It sounds like you have the red or yellow wire hooked up to your illumination or dimmer. check those two first. Yellow is constant 12V and red is accessory (switched) 12V.

Why does my ABS light stay on after I start my 2006 Torrent

If the ABS light is on it means there is a fault in the ABS system. You will have to take it in to a mechanic and get the computer scanned to find out what part of the ABS system has faulted. Most of the time its a wheel speed sensor. Until the faulty part is replaced the ABS light will be on & your ABS will not work.

My g6 2007 does not have the original stereo harness. Where can I buy one to install it myself so i can add a aftermarket stereo?

I would call all of the salvage yards until you are able to locate one where they have your car. Best to start as close to home as possible because you are likely going to have to go and pull it off. The Dallas County Auto Salvage yard on MacArthur will pull it for you, all you got to do is pick it up. They may mail it. I am not for sure about the mail thing though.

Jensen cd player no longer working(self-installed)

First check the wiring to the radio. You may measure the power being ok but you also need to make sure the ground connection is ok. If this is all ok it may be that you have dry solder joints on wiring socket inside the radio or a blown track or protection diode.

Cd player in my 1996 pontiac sunfire dont work but the radio does

My husband's 96 sunfire did the same thing as well. We tried everything to fix it, right down to opening it up and checking it. They just burn out over time. Unfortunately there's not much you can do, and to have it replaced by the dealer will cost more than your car is probably worth, being almost 14 years old. Do yourself a favor, go to your local walmart, you can pick up a decent CD player (with an mp3 player input, so no FM transmitter!) for about 50 bucks, and they are easy to install. It's the only thing that worked for us. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance!

Installed sony stereo in 2001 dodge ram

are you running an amplifier off the deck? it may be that you are turning the amplifier on with the power antenna wire instead of the amp turn on lead. so when you go from tuner to cd the amp turns off.

Mounting CD player correctly.

you could try to see if the store that you bought it from has a faceplate or converter to hold it in place

(I have a 94 Buick Century, they don't make the model of cd player standard for that vehicle anymore.)
