Receiving XM® Radio

Switch to the XM® mode by pressing the SOURCE button repeatedly or operating the On Demand Multi-Use Display , and stay in this mode for about 30 minutes until the service is activated. Make sure your vehicle is in an open TM area with good reception.

The XM® satellites are in orbit over the equator; therefore, objects south of the vehicle may cause satellite reception interruptions. Satellite signals are more likely to be blocked by tall buildings and mountains the farther north you travel from the equator.

You may experience reception problems under the following circumstances: • In a location with an obstruction to the south of your vehicle.
• In tunnels
• On the lower level of a multi-tiered road
• Large items carried on the roof rack
