First off I'd like to say hello to everyone as I am new to the forums. I just got my 05' GT last month and I'm still getting used to most things being different than my previous ride. (an '00 Durango)
Something unusual I noticed is a cable about 2 inches in length extending from way down under the dashboard and just kind of hanging down there... The end of the cable is the same size and shape as an aux input jack but I am hesitant to plug anything into it because it is in a really strange place and I have no idea what its purpose is.
Is this strange cable in all mustangs? It's midnight here so I can't get a good picture right now but I may be able to post one tomorrow.

Yea, what type of connector.
3.5mm stereo plug or jack?
Ford made an aux add on called trip tunes.
If the stereo is OEM I am betting it is TripTunes.
I know the S197 electrical system inside and out.
That is aftermarket something. Could be anything.
Pics are worth a thousand words...
I bet its TripTunes
You kind see it just poking out down there near the clutch.. I tried plugging my android into it and it recognizes the plug as headphones. However, I tried playing sounds from the recorder app on my phone though it and heard nothing.
Hey CR26! Could you repost those pics bigger size? Got free time and I'm all for finding out what it's for!
For the record, I had the FRD-04 POD/S that let me control an iPod/iPhone through the Shaker...had all sorts of issues with gauges and even my engine dieing...so I ripped it out and cut off the pass-through connector to C290A. Had the wrong pins though, just need to resolder.
BUT if the jack is already hiding in plain sight...I'll use that instead!
