2017 XM Antenna connection


Recommended Posts

I am looking for where I can plug in an external magnetic XM antenna.  I have a 2017 GMC Denali HD with the 8 inch Intellilink system.  I have a truck camper and it's cabover overhang blocks the Shark Fin antenna preventing me from receiving XM.

 

I had a 2003 Sierra 3500 and the XM antenna was behind the glove box, is it the same with my 2017?

It's right behind the factory screen.  Remove center trim bezel, then remove the 7mm bolts holding radio and A/C controls in.  Once removed the XM connection is straight in front of you.

      Hello!
       
      I have a Sierra Denali 2019 6.2L - I apologize for not knowing much as I got the truck from my brother and never owned a truck before in my life!
       
      I would like to install two antennas on the rear stake pockets and bring the coaxial cables into the cabin. cables are 1/4 inch each. There is a also a small control cable for the tarheel antenna. I don't plan to connect the radios to the Car Batteries as I have separate batteries for radio use.
       
      I would like to know if there are some sort of documentation or drawings that shows where I can check for the cable entry points to the cabin from the rear to bring these cables into the cabin and the precautions I need to do and best practices to seal the entry points to prevent dust and stuff.
       
      any help would be appreciated. 
       
      Thanks...

      I have a 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 with 3.0 diesel, Sometimes when I shut the truck off and then get back and start it up,, the radio says the satellite is lost, trying to reconnect, but it won't until I shut the motor off and get out of the truck or at least wait at least 2 minutes or more with the motor and radio off,, then restart and the radio works fine,, this only happens with xm,, fm and am work fine,, I have contacted my dealer and they say it must be xm,,, contacted xm,, they say it must them the radio, It doesn't do this all the time,, just once in a while,,, no matter how long I drive with it saying it is trying to reconnect, it never does,, wondering, Am I the only one having this problem? Not sure who to talk to next,,, any ideas? Thanks

      The dealer is now installing the 3rd infotainment center XM radio since the truck was purchased new on January 26,2020. Has anyone else had this problem or similar? Thanks in advance.?
