Hoes the hands free phone system work? when the xm quits does it no signal or does it show the channel? Has any body work been toon to the rear or roof of vehicle?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

We purchased the car used two year ago and the hands free has never worked.

Sometimes it works and goes out temporarily. Sometimes it goes out and says no signal.

No body work or any work on the roof

ok. we see the XM antenna on the roof fail on these . also the HFL Unit in the front map light base is bad . I would start by changing the roof antenna. If you give me the vin # ***** can give you the part number of the antenna and the HFL Unit . the XM antenna isn't hard to replace . just take out the rear map light and pull down the back of the head liner and you can unbolt it .

the antenna is 39150-SEP-A11ZB the HFL unit is 39770-SEP-A62ZA the book shows the body color to be black. Let me know if this isn't the color of your car.
