I've lost my option to set the FM frequency on my Pioneer Inno. In fact, it's variable. Sometimes it popps up for a few seconds, but lately it's dsappearing before I can set it. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance

    My Inno will no longer work in my car. I have lost the Fm modulator option..even when it is properly placed in cradle. Any ideas?

  • ses246 Dec 26, 2008

    The menu option for setting the FM frequency will not come up on my Inno.
    It is in the car cradle and won't come up. Also, when it is in the home dock or the Delphi boom box, i cannot get the audio line out level setting to come up.
    Thus, the boom box is useless as I cannot get the audio level high enough for the boom box to pick it up.

    I've had my inno in my car for over a year and it has worked great. A week ago the signal was gone and I took it back to the installers to get the trunk-mounted antena fixed. They changed to frequency I was listening to but it worked great - for one day - then static. Now the Fm modulator is gone from the menu and I all I get is static.

    I am having the same problem. XM told me to contact the installer. It worked great for at least a year, then one evening it would no longer play in the car.
    When it is in the cradle I don't have the options for FM modulator. I know how to go to it as I have had to changed the frequency many times. At the same time it no longer plays in the home dock either. I have a signal, but no audio out.

Make sure it is docked in the docking cradle for the car. The option will not come up if the unit is not in the docking cradle.

I found a blog about modifying the home dock to enable the fm modulator: I tried it and it worked for me (proceed at your own risk!). I purchased the resistor for 99 cents at radio shack and soldered it to the board as suggested. The dock is assembled with small torx (star) screws but if you are very careful, you can remove them with a tiny screwdriver.

"Solder a 3.3Kohm resister between pin 9 and pin 10 of J4, on the "BUNA DOCK RF P5 card (inside the home dock). The card that the antenna plugs into. Send an email to if ur the type who has to see a pic. This mod is so easy "A Cave Man could doit". XM has the firmware checking the headphone jack, so don't plug one in. Happy modding! :-) "

I also purchased this phone holder: (using this coupon code: pdauhol) . I purchased an inno car charger, antenna, and sure connect fm booster on Ebay so I could use the home dock in my car for about half what a car kit would cost.

All you have to do in remove and re-install the battery. This clears the glitch and you will see the FM modulator menu re-appear.

Most FM modulators most commonly run on FM frequency 88.1 or 88.3 but usually have several options, so play arround with the stations in that range, and see if you get sound, also look under the dash for a toggle switch of sorts, sometimes the modulators have to be turned on..

Pioneer inno radio-doesn't work in car

When its in the car dock, the Inno sends an FM signal to the car radio. It does not receive a signal from the car radio. You must have the external antenna correctly installed outside the vehicle for the Inno to work. The built in antenna is disabled when the device is placed in the car dock. Make sure to test it outside, since garages or car ports will block the signal.

Pioneer GEX-FM903XM, system works great, however it often drops out and has just static. The signal indicator is strong. I think there is a bad connection into the radio. Where should I start...

It may be possible that the FM frequency chosen during setup, is in use in your area by a strong signal from a local station. Change to another frequency and see if the situation improves.

The following is from the Operation's Manual:

FM Modulator Setting
You can adjust FM Modulator frequency and output level.
7 Frequency
If output from the FM Modulator is hard to hear due to interference from a strong broadcast
station transmission, you can switch to another frequency.
You can adjust frequency between 87.9 and 90.1MHz.
7 Level
If the output sound is too quiet, too loud or distorted, you can adjust FM Modulator output
You can adjust level between “LEVEL–1” and “LEVEL–7”.
1. Press the POWER button for 2 seconds to enter the FM Modulator Setting

2. Select the desired frequency
with the left/right arrow buttons.

3. Increase or decrease the Level
with the up/down arrows (buttons).

4. To cancel the FM Modulator Setting mode, press the POWER button again
for 2 seconds.
• After entering the FM Modulator Setting mode, if you do not perform an operation within about 8 seconds, the FM Modulator Setting is automatically canceled.

Fm modulator on pioneer inno

I have learned due to fc regulations the fm modulator only works with the car kit. Looking into a device called a fm buddy that tricks the radio into thinking it's in the car kit so one does not have to pay the extra money for the whole car kit. I use a converter in my vehicle so I can use the home kit in my vehicle.

Unable to hook my Panasonic inno to my car stereo

Not sure if this will help but I noticed that the modulator won't show up if you have your head phones, ear buds, cassette adapter etc. hooked up. Unplug any line out and see if it helps.
