My new 2007 Impala has a factory installed XM radio. While this is not a standard feature for the 2007 Impala LT, my understanding is that it only needed a software activation key to enable XM and allow me to register the radio. I have gone to 2 dealers to try to get this enabled. The first (who delivered this company car) told me all I had to do was tune to channel 1 to get the radio ID. I explained that the XM feature was no enabled. After going to each department by phone, they said they would get back to me. Nothing yet. I stopped at a local Chevy dealer and made the same inquiry. They sent me to the accessories guy who told me I needed a module. I bought the module, took it home and discovered it was an Ipod control dock. Nice but not what I wanted. The instructions state the dealer must use the Tech 2 program tool to enable the "digital radio reciever". I called the dealer and no one seems to have done this before. Does anyone know how this should work?

Does your car have an XM antenna? Have you seen the back of the radio to see if it has a connection for XM? It will if the XM is built in to the unit. It's a little square connector with a round pin.

By the way, I installed the first XM car system in Los Angeles, so possibly, the United States.

I stumbled on while looking for a solution to a similar problem that I have. I own a Canadian impala 2002 car that I moved to the US and I want to enable the XM digital recover on the factory radio. Manual read its enabled from the Band button but in the US only.

Yeah i went to a dealership where i bought my 2013 LT. Apparently it came with everything (onstar, hands free calling) but no XM but yet i go to the right side of my trunk to find what i believe is the XM Radio reciever plug/box. Im sure i have it, the damn dealer kept talking to me like i was stupid...
