Question about Alpine CDA-9856 CD Player
I have installed the cable from the back of my stereo including the ground and power wire. I plug it into my i-pod and I only have 2 options to choose from with the source button which is radio or CD. How do I get the i-pod option so I can select that one. I think it's within the function button but this button dosen't seem to do anything whether I push it or hold it in, it dosen't do anything. The i-pod charges when it is hooked up so that part works!
If it doesnt auto-detect then you would have to go into the setup screen to switch the ipod option "on" so that the system would know that you have an ipod connected to it

Does you deck have the Ipod Ready function print on it? It might not come with the option. If it does then just take it to a local stereo shop for advice, it should not cost any money. Goodluck.

Tips for a great answer:
Connect each wire yourself if your were unable to obtain a wiring harness to install your car stereo.
Connect the positive wire from each speaker to the positive connector on the back of the stereo first. Then connect the negative wire from each speaker to the negative connector on the back of the stereo. If there is only one wire coming from the speakers, the speakers are grounded at the chassis. In this case you will need to install new speaker wiring.
Connect the ground (-/black) wire of the stereo to a screw or bolt near where the radio is mounted in the dash. Make sure the wire is attached to metal, not plastic or fiberglass.
Connect the 12 constant and ignition power wires (both +/red) to the new stereo. Refer to your stereo's installation manual to make sure these go to the correct places.
