ok so lets start with the gauges winter time they are prob going to read bad summertime they read good.
now theres a strange wire burning smell you can smell every once in a while.

radio will turn on and act normal but theres no sound this is a stock radio and xm/fm/am and cd all have the same issues

fog light will light up the button but neither light will work.

been busy and need the car so i cant just be pulling things apart just "looking" for a problem. anyone have an ideal on anything?

also if the radio is bad if memory serves me right you cant just swap stock radios. i would like to keep xm

Servo motors are probably wearing out in the cluster. You can buy them on eBay and desolder and resolder if you are experienced or just replace the entire cluster. Bad news is you will have to get the mileage programmed in which costs time, $$, and shipping both ways to a place that will do it.

As far as radio goes, you should be able to keep your XM. The satellite receiver is separate in the trunk. Some minor radio tests can be done with a Tech 2 to try to diagnose issues, but if it has to be replaced the new radio can be set up for the car with a Tech 2 as well. Radios 2003 and higher have a BAND (instead of AM/FM button) so the satellite radio will seamlessly integrate as your current radio does.

Have you checked bulbs, fuses, and relays for the fog lights?

about the radio. i was just looking on ebay and thought it would be a nice time to upgrade and get the cd/tape player instead of just the cd player but this one seller said you cant upgrade just replace what you had. is there any truth to this?

No, you can upgrade. Just make sure the new radio has the button marked Band (03+) rather than AM/FM.

My 05 came from the factory with AM/FM, cassette. I installed an older AM/FM CD radio that says AM/FM. [ Not band] No problem at all, & it was a "plug, & play". GARY

He said he wants to keep his XM. If he's using the factory satellite radio receiver or an aftermarket receiver that integrates into the factory radio without rebroadcasting the audio on a FM frequency then he needs the band button on the replacement radio.

It really doesnt, but it was easier than fitting "AM / FM / XM" on the button. So they just made it say BAND

So then is the older AM/FM radio electrically the same as the BAND radio except for the button? GARY

One last question. Is the GM factory XM receiver built into the band radio, or a separate receiver mounted somewhere else? GARY

It's a separate receiver. It came mounted in the trunk as a factory equipped option. Terk made a XM Direct kit (XMDGMK) that interfaced in the same way that you could mount wherever. I have mine up above the passenger side footwell.

Factory satellite receivers are linked to the VIN number on initialization. I read years ago about someone picking one up from a junkyard and having the EEPROM reprogrammed to erase the VIN but I don't remember if it was on here or another board.
