Does head unit say "ANTENNA" after installation?
Hello, I am sorry to revive this old but helpful thread.
I am trying to activate an XM receiver of the same type
but all I see is "SAT1-1 CH001 ANTENNA" on the display.
There's no audio either. I can get the serial number and
have tried repeatedly to get an activation signal, with no change.
I tested for continuity to the antenna from the connector
next to the map lights, and also to the audio head unit.
I could not get a reliable impedance/resistance reading with
a multimeter. Has anyone tried troubleshooting one of these
who might offer suggestions?
The windshield has been replaced (twice now) and it looks like
the coaxial shielding around the cable to the antenna near where it is mounted was damaged in the process. It does not seem to go all the way through to the antenna lead wire. I patched it with conductive material and wrapped the cable with self-sticking silicon tape. This did not fix the problem.
Aside from trying to replace the antenna, does anyone have any suggestions?
