Question about Alpine CDA-9885 CD Player
My Alpine cda-9847R stereo keeps displaying 'Error 01' when plugging the ipod in. It plays the song for about 20 seconds then the ipod reverts back to the menu screen and the stereo displays the error message. The only way to clear it is the hold the reset button in on the stereo, which usually works for about a day or so. Any ideas??? i have brand new alpine 9885 with a brand new nano 4g cant listen to 5 songs in a row without getting error 01 message and it will search forever before working again ive reset the ipod and head unit muliple times but have also left it alone for periods of time hoping it would work itself out.
Sorry but the ipod should never "die" when it's plugged in. I own this system and have encountered the same problem. The ipod should be continuously charging if plugged in, therefore it should never run out of juice.
Things I've been told to do f rom Alpine themselves:
-Get latest version of ipod software from itunes
-Plug ipod back into unit (via cord) with car turned off
-hold the center button and play button until ipod resets itself
-take off alpine face
-press the little button behind face to reset unit
I have done this with some success. The problem returned once in a while, however, for some reason after doing the process listed again a few months back, I've not had the error.

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.

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'll need the stereo removal tools that should have come with the stereo, remove the black trim ring, and insert one tool on each side of the stereo, push them in and pull out the stereo. Here's a link to the owner's manual for the stereo which will show everything:
