    Does anyone know how to get rid of the Sirius/XM advertisement that keeps appearing on my DIC? I don't have an OEM radio, I've completely disconnected the XM box behind the glove box, and I did a "restore to factory defaults" for the DIC. Nothing has worked so far. This message keeps appearing when I first start my truck and then about every 5 to 10 minutes as I'm driving.

    its a government controlled medium earth orbit satellite with the down-link maintained through on-star... which has the ability to shut off your truck at any moment... so no, there is no way to control that

    All of these audio experts we have on this site and no one knows how to get rid of Sirius/XM messaging?

    After disconnection my battery for a few minutes, I got the message down to only appearing once (the message has changed to "no signal reception" or something of that nature), and that is when I first start my truck. It's definitely better than appearing every few minutes as I'm driving but would like this message to completely go away from my DIC, as it forces me to acknowledge the message before normal information appears.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    You might want to try hooking the XM receiver back up. It looks to me like there's something in the vehicle that's calling on the radio to tune to the preview channel. Having the tuner there might at least give it enough sense to keep it from coming up again by replying that the tuner can't talk to the radio or such. If it doesn't work, it can be pretty easily pulled back out.

    Seriously? I pay for SiriusXM on my 2013, but you're telling me that if I cancel it, something in the DIC will prompt me to buy it?

    It has to be the trucks only, my girlfriend has a 2013 Malibu and let the free trial of Sirius cancel. She has no messages on the Malibu DIC trying to get her to buy.

    No that's not what we are saying we got aftermarket stereos and I never put in the xm antenna since it was an extra hundred and I don't use it. Now my xm code or what ever it is when u try to buy it shows up on my dlc
