Once you have your fuse tap, the only tools you really need to connect the car radio to the fuse box are a wire crimper tool and a utility knife. If you are installing the radio in a classic vehicle, you'll need a Phillips screwdriver to connect the wire from the radio to the fuse box. Of course, you will also need a fuse rated with an amperage value rated for your car radio. You should be able to find the recommended amperage rating for the fuse in the radio installation guide. Most low-powered radios can use a 20-amp fuse without any issues. However, for high-powered stereos, those that produce 100 watts of power or more. You may have to use a 25- or 30-amp fuse. You may be able to use a wire clasp or harness already under the dash to secure the wiring from the radio to the fuse box. If there is no available clasp or harness, though, you can use some ordinary electrical tape to secure the new power wire for the radio to an existing wire bundles beneath the dashboard. The only other items you might need are a piece of 12-gauge electrical wire and a butt connector if the power wire from the radio is too short to reach the fuse box.

If you are not using a custom wiring harness, look for a bare, unpainted bolt or screw that contacts the bare metal of your vehicle's chassis. Loosen the bolt, slip the ground wire underneath (this is almost always a black wire), then tighten the bolt. If your ground wire doesn't contact bare metal, your stereo won't operate. A loose or weak ground connection can result in signal noise interfering with your music.

As wires carry electricity they get hot, so it is possible after a lot of use for a connection to melt and no longer make contact. If the connect is outside of the cabin of the car it could get rusty or dirty to the point where electricity will no longer flow. It is also possible that from use and vibrations the wires simply disconnect. In this case you need a wiring diagram for your vehicle, a circuit tester and a lot of patience.

If there is no connector pin, unscrew the fuse box connector screw with a screwdriver. Strip 1/2 inch of sheathing from the wire with a wire crimper tool. Slide the bare wire under the connector and tighten the screw.
