AUX cable installation via car phone

Hello guys,

I have been wanting to install an AUX cable in my car for a while but I want to do it myself. I have seen several posts about it and some are quite helpfull, but I have a specific question:

I have a car phone. Well, residual car phone. The phone is not there anymore, but the dock is still there, with a little cable sticking out.

I have buttons on my steering wheel to controll it, but it doesnt work for anything.

Now, I was think, At some point the car phone woudlve been used over the speakers. So, the infrastructure should allready be in place...

Cant I just hook up an AUX cable somewhere in the phone dock?
If so... Could anyone of you help me or just give your 2 cents?

Thanks all!

The auxiliary input I got from sends the incoming call thorough my speakers when I am playing music through my phone. I don't know how, and if, it would work with your car, but it might be worth looking into.
