Delphi XM SkyFi 2 problem

I have a Delphi XMSkyFi2 and my problem is, I can turn it on and it will work for 1-2 hours or so, after that all of a sudden it will simply shut down. I have always been able to turn it back on and it will work for a while then shut off again. It is just annoying to have to turn it back on all the time.
Please advise if there is a solution.

Thank you,

Re: Delphi XM SkyFi 2 problem

Sounds like an overheating issue...try attaching a heat sink or attach it to the grill of your air conditioner and see if the problem goes away.

My skyfi 3 keeps displaying no signal and antenae is in the clear? Any recommendation. Ive updated firmware.

Your dock connector has a cold solder. Resolder the antenna pins to the board. The antenna pins are the 1 n-shaped pin (connects to 2 pads) with 1 pin in the middle. Resolder your middle pin.

How do i refresh xm radio ?

Go to Channel 0 and get your serial number. Then, make sure you have a good signal, leave radio on Channel 1 for 1/2 hours after calling 1-800-XM-RADIO and ask they to refresh your radio. They will tell you how long to wait - okay?

Need a manual

I would try the XM Radio DOT Com website and search for user manuals. It is relatively easy - a 3 on a scale of 1-5 to do.

Have difficulty with volume control on Delphi SkyFi. Turning volume knob produces a digital number of 1 to 3. Seems to work better after being warmed up. Can eventually get up to 12 or above. Anything I...

Do you have one of the original orange display SkyFi units, or a SkyFi2, or an XT? It sounds like you are using it in a boombox? The rotary dials do wear out on the SkyFi and SkyFi2 and there isn't much you can do - the knob may come off and you can spray in some contact cleaner, but that doesn't always work either. Using a remote control might be your only hope at this point unless you buy a new old stock unit off of eBay or the like. Good luck.

Delphi Skyfi2 won't turn on anymore.

I have the Skyfi 2 with car cradles. I have had them for about 7-8 years. I bought two brand new power cords to use with the cradles so I could move the Skyfi 2 to different vehicles. Neither power cord will power up the Skyfi 2 when in the cradle. I contacted the company I bought them from and they sent me two more cords. These cords are brand new as well. They too do not power the unit. My original power cord still powers the unit but I am trying to eliminate having to move it to each vehicle. I then bought a complete unopened kit from ebay. Using the new kit parts only, my Skyfi 2 will not power up. Did they change the kit since I bought mine and now it is not compatible. Everything looks identical so it is driving me nuts. Any help is appreciated, Thanks!
