    2005 CR-V Problem with XM Radio

    I just purchased a certified-pre-owned 2005 CR-V. It has factory-installed XM radio. The radio works fine in all respects except for satellite mode. When I press the CD/XM button, which should toggle between the CD player and satellite mode, nothing happens. Even without an active subscription the radio should go into a satellite demo mode. This is also how you display the radios ID number for a satellite subscription.

    Haven't talked to the dealer yet. Anybody know if I am doing something wrong here or is it really a problem with the radio? Anyone else encountered anything similar to this? Thanks.

    The following is from the 2008 CR-V PDI procedures - it might give you some ideas (like the fuse that is just for the XM radio):

    Check/Refresh the XM Satellite Radio Dealer Demo Service (EX-L Only)

    The XM Satellite Radio comes from the factory activated with the dealer demo service. Once you install the No. 23 fuse, the XM radio will receive the full range of available XM channels. Make sure this service is activated by checking if the radio is getting channels 000, 001, 007, 009, 047, 122, 174, and 247. If it is not, do a rapid refresh on the iN (Interactive Network).
    Without the dealer demo service activated, the XM radio only displays channels 000, 001, 174, and 247.

    To check for the dealer demo service, do this:

    1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II). Turn on the radio, and enter the audio unit anti-theft code. Then press the CD/AUX XM button.

    2. Make sure the radio is in CHANNEL MODE, not CATEGORY MODE. Press and hold the DISPMODE button for 6 seconds (without navigation) or touch the MODE icon (with navigation) to switch between modes.

    3. Tune to channel 001 (the XM preview channel) to make sure you are receiving the XM signal. If you do not get a clear signal, park the vehicle outside where there is a clear view of the southern sky.

    4. Look at the audio unit display and turn the TUNE knob.
    If you can tune to channels 000, 001, 007, 009, 047, 122, 174, and 247, the dealer demo service is activated. Tune to channel 001, and leave the
    radio on for 7 minutes to refresh the dealer demo service. No further action is needed.
    If you can only tune to channels 000, 001, 174, and 247, the dealer demo service is not yet activated, and an activation refresh needs to be done. Go to step 5.

    5. Turn the TUNE knob to 000, then write down the 8-digit XM radio ID number you see in the audio unit display. You need this number, your dealer
    number, and the VIN to do an activation refresh of the dealer demo service. Then go to step 6.
    NOTE:
    If you cannot tune to channel 000, you are in CATEGORY MODE. See step 2 to switch from CATEGORY MODE to CHANNEL MODE.
    Check the ID code carefully. The letters F, I, O, and S are not used.

    6. Go to an iN workstation.
    NOTE: If you do not have access to iN, call XM Satellite Radio at (800) 852-9696, and follow the instructions of the automated menu. When the agent answers, ask for a rapid dealer activation refresh, then go to step 9.

    7. From the iN main menu, click on SERVICE, click on Service Bay, and then click on XM Radio. This brings up the DEALER ACTIVATION REFRESH
    screen.
    NOTE: If you cannot bring up this display, call the iN Support Center at (800) 245-4343.

    8. Enter the 8-digit XM Satellite Radio ID number you wrote down in step 5. Then click on Submit. You will see the ACTIVATION REFRESH screen once
    the ID number is recognized.

    NOTE: If you entered the ID number incorrectly, or it was not recognized, you will see an error display. If this happens, follow the instructions on the display.

    9. Turn the TUNE knob to 001 to make sure you are receiving the XM signal. If you do not get a clear signal, park the vehicle outside where there is a
    clear view of the southern sky, then go to step 10.

    10. Leave the radio on for at least 10 minutes, then go to step 11.

    11. Turn the TUNE knob.
    If you can tune to channels 000, 001, 007, 009, 047, 122, 174, and 247, the dealer demo service is activated. No further action is needed.
    If you can only tune to channels 000, 001, 174, and 247, the dealer demo service is not yet activated. Repeat steps 9 and 10 for up to 2 hours until the dealer demo service is activated.
    If, after 2 hours, you can only tune to channels 000, 001, 174, and 247, repeat steps 6 thru 10.

    NOTE:
    The dealer demo service lasts for 7 months or until the vehicles RDR (retail delivery registration) is submitted. It ends when the RDR is submitted.
    After the vehicle is registered, the dealer demo service converts to a customer account. The customer gets a 90-day trial service of all available
    XM channels. If the customer decides to end the service after that time, the XM radio reverts to a preview mode. The AM/FM radio is not affected.
    The XM radio receives digital broadcasts from two fixed-orbit satellites near the equator along with a network of ground antennas (repeaters). You will get the strongest signal if you operate the vehicle where there is a clear view of the southern sky.
    The XM radio may lose reception when you are driving through a tunnel, under an overpass, inside a parking garage, or near the northern face of a
    canyon or a mountain.
    To cut down on reception loss, the XM radio uses a buffer. If the reception loss lasts longer than the buffering period, the signal goes silent. Any reception loss makes the signal go silent; the signal does not fade like it does with an AM/FM radio.
    If you ever need to replace the XM radio receiver, call XM at (800) 852-9696. Be prepared to give them your dealer number, the VIN, and the XM radio ID numbers from the printed label on the side of the old and the new receiver units.

    I did the same thing 2 weeks ago. It turns out the 05 is only XM ready, not already equipped. XM told me this when I called to activate it.

    identical problem

    I have the identical problem as posted in this old post. The xm radio button does nothing. This is a new purchase that I believe had and aftermarker radio installed and the original 6-disc oem unit reinstalled before it was traded in.

    Dealer had to reset the radio as original code card was lost. It has the antenna for the xm. Fuse 23 was intact. Any suggestions?

    Oh, and greetings from the muggy south.

    Mine is a 2006 EX.

    The '05 - 06 were "XM READY" . They did NOT come from the factory with the antenna/decoder for satellite radio. This was a dealer-installed option.

    The "bump" on the roof is just a cover. If the XM kit is installed, this is replaced with a stubby antenna.
