Does anyone know what these 2 plugs are for. They are in the trunk in front of the battery. They appear to be for some antenna but I

don't know which one.

Stock command. Previous owner removed a bunch of modules in the trunk for some unknown reason. I got everything back together except these 2.

Is that under the foam on the shelf in front of the battery? Get a shot of the connection point also. Run the VIN through a decoder and see what the car came with stock. One looks to be antenna but can't tell without seeing the end. If it's antenna I'd guess NAV.....

it looks like it should be under the foam, but they were basically just laying under the side carpet panel. Car has every option stock. Nav, bluetooth, XM. Bluetooth and teleaid modules were missing as well as the nav DVD drive. I got replacements for those and everything is working as far as i can tell.

I can trace the ends to see where they go, they are both fakara type antenna wiring, i just figured someone may see the, and know exactly what they were for.

That is the factory installed pre-wiring for the dealer installed sat radio.
