2001 996 Satellite Radio installation [REVISED]

Electrical and Electronic

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 2001; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 25,000;

My Cabriolet has a factory installed radio/CD player. I have recently purchased a Sirius Satellite radio for it. I made a custom bracket to mount the radio on the dash. Using the built-in modulator, I tuned the car radio to the correct frequency and turned on the satellite radio. To my dismay, nothing happened. The satellite radio is activated but nothing came out of the car system. Moving the satellite radio off the bracket, I can hear the satellite stations thru the car system, barely. I have checked all my wiring and it all seems to work. Is the factory system so shielded that this won't work or is the radio, in fact, bad with a poor modulator?Thanks
