The problem is that the anti-theft system for the stereo system has has gone into the lock mode to let would-be-theifs know that if they have slolen it to re-install in another vehicle it will not work. You need to call or go to your local G.M. dealer and give them your V.I.N. # located on the front driver side of your dash board, and they can tell you the code or reset the code for you, and hen it should work. This problem usually happens when the battery is disconnected for what ever reason , when re-connecting the battery cable, the stereo goes into this lock out mode. I have a friend who had the same problem with a 97' Cavalier, the dealership fixed it for him at no charge. Good luck with it.

The Dome light fuse controls Time/Clock, and sometimes stuff like Door Lock controls, Keyless Entry Systems, Dash Cluster Lights, and maybe even headlight controls.For the Radio there will be Radio No.1 and No.2 fuses check both of these.

Does a Xm radio have a fuse?

All devices in an automobile have fuses if attached to the electrical system. If the XM Radio was factory then it should be controlled by the radio fuse in the fuse lock. If it was added to the vehicle at some later date, it could be connected just about anywhere there is a switched battery connection. If you are not sure how to check anything like this, your best bet would be to take it too someone that installs them.
