View Full Version : Sirius-XM module swap

08-07-07, 11:40 AM
Wondering if anyone has done this. I have an 04 SRX with XM. I changed the module out over the weekend. The question I had is that I wanted to use the XM antenna already monuted on the roof. That antenna has 2 leads that plugged into the XM module. One lead is black and the other is baige. I am currently using the baige one and everything is working but every so often I get this backround static. I was going to change over to the black lead but thought I would post out for some help. Thanks

The thing is I don't loose signal, I hear the static under what is currently playing. Did that connector fix the issue? I am wondering if both have to be used and why do we have 2 to begin with.

After driving with it for the past few days seems like the static is electrical and related to the brake. Times when I hit the brake the static will come on and stay on until I hit the brake again. I don't have this issue with the radio or cd or the XM module. So I am wondering if it is the Sirius module or the XM antenna. I am going to try using the Sirius antenna to see if that does anything.

If anyone could offer some insight or suggestions it would be very much appreciated!
