Head unit connot find ipod

My head unit(cde-9881) and ipod(5th gen. 30Gb w/video) worked fine for a couple of weeks but now head unit searches for ipod forever. Ipod charges while plugged in but head unit just says "SEARCHING". I have tried :updating ipod version1.2.3, resetting head unit and ipod, plugging in other ipod and it works fine, and cleaning connections. What else can I try?

Where do you plug mp3 or ipod connections


Unfortunately your deck does not have any ports for ipod or mp3 players. If you would like to connect such items you need to upgrade. Here is the link that has your deck specifications

I am not a fan of CDE line, you are better off with CDA line.

Alpine cde-9870 non-ipod mp3 player AUX FUNCTION


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.

My CDE-102 will not play CD or iPod It thinks it is playing...I can see it on the head unit display, but no audio output to speakers.


Does the radio work? try selecting the different items via the source button to see if this helps.

Accessing aux port on Alpine CDE 9881


If you happen to have the tool which allows you to remove your head unit from the dash use it. If not go to crutchfield.com and get one it's useful for any audio enthusiast. Once you have the tool pull the head unit out on the back of the unit there is a cable that is black with a blue connector tip. This is what you plug your cable that you got from your audio dealer into. As for making the cable accesible you may have to drill a hole in your dash or run the wire around and out the glovebox which is also common and suggested for your particular car.

I have a CDE-9872 and it wont pick up my ipod touch


Add Alpine's optional "Full Speed" connection cable and you'll be able to use the CDE-9872 to control your iPod. -Crutchfields website

This is compatible with first and second generation iPods touch.
fyi- if you have a mini-stereo aux in jack on the deck you can connect a ipod touch compatible mini stereo cable to the earphone jack of your ipod.
