Hi, the best thing to do is to get another antenna because joining the antenna cable may not work and if it manages to work, it won't give you the optimum satisfaction you will get as compared to a proper one..

Take care

You can try to power cycle the receiver and try to unplug the antenna and plug it back in. Another option is to check the cord for any frays or cuts.

Radio not working


if it's a sirius sat radio check the wire to the antenna, there could be a splice somewhere along the line(a new antenna is abot $35 dollars at Walmart)....if it's the jeep radio itself, it could be a fuse...the radio is blown or the antenna cable has a bad connection....

Check your antenna wire to see if it is spliced or cut. If you do not recognize a problem still you can usually get very good help from calling Sirius. They have been good about trouble-shooting and repairs.

Can sirius antennas be cut and spliced back together




If your antenna cable has been cut or severed, it can be repaired without the need for a replacement.

You will need the following things:


Small 600 degree soldering iron and solder.
Liquid flux for soldering the braid.
Small sizes of heat shrink tubing.
Small heat gun.
Small pliers, cutter, and Xacto knife.




1) The first step is to use the Xacto knife to cut both ends of the antenna cable so you have a clean end.

2) Using the Xacto knife roll the cable on a board and gently cut all around the cable to cut the outer insulation. Remove about 1/2 inch of the insulation from each end.

3) Push the braid back to expose the center wire and gently roll the cable and cut the center insulation to expose about 1/10 inch of the center wire. With your small long nose pliers, bend the center wire into a small hook shape.

4) Repeat all the above steps on the other end of the wire.

5) Put a 1 inch piece of heat shrink tubing on one end ( the black piece), and a 1/4 inch piece of heat shrink (the white piece) on the center conductor. Look at the picture to see this.

5) Hook the two ends together. Gently squeeze the hooks closed and solder them together. Be very careful when soldering this. Be quick so you do not apply to much heat and cause the heat shrink tubing to shrink on the side where you do not want it to be.

6) Slide the small white heat shrink to cover the cooled solder joint you just made and use the heat gun to shrink the tubing in place.


7) Now push the braids back together to cover over the connection you just made. Try make the braid smooth together by GENTLY rolling the cable between your fingers. Carefully solder the braid. A little liquid flux on the braid prior to soldering helps the solder flow and makes it look better.

8) Slide the final piece of heat shrink tubing over the braid and shrink it with the heat gun.

You may have to go to your nearest electronics store or Sirius vendor to see if they have an extension cord...as a Sirius customer i never seen one though......Your best bet is to remount the antenna to the forward part of the roof, towards the windshield.

Sirius radio with xm antenna


Not advised. They have different resistance and are set up for different Sat signals. Chances are you will decrease the life of your radio if you get a signal at all.
