    XM Radio Quit

    So the xm stopped working in the 04. I'm tempted to pull the radio out to check the ant leads in the back. This unit was replaced under warrantee alongtime ago. Maybe the ant pulled out? We also tried having XM resend a signal- no help. Any suggestions? thanks pat

    The xm radio tuner is a separate module and is not integrated into the head unit it is behind the dash on the passenger side and does require the dash being removed to get to it

    Re: XM Radio Quit

    so there's no reaching up in there to see if the ant cable is loose?

    Is the radio displaying xm error if yes then it's the tuner if its showing searching for signal then it's the antenna

    But there isn't a easy way to do what you want to do(that requires taking the dash apart just to access the tuner module which btw is vin encoded)

    Re: XM Radio Quit

    the radio just says " no xm signal".......about a year ago i had a message one day that said "weak xm signal" but never saw it again. I may just bring it to my local caddy dealer. I've spent quite a bit of time Under this beast lately!

    Most likely the antenna is bad

    As long as you don't get the xm error you won't have to worry about the tuner module needing replacing.

    no xm error..so that's good. sounds like changing the ant would be a pain in the neck.....but then again changing the fuel pump wasn't much fun either! i wonder if there's a write up for changing it?

    I'd leave that work to a dealer unless you like removing the headliner much more tricked then dropping the fuel tank as the sucker is glued to the roof

    Re: XM Radio Quit

    I'm sure i will leave it to the dealer- even though i'm resonably sure that they won't be as careful as i would be! but we'll see. they did some nice work on our CTS .

    The local dealer I go to has always took great care of my truck
    Work like this is best for them as they know how to remove the headliner without messing it up
