Cda-9885 ipod not searching

I have an alpine cda-9885 connected to an ipod with the latest software update (according to the apple website) and I am unable to search the ipod using the head unit. I can play music and skip songs, but when I press the search button (magnifying glass/escape button) nothing happens. According to the manual this should allow me to search playlists artists etc. I would like to be able to search, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

I had the same problem. I got it resolved by making the MIX OFF. Just press the button number 5 to make the MIX (Random Play)ON/OFF. After the search you can set the MIX to ON. However set the MIX to off before you start any search every time.

How do you hook an ipod up to the CDA-9885 Alpine sterio?


Hello billybob3491,

The best way would be to add the Alpine optional proprietary iPod connection cable. This will give you full control of the iPod from the radio. Your CDA-9885 uses the KCE-422i optional cable.

The cheapest way (with lower quality audio) would be to use a generic FM modulator with a mini-jack input. The Scosche FMMOD01 shown here is sold in numerous stores from $17 - $50. Another downside with this method is that you have no control of the iPod from your head unit. But, hey! It works.

Hope this helps.

CDA-9885 Alpine No audio from Ipod - CD Playback not working


Disconnect whatever is attached to the BLUE wire at the back of the Alpine deck. Re-connect it to the BLUE/WHITE wire instead. This should solve your problem.

IPod will not work.


restoring factory settings won't revert the player back to previous ipod software. Check with the alpine website product support and see which ipod software versions are compatible with the car deck you installed. I would think the latest version would be supported. then go to the apple website and download the most recent version of itunes that alpine says is compatible. connect your pod and open itunes. upgrade the pod to that itunes version and try it again with the car deck.
