your existing (((XM))) antenna the one that came in your home kit (not included in repeater package) in a location that gets good reception of the (((XM))) signal. This may be outside, or on a south facing window sill. This antenna gets plugged into the rear of the Delphi (((XM))) Radio Signal Repeater Transmitter. A power jack is right next to the antenna connection, and should be plugged in and to the wall with the included power supply. There is also a "PWR OUT" selector switch on the rear of the unit which allows you to control the strength of the signal transmitted from the unit.

Once the power and antenna are attached, both blue indicator lights will light up on the face of the unit. The blue antenna indicator will light up only to signify that the antenna is attached correctly. It does not let you know whether your antenna is in a location receiving a good (((XM))) signal or not. You will have to look at the signal strength indicator on your (((XM))) radio receiver do determine best location for the (((XM))) antenna.

Once you have this setup, place the Repeater Antenna close to your existing (((XM))) Radio and plug it into your antenna jack on the (((XM))) radio cradle. This connector is identical to your (((XM))) Home Antenna provided with all Boom boxes and (((XM))) home receivers and kits so compatibility is guaranteed. The Repeater Receiver Antenna does not require any separate power connections. Hope this helps!

AM radio fuzzy now


I have to disconnect the power supply (I installed a switch) to shut off entirely the XM power supply as it will wipe-out your AM reception. Nothing you can do other than put in a switch. Even if the XM unit is OFF, you will still get the interference from the power supply.

XM radio reception issues


If you have the magnetic antenna, check it for a little nick on the cable on the outside of the car where water might get in to it. A little water can short the ground and the antenna wire. You also can wash (with lots of water around where the antenna cable is) and see if it happens again, then you will know it not just the weather

My XM just recently started to cut out in certain locations that had no problem before. It seems to be getting a good signal the screen display does not cut out. I lose volume and get static just in certain spots. Anyone know where I should start looking for a fix.

..just read about your reception/interference problems and, having lived through similar situations for some time — particularly with different weather conditions. The following solution has settled it all : wrap power cable around storage brackets at back of radio with a short length then wound around support posts (between radio and cupboard from which radio hangs), then run short length to power supply outlet. In my case this result comes after much experimentation with the length of unwapped power cord (including fully unwrapped and stretched out) and different patterns of winding around the support posts. This final result takes care of everything (better sound, no interference/loss-of-reception when moving around in the room or in front of the radio, weather has no effect, stations received that could not be before due to overlap by nearby, more powerful ones). I have only about 2 1/2 feet of cable running from the brackets at back of radio, then wound once around center support and half around right support to then go to wall and down to receptacle close by (I tried all kinds of combinations of unwrapped lengths and winding patterns around 1 to 3 posts)...individual cases may be different. so GOOD LUCK, 'cause the radio is great...!

Loss of XM signal


The problem is amazingly simple.
The red wire goes to your ignition so it turns the radio off when you power down your car so as not to discharge the battery.
The YELLOW wire is usually your memory and it connects to the power side of your fuse box (anywhere will do as long as it's powered when the car is off completely). Occasionally this wire is blue but it's rare.
This wire draws a tiny little bit of power so your stereo doesn't 'forget' your station settings etc.
BTW Pioneer is one of my favourites :)
