Question about Alpine CDA-7863 CD Player

1 Answer

Not Working My Alpine does not read when I turn the ignition on. It makes a clicking noise so I know it is getting power. I have checked the fuses, they are good. I do not understand why when I hit the power button it does not come on. It also has a CD in it that I cannot get out because it fails to do anything. I do not know what else to do can anyone help?

My only suggestion is to check your wiring.
Be positive your accessory wire [red wire] is hooked up to the correct wire from your car's wiring harness.
To be positive this is the problem, connect both the red and yellow wires [accessory and battery] coming from your head unit to the battery wire from the car's harness temporarily.
Do not, however, leave your head unit wired this way. It will never shut off and drain your battery.
If your head unit still does not turn on, and you say the fuse is good, you most likely have a bad head unit.
Most head units now have a fuse in the back next to the wiring harness as well.
Don't forget to check that one as well, in case you missed it.

I have a alpine cda-9886 and 2 days ago while i was driving the thing just turned off outta nowhere i checked the fuses and the battery

there should be an inline fuse that is on the back of the radio. i know I would hate to do this too but I would take the radio out check the fuse on the back of the radio along with the inline fuse in the cables. Also you need to check your connections mainly your power cables. Make sure that they are not touching ground and make sure that all of your wires are reinforced with electrical tape.

My alpine CDE-7870 Cd player stopped working and i cant find out what is the matter with it

The power line has a blown fuse. Check under the dash or wherever the fuse box is that controls the stereo. Also, check the inline power wire cause they have those little cylindrical fuses that blow. Also, make sure you got a good ground and check for shorts.

No not your shorts. Check for shorts in the wiring.

Cd player lost power after hooking up new amp and sub

What AMPlifier are you using? Where is the main power wire and ground wire for the amp connected? (an amplifier with 25Wx2 or larger should be connected with proper fused wire directly to battery). I would check the fuses in your car as well (when the ignition key turned ON you should have power both to the Yellow wire and Red wires on the Alpine radio, there will be two fuses you must check in the car if not but I have no idea what car you are driving (one will be the radio fuse) (the second could be marked radio 2, or clock, or lighter ... or a host of other things) so I cannot tell you which ones to check, so look in your vehicle owners manual it should help. What did you connect the Blue / Whte wire from the Alpine radio to?

Newly installed alpine resetting

Chevy stock speakers are 8 ohm. You should change out the stock speakers. Or at least dissconnect the back speakers and see if cd player still overloads and shuts off.
