SOURCE: Sirius radio with xm antenna

Not advised. They have different resistance and are set up for different Sat signals. Chances are you will decrease the life of your radio if you get a signal at all.

You can get a Windshield Mounting kit and Sirius Unit and use the FM Frequency Modualator that is Built in and just not use the XM.

SOURCE: I have a 2009 Dodge Ram pickup with factory sirius

We had the same issue with our 2007 Dodge Ram truck. We use an external antenna when we have the camper on. You can buy these at various places on line. Get the car antenna not the home antenna. It magnetically mounts onto the truck so we put it on our hood and routed the antenna wire through the passenger side door. Our satellite box is behind the glove box. Remove the glove box and look up in the cavity. We were able to just unplug the factory antenna and plug the external antenna in. It's easy to switch back too. Just be careful with the antenna wire because it's fragile and any little bit of damage makes it useless.

Engine noise through sirius


First check fo good ground on lighter socket sometimes manufacture's use whats called a floating ground which is one wire connecting every socket for a ground . This creates what is called a ground loop and can create noise. Instead of rewiring try an inline noise filter. check with your local car audio store. Hope this helps. If not write back.

Unit keeps beeping and turning itself on and off. Have had this radio for 5 years and never a problem until now.


Hi sasutton,

SIRIUS-Ready radios are usually identified by the SIRIUS dog symbol appearing somewhere on the radio itself. A SIRIUS-Ready radio is a radio that may require the purchase of a SIRIUS tuner in order to be activated.

Every 90 minutes if you do not interact with the player, player display a notice and play a small audible alert to ask if you're still listening to the player. If you're not, the player will shut down after five minutes of the message being up there. If you are there, all you have to do is click the button and you can continue listening. Sirius player do this so that we're not streaming to computers that have no listeners, to maintain optimum performance for active listeners. You are probably not sitting at your computer when this message pops open which is why you get interrupted.



Good luck!
And Thanks.

Problem with Xact Communication XTR1 SIRIUS Radio Receiver


Turns out the radio isn't broken after all. In my research on your site I ran across a user who said he/she just plugged their radio in, turned it on and waited. I tried that and after a couple of minutes of a Sirius logo screen, then a blank screen followed by a high pitched beep the radio started playing again. I then remembered that one of the last things I input with the remote before the radio stopped working properly was mistakenly selecting an unwanted prompt on the AutoShutDown menu. When the radio finally came back on I selected Factory Default to reset all functions and now it operates properly. Thanks for the help.

Eclipse CD2000 has no sound from a cd or sirius... radio works


If you have an amplifier hooked up make sure that the correct blue wire on the harness is connected. One of the wires is the remote amp turn-on, the other is for a power antenna. That would be why your radio plays through your speakers, the power antenna wire' when the source is set to radio, sends a 12 volt signal. That would turn on your amp if thats the way that its hooked up.
