    You can use any 14 to 16 gauge wire for the ground but if itís an older Burb with a metal dash you shouldnít need the extra ground wire. If it does need the ground just loosen a screw on the radio side and screw it to steel under the dash.
    As far as the CD goes Iím not sure what you mean?

    well for the CD there is no wire for it, i think i has its own wire. when i put a CD in it says ERROR 10 and i dont know what that means.
    there is a ground wire but it comes off the stereo and it goes about 6 inches and just stops. and i want to just replace it.
    i dont know if there even is a CD wire that powers the CD player so i can listen to a CD. but i'm missing a wire and i believe its for that.

    What year and model did the radio originally come out of?
    Was it a factory or aftermarket?

    it is an after market. we've had it for about 6 years, i think. should i just buy a new one and skip trying to re-wire it?

    some of that stuff is so cheap now its not worth it to spend a lot of time trying to salvage something older when you can by a new one for $75 bucks.

    Your CD player must have power if it is giving you error codes. My bet would be that the laser lens has become misalligned over the years. I have never seen a car stereo that had seperate power leads for the CD player and the rest of the unit.

    I am with MN_Burban... Scrap it and get another one.
