Great job!
Do you know if the SAT antenna connector is also in the trunk for the 09 Matrix? I saw the AM and FM antenna wires behind the glove box comming down from the roof through the A pillar, I was surprised that the SAT wire is not also there.

Also, about cutting the wire and slodering it: Is it not some kind of coax wire? Did you peel off the external ground shield to solder the core wire and then solder the shield over it?

Thanks in advance.

DHLSprinter, did you check to see if the TOY-SC1 harness would interface with the OEM tuner connector (AVC-LAN bus) which is located near the antenna connector? If it does, it would make your set-up as easy as the OEM install. The TOY-SC1 shows that the Y harness can be installed at the radio or at the OEM tuner location.
Well I had too check it out and YES the TOY-SC1 snaps right into the OEM tuner connector located in the trunk....sweet install, both antenna and tuner connectors are side by side in the trunk passenger side. Thanks for the suggestion.

A customer e-mailed in and provided info about this thread, so I've updated the TOY-SC1 compat list on tss-radio.com to reflect support for the Corolla.

Unfortunately sometimes people just have to try it and see if it works. VAIS pretty much knows what works and what doesn't and are quick about telling me when I e-mail.

I'm glad that this works though since there is a price difference and for the user the end result is pretty much going to be the same.

Default 2009 Corolla Prewired

I just bought a 2009 Corolla. Great gas mileage. I only got Sirius last month in my F- 150 and am am siriusly hooked.( Let my son drive the F 150, he's fine but the trucks a goner.) I'm not sure if I have this right. If I purchase the Sirius reciever PT545-00080from Toyota ($199), all I have to do is hook it up to the 2 wires in the trunk, and I'm good to go with Sirius? The service manager gave me a spiel about it taking three hours labor at $100 @ hour to hook up the reciever and run wires. Imagine that, I may have been lied to at an auto dealership.
If this will work, do I need anything else? Do I need to hook it up to a power source, or does the radio power it?
This site is fantastic. Being a newbie I'm sorry I'm just asking for help. Hopefully soon I'll be able to answer some questions.

Why would you uninstall the toySC1 from behind glove box and put in the trunk?

My wife just got corrolla sport, I've purchased the Toy SC1 and SC C1.

But does the scc1 go behind glove and the toysc1 in the trunk?
It seems that then I would have to run long harnes from the glove to the trunk?

For the 2009 Corolla, only radios with the XM logo on the head unit (lower left) have modules installed. These modules are in the head unit itself and are not removable. These are factory installed. For all other radios, they car is prewired for XM and Sirius as stated and is a dealer installed option only. All 2009 Corollas come prewired for the Satellite option.

I worked on the 150L (2009 Corolla) XM project. If anyone needs Toyota help with wiring etc. I can probably get it from our tech library.

I was really glad to find this forum, I haven't been able to find the answer anywhere as to if I can connect the same type modules "as seen in the corolla" in the trunk of my camry. I have the jbl 6 disc with bluetooth sat ready set up and have found the modules I need but I didn't really want to go under the dash with them, are there connectors in the trunk and if so which side. thanks for any help

I have an 09 Corolla with stock CD radio. I have the top of the line Kenwood head unit (single DIN) and the Metra install kit as well as the Kenwood Sirius tuner.

Goal --> utilize the stock antenna which I believe has the XM connection. The solution above is one way to go about it, I would rather not cut anything stock. Is there another option? I would like to put in place, a "converter" of sorts - converting the Sirius connection from the Sirius Tuner to the connection in the trunk going to the stock XM antenna.

Does this exist? if yes, where might I secure this?

I bought the modules from auto toys for $125 free shipping with pay pal and found a pdf for center console dissasembly and did the whole install in about 30 minutes. I found out there is no harness plug in trunk for the 07. I took out the part of the center console around the gear shifter then removed the storage box only 2 screws involved for both. then I bent the harness from the module like a cobra "tab side down" and reached up behind the radio found the plug in and put it in "took a few trys". I put the modules under storage area with double sided tape and that was it.I took my ant feed from my sportster I had in the storage area and called to activate.You have to turn ignition on and off before it is recognized. This was way easier than some other installs I've had. here is the pdf link for console removal. http://www.trdsparks.com/install/000...-04-11inst.pdf

So I know this discussion has gone back and forth. I just picked up the 09 Corolla, and contacted the dealer about get the Sirius installed, and the response was that the Sirius receiver and fit kit costs $254 plus $50 for the labor.

Out of curiosity what is the difference of the Toyota products VS the products available at TSS Radio.
