WTF does that button do???

Just bought a 2005 focus ZX4 and there is a push button on the shifter panel, far right towards passenger side, down by passenger seat. I push, it lights up both on button and on panel. Could be a fan thing?. Do not know...As I said, just got car with no manual...on line download manual no help. Please advise.

As well, there is an Aux button on the in dash music. Can I plug my Mp3 player into this? Where is input?

Anyone

Does it look like a wheel spinning? That's the traction control button.

Anyone
Its in the back. Its intended for a CD Changer, but there are units called PIE adapters that plug into the back of the stereo, and trick it into thinking that there is a changer. Those adpaters have 2-3 inputs that you can plug items like a MP3 player into. They usually run about $75-$100.
