You need to have one wire on an always 'hot' power feed. Be careful, as some GM products have a timer that shuts off the power after a 10 minute timer, so that could be your issue. Are you talking about a factory installed XM, or one like the photo above?
mine has some funny problems including this one. However when I do the power reset, it then turns on. To do this, hold down the power and Vol Up buttons for ~3 seconds and it should reboot. I don't know for sure, but I think it has an internal power management system (which most gadgets with Li-Ion batteries do), and just like my mac sometimes it gets confused and needs reseting.
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.

You can make one if you have the 4 pin white nylon connector. You only need 3 pins, one to 12volts for memory, one for 12volts accessory radio power, and one for GROUND. Let me know if you have the 4 pine white nylon connector, then I'll get you more info, okay?
Radio shack has a unit that plugs into a 110 socket and will accept the 12V plug that is standard with the radio. I use my unit in the house, car and on my motorcycle. The part number is 22-505 for the Radio Shack part.
The sirius unit does not have any channels in the unit. You need to refresh the radio (XM allows you to do it online, I dont know about sirius) and leave it powered on for about an hour for it to update the channel list.
