With the infotainment system turned on, press the Band button to turn on the radio. Pressing the Band button will cycle through AM, FM, and XM radios. Press the Band button until you are on the radio setting that you would like.

Tip

Not all vehicles come with XM radio. If your car does not have XM radio, then the Band button will only cycle through the AM and FM radios.
