No XM radio detected when I toggle through my sources... also no FM reception
I just got a new JVC KD-DV4200 in dash stereo and a Terk XMD1000 receiver and the Terk JVC adaptor.
I have to reset my JVC unit every day because I lose XM reception. In fact, my unit stops recognizing the Terk unit completely. When I toggle through my sources with the source button, it just toggles back and forth between FM and CD mode. However, no FM stations are picking up at all either. Very strange.
After I reset the JVC stereo, everything works fine again for a little while. But only for a little while.
Has anyone encountered this problem before?

You need to have one wire on an always 'hot' power feed. Be careful, as some GM products have a timer that shuts off the power after a 10 minute timer, so that could be your issue. Are you talking about a factory installed XM, or one like the photo above?
Are you playing it directly thru your FM antenna connection, or using the RCA jacks? You have to set the FM modulator level. It is also possible that you have a new FM radio with a type of ALC that will raise the lever regardless, but your regular car radio volume control should work. do not wire this directly to a power amp, as you won't have the control that you need. Good luck, let me know more.
The most common way is to use the auxiliary input of the deck or head unit. However I don't believe the JVC model you have has one of these. Don't despair though. Head to your local department store with a music department and pick up a universal FM modulator ($20-$30).
These will 'pretend' to be an FM radio station inside your vehicle. Attach the stereo mini plug to your walkman or other audio device (mp3 player etc.) Then tune the FM Radio to the fm station listed on the FM modulator and you will be able to listen to the device through your car stereo speakers. Now this isn't as clean as a direct hookup but for most its an economical way to listen to alternate sources on your Car Stereo.
U need to order the Terk XMD1000 Direct XM Tuner Box. Its Search on the internet for it.I bought mine on xmradio.com. Cost is 49.99. Its comes with the antenna and box. Your XM radio code is on the box. Go aline and setup an account with SiruisXM and its going to ask for that code. once you do that. Ensure you are not under any cover to get a good signal and it will tell you to go to a certain channel. Then you will be pulled in. if you have any issue contact me at [email protected] or [email protected]. I will walk you through. Good luck.
Inside the car there should be a splitter between the stereo itself and the antenna in a side plate
behind the dooor kind of under the dash follow your antenna wire from the stereo you should find the splitter along the way it may have came loose or even off
