I don't know what Ford advertises as connecting to the Aux port.
Some aftermarket stereos have dual RCA inputs for MP3 players, but the
factory units seem to be more involved, with multi-pin connectors.
Car Audio/Video - Auxiliary Input Converters.
It looks like the 2004 Thunderbird isn't specifically listed.
They show "2002-2003 Thunderbird- Radio Series 132 or 868".
I don't know if yours is different.
I added one of the PIE adapters to my Honda. I have an MP3 player that is
now accessible via the "cd" button, and the internal cd player is available
with a second push of that button. This is far preferable to an FM adapter
for adding MP3. You already have the satellite input, which integrates
satellite control onto the head unit. The Aux input is sound only with the
adapter that I have, and control is still on the separate MP3 player. They
sell iPod-specific adapters that integrate some control.
PIE and Blitzsafe make the adapters, but they don't do end user support.
You get that from Logjam.
