Need an In Dash XM Radio Installed on 1997 Honda Prelude

Do I have to buy a new car just to get an XM in dash radio? Can I buy a new XM unit and replace my existing am/fm cassette/tape in dash unit? I didn't like the add-on xm units. Thank you.

    What does high end mean? Which XM in dash model can I swap out with my original am/fm cd cassette receiver?

  • dmlippen Jun 19, 2008

    Why does the dash need to be taken apart? Do you mean that the XM receiver doesn't fit in the existing opening? Why did I receive 10 copies of the same email answer?

Check the antena.replace it if you can.wires of the other would be short somewhere.
if you have a dual xmp6000 your radio has xm built in. If you bought it new it came with the antenna- all you would have to do is activate it-www.xmradio.com. or call 1-800-967-2346

rate the solution if helped by it.

Hi-

No you don't have to, you can look for one in a surplus electronic shop or look for a brand new one. Have it replace is an option as well but, you have to put up extra money though since this is going to have a lot of work and stuff.... Oh well good luck... and have a nice day dude. Thanks for using fixya!

    this way you can mount the antenna and hid the converter reciver box under the seat or behind the dash. and control it all from the head unit. You can do it yourself if you just get a wiring harness for a jvc dash unit for your vehicle and it will just be plug and play.


    Thanks,

    well to install the new deck inside the dash where the factory stereo was. You will most likely need to open your dash. Its not that big of a deal if you get those recievers in a store they can install it for fairly cheap.

Well...there is an after market for this, but it's a little high end at this point.

    the high end, is when the dashboard is pulled off, the installation is completed, and then re installed.

I just got a 1999 Honda prelude and I had to disconnect the battery and the radio is asking for a code I’m planning on getting a new radio within the week but I’m not sure how I’m going to remove this...


the code you can from a honda dealer and if you are going to replace it you are going to have rip the whole radio console out and custom build the new radio into the space which be smaller to fill the space so it does not look like someone broke into your car and left with big hole in your dash board

2005 Honda CR-V won't go to XM radio.


"XM Ready" means that you have to have a satelite radio installed in order to have XM service. I went through this when buying my 2005 CR-V and thought that all I needed was to set up the service. If you have an XM receiver installed you can controll it on your Honda factory radio. It is very misleading.

1995 Jeep Cherokee Radio replacement


Most of the New Aftermarket Stereo's now have the Connections for Sirius and XM Built in so you just need the Sat. Install Box. Really Simple. If you want to go a Cheaper Route Just Purchase the XM or Sirius Reciever and Mounting kit for the Dash or Windshield and It will play through an Empty FM Station on the Radio Via the FM Transmitter. Got one in all of my Vehicles and they work Great!

You should disconnect the neg. battery cable and disarm the air bag. Remove the floor console and the front console panel, remove ashtray and ashtray holder, remove 2 screws holding the radio at the rear of the unit, carefully push unit out the front of the dash. When it clears enough, disconnect the antenna and multi pin connector. Remove the unit. Reverse to install. Enjoy the new sound system. countrycurt0

FINDING A RADIO FOR A SEMI TRUCK


Those measurements are a standard single DIN automotive radio.
You need to find a "XM ready" or "With XM controls" radio and install a separate XM receiver box. For example this would be the in dash deck:  http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Product/Item/Main.aspx?o=p&showAll=N&g=300&i=158XRCA350&tp=5684 And this is the XM receiver: http://www.xm-radio-satellite.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=3951
I would suggest finding an in dash receiver that also does HD radio as well as XM.

Xm radio


Egads, I imagine that the electrical system in your car is not properly shielded. You can attempt to locate the unshielded wires and cover them, shield the XM reciever (the interference is most likely within the reviever, not the antenna), or try repositioning the reciever in your car- unless it's in-dash. If it's in-dash, it may be that some of your audio cables aren't properly shielded also.
