Question about Car Audio & Video
I just installed an Alpine CDA-D852 into my 92 toyota camry (hard wired not factory plug in connectors). after connections were made according to the diagram on the back of the receiver it has no sound. The equalizer on the face plate of the unit is bouncing just like it should while playing but no output. The receiver worked fine in my old toyota truck. Are the speaker connections special or different than just + and -? Your help is appreciated. Could there be a connection I have missed that would let the stereo appear to work but have no output?

Just a guess, I’d say who ever installed it didn’t hook up the connector behind it. But lets say they did. In most cases, the radio’s connector bundle will have a fuse. It’s a good idea to check your car’s fusebox first to see if any fuses are blown there. In either case, if you replace a blown fuse with "the right value", and it blows again, have a tech check it out. Note that if you try to get to the rear of the unit, do a little research into how the radio is accessed through the dashboard. Most car radios aren’t quickies to get at and some folks can do damage trying to get at it, but if you methodically take logical steps, you should be able to pull the radio, check the connectors, locate the fuse if it has one. Of course, there may be a wiring incompatibility, meaning, the OEM radio had it’s own specific wiring harness, the Alpine was installed, but someone didn’t get the adapter harness to fit the car. Who knows. Good luck. TekTrax

Check your ipod to see if it is shuffle mode. Alpine doesn't document this but they have a bug that causes the problem that you describe. If the ipod is in shuffle mode the Alpine gets confused.

Hold down the (F) button for several seconds. Release button and select (General) by turning volume knob and press (enter). Now select (Power IC) by turning volume knob and press (enter). Now turn knob and select (on) then press (enter). Hold (escape) button for several seconds.

There is an option in the unit itself to turn off the internal amplifier. If you push the 'menu' button, then go to the setup/settings menu, and then i believe it was under the 'general settings' tab. there's a option called INT IC or something. Make sure that is turned on.

actually, chrysler/dodge has factory Infinity sound systems installed. The nice part about these systems is that you dont have to bypass the amplifiers in order to put a new radio in, but simply power up the amp by hooking up the amp turn on wire at the harness. The alpine should have 2 blue wires coming off of the back, one that is solid, the other with a white stripe. The one that is solid only has 12v when the fm/am radio is on (used for power antenna) but cuts off when other sources are used (cd,aux,ipod). My guesses are, you have the amp wire on the vehicle harness (blue) tied into this wire, instead of the BLUE/WHITE wire on the alpine which has 12v as long as the radio is on. i hope this solves your problem, 9 times out of 10 on a chrysler this is it.
