go to circuit city or best buy and buy a harness for your car. tell them you need a wiring harness for your 2002 chevy cavalier (or whatever car he has). you will most likely need a fitment kit or installation kit for your car unless its a ford. if you have never installed a CD player in a car, i highly suggest that you ask somone who has, or have somone teach you in the car. espically if it is a double din indash unit.

just make sure it's specific to the year/model

the wrong harness can cause serious electrical gremlins, and will void his warranty at the dealer

i'd get a wiring diagram and splice it in myself, i've heard some wiring harness disaster stories

NO do not cut any of the factory wires. leave that plug alone, they make a plug that will plug in to that harness. so you can wire to that.
