Satellite Radio

    I have a 2007 Pt Cruiser with satellite radio. Rest of the radio works fine. The satellite part will work for a while then cut in and out. I get the channel information but no sound. I replaced the antenna with no luck in solving the problem. Is there a replacement for the satellite reciver or do I replace the radio with an aftermarket radio?
    Also does anyone have a good source for aftermarket headlights and tailights?

    Welcome to Allpar. You probably want the service manual to diagnose the Satellite radio system. There is a satellite module behind the LR 1/4 trim panel. It must have both battery and ignition power to it. Test the coax cable between the module and antenna for an intermittent connection/internal break. This module also needs CAN bus C communication.
    You want it to act up while testing in order to find the problem.
    It may not be a problem in the radio itself. You might need an advanced scan tool to read radio-based fault codes and run tests.
    I went through for Sebring headlamps for my best deal. Make sure that the parts are described as 'OEM' and 'Direct Fit'.
