08 Aftermarket stereo wiring harness

I have an 08 patriot with no factory nav or upgraded sound system. Also missing steering controls. The factory radio doesnt have AUX so im upgrading the head unit just for the sole purpose of AUX input. Ive seen standard harnesses online for like 15 bucks and was going to purchase one, but the guy at bestbuy told me i had to shell out extra for a harness that was able to control the power or whatever to the radio. He mentioned something about the red wire. Is this true? Ive also read on these forums about connecting the red wire to a cig lighter... Just would like some clarity on what to do before install.
