What connection do i need to connect my cell phone (droid x) to my car stereo alpine CDE-9881


There is no physical connection to connect any cell phone to that receiver other than an Iphone. The only option you have is to buy an fm modulator that has a 3.5mm headphone plug and plug it in to your phone. Then start playing your media.

Trying to install a CDE-9881 into a 93 Honda Accord, is the mounting sleeve the only hardware used, or is there a mounting bracket also. Stereo will go in dash, but is unstable, and cuts out.


Take your radio unit out of the mounting sleeve and see if you can bend tabs to hold the sleeve more securely to the dash panel... Not the greatest mounts... look on top, bottom and sides...

Accessing aux port on Alpine CDE 9881


If you happen to have the tool which allows you to remove your head unit from the dash use it. If not go to crutchfield.com and get one it's useful for any audio enthusiast. Once you have the tool pull the head unit out on the back of the unit there is a cable that is black with a blue connector tip. This is what you plug your cable that you got from your audio dealer into. As for making the cable accesible you may have to drill a hole in your dash or run the wire around and out the glovebox which is also common and suggested for your particular car.

Alpine 9881 cd will not play sound


If you had to connect the remote amp turn on lead from the headunit to the factory amp turn on lead you may find your problem there.

On many headunits there are 2 blue remote wires 1 for antenna and one for amp turn on. The antenna remote only supplies power when the radio is playing not when playing CD's. If you hooked the antenna wire to the amp trigger then the amps shut down when you play a cd. If that's not it let me know and I will research further.

You must have a faceplate from that exact model, no others will work. You can try to contact Alpine for a replacement. If it is any consolation, someone has a useless faceplate, because it won't work with anything else, either. Try running an ad in your local lost & found column, you just might get lucky, especially if you offer a reward.
