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).

Hi. On the back of the ISO lead switch the red and the yellow. The VW constant positive (station memory) comes off a different pin to other cars. Therefore when you are switching your engine off you are switching the memory power.

You need a AI Net cable or Speed Cable... It plugs into the back of the radio (looks like a circle with holes), and the other end can have a "Y" plug (headphone jack and iPod flat jack). The headphone jack for sound, the flat jack to charge he iPod while listening. I just bought mine on Crutchfield.com for $29.99. With the discount code: 3A156 you can get standard shipping free. The item # is: 127ICALPA and it's named "PAC iPod Adapter for Alpine".

Are you connecting the ipod through the green that is sticking out the back of the unit? If this is the case this is the amp output. I first hooked my ipod to this and has the same problem you describe. You actually need to purchase this part KCA-121B-Auxiliary-Input-Adapter.html">http://www.crutchfield.com/S-a7wrrbtQT1B/p_500KCA121B/Alpine-KCA-121B-Auxiliary-Input-Adapter.html in order to hook up your ipod up.

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.
