radio antenna splitter?

Is there a Y splitter cable out there so I can plug the am/fm antenna into my pioneer radio and have the other plug plug into a xm tuner from the factory antenna. I want to be able to split the factory antenna to my radio and xm tuner box. My tuner box plugs into my radio for sat so I need a splitter cable. The radio receives the normal am/fm plug and the xm tuner box takes the xm antenna connector plug, It should work right. Anyone know where I can get one?

but it has xm in the car already. I get im taking the radio out and losing the xm tuner, but im putting in an xm tuner that fits my pioneer radio, so the factory antenna in theory should be able to plug into both the radio and the xm tuner if its split? right? I was think putting these three cables together

Let's try this again. Your fm/am antenna is at the bottom part of your rear glass. That wire for goes to the connector that is marked fm/am antenna. The XM antenna in the part the is mounted on your roof. That wire goes to the connector that is marked XM antenna.

You get this part from Amazon

Plug your fm/am into that adapter then to the pioneer radio. Next you plug the xm in your fm tuner. The data wire takes the xm singnal to the pioneer radio.
I know this because i installed a pioneer AVIC-Z130 BT in my Camaro

Correct. You probably going to need a extension cable you don't have much cable to work with. I had to get the 5 ft xm to Sirius adapter cable because I use Sirius radio
