Newbie Questions

Hi everybody I am a newbie on here. I just picked up an '05 ZX5.
I have a question already. I noticed on the radio that there is an "AUX" option. Does this mean that I can hook something up to it, like an Ipod. I have tried looking for a place to plug something in but no luck.
Another question....Does anyone know where to get more key fobs at other than the dealer?

Thanks in advance,
Ed

If you have the same radio that came in my 05 there is not a plug to hook up a MP3 player or I Pod. I am not for sure why they have the Aux botton. It would be real nice if it did.

I believe you have to get an accessory that attaches to the back of the radio unit. Kinda like how cars have CD changer controls but you have to buy the changer.

You're probably better off getting an aftermarket unit or installing an FM modulator, since I'm betting Ford's add-on part isn't cheap.

You can usually pic up fobs at salvage yards for around $5. You can program them yourself.
