Just bought a used Honda Jazz 1.4 SE for my wife, and although it has a CD/Radio with an Aux button on it, there is no external connection I can see.

As she wants to be able to connect her iPod, I am looking at how to do this.

My background is in electronics so I'm more than happy to build circuitry if required, but am hoping I can just wire a headphone type plug into the stereo if possible.

Is there a socket I can get at, and if so does anyone have a wiring diagram?

I was looking for the same thing recently on a 94 Accord (different radio harness). Just looked around again to see if there's a solution on the 03-07 Honda radios and here are the results:

On some units you can solder into the aux interface. Otherwise you can cheat the radio into using its CD/Nav/XM expansion plug as an aux input. This usually requires an additional part to convince the radio you're using an expansion, but my guess is that part is just shorting a few pins, so you could probably whip out your background in electronics and save the $.

Anyway I recommend starting here and/or googling "honda fit jazz head unit wiring diagrams." As a last resort, the radio accessories work. 20-60 USD, easier than hacking but audio quality is not great.

Actually I hadn't seen your link, but it looks like the same info so I'll delete mine off here. I just missed your final paragraph for some reason. –  Rory Alsop Jun 13 '12 at 16:46

On some models, the aux socket (3.5mm stereo) is next to the cigarette lighter under a flap. Took me ages to find too.

Sadly on this model there is no AUX connection, but I managed to wire one up as per the guidance on @Tyler's answer. –  Rory Alsop Sep 2 '12 at 12:26
