Add SiriusXM satellite radio to your Lexus

This clever adapter lets you enjoy SiriusXM satellite radio directly through your vehicle's factory receiver. All you need is a subscription, a SiriusXM SXV300 tuner (not included), and a few minutes of installation time — you'll be ready to hit the road with all your favorite music, sports, news, and entertainment programming at your fingertips.

Installation is surprisingly simple. All you need to do is remove the factory radio, connect the adapter to your vehicle's USB port and a constant power source, then connect to your SiriusXM tuner.

More functionality, same factory features

You won't lose any of your vehicle's factory functionality, either. You'll be able to control your satellite radio tuner through the factory receiver and steering wheel audio controls, plus retain use of any iPod/iPhone add-ons, the CD/DVD changer, the rear seat entertainment system, or most anything else that's part of your system.

You'll also be able to see channel and song information on your receiver, whether it's a single-DIN receiver with a multi-line LCD display or a double-DIN receiver with a big, touchscreen display. Use your touchscreen, radio controls, steering wheel controls, or tuning knob to browse through channels and search by category. To make things even easier, you can preset up to 36 of your favorite channels.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very easy to install and configure. My only wish was that it supported changing channels using steering wheel controls. Also, it would have been nice if the metal enclosure had drilled tabs or some means to mount it. Minor complaints, overall pleased with how well it integrated with the factory head unit, steering wheel controls and preserved all preexisting functionality.

Pros: Works as advertised Easy to install

Cons: Can't change channel with steering wheel controls No mounting holes/tabs

This is a good news; bad news story with a happy ending. Apparently, I was the first person to try connecting this in to a 2002 Lexus GS430 Levinson system. All indications were it would work when I placed the order, but after a day of installation and a consult with the factory we determined it was not going to happen. While it would have been good to have it right the first time, the situation did get resolved with a new Sony head unit and all is well with the world. The patience and persistence of the Crutchfield team is much appreciated.

Basic controls

Chris from Florida on 12/27/2015

2008 Lexus SC430

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Only gives you basic control up and down tuning. No way to preset stations. Manufacture shows control through Navi screen but does not work only works through disc player display. Really expected more than I got. I will be removing this and installing control unit from xm/sirius. On a high it was easy to install so it will be easy to remove.

Pros: You can listen to xm

Cons: Operates like an early 90's Disc charger controller.

Retains Factory Features: The Vais Technology SL3sat-L allows you to keep all factory installed components (such as 6-disc CD changer, CD/DVD changer, Rear Seat Entertainment System, etc).

SAT & CD-Changer Modes: When you connect the SL3sat-L to the audio system, your Lexus factory radio recognizes it as an additional CD/MD changer or as a SAT radio receiver. Control & Text features depend on how your Lexus model vehicle and how the factory recognizes this interface.

  • Controls: The Vais Technology SL3sat-L allows you to search & select SiriusXM Satellite Radio stations for playback through your vehicle's factory radio. 
    • Tuning: You can use the tuning knob of your factory radio for quick browsing through SiriusXM's wide channel selection, or browse by category if you prefer (SAT-mode only).
    • Presets: You are able to preset 18 of your favorite SiriusXM Satellite Radio stations for easy and quick selection (SAT-mode only).
    • Steering Wheel Control: You can also control basic SiriusXM Satellite Radio functions through your vehicle's steering wheel controls.
  • Text Information: Channel and Song information will be displayed on your factory radio's LCD or Navigation screen (SAT-mode or CD/MD Changer mode).
Note: The SL3sat-L interface requires programming to set the proper emulation mode for your model vehicle and type of factory radio.

Level Adjustment: You can adjust the input sound level of the SL3sat-L and the SXV300 satellite receiver (sold separately). The sound level adjustment allows you to balance the volume control with other sources of your factory radio (such as CD player, FM radio, etc), and eliminates possible distortions caused by high-input levels.

Electronic Ground Noise Isolator: A built-in electronic ground noise isolator to eliminates unwanted car engine noise.

Y-Harness: The included 12-pin audio Y-harness plugs in between your vehicle's factory radio and the Vais Technology SL3sat-L interface.
