I cannot adjust the stations, switch to CD or Radio mode or anything as it's stuck on one XM station. The presets won't even change the station. I noticed the disp/title button seems to be sort of stuck...

Yes, Disp/Title stuck button could be cause of no other button function because one button can be operated at one time in these units and if any button stuck for some reason, other buttons would be inoperative.
Take off front panel by pressing eject button at lower left side and try to release Disp/Title button with finger nail, if that does not help then remove screws at back of front panel, take off back cover then take out circuit board carefully and press gently, little bit Disp/Title knob from inside front panel to send it back in its original position then put circuit board and put back cover and tight screws.
Check Disp/ Title button gives little click sound while pressing as other buttons give that sound. Put front panel in unit and check.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.

Press the source button to select fm, press and hold BTM button until Btm flashes. This will automatically store stations for you. Page 8 in this users guide covers same as well as manually setting stations. You do have the antena connected?

When car turned off&on, settings & radio stations stored are lost

There should be a red wire and yellow wire with connectors in the middle. swap the wires over, so red plugs into yellow, and vice versa.

2007 Chrysler 300 , AM radio not working , but FM works fine

Usually when you lose only AM it is an antenna issue. Check for a loose antenna plug on the back of the radio or connection to the antenna.

Alpine CDA-9820XM CD player trouble

remove the face plate again, in the lower right of the unit there is a tiny reset button (paperclip or pen required) press this button and see what happens this will reset all of your radio stations, audio settings and such, but if it works, may save you a trip to your local repair depot.. if this does not work, you probably need to take it to your local repair depot.. hehe

Problems with FM with

That is very typical of tuners designed for the US market; US FM radio stations use only the odd numbers. In most cases, tuners made for the US cannot be adjusted for use in other countries. However, a few have an "area" control that can be switched; usually it's part of the setup menu. Check out your owner's manual, if it's available.
