Remote lead voltage

Should I see 12vdc on the blue remote wire from my CDA 7875 while turned on? My AMP will not fire up anymore. I read about 1/3 of a volt.
Is this lead fused from factory?

Thanks
Bob

I would say it is. Did you disconnect the blue lead from the amp then measure the lead for 12v? I just hooked one up for my son and the blue lead was the 12v that turned the Switch Mode Power Supply in (SMPS) the Amp, now, it's only present when you turn the radio on, it's not full time. If all this is done and you don't have 12v on the blue lead, I would look for a in-line fuse close to the radio. Now, if that fuse is open I wouldn't be surprised if the amp is gone also. If it was under 150.00, I would'nt have it repaired, just buy another one. My son was forced to do that because the parts were almost 1/3 the price of the amp, at my cost! Keep in touch.....

Alpine CDA-9885 has no sound to rear speakers when playing a CD. Works OK when in tuner mode?? What up??


Are you running your rear speaker through an amplifier? If so, you are probably using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amp remote turn on). The blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode, thus turning off the amplifier.

Subwoofer works with radio, not with a cd. is this a preference setting? how could i fix this?


Make sure you are using the blue/white wire to turn your amp on. The blue wire is antenna remote turn on and turns off when leaving tuner mode. The blue/white wire is amplifier remote turn on.

I HAVE A PPI PCX 2200 THAT IS NOT GETTING ANY POWER AT ALL I CHECKED ALL FUSES STILL NO POWER


1.verify connections...Make sure your ground wire is grounded to a location on the body where you will sand the paint away to make good metal to metal contact. 2.with a volt meter check for battery voltage on the red wire of the amp as close to the amp as possible.verify that your remote or trigger wire from the radio (blue wire) id connected to the remote terminal of the amp.. turn on key switch, turn on radio and see if amp powers up. if no then verify 12 vdc at the remote terminal of amp, very 12vdc at red power wire. verify ground. If all this is good i would suspect you have a faulty amp.

My alpine cda9885 plays my subs when the tuner setting is on but nothing else, The amp turns off when I switch between the settings and doesn't turn on until on the tuner.


sounds like you have the antenna remote wire (blue) instead of the amp remote wire (blue/white stripe) turning the amp on. the antenna remote turns off when the radio is switched to cd mode.

All wires are hooked up but no lights come on, is


Hi Wex,

Wires being hooked up is fine. With no lights coming on the question becomes one of power.

Ground needs to be grounded.
+12VDC should have +12VDC
Remote should also have +12VDC when the stereo is on.

Check these with a volt meter. Negative lead on the ground terminal, Positive on +12V then Remote.

Both combinations should read +12VDC.

Next check the fuses if any that your amp has. Make sure they aren't blown.

Comment back if this doesn't point you in the right direction.

Need pinout for Alpine CDA-7940 head unit


facing the back of the 7940 the top left corner is pin 16 the top right corner is pin 9. The bottom left is pin 8 and the bottom right is pin 1. Only a few of the 16 pins are used due to this unit only having pre-outs, no internal amplifier on this unit. Pin 1 red (ignition), Pin 2 pink/black (interrupt), Pin 3 orange (Illumination), Pin 8 black (ground), Pin 9 blue (power antenna), Pin 10 blue/white (remote turn on), Pin 16 yellow (battery).

Radio has sound but not the CD player or iPod


Your amp is not turning on - what you should do is connect the "blue/white - remote turn-on lead" to whatever wire you have the "blue - power antenna" output from the Alpine connected to now. That should solve your problem.

How to instal my deck to a amp and sub


you would need rca cables, power wire, ground wire, and remote wire. it is easiest to just go to your local best buy or circuit city stores and buy the whole set in one package. rca's lead from your decks rca output jacks to your amp, remote wire leads from your decks wiring (blue remote wire that leads to your deck itself to give it remote) or any 12 volt source like where your fuses are located and it runs to the amp also, your power wire will lead from your battery to your amp, and your ground will need a good place somewhere in your car and be bolted or screwed to the frame of your car. this is how to intall your deck to your amp. i assume that you already know that wires will have to be under your carpet or kickboards and such however you run them. i think this covers the basics and i hope i have answered your question right, good luck
