#63 of 69 XM Radio on 2008 Touring

Does anyone know if the 2008 Avalon (without JBL) is prewired for XM? Is there a wire harness already routed through the car or does the dealer have to wire the car? Also does the dash board radio cover have to be removed to connect the XM unit into it?
#64 of 69 XM nightmare

I bought a 2008 Avalon with an XM ready JBL radio. I had the local stereo store install the hardware necessary to receive XM radio. Everything worked great until I upgraded to Best of Sirius. Now I get some but not all of the XM channels and some but not all of the Best of Sirius channels. Neither XM nor the stereo store can figure out why. XM has resent the signal at least 8 times. They have performed at least 4 deact/reacts. I noticed that some of the missing channels show up when I push the TYPE/FOLDER button? Can anyone help me please.
#65 of 69 2008 Avalon XM tuner volume/input control
May 20, 2009 (5:12 am)
I have a dealer installed XM receiver/tuner in my 2008 Avavlon. The problem is, the volume on the XM radio is considerably lower than all the other sound applications. That is, when I switch from the regular AM or FM radio, CD player to XM I have to turn up the volume on the unit.
Is there a "volume" or "Input level" adjustment on the XM radio unit itself? (I think the tuner/receiver is mounted under the passenger's seat).
I couldn't find a volume, input or level adjustment using the dashboard controls.

I also have an '08 Avalon with XM. The volume of the XM is higher than the FM, but not a lot so it isn't a problem. I can use the XM volume at a 5, but my normal volume is between a 10 and 15. The FM has to be from 15 to 20. I looked under the seat to see if there was a volume control but couldn't find one. It's hard to see under there.

My XM radio unit is in the right rear quarter panel behind a carpeted panel in the trunk. I too have the same volume issue but not as significant as on my last Avalon.

Hey, We bought a used Toyota Avalon (limited). How can we find the ESN number to enable our Satelite Subscription? Or where might the Satelite receiver be located to see if it's on it? RP

I think its channel 0 or 00..check that out first, with the Sat on. It will show the ESN number. On some units, if the Sat is available but not activated, it will play a loop telling you what to do and how to activate. You could also call the CS line for XM (at least that's what I have) and they will walk you through it, too.
