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.
the yellow is your memory wire. it has to be able to stay hot when you take the key out of the ignition. see what in your car still works when you turn the key off, then just connect the yellow wire to that.
Positvie is red, ground is black, and or black with a white stripe. the yellow wire is also a positive wire, it is the memory wire which should be hooked to something that will always be hot, even when the key is completely off. If you have a power antenna, that is controlled by the blue wire
Here are the wiring codes for the VT, VN-VT Commodores:
Accessory (12V) Yellow
Battery (12V) Orange/White
Ground (earth) Black/White
Antenna power (12V) Yellow/Red
Front Left + Tan
Front Left - Grey
Front Right + Light Green
Front Right - Dark Green
Rear Left + Brown/Black
Rear Left - Yellow/Blue
Rear Right + Blue/Orange
Rear Right - Blue/Black
Antenna Up White (VR-VT)
Antenna Down Blue (VR-VT)
Phone Mute Yellow/Black (VT)
Dimmer In (12V) Brown/White
Dimmer Out (12V) Grey (VT)
well on cd changers and cd players belive it or not the yellow wire is power and the red is a remote turn on yellow to the battery and red to a fuse under the dash or a remote wire from the cd player an di have no idea bout thecar never messed wit them u could go to wall mart and look at the book they have there for cars and see if u do or not let me no if i could help
what kind of car do you have a Chevy by any chance?? Any way that red wire needs to see 12 volts in order for the radio to turn on. But this is the wire that should get power when the key is turned on NOT directly to the battery. By the way, If you wires to the battery make sure that you have a fuse no more than 6 to 10 inches away from the battery. You should no matter what make you have be able to find a constant 12 volt for the yellow wire and a ground for the black in the dash. Hit me back with year make and model and I'll let you know how to find some ignition.
