    2005 Jeep Wrangler Bought Used - Found Sirius wiring - need help

    I've found a Sirius Sir3 antenna wired from the top of the console through the engine compartment cable run and attached to the underside of the hood? I've also located a AC adapter run from the console (both satellite signal and unit power cables are located at top of console where tray is located).

    Question: Are all Sirius/XM equipment compatible with the Sir3 antenna? Also, the two connectors found: 1 is a gold threaded connector (satellite) and the other a mini-din power connector. Based on this, should I be able to reuse or do i need to buy new? I also have strong reservations on if the found placement of the antenna would work (it was extremely dusty whcih makes me think it was there for a long time.

    Also, with the found configuration, how did the previous owner connect to factory head unit? I've been researching and would suspect FM mod using the XM/Sirius unit itself. I'm going to use FM Direct. Any suggestions here?

    Thanks for responding!

    You sure that is an antenna under the hood? How could it possibly get reception through the hood?

    Here is my jeep ... this is how I recommend running your wires and placing your unit (unless you are going to use a sirius ready head unit).
