Question about Tao XM2go Satellite Radio Receiver

Radio shuts off for no reason w/ or w/out battery, home and car

It just started doing this recently, and I was thinking it was just wearing out. I bought it new in 2005. Any suggestions?

    I found it was the battery. They do not last forever, and the original battery it came with was actually recalled by DELPHI. I changed the battery and we are still using the receiver. FYI parts and used receivers are cheap on ebay.

Motherboard


I would think its a mother board problem. it could also be a processor or ram problem, as its 8 years old i would think its lasted a good long time. there are meany reason for the motherboard to start to play up. they have smd capacitors inside and over time they wear out and start causing problems or regulator chips for voltage start to wear out. it could even be that its just old. you have done well to have one last 8 years. most you would get 3 to 5 years. so it was well made for its time.

Have you checked your alternator? Watch the battery guage and see where it is when the car is running. If it's below the 1/2 way mark, you may not be getting enough voltage to keep the battery charged. Otherwise there may be a loose battery cable either at the battery or at the engine. Check the ground wire at the engine block and make sure the positive is tight at the starter. There is also an alternator fuse; check the owners manual for the location.

Mine just started this recently.


Sounds like the battery is not charging. My solution was to use a small screwdriver to move the charger pin in the power adapter hole in the under off center. That gave it better contact, it began to charge properly and fixed my issue.

Brand new battery is dead with nothing left on. Bad ground?


Remove positive battery terminal from battery & put a 12 volt test light in line between cable & battery post. As long as 12 volt light is illuminated, you have a draw. Start pulling & re-installing fuses, one at a time,until you see it dim or go out. If it goes out, you found your draw. If it dims, slight draw, such as radio memory etc. if all else fails, make sure you know where they all go, then pull them all, and start putting back one at a time. When light comes on bright, you found the circuit causing the draw.

Think there is a battery drain somewhere


Their is possibly a short. I would first isolate the problem. Disconnect the CD player and radio. If you can disconnect it then remove the radio fuse.

Start and drive the car for 15 minutes or so. Shut it off, and let it sit for a while. Then go out and start the car. Repeat this until you are sure that your problem is with the radio or wiring.

If The car fails to start and is having a repeat of the problem you have a parasidic draw on the battery from somewhere.

Tao XM2go shuts off for no reason


You could try taking the batteries out and cleaning the contacts, replacing the batteries and/or using sellotape to hold the batteries in place. They could be loose and disconnect when you move it in a certain way. If not the batteries, you could try further dismantling and cleaning, but you may just end up with a clean ball of sellotape that still has problems...! worth a try. stoodleysnow
