Hooking up alpine hd radio unit, bt-400, which one do i hook ipod to

I have an alpine cda-9884, an alpine hd radio unit, an alpine bt-400 and an ipod, which one do i hook my ipod up to hd radio unit or bt-400 I own the same equipment stated above, i.e., kce-400bt, the kwe-460e and the kce-433iv cables. The 400-bt plugs into my CDA-9887 HU with the kwe-460e, then the ipod plugs into the 400-bt with the kce-433iv. Whenever I turn the Bluetooth function on (by choosing "ADAPTER" on the "Bluetooth IN" menu, the iPod crashes (HU screen shows "Searching" forever and iPod ceases to show the Alpine logo) and I can't pair any phone with the Bluetooth. Actually, ever since installed, I could never connect a phone to the BT unit, only using it as a passthrough for the iPod, with Bluetooth turned OFF on the HU. I guess this has something to do with the wiring of the equipment parts and/or a power-up order they have to follow, but so far no solution...

SOURCE: hooking up alpine hd radio unit, bt-400, which one do i hook ipod to

Niether .... do you know what you have in hand? Both those extras costed someone some cash ... OK here it is: the CDA-9884 has a dedicated input for ipod (a KCE-422i cable is needed and comes with the new CDA-9884 in the box) ... The HD radio unit allows you to recieve new HD radio signals (digital radio, and stations that have it in your area may also have extra music streams like HD TV does). The bt-400 is a bluetooth adapter to use bluetooth enabled devices with such as a cell phone. If your ipod has bluetooth you could used the bt adapter but I suggest the KCE-422i cable instead, and check out the HD radio too, it's pretty cool.

SOURCE: alpine cda 9884 has no sound in cd or ipod mode

actually, chrysler/dodge has factory Infinity sound systems installed. The nice part about these systems is that you dont have to bypass the amplifiers in order to put a new radio in, but simply power up the amp by hooking up the amp turn on wire at the harness. The alpine should have 2 blue wires coming off of the back, one that is solid, the other with a white stripe. The one that is solid only has 12v when the fm/am radio is on (used for power antenna) but cuts off when other sources are used (cd,aux,ipod). My guesses are, you have the amp wire on the vehicle harness (blue) tied into this wire, instead of the BLUE/WHITE wire on the alpine which has 12v as long as the radio is on. i hope this solves your problem, 9 times out of 10 on a chrysler this is it.

SOURCE: i have a cda 9884

If you have connected the new cable correctly , and you have the system turned OFF... plug the MP3 player in and then turn the system ON ... it should recognise the new equiptment... and allow you to play the MP3 player.

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.

Alpine CDA-9884 poor FM recep.


Check the adapter you hooked up to the stock stereo cable and see if its loose or try a new one to see if the old one does not work. Or it could be that your antenna cable that runs to the outside its all f'ed up.

CDs and Ipod wont play with Alpine CDA-9885


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.
