Audiophile Radio CD/Aux Button

I have a 2004 Thunderbird. The Audiophile 6 CD Chager AM/FM
Radio has the CD botton labeled as CD/Aux. This implies that
I can connected another device to the radio and access it
through this button. Anyone have any details on how this is
done (or if it can be done). I also have the "Sat" button
and plan to install the Ford Sirius kit to make it useful.

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.

www.logjamelectronics.com 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.

Did you ever sort this out? DO you have it working?

I'd love to have my iPod on the AUX buton and be able later to add
Satellite.

Never did get it sorted out. I use a little FM transmitter gizmo to transmit
to the radio, but I am only listening to audio books, so I don't need the
sort of quality you need for music.

You might want to look at the following:
