Cadillac Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Tuning Discussion, Where to find Tech-II programmer - Chicago? in Cadillac Engine Technical Discussion; I need access to a Tech-II programmer to enable the XM radio feature in my Bose radio for my 2003 ...
I need access to a Tech-II programmer to enable the XM radio feature in my Bose radio for my 2003 CTS. I stopped in at the dealer and they want to charge me a full hour of labor ($140), which seems ridiculous given the 5 minutes it should take, and since the satellite receiver was only $50 to begin with.
I only have experience tuning Fords, so admittedly, I haven't used the GM tuners, but the service manager gave me some line about having to go through a learning cycle before they could get into those features, and it would take an hour.
So...does anyone know a shop, local or semi-local, where I could go get this done for a reasonable price? Any local techs I can buy lunch for? All help appreciated!
Is there a happy end to this story?
Did you get it activated after all?
Would you mind sharing the info/steps so other users can benefit as well?
I would really appreciate if you can tell us what steps has been taken to activate the XMRadio. I have the same problem, my car does not have an XM module, but I have installed a BFGM (Bluetooth Handsfree kit that integrates directly with the Head Unit to display the call information on the screen and the audio thru the car speakers) into the XM harness.
My guess is that if the XM is not activated, there won’t be power or signal to that harness and therefore my best bet for the BFGM to work is to enable the XM.
I took my car to the local dealer (Bahrain - Arabian Gulf), but they don't seem to know how to activate the XMRadio as they never seen one before.
