Question about XM Radio (XMP6000)

3 Answers

No Signal For the past couple weeks I've had a problem with the signal for my XM radio not coming through. At first it was sporadic, but now when I turn my receiver on it just says "Antenna" and nothing plays. Any ideas?

    I have had my XM radio for 4 years, lately I have been getting sporatic reception, then all of a sudden the other day, when I returned to the car after about 4 hours later, the radio read out antenna and would not work at all. Is my antenna dead and needs replacing or possibly a frayed wire? Ant suggestions? Larry Rogers

    I recently install my XM from my old car into my new one. It worked perfect for several weeks now I get 'no signal' for long periods of time then the next day or later in the day it works fine.I was very careful when running the wires that I did not pinch or cut them.

How do I refresh my XM signal?
The refresh signal will be sent from a satellite, so make sure your vehicle is outside and your antenna has a clear view of the sky. Turn your radio on and tune to Channel 184 for Sirius radios or Channel 1 for XM and SiriusXM radios. Simply tune to Channel 4 to verify your signal. http://siriusxmca.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/252/~/resending-your-radio-signal

Sirius radio problems

I would do the following, hoping one of them works.

1) DISCONNECT the power to the radio and SiriusXM unit to "clear" it. Then reconnect and ask Sirius to resend signat.

2) Ask Sirius to UNSUBCRIBE that radio so it is deactivated. Then, have them reactivate and resend programing signal.


3) Be sure your car is outside under clear sky when Sirius sends the program signal.


4) It is possible the antenna cable to your unit is loose at the connections and/or damaged. A weaker signal may get your stations, but may prevent the additional Navigational signals. Have the antenna checked thoroughly and tested. If car is still under warranty, this should be a covered diagnostic/repair.

5) Finally, be sure the correct Radio Serial Number is being activated. If your radio works, that is one service. But maybe they are putting a wrong number by some chance into the system to fix this one? For example, you have TWO radios in TWO cars. Are they sending the turn on signal to the WRONG radio? Not as farfetched as you might think.

Good luck!

Static sound or no sound with FM Trans and with Audio Plug

I agree with you. It sounds like an internal audio circuit problem, especially if the tape adapter does the same thing. Have you tries headphones on the unit? If they work, then get the sure connect as it plugs into the headphone jack (Aux out jack)

By the way, you as an XM customer for years, usually XM will just give you another unit to keep you as a customer. I've seen it many times. Couldn't hurt to ask!
