I have a Alpine cde 9881 head unit and it has the hook up for an ipod, however i have a Zune not an ipod, i went to the local shop and they gave me a cord that plugs into the ipod port on the back of the unit and has a standard 3.5 mm plug on the other end that i can just plug straight into my headphone jack on my Zune. Now the problem is that i do not know how to access the Auxilliary setting, i was told to look in my manual, but i did not see anything helpful there So if i could just find out how to access the aux setting i will be good to go.
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.

When you press the SOURCE/( ' ) button and select iPod as the source, make sure you turn on AUX+ so that the external device is used as the source. AUX+ is turned off when you want to use an iPod with this head unit.
I don't know why some people thought to answer your question with an answer based on a different model.
You have to run it through the aux input, the usb port will not play an ipod through it as it doesn't have the ipod 2.0 software on it, you can get a ipod connector that plugs into the back of the head unit, and then plugs into your ipod and you can control it from that as well as charge it, but other than that you have to use the aux input. The only thing you can play through the usb port is music on a thumb drive.

Add Alpine's optional "Full Speed" connection cable and you'll be able to use the CDE-9872 to control your iPod. -Crutchfields website
This is compatible with first and second generation iPods touch. fyi- if you have a mini-stereo aux in jack on the deck you can connect a ipod touch compatible mini stereo cable to the earphone jack of your ipod.
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.
