Question about Alpine iDA-X200 Car CD/ MP3 Player
My Ipod nano (2nd gen) worked just fine when I first had the stereo installed and was fine for 3 weeks. All of a sudden, when I plug in the same Ipod nano, it shows as no USB device. Thus, I cannot use my Ipod in the car anymore, pretty much rendering my stereo useless. I live in a poor radio reception area. I don't know what happened. I don't see how any cords or wires could have come loose, but I can think of no other explination for this. Please help!

So it is powering up? On your actual deck will be a picture of the schematics of the wiring. With the system powered up, assuming you taped up the power wires, strip the front left wires coming from the deck and use them as your tester. You now know forsure they are for the front left so as you go through your cars audio wires you will find which wires are for which speakers around your car. Label them as you test them. Hope that helps.

You could get a stereo installation kit for your year, make & model, that comes with a pigtail plug that would plug right into the existing harness plug and prevent you from having to hack up your original wiring harness.

The best thing you can do for your situation is to get a vehicle wiring diagram for your particular vehicle. This can be done at the dealer or by buying a vehicle manual at the autoparts store that has the wiring diagrams in it. You can then see the wiring color coding. They also make a factory plug pigtail that you can plug into your existing radio harness and then wire it correctly to the new radio. The new radio should have the wiring layout included with its documentation, and some radios also have small marking tabs on the wire ends to tell you what they are for. Good Luck, RAC

All you can really do is use a CD Player cleaner *one that uses fluid* run it thru a couple times and try a disc again. Clean your CD's with liquid car polish an a microfibre towel, it works wonders for new and old CD's. If it still skips, It needs to be pulled for repair. They just replace the transport, usually runs between 100-150 depending on the service center. Hope this helps.
