    Use an FM modulator. It broadcasts the signal for approximately 6 feet, and can be picked up by your Car Stereo set to a particular station.

My old unit stopped working;(worked perfect for many years) so I replaced with a new same model and I have bad interference and FM static. Sometimes the FM station overrides the express radio and all you...


The very first XM radios, (SkyFi2, MyFi, Roady2) up until they were put in red boxes, had a VERY strong FM transmitter, so strong, that when Sirius was their enemy, they complained to the FCC and they made the FM transmitters real weaklings. So unless you have one of the first two batches of XM radios, the FM transmitters now are real junk and you're better off using an AUX input on the radio or a cassette tape adapter. Okay? Thanks.

How do i remove a stuck cassette tape from a 1994 chevy truck player?


Does it make noise or move when you hit the eject button? If so, slide a butter knife under the exposed edge of the tape drive adaptor about an 1/8" and hit the eject button. Just a little upward pressure should help it release. It the eject button has no effect, you may need to pull the radio out, open the cover and manually turn the eject drive assembly.

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

The static level is so high I am unable to hear the radio.


Under menu, select FM frequency. Try using different frequency. A nearby FM station could be bleeding its signal onto the FM frequency your unit is using by default.

My delphi roady plays through cassette adaptor. Volume is very low even when audio level is moved all the way up. ???


You need to cycle back through after puttung the cassette in. Mine did that (before the cassette feature stopped working altogether) and I would press my "source" button so it would go from the cassette to the radio, then CD and back to the cassette - the sound would be back to normal again.

Cassette players jammed


actually you can not lubicate the cassette players. it has to do with a belt inside. your players may need to be demagnitized. i would go to radio shack or electronic store and try a cassette cleaner/demagnitizer and see if that solves the problem. i would even try different batteries or a ac power adapter if you have the plug. some batteries make units run slow. i would even get a can of dust cleaner that you find in the electronics section. you spray it in and it cleans the inside of the dust that may be inside.

I have XM radio hooked to cassette player adapter in my car. The new adapter keeps sounding like it is rewinding. XM plays for 30 seconds and then ''rewinds'' again, over and over.


Unfortunately your tape play has the auto reverse feature. It is detecting that the tape is not turning via a reel counter. Sensing no movement ( as you have an audio adaptor inserted rather than a real tape) it is trying to switch to the other side of the tape.
Not very much you can do.
You could purchase an FM modulator and basically re-transmit the Xm over an un-used frequency on the FM band to slve your problem

Have SkyiFi 2 and use with cassette adapter - but, want to use in other dar


From the XM user's manual, page 14.

1. Make sure your SKYFi2 is turned off. Unplug any accessory from SKYFi2’s audio jack.
2. Turn on an FM radio and place it close to your SKYFi2.
3. Tune the FM radio to each of the following FM frequencies: 88.1, 88.3, 88.5, 88.7, 88.9, 106.7, 106.9, 107.1, 107.3, 107.5, 107.7, and 107.9.
4. Note the frequency that has no FM station or the least amount of interference.
5. Turn on your SKYFi2.
6. Press the “menu” button.
7. Use the scroll wheel to select “FM Frequency.” Press the “XM” button to confirm.
8. Use the scroll wheel to select the frequency noted in step 4. Press the “XM” button to confirm.
9. Press the “menu” button to return to the main menu and then again to return to the play screen.
10. You should now hear XM programming over your FM radio. If the sound is not clear or you hear
interference or static, try another frequency by repeating the process above.

FINDING A RADIO FOR A SEMI TRUCK


Those measurements are a standard single DIN automotive radio.
You need to find a "XM ready" or "With XM controls" radio and install a separate XM receiver box. For example this would be the in dash deck:  http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Product/Item/Main.aspx?o=p&showAll=N&g=300&i=158XRCA350&tp=5684 And this is the XM receiver: http://www.xm-radio-satellite.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=3951
I would suggest finding an in dash receiver that also does HD radio as well as XM.

Noise with casette adaptor


Well Jill the problem you are having is called inducted noise. The lighter power adapter cord is inducting electrical current to the cord used by the cassette adapter thus creating the the noise you've been hearing. Do your best to separate the two cables as much as possible. I realize that your unit may have both cords coming out of th same side, and that's fine. the longer the run of wire, the easier it is to have induction issues. If the cords do come out on the same side, run one up and the other down away from the other cord. Do not coil the lighter adapter or cord either, it increases the chance of being able to induct noise. If your unit is to close to the lighter assembly you may need to move the unit to another location in the vehicle itself to help combat the noise issue. Other options include to shield the cassette adapter wire, i use aluminum tape for heating/ac ducts. The only other option i can see is purchasing a FM modulator which will transmit the units sound wireless-ly through an FM radio channel. You will want to check and see...i do believe most XM radios have a FM modulator built in. Hope this helps, and good luck.
