While you have it all opened up, pull the other coax out and zip tie both of them back.

Again, its all in the thread I linked you to.

No, it is one of your cellular data antennas. Do you have a shark fin roof antenna or a low profile antenna?

Searching within the thread is an option. Really narrows it down.

Edit: Ugg, with the new style forum, I don’t have the experience to further advise. Good Luck!

One lead goes to the planar F cellular antenna in your shark fin and the other goes to another planar F celljlar antenna on your parcel shelf.

Good luck to you whatever you decide.
