For what reason - a aftermarket radio ??? All wires necessary should be able to be pulled from the existing radio feeds. Just guessing here :)

NO. Both of you are WRONG! This car (like 99% of all cars in last 10 years) has a Can Bus wiring system. For the idiots above that already replied, it is data sent through 2 wires at varying voltages to control many different functions. You will have to go to the ignition harness to get a true ignition turn on wire for an aftermarket radio. Use a basic test light and be sure that the wire has 12V while cranking to insure true ignition.
