Moved to the correct forum.
You can't, the only option is to replace the radio with an aftermarket one that has those capabilities.

Default USB is on my to-do list

I was looking to install a USB port just to have an in-car phone charger. At the same time I was hoping to figure out a way to hardwire (kind of)the docking station for my Sirius S50 - at least to the extent that I wouldn't have exposed wiring for the power supply, line input to stereo aux, and could keep the coax to the satellite mostly tucked neatly behind the dash panels.

Regarding the power feeds, I figured there had to be a way to do this by tapping into the 12V power supply for the cigarette lighter. All it would take is a small step-down transformer to 5V for the USB, and to 2.5V for the Sirius. I was going to cannibalize the electronics from a car power adapter for the Sirius and figured one could do something similar for the USB.

Of course, this was all before I required a clutch + transmission replacement , so any elective DIY improvements to my in-car electronics system have been put on the back burner.

All that being said, the simplest solution for my purposes (and definitely for yours, since you want to run music from your phone to the radio) would be a new head unit.
