No Subs in CD mode??

For some reason, the amp/sub lines only activate while I'm in tuner mode listening to the radio. as soon as I put in a cd, the amp shuts off. WHY!?!?!?!?!

Ah, common problem. You hooked up the remote turn on wire for the amp to the power antenna wire (solid blue). Hook up the remote turn on wire for the amp to the blue wire with white stripe. The power antenna only provides power when the deck is in tuner mode for the power antenna to be extended, intuitively, and cuts power in any other mode, because certainly it's only needed for AM/FM reception.

Cda 9885, When in tuner mode sub does not play


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.

Make sure you are using the blue/white wire to turn the amp on. The blue wire is antenna remote and turns off when leaving tuner mode. The blue/white wire is amp remote turn on.

It sounds like you are using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire ( amplifier remote turn on) to turn your amp on. The power antenna remote turns off when leaving tuner mode.

When i have the stereo on radio my amp/subs work fine, but as soon as i switch the mode to USB ( built in ipod connector) it cuts out the power to the amp/subs. It only works on tuner mode (radio) why?


use the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) instead of the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) to turn your amp on. the power antenna wire shuts off when leaving tuner mode.

My alpine cda9885 plays my subs when the tuner setting is on but nothing else, The amp turns off when I switch between the settings and doesn't turn on until on the tuner.

Troubleshooting in car cd player


that is very strange but it could be that when you put the cd in the radio it maybe sending out a quick shot of amplified power I would try disconecting the subs put in a cd let it play a little then plug the subs in while the cd is playing and see if they work if this works you may to get a new radio or put in a switch to turn the subs off or some type of momentary circuit breaker I'm just trying to help I never saw anything like that before good luck........

Amp and subs cut out when I insert a cd in my radio


You have the amp connected to the blue wire on the radio instead of the blue one with the white stripe. The blue one is the power antenna wire so when you switch to cd, it would close a power antenna. If you dont have a blue /white wire, you can hook it to the red 12v wire. Good Luck

Amps wont stay on


try to look at the connection on the back of the cd player and make sure that the amp power wire is connected to the power wire on the wire harness on the back of the cd player and that should work but i only need one amp for a pair of 6by9s and subs try to bridge the speakers all to one amp that should cause it to sta on while in cd mode hope that helps
