Im hooking a cd player into my 93 toyota pickup ive got the ground and the power hooked up but nothings happening what the deal

A fuse may be blown inside the unit. Before you install it, check its' operation with an external power source (12 Volts DC) to make sure it works first. If it doesn't power-up, check the fuse inside.

I cant get power is my harness missing wires?

Yes, your red wire is for ignition, yellow wire is for battery and black is ground. The red ignition wire is for the radio to turn off and on with the ignition. The yellow is always hot, for memory.
