I was wondering does anybody know if the factory head unit has a auxillary input for xm sattitlite radio. I was wondering because i want to get it but I want to keep the head unit stock? Does anybody have sattilite radio? If so how did you do it?
Thanks for the help

It wouldn't be xm ready but i believe you could hook it up as an auxillary item. Then you would have a seperate xm reciever.

I installed a XM Delphi SkiFi to my OEM Radio. Your options are a cassette adapter, an RF modulator, or a direct connection using a 3rd party AUX adapter (it convinces the head unit that your XM is actually your CD changer. You can then toggle back and forth from changer to XM). I had been using the RF modulator in another vehicle, but decided on the Blitzsafe adapter for this install. The sound quality if FAR superior than using the RF modulator. The only problem is that the Blitzsafe adapter will not work with the OEM CD changer. An aftermarket CD changer (or no changer at all) is needed. I luckily had an unused Alpine changer so I swapped them out.
The XM is mounted on a Pro-Fit bracket and Easy Swivel. I also installed a "micro" antenna, which is about 1.5" square by .5" high, and mounts magnetically just above the rear window. It sounds great!
correct me if i'm wrong...but in '94 i don't even think the stock h/u's had auxiliary...you could and probably will have to "modulate" it...as far as adapters go in my searches you can only get adapters for 96+ models
The factory deck will not support the XM radio unless you get delphi like shown in the picture. When I got my Denali with XM radio I fell in love and I wanted to get it im my ///M but I don't want any external systems (delphi) just isn't clean enough for me.
