When I have my headunit on any source, Sirius, CD, tuner, etc. it will randomly and automatically switch to Standby mode, then it will flip back to the source I was on, and then back to standby. A lot of the times I have to hit the source button to switch it back. I have cleaned all the terminals on my faceplate and the brain itself. Could this be something with the wiring? And if so what would it be? Or does the unit itself need to be sent in to be serviced. Any help would be appreciated Thanks!

This problem sounds very sirius. Sorry, couldn't resist, but "siriusly", the song alert feature is supposed to be something you select yourself, so it locates a particular song whenever it is played on the service. Do you recall setting this?
Are you using the Alpine KCA-SC100 tuner or another?
When a CD changer or Sirius satellite receiver is added to a system, the source unit’s main wiring harness must be disconnected before the changer and/or satellite receiver’s CeNET cable is connected to the source unit. Otherwise, the source unit will not “recognize” that a CD changer or Sirius satellite receiver has been added.
Apparently, this auxiliary input only works for a Kenwood CD changer or a sirius radio connection. At least that is my conclusion after finding the same problem. Let me know if you figured anything out on this.
The Sirius Tuner is separate from the AM/FM/CD, check the plugs between the two. If all is snug, pull the SIRIUS tuner and go to a JVC dealer that would have any deck w/sirius as an option and plug it in. If it sees it, it's more than likely a problem with your deck. My guess is it's a bad SIRIUS tuner. There have been LOTS!!! Good news is there easy to replace if bad, and there cheap! $45.00 from Crutchfield rebuilt.
Once everything is connected including antennae, there must be period of time for the head unit to recognize the SAT tuner (SC-C1 in this case). When I started up the car the next day the head unit automatically tuned itself to the Sirius preview channel.
The normal source selections for this model when the SRC button is pressed are: TUNER, CD and STANDBY.
If there is no CD inside the tray, or if it is dirty, unreadable, inverted or damaged, then the CD source option will not display at all.
If the there is a known good CD placed properly inside the tray and the CD source will still not show as a source selection, you may need to RESET the unit. The reset button is near mid bottom. This will also erase all settings, memory and tuner presets.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Try putting the unit in standby via the "SRC" button FIRST..., then press the menu button and cycle through to the "AUX 1" option and activate this....then press menu button again. When the unit is next switched on, you should have an "AUX" option accessible via the "SRC" button which will cycle through all of the availale modes ....standby-tuner-cd-aux etc etc.
