    The 2008 Alp 200 motorcycle has no USB port. You have mistakenly installed in the ignition key slot.

SOURCE: Screen says searching when iPod connected to Alpine CDA-9847

Check your ipod to see if it is shuffle mode. Alpine doesn't document this but they have a bug that causes the problem that you describe. If the ipod is in shuffle mode the Alpine gets confused.

SOURCE: newly installed alpine resetting

Chevy stock speakers are 8 ohm. You should change out the stock speakers. Or at least dissconnect the back speakers and see if cd player still overloads and shuts off.

SOURCE: usb device error

The cord might likely the problem. The iDA-X100 will only recognize iPods if you use an original Alpine USB cord. Using any other cable won't work. I had this problem when my Alpine cable fell apart and stopped working. I thought any other cable would work, but that's not the case.

Alpine 9886 with sirius interface


This problem sounds very sirius. Sorry, couldn't resist, but "siriusly", the song alert feature is supposed to be something you select yourself, so it locates a particular song whenever it is played on the service. Do you recall setting this?

Are you using the Alpine KCA-SC100 tuner or another?

I would try resetting the radio too.

Alpine IVA_D900R parking brake bypass


first off i must say this feature is put here by the companies for a reason they dont want to pay millions to the families of people hurt and so the blame gets bumped down to you. so be carefull so you dont have to spend the rest of your life paying for the damage.

when you install the deck you need to get the (pink) wire grounded. this is usually the color of the parking break check on the deck. it is looking for a ground coming from the parking break. usually this can just be bypassed by tieing into the ground on the deck.

Hope this helps

Clarion DXZ385USB will not play from the usb input


It is not compatible. I had the same receiver and mp3 player. according to the Clarion website, an "ERROR 5" is the message for a compatibility problem. You probably got an "ERROR 2"(format problem) when you had the player plugged in and then cycled through the sources(that's how I received the error).

I have since bought an Ipod and the USB input works just fine. Clarion says the deck is MTP compatible, but it will not run a lot of MTP devices. Only Ipods and certain memory sticks. The Creative Zen Vision M is read as an MTP device when it it plugged into anything like a computer, Xbox 360, and the Clarion USB receivers. The Clarion units even attempt to read it as an MPT device, but will not play. It is not an issue with the receiver or the MP3 files. The Creative Vision M is not a compatible device, sorry.

Aipine ida x 100,usb device error


Are you using the original Alpine iPod USB cable? If not, that could be the problem. The iDA-X100 will only read iPods using the Alpine cable. Otherwise, you get a "USB Device Error."

No sound with USB and IPOD Apline IDA-X100


You connected your blue alpine wire (power antenna) to your blue wire (amplifier remote on) on the BMW harness adapter. You need to undo this, amputate your blue alpine wire (because your E36 has no power antenna) and connect the alpine blue wire with white stripe (remote power) to your blue wire on the harness adapter.

When you switch source from the radio, alpine is shutting off your amplifier through the connected power antenna wire. Since you're not listening to the radio anymore, it sees no reason why it should give it power.

Peripheral's Connex2Car adapter to an Alpine CDA-9851


the alpine should recognize it as a "changer" when you select the source; ie: radio, CD, changer. Sounds simple, but have you turned up the volume on the iPod?
The Alpine adapter is $100, but works great, you can totally control all your iPods functions, and it displays all song info on the Alpine decks display.

No audio from cd player


What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go. The same goes if your have an aftermarket amp driving your speakers.
