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.

Where did you place the XM antenna on the vehicle? It's possible you have a defective antenna, but you can try a different mounting location. It needs to be on the outside of the vehicle, preferably on a large metal surface.

If you have the magnetic antenna, check it for a little nick on the cable on the outside of the car where water might get in to it. A little water can short the ground and the antenna wire. You also can wash (with lots of water around where the antenna cable is) and see if it happens again, then you will know it not just the weather

SOURCE: No Signal on my XM Radio

Lately I have been loosing the signal constantly in the house. I've tried different stations to see if it would be any better and it's not. I called xm and they refreshed my signal but it didn't do ant good. It's really annoying to constantly have the signal fade. Everything is hooked up right. This is been going on for about 5 months and my neighbors complain about the same thing.

Xm check atenna connection


If you are getting the same "check antenna" message with two different antennas, it is likely that the tuner itself is the problem. You can get just the mini tuner here:

As far as the two plug connection, there are adapters available. Its likely a dual fakra connection, though I don't know for sure. At any rate, this is one adapter available. (I would call to confirm)

How do i install the xm receiver?


Yes, the unit should have a FM mode where you can use it to transmit the signal over your FM stereo. The unit should come with a FM transmitter and it should be in the instructions on how to install it. All you have to do then is make the unit play on the same station your radio is on.

Resetting the head unit will make it look for anything that is connected to it recently or even already is for a long time. Make sure your head unit's memory cable is constant power (direct to battery) to retain in its memory that the xmdirect2 unit is already connected. There must be a loose cable when it is not recognized as a source like the power cable from the adapter which should be on constant power. You should hear a click sound on the xmdirect2 module whenever you turn to xm source on the radio. The CC tech that was actually solved the problem by chance if he couldn't explain this to you. Loosing signal is different

MyFi FM Modulator Stopped Working?


hi there..there are few ways on installing xm into your car..you can use the FM Modulation that you're doing before..it goes like this...make sure that you're xm radio is turn off( with all the wirings unplug).....then, you just have to go on a blank channel(e.g 90.1) on your car radio...afterwhich, turn on your xm radio and go to MENU....and look for FM settings...and select the same frequency you have into your car radio...and just have to wait for 5 to 8 secs and you should be getting the prev. channels.....
IF: you're only getting prev. channels such as 1, 130 etc...you just have to call xm to send a refresh signal OR you can go to www.refresh.xmradio.com if you want to save more time...just type in your 8 digit radio I.D....


IF:
you're not getting the FM settings.....you just have to click the MENU and select the 'default settings/factory settings' then turn off/on your radio to save the changes...

i'm sure it'll work nowq at this time....Godbless!

My XM just recently started to cut out in certain locations that had no problem before. It seems to be getting a good signal the screen display does not cut out. I lose volume and get static just in certain spots. Anyone know where I should start looking for a fix.

Chances are it's not picking up the XM signal. First, contact XM to resend your setup. if that doesn't work check your antenna connections.

XM reciever FM transmitter problem


hi Mr.Frazier....is the xm radio hardwired installed? if it's a yes you have to go to a professional(bestbuy, retailers) to have the connection check.. the problem is not within the xm radio..it's on how it was installed or set up...

If the radio was not built..well, that's much better we just have to check the audio connection from you're xm to fm radio (make sure to check if what band it is connected..such as AUX,CD etc.) if there's a sound but you're only getting preview channels..refresh must be send on the radio...you can call xm to ask for that OR do it online at www.refresh.xmradio.com and type in your 8 digit radio I.D just have to follow the activation instruction faithfully...Godbless!
