We had an xm radio installed in our 2010 prius after we bought it. It was ''satellite ready'' but needed the radio. We signed up for xm radio and tried to get the signal. The radio was tuned to channel 001. We could hear the ''previews'' station. However, they sent us the signal twice and we never connected. The screen of the radio keeps flashing ''SAT 1 Tr 1'' or SAT 1 No iPod attached''. What are we doing wrong?


Go to who installed you sat radio have them pull the antenna and receck the the receiver number it sounds like you have the wrong reciever number even one digit off and it will never conect even tho you have preview and sat radio paired with an anten ... 2009 Toyota Prius

My 2003 Toyota highlander blower turns on normally but after driving for more than 20 minutes, the blower seems to get weak. I have no freon issues, the blower just shuts down.

For a few months now, the dash lights on my husband's Chevy Prizm 2001 fliker on and off or stay off unless you bang on the dash. In addition the radio signal has deminished greatly. I would assume both issues are due to some loose wireing. How would I go about finding and fixing this problem. Or, about how much could I expect to pay a repair shop if it is just a loose wiring issue?


The banging on the dash prabably caused the radio issue. Its hard to say what exactly is the issue because one would need to see which lights are the issue and from there the wiring diagrams would need to be accessed. \015\012\015\012If ... Chevrolet Prizm
