Question about Alpine CDM-7861 CD Player

1 Answer

Alpine CDM-7861 will not work with IPOD M-BUS cable attached.

I bought and hocked up a M-BUS cable for an IPOD. I Disconnected the CD changer from the Alpine CDM-7861, and installed the IPOD cable. There isn't an AUX function on the display. I tried holding this button and that button still with no luck. Will this Alpine turn to an AUX function?

    I also have the alpine cdm 7861 and have hooked up the m-bus cable adapter for my ipod. When it wouldn't work I contacted Alpine tech support and he said that although this unit does not have an AUX function the unit will still play the ipod music through the cable if the pink wire on the back of the head unit is grounded (through a toggle switch) when grounded the unit will display INTERRUPT and ipods music will play through. When ungrounded it goes back to normal radio or CD input. I took the unit out just now however and did not find a PINK wire. Mine has: RED, BLUE, BLUE/WHITE, YELLOW, WHITE, WHITE/BLACK, GRAY, GRAY/BLACK, BLACK, GREEN, GREEN/BLACK and two PURPLE And wouldn't you know it tech support is closed for the next two days now! Anyone else have a PINK wire on a cdm7861 ? Maybe I'm color blind.

I Just Purchased a Cavalier with an Alpine CDM 7861 stereo. no owner manual or slides to remove the slide out head. how do I remove without damaging the stereo?


If you go to an car audio install shop they have tons of leftover slide removal tools. Just ask them for a pair. The nice shops will just give them to you without charging.

Ipod to alpine CDM-9821


Hello andrewbheber,

Your head unit is an Alpine "M-Bus" unit and has a proprietary connector for the AUX input. It requires a special cable from Alpine, the model KCM-123B..

Here's a link to the product. Click on the cable itself to see an image of what the connector on the back of your receiver looks like.

Hope this helps.

Alpine cdm 7861 stuck in pause mode


Check for a "jammed" button. They use a little rubber membrane behind buttons and over time they do wear out. It is possible to push a button on the corner, make it shift enough to jam behind the faceplate & hard to see. Just push the button and see if it pops back like the rest of the buttons on the unit. If it still has a problem, post a comment and I will help you some more. Hope this helps

Want to know if I can use the line-level inputs from the CD Chgr


Your alpine unit is the old "M-BUS" the other adapter you are talking about is an "AI-BUS" adapter. (Hence the model numbers beginning with CD"M" or CD"A" ...)

Look for an Alpine M-Bus to RCA Input adapter.

heres one on eay for less than 10.00 including shipping.

Make Sure the remote wire is connected from the radio to the amp, its normally a blue wire. Here is a picture of what the setup should look like.
