I purchased my RAV4 used and the previous owners apparently had a subscription to XM Satellite. I can't receive over the air AM/FM signals. My CD player and the XM Preview come through, but no sound when I switch to FM radio. It is like the over air portion of the radio is muted. Anyone know the answer?

First thing I would check is if the antenna is unplugged from the back of the radio. I've had XM service in other cars (Chevy and Saturn) and the FM/AM tuning worked fine, even after the XM service expired. Maybe someone else here has an answer.

It probably had an add-on XM receiver connected to the radio by an FM modulator. It connects in series with the radio's AM/FM reducing or blocking the AM/FM signals. I found one on a Honda Odyssey I bought for my BIL. Disconnected it. Radio worked fine.
