Loss of XM signal

Pioneer DEH-P4800MP head,GEX-P920XM reciever,Terk XM 9000 antenna.My radio will lose XM signal in wide open country with no physical interferences (trees,bridges,ect).I travel the entire country and the it happens mostly around large metro areas.The I20 coridoor at Dallas/FT.Worth is the worst,but it'll do it anywhere.Once cleared of the area it will work fine for hours.All connections are good and I've reset the reciever twice.Basically all I get from the vendors are blank stares and shoulder shrugs.Two of my buddies have Alpine systems with no problems.Is Pioneer just a piece of crap? PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Every time I turn off my Pioneer POS I have to refresh my radio. It keeps losing the channles so I'm left with only a dozen or so channells, none of my favorites. I have two other radios that don't have this problem. The others are not Poineer. XM tech support is horrible. They told me I need a new antenna. I asked how changing the antenna would keep my radio fromo losing the signal in 10 seconds and they had no answer.

The problem is amazingly simple.
The red wire goes to your ignition so it turns the radio off when you power down your car so as not to discharge the battery.
The YELLOW wire is usually your memory and it connects to the power side of your fuse box (anywhere will do as long as it's powered when the car is off completely). Occasionally this wire is blue but it's rare.
This wire draws a tiny little bit of power so your stereo doesn't 'forget' your station settings etc.
BTW Pioneer is one of my favourites :)

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

I HAVE A AVH-P2300DVD WITH A GEX-P920XM AND WHEN I USE XM RADIO IT RESETS THE CHANNELS EVERY TIME I TURN THE CAR OFF. HOW TO FIX

One of the wires is either loose or not hooked up all together, i believe it is the ACC wire this keeps your settings in your system. Might have to pull it out of the dash and take a look.

Could my Terk XM antenna be bad right out of the blister pack?

Yes, it is possible, but go outside and face the SW and try it that way to make sure. If you have an unplugged or bad antenna, if will usually say "CHECK ANTENNA". Make sure you don't have a chunk of metal, or even your hand over the top of the mini antenna, or you WILL block the signal. Let me know how it works for you. good luck!

Every few seconds a message will pop up asking me if i want to change the channel to MYMIX 001

Do you have a "TuneSelect" feature on this radio? If you do and the title matches, it will beep and ask if you want to switch. Go into the MENU and TuneSelect and Erase All; then you shouldn't be bothered by anything on any other channel.

Yes it does, I have proof.

Open a new window/tab browser. Click this link to the PIONEER WEBSITE PDF File for this cable. Please refer to page 7of 84, and look in the category "head unit group 1"... From the BOTTOM LEFT of this paragraph count up FIVE LINES, your Head Unit Model number is right there.

I hope this helps,

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 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.
