    All the shark fin antennas have three wires coming out of them. There is a plug right over your head, with less than one foot of lead from the antenna. This is the way it's assembled, and nessesary to un-plug for paint or antenna replacement. I assume that one wire is Onstar, one XM, and the third is possibly Nav. If you find an adaptor plug, please post. I want to use that antenna for my portable/MP3 XM unit.

    I think this is it, or close to it, there are a few options:
