Ok so everything seems fine. The wiring harness and everything is hooked up correctly. When i turn key on all i hear is a grinding noise. Like CD is trying to load,but i get no sound no visual no nothing. Possibly thought it might be a bad ground,but with a bad ground it might not even attempt to load. Any help would be appreciated. I dont think its a bad unit. I think something is wrong with the harness or something other . When i took the Alpine headunit out and put the factory back in everything worked just fine. So any help would be greatly appreciated
I have the 9830 and my face plate flickers when the connections get dirty or loose. You almost have to push the face side to side and it comes back on. Its just a connection issue...common. Agreed cortrim1.

Get the Alpine KCA 420i adapter. I've had it for about 3 years and no problems. You can install the module anywhere and run the wire for the ipod just about anywhere. You can go through all of your ipod folders on the headunit. However, you will find out quickly that it can be a pain using the Alpine headunit interface tiresome on the CDA 9830 model and others similar from a few years back. I don't know if other head units have solved this issue.
check all the power connections it could be that the remote wire is hooked up to somthing falty, try hooking it up with the positive power to see if that fixes the problem, useing this method will require you to have to turn off your stereo manually. the power wire is yellow and is usually thicker and the remote or (ignition) wire is red, just wire them both together. the remote wire is usually connected to the positive end of somthing that turns on when the ignition is on like the cigarette lighter. if thats not the problem it could be that its not getting enough power ether because the power wires going to it are to thin or there isn't a good connection. check the voltage at your battery and at your stereo.
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.
