2008 Hyundai Azera XM radio "not ready"


I had the same problem. My 2008 Hyundai Azera had 37,800 and my wife went over a speed bump the XM radio went off and displayed "Not Ready". I raised the hood, pulled the negative battery cable for about a minute, replaced it and fixed the problem. Only issue is, this happens every couple of days. I'll probably continue to do this till my xm subscription runs out then to heck with it.

Sony XM-1652Z


What head unit do you have?
Is there a dedicated subwoofer output?
If not, have you switched the rear output to sub output?
Is the amplifier set to LPF (low pass filter), and the gain turned up?
Many things can be wrong, but the fact that there is anything coming out of the subs is a good thing.
Start at the beginning - Head unit, then check amplifier gain/crossover setting.
If you are using a hi level adapter on factory radio, is the Bass on the radio up? is the output gain on the convertor up?

XM Direct


Resetting the head unit will make it look for anything that is connected to it recently or even already is for a long time. Make sure your head unit's memory cable is constant power (direct to battery) to retain in its memory that the xmdirect2 unit is already connected. There must be a loose cable when it is not recognized as a source like the power cable from the adapter which should be on constant power. You should hear a click sound on the xmdirect2 module whenever you turn to xm source on the radio. The CC tech that was actually solved the problem by chance if he couldn't explain this to you. Loosing signal is different

XM Direct 2


On the adapter cable if there is a separate cable for power connect the positive directly to battery power as opposed to ignition. The memory resides on the xmdirect2 module not on the head unit.
