Is your stereo sytem amplified? if so then the remote turn on wire may be hooked up to your power antenna turn on wire. The amp needs to be connected to blue w/ white strip.......not solid blue. The solid blue turns off to lower a power antenna when the tuner is not in use. Blue with white always stays on with tuner cd or ipod.

Installed Alpine CDE-121 in May, has worked great up until now. System works, but no sound comes out


Some models of some vehicles have a power amplifier that is separate from the head unit. You did not specify what you have your Alpine installed in but you may find the "no sound" issue involves a separate power amp.

Alpine head unit CDE-9870 will not play sound through speakers of a 2003 pontiac vibe. what could be some issues to cause this?


This generation of Vibe may have the upgraded audio system installed from the factory. In order to get the audio from an aftermarket radio to play through the factory amp, the factory remote turn-on lead must be located. If you are using an adapter harness, it may have the wire installed, just attach the blue/white stripe wire from the Alpine to the blue or blue/white stripe wire on the aftermarket harness adapter.

Alpine cde-9870 non-ipod mp3 player AUX FUNCTION


When you press the SOURCE/( ' ) button and select iPod as the source, make sure you turn on AUX+ so that the external device is used as the source. AUX+ is turned off when you want to use an iPod with this head unit.

I don't know why some people thought to answer your question with an answer based on a different model.

Alpine CDE 9870 Won't Eject Scratched CDs


Sounds like it's overheating. Does this unit have a small fan in the back? If so, does it work, or is the airflow blocked? Also, you can get 'steam' on the disc when coming in or out of the cold with it.

After installing the alpine CDE 9870 car stereo there was no sound... although the car speakers work.Maybe the audio in the stereo?Can thatbe fixed?


In this situation 8 times out of 10 the problem is not with the radio, it's that there are factory amplifiers. Many cars have them, and most require a little work, or an adapter to get going. Tell me the year, make, and model of the car, and perhaps I can give you more info.

How to use MP3 on it


That model has a front-auxillary port on it. 
Just purchase a cable online (http://www.yourcablestore.com/6-Foot-25mm-Stereo-Headphone-Cable-Male-Male_p_76.html) or in Walmart, BestBuy, etc. 
When you get it, hook one end into the stereo and the other end to your MP3 player. 
Set the Aux as the source and press Play on the MP3 player.

I-Pod hook up


I think the red/white RCA plugs on the back of the CDE-7858 are outputs for the sub-woofer -- they won't work for aux inputs like iPod.  According to Alpine dealers, the 7858 will not accept an aux input -- bummer, I had the same desire. R, Jim
