On my GM TNR unit it works just fine. Instructions are included with the Soundgate adapter, and are easy to understand.

Ive got the same setup...................works great. I did have one interface crap out on me but other than that no issues. Love the factory look with nothing hanging off the dash. Not sure on the door chime thing but mine still work as they did before.........

Also, I used Soundgate model# KNGM1. For the Sirius tuner I used model# SIR-KEN1. Both units are plug and play, you just need CONTINUOUS power to the Soundgate yellow wire and ground to the black. Pretty simple installation. So far I really like this setup. :ro)

Iwas told today that Soundgate is still working to improve it and now they are up to -7 on the part number of modifications to it.
