Does anyone know where the antenna lead is under the dash, and is it relatively easy to get to. I want to direct connect my XM radio.

Thanks

Hey, how do you direct connect an xm radio to the antana under the dash anyway? Are you talking about connecting it to your radio antana? IF so tell me how, right now I have my wiring in between the rubber where the doors are going all the way into the back through my trunk up to the top of the car. It looks really good, can't tell where the wiring is or anything, but just wondering how you were doing it and if its easier?

he is directly connecting his xm to his sterio, i believe, im not sure ive heard of anyone connecting the xm feed to the atenna, that sound all wrong. ive only installed one satilite radio kit, it was a serius kit, it came with a wire like the one on this post. your regular atenna feed plugged into the back, the front plugged into your stereo, and the blue wire was connected to the satelite reciever. it wasnt all that hard, the hardest part actually, was getting the satelite atenna for the door pillar up through the headliner, and out to the roof of the car.

Well considering he was talking about the Antana lead, I figured that was what he was doing. Anyway, i got ya on that, I don't want my xm to sound bad, it sounds good the way it is. I am thinking about getting a bigger satelite antana instead of that little one that is about the size of your big toe. I wanted a bigger one because my signal goes out alot under overpases and in cities with tall buildings, I hate it, I am listing to a good song and then all of a sudden it goes out.

thats weird since satelite radio is supposed to always have signal.

I have sirius.. it's strange what interupts the singnal. Going under bridges and things like that, or even staying under bridges at a redlight rarley cuts it out. Yet, there are these trees near my house that dont even overhang the road that always makes it go out, even long after I've passed them

Yep, I get that a lot too, like going back on to a highway, there are a bunch of trees out there that just block the signal.
