XM Radio Sign In

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy XL SLE. I have a xm radio which I would like to conect to the radio speakers. I would like to connect without using radio stations because these have a lot of interference. I do not have a cassett player in the vehical to connect to.

Re: XM Radio Sign In

There should be an AUX input on the radio that you can plug your XM reciever into.

Usually when there is a noise concern it is due to interference being transmitted into the power and ground system.


Quote
Some portable audio equipment may be susceptible to certain types of electronic noise present in the vehicle's 12V power outlet.

Here are two ways to eliminate this type of interference:

- If the audio device is capable of being self-powered (battery), use it that way instead of plugging it into the vehicle's power outlet.

- Have the customer purchase a Ground Loop Isolator, such as *Radio Shack Catalog #270-054. This device plugs in between the radio and the customer's audio device. It is packed with one included Y-Adapter. If purchasing the *Radio Shack product, you will require an additional Y-Adapter (Catalog #274-369). This device should be installed between the audio player and the AUX input of the vehicle radio.

These catalog numbers are stocked nationally at *Radio Shack Retail Stores in the U.S. and are currently available. Other similar products are available through other electronics or car stereo retailers defined as Ground Loop Isolators.

The noise interference is not electrical. The noise comes from an FM station that broadcasts near the FM station my XM radio And my vehical radio are tuned to. I drive long distances losing and gaining FM stations.

Re: XM Radio Sign In

I been reading some more on this and it seems that someone has come up with an adapter that you plug into the rear of the radio so you can have a aux port to plug into. It does require the removal of the radio for installation of the unit, but will give your XM reciever a direct line into the radio.

Here is a link to an example:

Re: XM Radio Sign In

XM and Sirius also make a part called an FM Direct Adapter. wich does work off of a radio station but it is hard wired . basically it works like a switch. when you have your sat. radio on it disconnects your outside antenna and pipes its signal into the radio through the antenna port. then when you want to listen to listen to normal radio just turn off your sat. radio and it reconnects the antenna like normal. that part usually costs about 20 bucks. use them all the time. and is alot cheaper than getting an adapter.
