Question about Alpine CDA-9851 CD Player
Hello, I installed a new Alpine IDA X-100 in a 1993 BMW (with adapter harness) The AM and FM works fine, great sound. When I plug in the USB Thumbdrive (MP3 Music installed) and or an IPOD (30 gig), there is no sound. The menu items show up on the Alpine screen, and it shows that the music is playing. Can you help?
You connected your blue alpine wire (power antenna) to your blue wire (amplifier remote on) on the BMW harness adapter. You need to undo this, amputate your blue alpine wire (because your E36 has no power antenna) and connect the alpine blue wire with white stripe (remote power) to your blue wire on the harness adapter.
When you switch source from the radio, alpine is shutting off your amplifier through the connected power antenna wire. Since you're not listening to the radio anymore, it sees no reason why it should give it power.
