If it is marked antenna, then it is most likely the remote part of a radar detector. Is there a guage or extra light installed in the dash anywhere?

It's possible that it is a signal amplifier for the radio antenna, that could be it as well, but it would have a large diameter wire (antenna wire) coming out of it.
If it has just a few regular wires, or a harness of wires, then it probably is for a radar.
Can you ask the previous owner?
