Question about Audio Players & Recorders
My 2004 GMC Sierra has factory XM radio. I have started developing an intermittent problem. The left channel of the system goes out and only plays on the right side. It is only when tuned to the XM bands. The FM/AM/CD/Cassette bands are fine. The problem is intermittent and seems to be effected by temperature and terrain. I can only assume that it is an input connection problem but where is the input for the XM system? Thanks

SOURCE: xm will not work
i understand that you're only getting preview channels..and had the radio for almost 3 years....yes, they might be correct that your radio was broken already...but, have you ever asked them to refresh the signal into your radio? If you want you can do it online at www.refresh.xmradio.com all you to do is to key in your 8-digit radio i.d(can be found on ch. 0) then click submit...it'll give u the activation instructions...that u need to follow faithfully..if this won't work..i'll get back to you next week..Godbless!

hi Mr.Frazier....is the xm radio hardwired installed? if it's a yes you have to go to a professional(bestbuy, retailers) to have the connection check.. the problem is not within the xm radio..it's on how it was installed or set up...
If the radio was not built..well, that's much better we just have to check the audio connection from you're xm to fm radio (make sure to check if what band it is connected..such as AUX,CD etc.) if there's a sound but you're only getting preview channels..refresh must be send on the radio...you can call xm to ask for that OR do it online at www.refresh.xmradio.com and type in your 8 digit radio I.D just have to follow the activation instruction faithfully...Godbless!

hi there..there are few ways on installing xm into your car..you can use the FM Modulation that you're doing before..it goes like this...make sure that you're xm radio is turn off( with all the wirings unplug).....then, you just have to go on a blank channel(e.g 90.1) on your car radio...afterwhich, turn on your xm radio and go to MENU....and look for FM settings...and select the same frequency you have into your car radio...and just have to wait for 5 to 8 secs and you should be getting the prev. channels.....
IF: you're only getting prev. channels such as 1, 130 etc...you just have to call xm to send a refresh signal OR you can go to www.refresh.xmradio.com if you want to save more time...just type in your 8 digit radio I.D....
you're not getting the FM settings.....you just have to click the MENU and select the 'default settings/factory settings' then turn off/on your radio to save the changes...
i'm sure it'll work nowq at this time....Godbless!

SOURCE: 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

I was thinking how can I trick the cassette into keeping the cassette in there because every time I put it in, it just came right back out
This is what I did
Go and find a real cassette and cut out a little piece of the cassette tape and set that aside
Every cassette is different so find a way to attach tape from a real cassette to the cassette part of the cassette adapter
You need to attach the tape so it is flat over the head of the cassette just like in a real cassette, which is the part where the music is transferred, once u get it over the head the cassette deck will think it is a real cassette and it will stay in the deck, the tape doesn't even need to be perfectly flat like in a real cassette tape, it can be all messed up and it will still work but flatter is probably better, so you are just tricking the deck into believing that it is a real cassette, it worked for me and hopefully it will work for you, tell me how it works out
