Question about XM Radio (XMP6000)

Open Question

I use my xm radio through the fm channels on my car stereo. The menu has the fm channels where I can program which station I want to set the xm radio on. Sometimes when I start the car the xm radio resets and the fm channels option doesn't show up on the menu screen anymore. I usually have to unplug everything and wait a few minutes before it will start working again. Is there something I can do to keep this from happening or is this a defect in my radio?

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

SOURCE: XM Loading Problem for Volkswagen

I had the same issue. I called XM multiple time to have the signal resent. I told them I was receiving the preview channels and nothing else. I asked them multiple times if it could be hardware issue and they said no. I took it to the dealer and they ran a test ($98) and determined that the unit had failed. They didn't charge me for the $800 unit, but they did charge me $300 for the installation. Its working fine now.

SOURCE: I have XM radio in my chevy malibu. Worked fine

I believe when the antenna loses power it does not show it on the screen sounds like there might be a break in the antenna wire or simply came out of socket in the rear of the radio.

2. Turn and press the Select dial to choose ‘Audio Setting’.
3. Select between ‘Stereo Allowed’ or ‘Forced Mono’.

FM Transmitter does not connect to car radio, have FX signal and Line out works.


Car cradle works "wirelessly" with Car Radio (inherent design of unit). Place Unit in Cradle; connect Cradle to Auto Power Source, and SkyFi3 should power on. Press Menu to Get FM Radio station channels; select a lower station Channel Frequency i.e. 88.3 or any vacant channel number and the signal should transfer to your Radio speakers automatically. You can change Station frequencies as often as you need to do so--for example if traveling through different broadcast areas, some channels frequencies are clearer than others. Good luck.

Delphi skyfi2 Xm Radio Receiver car connection


Yes, you can buy an FM Direct adapter that will allow you to transmit directly to your car FM tuner, but if you have an older SkyFi2, the Fm transmitter is so strong, you can sit the radio on the floor and tune your car radio to your preset XM channel, like 107.1 FM and it will work great. Go into "Menu" and pick a channel that's not used locally.

What or how do I install my Skyfi2 in my car without a tape deck?


Do you have a newer one (red and yellow box) or an older one (bubble box or white box?). If it says 'direct connect' in a reddish box it has a really cruddy FM modulator, if it is an older model from the clear plastic bubble box or white box, it has a really, really strong FM transmitter in it (so strong, the FCC outlawed it) and you can use it to transmit to an empty FM channel (within 50 feet of your radio!) So my answer is, simply go to the 'MENU" and under "FM Frequency" select an empty channel in your area, like 107.3MHZ and then set your car radio to 107.3 FM and it will come thru. You can also adjust the "Audio Level" in the MENU to make it even louder. Should work real well, Just check at the very ends of the FM band for channels first and try to set it 2 channels away from an active channel, so if you have a station on 106.5, you want to be on 106.9 or higher, etc.. Okay?

How do I get to radio tune


Turn XM Roady2 'on' using the POWER switch. Go to MENU and go the FM Frequency. Select your frequency of an empty channel in your area, then turn off the Roady2 using the POWER switch. Do NOT do this by turning the car on and off as it tends not to save any settings when you do that. Always use the POWER button. Also, the website 'Radio-Locator' has a utility that will help you find an EMPTY FM channel in your are for your XM radio to use! Good luck and let me know how it works out for you- okay?

MyFi FM Modulator Stopped Working?


hi there..there are few ways on installing xm into your car..you can use the FM Modulation that you're doing before..it goes like this...make sure that you're xm radio is turn off( with all the wirings unplug).....then, you just have to go on a blank channel(e.g 90.1) on your car radio...afterwhich, turn on your xm radio and go to MENU....and look for FM settings...and select the same frequency you have into your car radio...and just have to wait for 5 to 8 secs and you should be getting the prev. channels.....
IF: you're only getting prev. channels such as 1, 130 etc...you just have to call xm to send a refresh signal OR you can go to www.refresh.xmradio.com if you want to save more time...just type in your 8 digit radio I.D....


IF:
you're not getting the FM settings.....you just have to click the MENU and select the 'default settings/factory settings' then turn off/on your radio to save the changes...

i'm sure it'll work nowq at this time....Godbless!
