I just checked every fuse and they are all fine. The only thing i can think of is i took one off the 7.5 fuses out of a slot because i did not have any spares so now that slot is empty. Could this have somthing to do with it??

Is this in a VX ?
Does your cigarette lighter also work once the keys off ?
Could be your key barrel ...

What are the chances the yellow and red wires are touching in the harness ?

Put an "ON- ON" style toggle switch somewhere in the car, attach the "accessories" input from the cd player to the common terminal on the switch, put the accessories line from the fuse/ignition barrel to one of the NO terminals and a battery wire to the other NO terminal. In one position, the cd player will come on and off with the accessories from the ignition barrel, the other position the cd player will come on/stay on regardless of the ignition barrel.

Lol i am no pro
Even a non pro can use electrical tape! cover the joints and you might find the problem goes away...

Sounds like the accessories power wire to the cd player is touching the battery power wire.
