Installed stock amp back in vehicle.. cd player no longer works ?

Hey guys.

My 5.9 the previous owner like gutted my sound system.. Basicly he remvoed all infinity speakers installed new ones i forgot what brand they are off hand.. He removed the stock amp cut the wire harness's and wired all the wires together.. Removed the stock cd player and put in a crappy aftermarket sony one... I hate it because the 10 speakers were running off the stereo alone which is a 54x4 stereo like any other.. So I had ZERO BASS.. it was all mid and high basicly..

So today while Junkyard hunting for some parts for both Jeeps and my friends VW Jetta, I found a white 5.9 that was in a front collision and looks like it rolled also.. I got the amplifier out of it for $10 (saldy no grill or vents as they were destroyed) I rehooked all the wires back to the harness's and plugged the amp in and BOOM my sound system sounds a million times better.. I have good bass and the Jeep vibrates now lol. The only issue i noticed is the aftermarket stereo doesnt play CD's now.. Its just quiet but i can see the tracks playing.. Radio works great tho..

Sooo, how do I get my aftermarket stereo cd player to work ?? I read somewhere that I need to connect the blue/white wire on the aftermarket wireharness to the blue wire on the stock harness ? Does that make sense ? Or is it the blue wire on the aftermarket stereo to the bluewhite on the stock harness ? Im guessing i have to cut those 2 wires on the harness's and crimp them together with butt conectors right


Oh and if anyone wants to know the dead 5.9 was in Pick a Part near stafford virginia off route 1. The engine didnt take any dmg from the front end impact and it still had the transmission on it. The interior leather was in good condition and it still had all the door panels on it as well as the shifter handles and tail pipe, tow hooks ect.
