begin with the easy one. code is for battery disconnect.(if you had the battery disconnected while installing that will explain it) if you ground the antenna wire to the chassis does it still spark? Is it a power antenna? I'd make sure that somehow the clock and radio wiring is not reversed and that the radio is well grounded (you can add a ground from the case to the main dash rail if you need to. As with any used item, there is a possibility also that there is just something wrong with the radio, but I don't think that yet!
Go to a stereo sales & installation shop, or even auto parts places usually have them now too, and get an adapter harness for your particular vehicle. They plug directly in to your existing harness, then you simply wire your new stereo to it,via directions. Few bucks now, will save hours of aggravation later,.and if you decide to sell vehicle later, and put old one back in, it's all there to plug back in, nice & clean.
Check at stereo sales/install place, or most auto parts stores have them now, and ask for adapter for wiring & plate for mounting in what ever vehicle you decide. It makes things a lot neater, & easier. Take player in with you to make sure, mounting plate is correct.
in most cases the wiring is already there, it is cheaper for the manufacturer to use one harness than many different ones, I know this is true on GM and Ford, should be the same with Chrysler products as well.
