Just did some heavy reading.

The white fakra connector is indeed for a diversity (second antenna adjoined to the primary). This is like why some say the older larger antenna is better. The diversity antenna is supposed to improve signal. It looks like the blue fakra connector is the primary antenna. I'm sure that's the one I have hooked up in my truck. And it works okay for me.

If you want the one with two wires, you will need to get one for a 2001 thru 2005 PT Cruiser. I believe it's the same on many 2005 and earlier Mopars as well. I added one of these to my 2001 PT Limited. Mopar part number is likely 05066205AC.

Here's a link to some. But be sure to verify the part numbers yourself.
