    Hello, I have had my Ford Ka for a while now and I recently got a new phone, a Galaxy S5, however the USB on my new phone are not compatible with my cars US settings and therefore cannot play music through my car speakers via USB. Does anyone know if my car has a AUX-IN port in the car I have looked everywhere and cannot find it? Help much appreciated. My car is a 12 plate Ford Ka Zetec 1.2 3dr.

    Check near the cigarette lighter or the glovebox, this is where they are usually are.

    Also check the car manual if you have it.

    Internet specifications suggest it has it and its nowhere to be found by the cigarette lighter is the USB and its not in the glovebox.

    My girlfriend has a fiesta, it's got a button on the radio for aux but no input - think it's a option. Very easy to install though!

    I got a new radio for my Ford KA with an AUX and USB for £50 on Amazon. It was very easy to install as well.

    What year of Fiesta, and what radio model? If it has a USB input, it almost certainly has AUX functionality built into the radio so a cheap AUX input package from eBay or Amazon and half an hour to fit it would do you well.

    If it can play MP3's from a USB stick this is probably the cheapest option for £3.17:

    You plug it into the usb, connect your phone to the Bluetooth then on your radio just select track 1 on the usb and track 1 is always what your phone is sending it with about a 5 second delay.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I'm not entirely sure it will work thr USB slot works by detecting USB Mass Storage. Thats the very reason my phones not compatible as it doesn't have this setting.

    That works as a usb memory stick, if your car can read files from a usb memory stick then that will work.

    Initially the main reason I wanted to know if there was an AUX input was because I want to use my phone as my sat nav and for the directions to come through the speakers, would this still occur with this usb?

    I had the same problem. I put the audio wire in the aud socket, which is located under the gear stick by the mini USB ports. I was playing around for ages and realised that the sound won't come out of the radio unless you take out the cd - stupid invention but hey!!! If you take the cd out and put the audio cable on and in your phone it will work, just press the cd button to do so
