Default 2006 ION XM Radio stuck on one station

Greetings!

As the title states, my Wife's 06 ION has XM Radio and it seems to be stuck on one station. Is there a way to cold boot the radio or something? All other bands, cd and radio stations work fine, but on XM it will not change. Any help?

Thanks!

you need a new radio, I had the same problem, the trick is getting to a dealership while it's doing it.

Yikes! Sounds like it would come and go. How long did you deal with this situation? Did it always get stuck on the same station? BTW nice photos, ours is Silver too, looks just like our 3 with the wheels and fogs.

thanks, I dealt with this for months, with many many trips a half an hour away to my nearest saturn dealership and one radio, then it recurred and I had to drive to a dealership 2 hours away to get a second radio (they fixed it the first time) then many more trips to the previous dealership for a third radio (I was on vacation for the one). It could be your XM module, so also have them look at that. and no, it wasn't always the same station

Sounds like a nightmare. It seems to work again after I washed the car. Probably unrelated. I have it going in the shop this week, I'll see if they can check it out. We will be driving NY to Disney World this month, I'd really like to be able to use XM the whole way.

Thanks again!
