I have an '07 500 with a nothing fancy std Ford radio that has an Aux button
that appears to work. I would like to hookup a Sirius Sportster Rx (w/
direct output) to the aux input to this radio. Has anybody done? Is it
possible? There's no obvious input somewhere on dash and I haven't pulled
the radio yet. The dealer just gives me blank stares when I ask.

have "AUX" button"
I don't think I can add one to my 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid, because there's
no unused connector on the back of my indash 6CD. 2006 is listed ;-(
For my Honda, I bought one from Logjam Electronics. It just plugged in to
an empty connector on the back of the radio. I couldn't see the connector,
but I plugged in the cable without removing the radio from the dash. You
should already have a cable that ends in a pair of RCA jacks. If not,
they're about $5 locally. The Sirius appears to be an external CD changer,
CD1, track1. I can use the indash CD by pressing CD to toggle between
indash and external.
Logjam says you need an Aux button, not a CD/Aux.
You might want to confirm with PIE or Logjam or Ford that there is no
change from 06 to 07 on the radio compatibility.
