I doubt that. if it was able to plug in to the back of the radio, it should work. ford used that port for external cd changers.
mine is cd once, the disc player starts up. twice, it goes to ipod... but I have a usa-spec adapter. I'd imagine they all work mostly the same way though.
mine also freaks out if you plug the ipod in while the key is on, or the engine running. I always wait until after the truck's been sitting off a while to plug in the ipod if i have it out for whatever reason, and it usually works. I think the adapter keeps power for a while after the key is turned off, and plugging it in during that time window messes with it.
sometimes, though I get a 'no mag' error. ther're pretty temperamental little things lol.
