    DESCRIBE ISSUE....
    My wife has had an intermittent issue with her XM radio. It began last year while we were on vacation in Arkansas. At that time I contacted XM and they walked me through a procedure and that seemed to have solved the issue. They initially tried to convince me to take the car to the dealership as the radio was probably the issue. Fast forward to today and a similar/different issue has surfaced. The radio just says "loading" and only works sometimes. I've spent the better part of 2hrs on the phone with XM tech support and needless to say I have gotten nowhere.....not much further than confirming my account.

    Anyone run into this issue?

    Thanks guys,

    Chevydude

    Sorry dude - no help from me.
    All I know about XM -
    did you do a signal refresh?
    The results may yield an answer -
    I do not know how to interpret the results.

    Yes, the XM folks did a refresh...no luck. Wondering if anyone has the Honda procedure on removing and replacing the antenna? Inexpensive and might be worth a shot.

    Thanks

    I am sorry - embarrassed to add this - but to answer your question.

    I know you CAN confirm signal strength from antenna to radio without disassembling.... we need a audio geek.

    I am searching some idea out - will post later.

    I trying to find a antenna 'splice' or connector somewhere in vehicle, where we could test before disassembling headliner - .

    I doubt manufacturing vehicle without a connector is done. Think of routing that as 1 wire.
