That cable is a small cable that only sends a small voltage signal to the amp so its not a huge power cable that sends the main booming power to it.
Its simple to fix so dont sweat it.
To get the cd player out remove the little thing that is on top of the dash (windshield defroster - it just pulls right up so no screws there, shuv in a flat screw driver and pry right up)
When you remove that you will see 2 or 3 screws that bolt on the front piece of the dash to the rest of the dash. Remove those and also there is 1 more screw when you remove the ashtray (right under the AC/heater controls)
Now that piece pulls straight out. There you should see few bolts that hold the aftermarket cd player bracket to the rest of the dash. Unbolt those and it should pull out unless they installed the stock cd player anti theft bracket in the back.
If you pull it out and it wont come out, open your glove box and behind it there should be a wire wrapped in foam that can disconnect in 2. Disconnect it (that is the radio antenna cable)
The cables connected to the stock wiring should be marked and the remote amp cable on the cd player should be a thin light blue cable w/ white line through it (and if uncut there should be a plug thingy in the end of it).
