Question about Alpine CDA-7998 CD Player
I hooked the unit to my car and nothing at all happens, I'm getting power to the unit and all the fuses are good, the face will not even come out. no power
This unit is a "dead head" which means that their are no amplifiers to drive speakers inside of this unit. you need an amplifier to drive the speakers.
Hope that helps...

If you've got 12v constant on the yellow, 12v switched on the red, and chassis ground to black, your fuses are good the radio is powered properly.
When you plug the harness into the back of the radio you should hear the CD transport cycle. That's telling you the radio's getting power. Hit the reset button (pin-hole switch on front panel) and hold the small square open/close button for 2-3 seconds.
If still nothing, the radio needs service. I'd send that model to Alpine in CA for repair.
