Question about Pioneer AirWave XM2Go Satellite Radio Receiver with Home and Car Kit
My xm is 2 years old the word antenna show up on any antenna I hook too home,car or the built in antenna.
I also had the same problem. After carefully checking the vehicle docking station I observed the "male part" where the antenna wire is plugged into to be missing and some how it had broken off. The replacement for the vehicle docking station is about $45.00 from Pioneer. Way cheaper than getting a new radio.

The unit has an internal antenna (that is really poor) that is activated when you unplug the external antenna. This is why you get some signal when you unplug the unit.
I assume the problem is the antenna itself.
My suggesion is that you charge up the unit, take it to a place that sells XM equipment AND has a demo unit working. Be sure to take your docking station with you (it has the plug in for an external antenna). Ask the sales rep to please connect your unit to an external antenna to test your unit as you are trying to determine if your antenna is bad. If it works, you need a new antenna (cable may be cut on the inside or antenna may have water/weather damage). If it does not, then there is an electrical issue inside the unit and the unit itelf will need replacement/repair.
