Surely you mean that your cd player is connected to the accessory power and not the starter. If you want your cd player to receive constant power then locate the accessory power wire of the cd player(the one that receives power when the key is on) and connect it to a FUSED constant power source(battery). Usually, if it's a three wire hookup it will be yellow, red and black. Yellow (constant power), red (switched power) and black is ground. If this is the hook up then the red needs constant power. If it's a two wire hook up, red (switched) and black(ground), then the red needs constant power.
Not to question you about the red being constant power but I have a pioneer deh-1600 car stereo and red is hooked to electric terminal controlled by ignition switch (on/off) and if your unit has a yellow wire that goes to constant power. The only problem with hooking up the red wire to constant would be if you happened to accidentally leave your player on it could drain the battery. Hope this helped a little. Good luck.
