I have a 2008 Sonata with satellite radio issues also. Everytime it rains and I have to do any traveling in it, the storage box located in the trunk floods and shorts out the receiver,LIKE OVER THE WEEKEND!!. This will be the fourth replacement and they (Dealership)still cannot fix the problem.
First, turn the radio on and off using the POWER button on the radio - do not just turn off the car or unplug it. Next, make sure your 'sleep timer' isn't set. Next, check your antenna signal level and make sure you're in a location that has at least 2 bars - move until you do.
Now, make sure that you leave the radio ON Channel 1 for at least a half an hour. You should then have your channels back - when you do get all your channels back, turn the radio on and off with the POWER switch, not by unplugging the unit, or pulling it out of the dock or turning off the car. Okay?
I have same problem and sure connect did not help. The unit works fine otherwise except will not send a signal to my car radio. I will try removing the battery today & if this does not work I will do t paper clip reset in the battery compartment.
i understand that you're only getting preview channels..and had the radio for almost 3 years....yes, they might be correct that your radio was broken already...but, have you ever asked them to refresh the signal into your radio? If you want you can do it online at www.refresh.xmradio.com all you to do is to key in your 8-digit radio i.d(can be found on ch. 0) then click submit...it'll give u the activation instructions...that u need to follow faithfully..if this won't work..i'll get back to you next week..Godbless!
Those measurements are a standard single DIN automotive radio.
You need to find a "XM ready" or "With XM controls" radio and install a separate XM receiver box.
For example this would be the in dash deck: http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Product/Item/Main.aspx?o=p&showAll=N&g=300&i=158XRCA350&tp=5684
And this is the XM receiver: http://www.xm-radio-satellite.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=3951
I would suggest finding an in dash receiver that also does HD radio as well as XM.
Does the radio have a full subscription? Next, check the "Preset/Direct" button and push it until "direct" is lit up. Then you can directly enter the channel number. Also, you can go into the MENU and set what channels to skip and jump to. My guess is that you bumped the "Preset/Direct" button and your radio is in "PRESET A or B or C" - you need direct. Try that first, than get back to me - okay? BTW, I'm assuming you're talking about an XM satellite radio like the one in the photo?
