XM radio stopped working

Got my Sky back from the dealer after getting the faulty connector replaced and now the XM feature on the radio does not work. Even pushing the BAND button will not select XM. During troubleshooting the Tech must have spiked the electronics and caused the radio to fail. I could tell something was wrong when the time on the radio showed about 1 hour off. The gremlins are having fun sneaking around on my car. Now I get to go back to the Dealer, they now know me on a first name basis.

Don't you love it when they fix one thing you took it in for and in the process they break something else more expensive to fix that wasn't broken to begin with?...

At least it will be easy to fix. Bad radio out good radio in. I'm guessing the radio failed

Here's how you know if the XM is broke.
  1. look up
  2. do you see a satellite?
  3. YES! problem with the car. Return to dealer. See above post.
  4. NO!!! Satellite has fallen from sky or destroyed by alien invasion fleet. Drive faster!!

Even if your XM subscription runs out, you still get the XM signal, to include the XM "advertisement" band. You just don't have full access to the channels.

The radio doesn't even give me the option to select XM. Something got hosed up when t/sing the engine glitch. I'll take it in next week. The tech was stumped why the radio will not select XM.

Saturn fixed the XM part of the radio

I thought the radio was bad. Per the service invoice the lead tech "called TAC case 10165584 instructed to remove 10AMP UHJB fuse #56 for 5 mins and reinstall". My XM now works This fuse also has something to do with ON-STAR. I would like to see a schematic of all of this.
