12v+ wire in trunk behind panel?

I'm putting a small amp in my mustang and ran into a wire near the emergency fuel pump shutoff, it looks like its for a CD changer or something, can I use it for the battery to amp?

that wire looks a real thin gauge. if your amplifier pulls too many amps it can heat that wire to the point of failure.

Definitely not.

Check the amp requirements for the guage wire you need to power the amp. Running the power cable for the amp in the Mustang is really easy, maybe a 1 hour job at most if you're being really clean and tidy with the installation.

I most definitely would not use any existing power cables.
