About 1 year ago i got my CDA - 9885 installed at JB hifi along with my 2 amps, 6" splits and 6" speakers with my 12" kicker sub.
Now everything has worked fantastic for the last year, then yesterday for no reason this happened:
It just cut out and turned off, so i turned it on again and it went to radio then it played fine, i switched to cd player then it just keeps turning off again, (now sometimes it will play the cd without sound and sometimes it says "ERROR" or "EJECT" and sometimes it wont even play radio with sound. and even sometimes it plays the cd fine with sound but it will only last like 10 seconds?
Now i have not touched anything it has been working great for the last year. also i have checked all the fuses.
Now my question is could my Amplifier running to my Sub actually cause my head deck to turn off? as it may be that that amplifier is temperamental.
any help is needed as im sure its not a wiring problem.

Does you car volume get lower when you stop. If not sounds like an internal issue. No sound at all my brother hooked his up and when he switched to tuner everything would go through the subs but you would not know it sounded like his 6x9s no bass. was a wiring issue. I dont know if this helped or not.
The best way would be to add the Alpine optional proprietary iPod connection cable. This will give you full control of the iPod from the radio. Your CDA-9885 uses the KCE-422i optional cable.
The cheapest way (with lower quality audio) would be to use a generic FM modulator with a mini-jack input. The Scosche FMMOD01 shown here is sold in numerous stores from $17 - $50. Another downside with this method is that you have no control of the iPod from your head unit. But, hey! It works.
Your antenna wire could be loose behind the radio because sometime they will have to use an adapter because of the size another thing could be if you have a sirius/xm radio they will send you an adapter to cut down on the static for free also the adapter on the sirius could be loose or bad good luck
The Alpine has two tigger wires when it turns on. One is an AMP TURN ON wire (blue/white) and a PWR ANT wire (blue) and that wire only comes on when using the radio or an optional HD radio unit ... When it was installed/connected . someone hooked your amp turn on wires for your "full range amps" to the PWR ANT wire. And the sub amp trigger is either hooked correctly to the AMP TURN ON WIRE or somewhere else, it probably shouldn't be... Check it. Amp triggers should all be to the blue/white wire from your alpine. Warning: Alpine trigger wires, are very easy to mess up they supply a very limited amount of power.
