Sounds like the constant and accessory wires (red and yellow) are wired the wrong way. Test the wire that is connected to the yellow wire with a test light, and if the light doesn't light up with the car turned off you have the wires mixed up.

It can't skip on radio. I would theorize if you have a heavy bass system you either have a loose connection or the faceplate contacts are not good and vibrations are causing a temporary loss in connectuon. The other option would be a speaker that is shorting at a specific volume. The short is causing the internal amp to shut done (until the short is gone) to protect itself. Disconnect all speakers and connect just one until the problem returns. This way you can eliminate which speakers are good. Also make sure the ohms f your speakers are within tolerance of the radio...no lower than 4 ohms each.
are they store bought CDs ? or are they copies? cause some players unless stated will not play MP3 or MP4 cds, or CDRs , CDRW Etc.... check if the Cds are burned copies, and then also check the music layout if copied, using the computer, see if they are mp3 files that should play if they are mp4 then the cd will act blank....hope this helps...
The Alpine has two tigger wires when it turns on. One is an AMP TURN ON wire (blue/white) and a PWR ANT wire (blue) and that wire only comes on when using the radio or an optional HD radio unit ... When it was installed/connected . someone hooked your amp turn on wires for your "full range amps" to the PWR ANT wire. And the sub amp trigger is either hooked correctly to the AMP TURN ON WIRE or somewhere else, it probably shouldn't be... Check it. Amp triggers should all be to the blue/white wire from your alpine. Warning: Alpine trigger wires, are very easy to mess up they supply a very limited amount of power.
all CD players should do this. Who installed the CD player? Because it sounds like the memory wire isn't hooked up right. Does the clock keep the right time? If not your memory wire isn't hooked up right.
You may have Power antenna and amp remote turn on wires switched. Your system may be looking for turn on signal from radio and only gets it when am or fm is on because power antenna wire is hooked up instead of amp turn on signal.
