How can I get my ipod to work on the Alpine CDA-7892?

Ai-NET/RCA Interface cable (KCA-121B)
Converts the changer port to RCAs... then an RCA to female 3.5mm female adapter.
Or an FM Modulator.

Hi i turn my alpine on and i have 2 retune the radio stations i store them but when i get back in my car i have 2 start 2 retune any idears

Probably you dont have the constant pos (+) wire hooked up to hot (+) wire and only to a source that is switched. Switched means every time your key is removed from ignition switch the positive current from that source will also power down. There are two positive leads from the unit, 1 always hot and the other needs to be switchable. The constant hot (usually yellow) powers the memory for your settings. Just like your television set, once you pull the cord off the socket everything returns to default setting.

Alpine Ipod/Stereo Error 1 message

my alpine cda 9856 only displays that message when my ipod dies. so your ipod pobably dies then the head unit recharges it enough in the time your resetting it that it can play again. :)
