Sat Radio And Then No Start

Recommended Posts

Had the car for 31K. Sat Radio worked this am. Get in the car this afternoon. No audio on XM - but display shows songs. FM, AM and CD works. Decide to restart car...see if that will "re-boot.", the cure all for cell phone and computer problems... Turn car off. Then go to restart and it just turns over - doesn't start. Try again it starts and now XM does work. Anyone have anything similiar happen?

"No audio on XM - but display shows songs."

I get the reverse every 20 starts or so in my Porsche. Radio plays last station it was on, but no display and can't change station. No problem starting car ever, though. Cures itself after a couple of engine restarts.

Dealer says XM Sat unit is on a fiber optic bus, but cannot diagnose it even with their computer. Could be a kinked fiber cable that also goes through the ignition switch.

In your case, could be just a bad copper wire connection. You could start by checking the power and ground to the Sat unit, especially if you are using switched power.
