converting from xm to sirius

I just bought a new gm car and it has xm, I don't like xm and want sirius back. Is there any way to convert without changing out the head unit?

You can try this, but it only works on some GM vehicles. It will not work on my 2007 HHR, but your vehicle may be listed:

from my understanding you can purchase and swap the "brain" that mounts behind your glove box (or at least thats where it is on the silverados)

god bless.

I have a 08 hhr. I already have sirius box and stuff with my alpine radio. I really want to put my alpine in it instead but can't find a adapter to put the radio in a double din opening.
