Question about XM Radio (XMP6000)

1 Answer

"Antenna" prompt Just got my second xm Express radio with Sure connect antenna. On the first one as well as this one the sure connect is not working. If I plug in the regular XM antenna, it's fine. I have to believe somethings not right with the connection. It does not come with any install instructions, but it looks like a no brainer. I have called tech support and they are no help at all. Can my regular radio work properly if my antenna is bad? And how does an antenna go bad in the first place? Thanks in advance. Steve

Your sure connect antenna is bad that is why you get this message or you have something hooked up wrong check the power and ground on the unit if it has one .... some have it, some dont but most of the time its just a bad wire

My xm receiver says no signal - everything is connected properly - acct is up to date


With a Satellite Radio receivers you need to make sure the Antanna is on the top of the car. with nothing obstructing it. As it pulls the info from a Satellite. Now some bigger cities have terrestrial Antenna. But check the line for the Antenna make sure there is not bare wires showing and make sure that it is not damaged in any way.

You need a FM direct adapter its plugs in behind the radio in your antenna. the part number is FMDA25its says Siruis but it works for XM.

Signal drifts in and out


Make sure that your Xm antenna has a clear view of the sky. If your antenna cable is ok, and the antenna is in a clear location, and the antenna cable is properly plugged into the unit,
Also, if you're in an area with alot of tress, mountains, tall buildings etc... this can cause the signal to fade in and out.

XM radio portion just quick working..display on DEH-P6500 reads "antenna"..any things we can try out?


No experience with this issue, but in your shoes I would check the satellite antenna connection into the back of the unit. From there, I would chase the wire and make sure it is not frayed. If that does not resolve or lead to a resolution of the issue, borrow an XM antenna and see if it will work then. If not, then something has happened internally with the head unit, most likely at the antenna connection jack.

I have XM radio in my chevy malibu. Worked fine


I believe when the antenna loses power it does not show it on the screen sounds like there might be a break in the antenna wire or simply came out of socket in the rear of the radio.

XM receiver starts up and then shuts down


I had a similar problem with a portable XM radio. The antenna, connection and cableall looked fine, however, the centre conductor of the antenna lead was damaged where the lead went through the door jamb. Look for any type of crimp in the antenna cable and if so, either get someone to repair the lead, or get a replacement antenna.

Broken antenna cable. Likely you have a kink or worn thru point on the wire somewhere.
