SOURCE: auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control

Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).

How do I fit a 3.5mm stereo to ALPINE/JVC Ai-NET Aux car cable adapter to my cd player?

I believe it is the Alpine KCA-121B cable that you are in need of.

Conversely if you have enough skills to mod the plug the top three pins in the AInet plug are L+ common ground R+

How can i get my mp3 player to play threw my radio

There are two ways it can be done:

1. You can buy a FM transmitter which will air your mp3 songs through the airwaves to a certain frequency to the radio. Sound levels are often isn't as good as one would like.

2. There should be a cable that came with the HU which one can connect it directly to the mp3 player if it is an Ipod, if not there should be an aux port in the back or in front of the HU to play the mp3.

Irratic / intermittent power connection, either stationary and/or in motion !!!

loose connection inside radio could be possible, or too many items pulling off that circuit. Ive seen in some radios that have a rotary volume knob wear out and cause intermitten problems in general power and volume areas.

How do you remove an Alpine 7554R from a 1995 mondeo.

The plastic trim was held on, not in the modern way,by a clip in the centre of both sies of the radio/ cassette, which is part circular in shape. This opens up and fits round a pin on the side of the radio, steady pressure with a small screw driver will ease this off, but be carefull not to break the side clipse off, as I think they will be irreplaceable now.I haven't seen a plasic trim held on the same way before. The radio will now slide out of the case as there are no clips as there are on newer alpine models

Hey Guys,

This is the part you need..its an adapter for Alpine stereo..its called the ainet to rca.. then all you need to do is get a stereo jack cable to rca and plug the stereo jack cable in to the ipod and rca's in to the plugs on left side of back of the unit if you are looking at it from behind

Alpine kca-420i when hooking up to alpine iva-d901 screen says no magazine and i pod doesn't power up

  1. Make sure your iPod has a fully charged battery before connecting it to the KCA-420i. When you connect it for the first first with low to no charge left, the receiver will not recognize it.
  2. Check all your AiNet cable connections. These connectors can be finnicky if they are not plugged in ALL the way and can come out when reinstalling the head unit
  3. Make sure your head unit is in Changer mode after verifying the above.
