Question about Alpine CDA-9887 CD Player

2 Answers

Ipod control? How do I use my ipod with my Alpine Stereo? I have what I believe to be a Alpine CDA-9887 unit. I also have an Alpine KCE-422i cable and have connected it to the ipod and stereo. It recognizes the ipod, but doesn't seem to let me control from it. I have to use the cd controls on the stereo itself to change the music. Can I make it so I can just control music from the ipod screen?

You can purchase the KCA-420i and connect it to to the ai-net port behind the headunit. This will allow you to send signal from your ipod to your alpine headunit while still retaining your operating functions to the ipod. Can be purchased for about 10 bucks on ebay.

Sorry to say, U can't. Once U hook up, it places the ipod into aux. mode and can only be controlled by the stereo unit remote for the unit. Very good stereo, that's it's only down fall Alpine designed their stereo to be capabile w/ Ipod. Not the other way around

Are you using the KCE-422i cable included with the unit? The iPod will not work plugged into the USB port with the factory Apple cable. You need to use the silly Alpine cable.

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.

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.

How do I attach the KCE-422i iPod adaptet to my Alpine CDE-9852?


Very easily, just pull the head unit out. Plug the adapter into the round receptacle, run your cable to a convienient place and plug your Ipod in, switch the source to ipod and listen away. Good luck

IPod will not work.


restoring factory settings won't revert the player back to previous ipod software. Check with the alpine website product support and see which ipod software versions are compatible with the car deck you installed. I would think the latest version would be supported. then go to the apple website and download the most recent version of itunes that alpine says is compatible. connect your pod and open itunes. upgrade the pod to that itunes version and try it again with the car deck.
