Hey there! I had the same problem and finally ordered the aux input kit from Jazzy and it worked great. I'm not super technical, but managed to disassemble the console as per their instructions, remove the radio and install the ribbon which adds an aux input through the disk changer port.
I fed an extension cable through to the armrest where the power outlet is located. Since this was mainly for my Ipod, i got the Belkin Ipod charger which has a mini side input and since they're in the same spot, I now have an Ipod cable wich charges and plays my ipod to the sterio.
since it's separate, I can also bring the mini extension cable out and plug it into my portable DVD and play my kids cartoons through the car stereo.
It all takes a bit of work, but WAY worth it to get the aux input capability from the stock radio.
