    i have received the sfa12f cable. upon investigation it definitely will not fit in kick panel harness receptacle. I am now thinking it must plug onto cable that was plugging into back of entune.

    If you just need to go from the blue antenna plug in the factory harness to an aftermarket XM receiver, you might be able to take the adapter out of the factory headunit and use that. That's what I did, but I'm not sure if the new Entunes are the same.

    i could never find the right cable to use. My installer ended up cutting and soldering the sat antenna cable (behind radio) to the xm radio unit. Works perfect
