Aftermarket radio install problems

Hi guys! I recently installed a new audio deck (Kenwood) in my Pontiac G5 2008. I've got the metra wiring harness that came with a little red wire for electricity. All my wires are connected to the ones on the radio, but where the .... Do i plug the red one? Like my radio is installed but i don't have any power so it's not working... May somebody help me? I know it's a 12v power wire but where do I plug it? And how?

I changed the deck because the original one was having a hard time reading cd and auxiliary jack wasn't working anymore, and I drive 10hrs straight like four times a month.
We tought about by passing it by the fuse box inside the car but how so?
Waiting for your help! I'm leaving in 10 days so that would be great to have music by then!
For those who wants pictures of the end or red power wire to see where I can plug it, gmail me

depending on what the instructions say find a switched or constant power fuse and use an adapter like the one in the link below
