the radio is actually right above your gas pedal, and the hot wire plugs in the bottom The actual radio guts in models 88 - 94 was above the gas pedal and the part in the dash was similar to a wired remote with display....the radio in a 95 and newer is all in the dash. You need to remove the trim panel (simply pops off but watch your headlight switch) there will be two tabs on the radio and you push these down and pull them out. The "hot" wire is on the back of the radio It is the outside wire on the biggest portion of the plug. What was orriginally three plugs in 88 was changed to one plug. Answer I just changed the radio in my 98. The constant flow hotwire is the yellow wire in the harness. The red wire is the interrupted flow wire which turns on and off with the key.

How do you find the hot wire for the CD player on a 1988 Chevy Celebrity?

With the radio wire harness where you can get to use a light probe to find a wire with power to it, ignition key off. That will be the always hot wire that is used to power the memory that remembers stations when the radio is off, it should be yellow. Make note of which wire that is. Then with the key on probe the connector again for a second hot wire, it should be red. That will be the one I would think you would want to use to power your CD player
