Default 2002 radio in a 2001 PT update

Updating radio and I am missing a connection in the radio wire harness.
The 2002 radio harness does not have a 23 wire (radio on out - per diagram) ((listed as 13 on the 2002 radio sticker))
What am I to do with the blue antenna (listed as amp in diagram) wire on the 2001 PT?
Will it affect the radio signal? Is it a signal booster somewhere in this car?

And where or what does the PCI connection go and talk to?

I've done this. All you need is this inexpensive kit. It's $9.99 plus $3.99 shipping. And it includes both the harness adapter and the antenna adapter:

Old to New Style Factory Radio Stereo Install Wire Harness Adapter 82207541 | eBay




I have a 2005 Chrysler RB1 stereo head with satellite receiver in my 2001 PT. I've also added an iPod adapter and bluetooth.

My handy work can be seen in the photo. I've installed the radio and all works.
I do not connect the blue antenna car wire to anything because the factory radio harness had no connector, and I didn't connect the radio's pci bus wire to the car's pci bus wire (i still don't know what this does).

$4.45 harness adapter
$3.69 antenna adapter
$11.80 RAZ radio

TOTAL $19.94

I bought the same kit Handy bought on ebay. It works but the only thing was the connector that plugs into the 03 radio that was in the kit didn't fit nicely. I was using a lot of force trying to jiggle the connector and wires to plug it in. I decided against using this half of the kit and went to the junk yard and snipped a factory connector with lots of excess wires off a junked car. Then I used the ebay connector as a guide to know which wires to connect to which. It worked perfectly and the factory connector slid in easily with no force needed as one would expect.
