SOURCE: No XM Audio, no fault indication

Buss cable is plugged into the wrong connector on the GEX-P920XM. The installation manual is not clearly written, the figure in the manual is correct.

You will need extra amp(s) to run 5.1 surround sound using out IP-Bus at the brain to in IP-Bus at the processor and rca output to the multi channels amp(s) and control the surround mode which is automatically activate by the format of the disc. The IP-Bus cables is colored polarized at each end to inter connect all components. Just hook them in series follow the color you may add all the components you have. You can also down load wiring diagrams at pioneerelectronics.com. Goodluck.

Turn the radio on an locate the Radio ID
For XM Radios

Your Radio ID can be displayed by tuning your radio to channel 0. (That's one channel down from the XM Preview.) Make sure to check your ID code carefully. Please note that the following letters are not used: I,O, S, and F.

It sounds like the radio is not activated. If it isn't, go to xmradio.com and follow the instructions to activate it. If you have activated it, and you are still getting only two channels, either go to xmradio.com or call them and you can "refresh" the activation.

Can't get refresh signal to work for xm radio


to reset the radio - it must be removed from the dash and unplugged.
Be sure to write down any anti-theft codes if your radio requires them.

However - since your radio is getting the 2 channels - it is working properly. The problem lies in XM turning on your account.

Be sure to get the correct # off the radio... sometimes there is a transposition error with paperwork.
The number can be gotten by setting your radio to channel 0. This is your radio ID# required to activate the radio.

Your Radio is working fine - call XM and stay on the line until they activate your account.

I have a suspicion the number was written down improperly.

Be sure when you call that the car is on, and that it is tuned to station #1... also - it can take 15-20 minutes to activate - and must be left on for the duration to catch the activation signal that is sent out.

Here are the steps from XM to activate manually-

Get Your XM Radio Activated Online

Step1 Turn on your XM radio and tune it to channel 0. The display will read your XM radio's identification number. This number will include both letters and numbers. Write this number down and head to your computer.

Step2 Log onto the Internet and go to the XM radio website. A high speed connection to the Internet will make this go faster, but you can activate your XM radio online with dial up.

Step3 Click on the tab that says to activate a new XM radio. This will take you to a screen where you will enter your XM radio's identification number. Type this in.

Step4 Choose a screen name and password to make an account on the XM web site. The screen name should be something that you will easily remember. The password needs to be at least 7 characters long and include 1 capital letter, 1 lowercase letter, and 1 number.

Step5 Enter your personal information for the activation of your XM radio. This information will include your name, address, and email address. You will also need to choose which service plan you will want to purchase for your XM radio. Enter your credit card payment to finish purchasing your activation of your XM radio online.

Step6 Turn on your XM radio and tune it to channel 1. XM will send a signal out to your XM radio to activate it. You will need to leave the radio tuned to channel 1 for 15 to 20 minutes to activate it.


If you have additional questions or concerns - please ask me first before moving on to another expert.
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Sirius Radio Invalid Channel message


1) Do you have a Sirius account?

2) Have you called Sirius and given the serial number of that receiver?

Those are the first two things you have to do to get a Sirius receiver working. (The original owner could have changed his account to use his new receiver, if he has one.) Go to http://www.sirius.com/install - the "activate" part - for details.

Setting up an account


In order to solve this problem, personally view the ID number of the radio in the car just to be sure, and call XM's 800 number once again.

Explain to them that even though this radio is on another account, it is permanately installed in your vehicle. Explain that the information they have on file must be the old owner of the vehicle and ask to see if the account is current or if it is old and unused. Tell them that any balance on the account is not your problem and that the radio came with your vehicle from a dealer. If they tell you the account is very unused and very old then ask them to please apply this radio ID to your new account that you need to create with them right then.

This kind of mismanagement of new customers is what big companies need to watch out for and stop doing. They need to recognize that a new owner of a car radio is not working for their accounting department and is not responsible for the former car owners satellite radio debt.

Xm not working


I had a short in my TERK antenna and it gave me the same problem.

If you know someone else using xm, you can try their antenna to see if that is.

I took mine to Best Buy and they had one they checked it with.





Best of Luck.

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.
