Antenna under passenger feet?

Hey! i just added dynomat on mu floor and i took the carpets out. By mistake i think i broke an antenna or something that looks like an antenna on the area that i circled.
Unfortunately i didn't take a picture with it while the carpets were out. I couldn't find any info on the internet about it.
So, does anybody by any chance know what might be there?
Thank you very much!

So, you say it might be something not from the stock vehicle?
It is a bad place for an antenna too, but after it's broken, everything seems to work fine...

Your antenna goes from your head unit, past the glove box and to the physical antenna. No where near the floor. If you were to cut or disconnect the antenna wire, you just wouldn't get any radio signals.

yup but i was thinking it might be for something else, like the stock alarm, some perimeter sensor or... an alien tracking device or something) but i guess it is from something aftermarket i might have added even though i don't know what or who would be stupid enough to put something fragile under people's feet

exactly! i have an aftermarket alarm too but it's antenna is on the windshield. also some parking sensors but they are working fine now too, so it wasn't from them. the rest are bolt-ons for hp and handling. it's too bad i didn't see where the wire goes. it was hard to track because of the tight carpets and i was in a hurry. also, i have the shaker 500 so it doesn't have anything to do with satellite radio or gps
