I do believe it'* the XM receiver antenna as well for the ones equipped.

What is the little antenna used for that is located on the outside rear window, passenger side? It is related to the small black plastic container (size of pack of chewing gum) that is glued to the inside front windshield, above the driver.

Yes, that antenna is for Onstar, and the little black box I think you are referring to is your sensor for the Rainsence system...

By the way, there was a recall for those antennas...
