2008 Silverado 2500hd no sound from xm

Post by Toypulr » Sat Sep 08, 2018 10:43 pm

I've read several posts in this forum about this issue. I did have the 3.5mm plug in the wrong spot and fixed that issue. I then reset the maestro through my pioneer 2400nex head unit. Still no sound from xm. I disconnected my batteries for 20 minutes, still no sound from xm. I reset the maestro again. Still no sound. Is it possible the cable that plugs into the aux is bad? I do have an xm subscription and it worked before replacing the head unit. I still get channel information and can select any available channel. I just don't get any sound.

The only other thing to check is the black 10-pin connector on the maestro. Make sure it is plugged in well and seated correctly (this plug is where the XM audio comes in from the truck, so if it's not plugged in securely it could cause no sound).

Just checked the connection, pulled it out and reseated it along with all other connections to the maestro. Did a master reset through the pioneer and I still have no sound through xm.

Ok. So I rechecked everything again. Found the 10 pin connector not connected at all. Now I have sound, but I have to turn the deck up all the way and can barely hear anything.

Low volume was resolved by turning ignition off and back on. Thank you for all your help.
