I'm in the middle of installing an cd player and i never done it before. I'm doing fine but, i have one problem, on the instructions it tells u to identify your leads i found them all execpt the battery lead and the only wire that is left is one wire with a little black fuse box at the end of it my uncle said that this is the battery lead and has to be connected if so, how do i go about doing that or is this even the lead. please help!!!!!!! By the way it's a mx6 93!

well first you need a volt meter or a multimeter, just test it and if it runs 12 volts with the key out that is your "battery lead"

Why aren't you using an aftermarket harness?!?! SO much faster and easier....

If you've already cut your harness off, I guess it's too late. Get a voltmeter, go to work on those wires. One will read 12v even with the car off, that one connects to the yellow wire on your new CD player. Another one will read 12v with the car on, but not with the key out of the ignition - that one goes to the red wire. Those are your battery leads.
