How to set FM Frequency on XM Radio Delpi SkyFi

I just bought an XM Radio Delpi SKYFi off of eBay. The radio works fine in the house but I can't determine how to get it to work in the car. With previous XM radios I have owned, I simply set the car radio to a clear FM channel and then set the XM radio to the same channel. With the Delpi SkyFi, I can't figure out how this is accomplished. The User Manuals are pretty bad and I looked through the XM radio's menu but I can't find the correct option. Where do I set the FM frequency on the SkyFi? Help!

Is this a skyfi 1 2 or 3. if its a two or three if you go to the menu button and scroll down to fm frequencys and select that from the drop down menu. then scroll through the built in frequencies and determine which one comes in the clearest. if its a skyfi one then your gonna have to put in a wired fm modulator because the first one doesnt come with a wireless fm transmitter.

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) http://www.siriusretail.com/pdf/hardware_support/delphi/skyfi_operations.pdf

How do i refresh xm radio ?


Go to Channel 0 and get your serial number. Then, make sure you have a good signal, leave radio on Channel 1 for 1/2 hours after calling 1-800-XM-RADIO and ask they to refresh your radio. They will tell you how long to wait - okay?

Need a manual


I would try the XM Radio DOT Com website and search for user manuals. It is relatively easy - a 3 on a scale of 1-5 to do.

Have difficulty with volume control on Delphi SkyFi. Turning volume knob produces a digital number of 1 to 3. Seems to work better after being warmed up. Can eventually get up to 12 or above. Anything I...


Do you have one of the original orange display SkyFi units, or a SkyFi2, or an XT? It sounds like you are using it in a boombox? The rotary dials do wear out on the SkyFi and SkyFi2 and there isn't much you can do - the knob may come off and you can spray in some contact cleaner, but that doesn't always work either. Using a remote control might be your only hope at this point unless you buy a new old stock unit off of eBay or the like. Good luck.

Delphi Skyfi2 won't turn on anymore.


I have the Skyfi 2 with car cradles. I have had them for about 7-8 years. I bought two brand new power cords to use with the cradles so I could move the Skyfi 2 to different vehicles. Neither power cord will power up the Skyfi 2 when in the cradle. I contacted the company I bought them from and they sent me two more cords. These cords are brand new as well. They too do not power the unit. My original power cord still powers the unit but I am trying to eliminate having to move it to each vehicle. I then bought a complete unopened kit from ebay. Using the new kit parts only, my Skyfi 2 will not power up. Did they change the kit since I bought mine and now it is not compatible. Everything looks identical so it is driving me nuts. Any help is appreciated, Thanks!

Delphi skyfi won't connect to my fm radio automatically.


The audio plug overrides the FM frequency setting. That way if you use a tape adapter to run the music through it will use that source instead.

A lot of FM channels are getting crowded into a lot of markets out there. The best way to fix the problem is to use a direct FM module. This way your Sirius will override the FM channel whether it is used or not.

Here is a link for one:

they are very easy to install.
