    2006 VW Passat XM Radio Module

    I activated my XM radio and only Channel was working. When I called to activate my satellite option it grayed out the option for my XM selection. It now says that I need to replace my satellite module??? Sirius XM folks are saying this.... This is $600.... Can I transfer the module from a GMC Acadia (05 or 06) into my Passat?? I want a fix with a reasonable cost, does anyone know if this possible? Or know of a vehicle that is compatible?

    Thanks for the assist!!

    No but Audi modules were compatible with VWs. Cheapest way would be XM's car kits though. Pull your module out and you'll have a part number to use to search for a used or new one.
