How do you scroll through the RDS messages on my '04 Maxx LS 6 disc changer XM radio? It will read a phone number and cut off the last few digits. Thanks.

For RDS and XM information I don't believe it is possible to scroll - you can only cycle between display modes. This is one area I always wanted to understand a little better.
For OnStar phone number display I think it displays 10 digits which only covers a basic U.S. number with area code
#6 of 53 Radio knob and mirror?

Does anybody know a part number for the power button on the 6 disc XM receiver? Mine's peeling and the dealer can't help.
Also, I have a noise that sounds like a rattle in the passenger mirror, the dealer was also unable to fix this under warranty so I'm on my own. Any ideas to what the problem is?
Thanks for the help.

Knob kit for 2004 Malibu radio is 22690637. Should be a cost of $5-$6 from dealer. Likely hard to get cheaper anywhere else due to shipping charges. Might just be one knob in kit because it is actually a couple pieces (inner pushbutton and outer knob). Don't know if both knobs on radio are the same - this one mentioned Power specifically.
I was unsure about your comment on the mirror. I don't really have a suggestion anyways but was it something dealer thought they could fix - just not under warranty?
FYI - the fact that your vehicle has XM option doesn't have much directly to do with the radio head itself. The XM receiver function is done by a separate electronic module in trunk. All but the base level radio in Malibu is compatible with this XM receiver.

I'm out of basic warranty now. The dealer replaced the glass gasket, but it didn't fix the problem. A bunch of empty promises later and the service department being fired, I'm on my own now out of warranty. The rattle sounds as if it's coming from the passenger outer mirror. It has become worse and can now be heard with the window down. It sounds as if something is loose and will come and go depending on the wind strength. Thanks in advance for any help or ideas.
I've had really good and really bad service out of the dealer. I still have an oil leak, probably from the rear main seal as the pan has been done. I do have GMPP, but was told I may be responsible for the repair costs if they determine the oil brand is the culprit. I think that's nonsense but will think about that next time I purchase a vehicle.

Ive had my '05 MAXX for a little over a month and love it. The only gripe I can come up with is the radio. It seems the radio reception wants to cut out regularly, and when this happens it sounds almost like a cd skipping. I havent checked with the service department at the stealership yet but will be going in for service soon. Anyone experience this as well? Any input appreciated. Thanks

sounds like the radio needs to be reprogrammed...it can be done at the dealership..its a software upload they can do......it done by simply loading a CD they have into the player......do you have in popping sounds as well???
#11 of 53 AM Reception on M06 MAxx with 6CD and XM

I am getting terrible AM reception on my Maxx. FM is fine, XM comes in clear, but the AM has a lot of interference, sounds like a radio I had with a bad ground.
Has anybody experienced poor AM reception on their Maxx. The Dealership said the problem seemed to be intermittent and they couldn't find any problem. They reprogrammed the XM, but that has nothing to do with the AM.

Hi I own a 2004 Malibu Maxx and for some strange reason the CD's keep getting stuck in the CD player. I have gotten them out before and cleaned the cd player but now I have a CD in there and when I press the eject button it just makes a clicking noise and says either "No disc" or "Check Disc". Any ideas on whats going on and/or how to fix it?

We're getting a bit afoul of sound systems here, but...
Oil brand and warranty coverage?
They have no business under Magnusson-Moss specifying any brand as long as the oil is SM and 5w30. The GM oil life monitor is calibrated for dino not synthetic oil. If you were running 20w50 racing oil or 10w40 in there and blew something out you've got another problem, but brands is brands: whether Pennzoil or SuperTech. Goodwrench oil is the same as Mobil 5000-- I think, although the formula may be slightly changed.
There was an underlying GM spec for pumpability that still occasionally shows up on SM bottles but the SM spec. itself includes this performance. There were SL oils that could fail to meet this spec.
