Can I use an external aux input in an f-150 with a this radio CQ-DFX403U
I have a 2007 F-150 and it has an aux input that is not attached to the radio. If I take that radio out and put mine in is there a way to hook that up to my radio so that I can still hook up my mp3 player to it.

you said CAN , i bet you meant CAN'T or CAN NOT. right?
the AUX port is just a line input, analog audio input,
it dont know MP3 .
it only amplies the analog audio found there.
you connect any device, to AUX. push play on the device.
then put car radio in to AUX input mode and play. the audio.
that is all there is to it.
the external device does all the heavy lifting, reading a file, and decoding it (mp3 decode) and then sends raw analog audio out.
the cable is sold and radioshack, or walfart or many other stores,
Target, most MP3 players, come with this cable,
they use mini phone plugs, stereo, type,. (3 contacts)
If your audio system has aux input then buy a compactible cable to connect your 3.5mm output oprt to the audio systems aux input. then change the audio source is Aux input in your audio system and play the audio using our ipod.

I'm pretty sure that there are RCA jacks in the back of the unit for the aux input. Don't have my owners manual so can't really say, but if there is an aux input, there is sure to be some RCA jacks in the back. So if you take the stereo out, look for those jacks then attach a 1/8 "Y" connector. Then route that wire to the front. Then you'll have something to connect your mp3 player to. =)
This is the link to your units pdf manual. It also covers a 7 series model which does have "Aux in" Your unit does not. You do have the capability to add a cd changer via the link on the back of the deck but it is Not an auxillary input. Now, it is correct that you could use a FM modulator running thru the tuner on 87.1 or 89.1. I think the confusion on this unit was a quick glance at the manual. It does have an "audio in" but it is specific to the panasonic disc changer and triggered thru the changer din cord. which is why you see no "Aux" on the display nor hear any audio. If you look at page 5 in the pdf version of the manual it states that the 403 does "Not" have aux in. The manual reads tricky on the other pages, sounding and looking like they are detailing the 403 when in fact the example is the 783. At the moment I can't think of a "good fix" for this pickle. I'll noodle it thru and if I can get you a solid way to make this do what you wish without lots of signal loss I'll post another comment. Hope this helps explain what's happened.
The heat is normal due to the large output IC's Panasonic uses. You need to get a "Laser Lens Cleaner" one that uses fluid. You can find them at just about any retail store these days for 15-20. Run it thru a couple times and hope that's the magic bullet to fix the issue, otherwise it needs service at a cost of 100-150 on average. If the cleaner does the trick, make it a habbit of cleaning your player every 3mos or 3000 mi. It truly is the best preventative maintanance on any CD/DVD/PC etc.! Hope this helps
