I'm having a problem with my XM Delphi. I put the reciever in the cradle and it won't turn on. The power source is ok (i even bought a new adapter), it just won't turn on. Any help please?

    receiving power screen flicker constant not able to power off or on no display

    I have the same problem. Most days it takes HOURS before it will come on-then if I turn it off, say to fill up with gas, and restart, it won't come back on. It worked great for about 2 yrs and then all of a sudden this has started.



    Any clue as to the problem???

    Same problem with both power cord and car cord. Tried cleaning contacts. Could it be the battery is bad and needs a good battery to use external power? My problems started shortly after 1 yr of use. Cannot even charge battery anymore. No power at all with external power source.

This is likely solder that is breaking loose. I would take this apart and take a look at it. If it is soldering a pretty easy fix, if you can solder.

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.

Did you try putting batteries in it and seeing if it powers up then? Also you could try a different power supply.

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!

Powering up Delphi SkyFi 3


I found the soloution to my problem on the "Shop Delphi" website. I had to do a hard reset described at this link:

It erased all memory in the Skifi and reset everything back to factory specs, but I have my radio back.

New Delphi installation over older delphi car kit


Just installed the xpress RC in my Durango, replacing my SKYFi2. Both units are Delphi (all of the newer xpress RC's are made by Audiovox now, but Amazon sent me the Delphi made unit). Everything swapped out with the exception of the 12dc power cord. Had to use the one included in the new unit, plug size that goes in the new cradle for the RC is different. In the new unit I did get two "user guides" in Spanish and none in English (I wish America would adopt one friggin standard language. English) but other than that it was quick and painless.
