Question about Alpine Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have an Alpine CDA9884 the deck has been in my car for about 3mos and I've been listening to my speaker from the power put out by the deck itself. I have installed an Alpine PDX 4.100 and a PDX 1.600. When I had everything connected using the proper guage wire and making sure all connections were true, the remote turn on from the deck puts out no power, thus the amplifiers don't turn on. I determined that there is not power to the remote turn on using a test light. What do I look at now?

    I tried what the manual says to do, and still nothing, interestingly enough in the radio mode there doesn't seem to be any power to the power ant. wire either. Is my deck defective?

The manual says that you should power off the internal amp if using external amps. Maybe you need to do this to get power going through the remote turn on?

in the menu its "POWER IC ON" you need to change it to "POWER IC OFF"

hope this helps?

    hmm, it seems to have a lot of power faults on the output side...maybe a fault internally, If it's still under warranty I'D RMA it and let Alpine fix it ;)

I have a 1998 Toyota Camry...Trying to hook up an Alpine...Need to know what wires to connect to the alpine.Car Wires are same with grey spots.....


From what I can tell you cut the wires to your factory wiring harness and that is what you want to hook up to. My advice is to reconnect the factory harness and buy the adapter harness for your car and use that to hook up to the alpine it will save you hours and possibly your sanity. If you want to hook up directly to your car without the adapter you will need to figure out what wires are the power ignition and ground with a multimeter or power light. Easiest way to find ground is to just put in a ground wire with in a foot or so from the deck. Then it's just a guess and check for the correct placement of power. I suggest turning the power placement on the deck to what speaker you want and repeat for all speakers until your finished. Or you can buy a Chiltons or Haynes manual the should have a wiring diagram

Im adding a alpine cda9884 headset with a ktp-445 already installed on it into my 96 grand cherokee. I am. Going from the ktp445 straight to the speakers. My problem is i cant get anything at all out of...


how is the signal going from headunit to the power pack? Should have a harness from the power pack to the deck (h/u). then out to the factory harness in the jeep. remember there is an amp under rear seat so you need to bypass that to make everything work. yes the blue/white wire from deck to blue/white wire ath the power pack (amp) should be connected in order for the power pack to turn on.

I need the wiring dia. for alpine 8020


If the alpine 8020 is a deck(head unit) the wire diagram is as followed:

Red: Accessory
Yellow: Constant Power
Black: Ground
Orange to orange/white is a illumination or dimmer wire.
White: front left speakers
Grey: front left (white black and so on usually the negative on the speaker connections)
Purple rear left (purple black = neg)
Green: Rear Right
And if a video deck(light green is park brake)
(which is usually just a ground) so legally it needs to be on your park brake but can be grounded to make it work.

Speakers? (Terminals larger one is positive, smaller one is negative) Place capacitors on if needed to filter out and clear up bass

Hope this helps couldn't look uo what a alpine 8020 was..

Noise through car speakers when connected to amp


If the subs are making a humming or RPM sound check your ground on the amp , make sure its a good ground. Always run your power wire from battery by itself down one side of vehicle. Groun should be no longer than 2 feet. If that dont help you can buy a noise supresor that goes inbetween your head unit and amp through RCA's with a ground on it . Hope this helps.

No sound from front speakers during CD operation.


I think you are using an external amplifier,if this is the case,you may be using the wrong remote wire for the amp.
Alpine use two blue wires,BLUE (only) this wire is for the pwr antenna and every time you insert a cd, this pwr line cut out.
BLUE/WHITE STRIPE this is the remote wire that you need to connect the remote of the amplifier.

thanks for rating

No sound to the in car speakers from my alpine cda-9827 cd player


What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go.

Alpine CDA-7840


Some 4-Runners have a factory system that uses a separate amplifier to power the rear speakers. In this case you need to activate the amplifier using the blue/white remote output from your Alpine deck. It sounds like the wire that activates the amplifier is currently attached to the deck's blue "power antenna" output, so that the amplifier is only on when the tuner is selected. Disconnect whatever is attached to the blue wire behind the deck, and attach it to the blue/white wire instead. That should solve the problem.

Alpine car cd player has no volume


It's possible that you have a shorted speaker wire. If one of the speaker wires is pinched, grounded or shorted it will cause the deck's internal amplifier to shut down. The easiest way to check is with a multimeter's resistance function. Remove the CD player and unplug it. Set your multimeter for "resistance" or "continuity". Attach the black probe to chassis ground; you can use the black ground wire in the deck's harness, clean dash metal, or the outer ring of your cigarette lighter. Use the red probe to test each of the speaker outputs in the harness: white, gray, green and violet. If you find a speaker wire that shows any continuity with chassis ground, then that's the cause of the problem. A speaker with a damaged voice coil may also cause the deck to shut down. To test this, probe the positive and negative leads of each speaker and test the resistance between them. For example, to test the left front speaker you'd put the red probe on the white wire and the black probe on the white/black wire. Each speaker should read a minimum of 3 ohms of resistance. If you get a lower reading then it might be causing your problem. If you don't find a problem with any of the speaker wires, then chances are the deck's internal amplifier has failed.
