Is GM US8 stereo XM capable?

Asked by Mar 26, 2009 at 04:54 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt LS Coupe

Question type: Car Customization

I recently purchased a used 2005 Cobalt LS coupe, with the Pioneer 7 speaker system, and the GM OEM stereo is the US8 option, with MP3 and CD. Everywhere I read, I see that XM is an option on these radios, but the dealer and GM support have no idea how I can get XM in the care... Someone told me that the dealer would have to "program" the radio to accept XM...

Does anyone know how I can get/program a US8 GM OEM stereo for my car, that supports XM?

the 2009 usb radio is "preloaded" with xm but yes the radio has to be programed with tech2 in order to work with you car becuase door chimes and warnings are audible through the radio. if you are looking for a usb, xm capable radio i would suggest looking into after market radios. The price of the radio, programming etc might get up there being that most dealships charge at least 80/hr round here. that's if the wiring is even the same i know in 06 they did some changes to the wiring on the radios (i believe)
