Everything on the infotainment system works except for the "No XM Signal" message.

Check the antenna on the roof. It unscrews and may have come loose, reducing reception.
You can try that, but I think that's for AM/FM. XM and GPS would be part of the base. It could be the antenna module or the radio module. The dealer should have a troubleshooting tree that would guide them though that.
Curious to what frequency XM uses and found this: "The XM signal used 12.5 MHz of the S band: 2332.5 to 2345.0 MHz. XM provided 128 kilobits per second of its bandwidth to OnStar Corporation for use with XM-enabled GM vehicles, regardless of whether their owners are XM subscribers." Learn something new every day.

(And in answer to my original question, XM uses a frequency a bit below 2.4GHz WiFi.)
