'17 QX30 Premium with Bose - 39K miles.
Washed and waxed the car Sunday. Now SXM barely gets a signal.
FM stations cut in and out of HD and in places have lots of static.
It's like I unplugged the antenna.

Looks ike the fin antenna is ~$150. What are the chances it is the antenna? Honestly, can't think of anything else that could have caused this. Of course, was working excellent before.

Thanks for any help.

You could try unplugging the antenna and see if reception gets worse, then plug in and see if it improves?

Certainly a good thought. Just need to figure out how to get to it.

The AM/FM antenna is separate from the XM antenna.

The AM/FM antenna is in the rear spoiler.

The XM antenna is in the "shark fin" on the roof. Access requires removal of the headliner.

I can get you some pictures later.

Then it does not make sense that the antenna went bad because both of them would have had to.
I checked HD Radio when we first got it and it worked great. So if both went bad, it has to be something other than antenna, I would think.

Yeah, I definitely would appreciate pictures! Would help to get to it and see what is up.
