E65 audio system wiring

I need help figuring out where a wire goes. I bought the car used and the FM, AM, and WB are not working, just static. I replaced the antenna tuner and it did not correct the problem. I disassembled the driver side trunk panels and located the antenna wire from the tuner and it is unplugged. The wire is tied together with a second wire going into the Bluetooth module. The Bluetooth may have been added later, i'm not sure. I have attached photos of my findings. If someone can send me a photo of theirs or tell me here the wire goes. It will not properly fit in the Bluetooth module I have already tried.

The white connector with the purple color is the same color as the one coming off my antenna tuner. I have not run an ohms test to see if it actually the wire. The other antenna has a right angle connector on it and is colored pink. when it is plugged in, the wire actually crosses over the second connector on the unit.

The one will not plug into the unit correctly. If you would check yours tomorrow, it would be a great help.
