Default Do I have XM Radio?

I am the new owner of a 2006 Corvette. In fact, this is the first Corvette I have ever owned.

Anyway, the options placard in the glove box shows that I have U2K, which I believe is XM radio.

However, the XM1 and XM2 bands do not appear when I cycle the band button.

I have attached a photo of the options placard inside the glove box.

Can someone tell me whether I have XM radio or not?

Thanks, Russ

Yes, you do.

It used to be a common problem, losing the XM bands. I think there were basically 2 issues, a timing issue within the HU or a connection fault. Easiest thing to try first is disconnect and reconnect the cable at the XM box over the left rear wheelwell.

Read through here for ideas but look at post 9 for sure:

Thanks for your comment.

I looked for the box, but I didn't see it. Is it under the carpet?

Yes, pull the carpet back from the top, and if the box is still installed, will be staring at you on top of the drivers rear wheel well in a coupe, or in a convert, its under the waterfall cover between the seats.
