Cda 9883 and cda 9885 2008 model no song issues

I purchase 6 alpine units over the last three years  but i don t think i will ever buy one more  because alpine support is really bad my new stereos 2 units i purchase for my kids cars show no song because alpine engineers fail to test and communicate with apple the manufacture of ipods i install my new unit them my son upgrade his 5th generation ipod software  them after that it quit reading the ipod now it show no song i try talking to apple about reverting the software they said its not possible now alpine blames apple for the software upgrade witch it was release dec 07 i purchase the stereo 3 weeks before even know it was 08 model alpine advertise it ipod compatible witch is not plug and play there s no warning about what ipod software is compatible so i believe alpine may end up in litigation regarding this issue like apple did with their batteries early years if you can help it will be greatly appreciated since the manufacture is lost alpine thank you again but i feel a responsibility to warn people so they don t wasted there money on something that does not do what its advertise for

My ipods fuction fine with my Alpine CDA-9885 ... have you tried pressing the display button on the Alpine? The KCE-422i cable takes quite a beating ... You might check the cables.

How do i get my Alpine CDA 9885 head unit out to fit a sub???


Remove the face, and trimring plastic.
There are slots on either side that you put the Alpine unlocking keys into (came with your headunit new) then slide the chassis out.
If you don't have keys - you can use a small allen wrench - or buy them at best buy etc.
A local alpine dealer will probably let you borrow his keys as a good business practice.

Hook up an ipod to this stereo


Get the Alpine KCA 420i adapter. I've had it for about 3 years and no problems. You can install the module anywhere and run the wire for the ipod just about anywhere. You can go through all of your ipod folders on the headunit. However, you will find out quickly that it can be a pain using the Alpine headunit interface tiresome on the CDA 9830 model and others similar from a few years back. I don't know if other head units have solved this issue.
