    Welcome to TW!

    The antenna connection point is behind the driver kick panel below the dash. You will need an adapter to re-use the OEM shark fin with an aftermarket XM tuner. Like this one:

    Edit: I should add there are male and female versions of this adapter, from what I have read the male (linked above) is the more common one.

    Got it. I was reading your original post incorrectly. Yes, there is a connection box behind the kick panel on the driver side that the shark fin antenna terminates at. You will need to remove the kick panel to determine what is needed but you will likely need to run a new cable from that point to your OEM radio. Because it is OEM, I don't think the adapter I linked in the earlier post will work.
