Is there something wrong with the hornace installed in the vehicle for the radio? Hornace is usually there whether the car came with a factory radio or not.

In any event, there are normally a few unused terminals in the fuse box itself, locate one not used and run a wire to the dash and insert a fuse. Pick one from the list of accessories you may not have installed on the vehicle that would be switched and use it. Unless you have a super-duper model with all the bells and whistles, you should have a few to choose from.
