A reputable car stereo place will sell you a wiring harness for your vehicle and after market stereo, that tells you which color wires to hook to what.

No power stereo

sometimes there is a fuse on the back of the radio as well... and if its good, check all your fuses in your box. Check for poor installation of radio, such as black tape instead of wire connecters etc.

My 2001 ford focus se radio will turn on but no sound and it wont take a cd

Sounds like an internal problem in the radio unit. Many Ford dealers have an echange program where you can turn in your old unit and get a remanufacured one to replace it. There is also the option of getting a used unit from a salvage yard, but many radio and stereo systems in cars now have programming which prevents them from working if it is placed into another vehicle. A used one will probably have to be reprogrammed to work in your car.

Although I do not recommend it, becase of serious electrical problems that are often caused due to sloppy installing and wiring, an aftermarket unit is also an option.
