Its not the radio. you have an amplified system in your vehicle and you hooked up the power antenna (blue wire from the radio) and the amp is only energized during AM/FM playback. disconnect the blue wire and connect the blue/white to the car's harness to energize the amp during ipod and cd playback

Radio is screwed.

But try these these steps:

Clean the eye of the head for reading CD. Must open up the radio.

IPod: check for good connections from Ipod to PCB.

Hi there I have alpine cda 9856 cd player and it turns on and does every normal however it won't output and sound on either radio or cd. I have checked for any bad connections and can't seem t


Did you make sure you have no shorted or grounded speakers or speaker wires? Make sure you don't have a bad speaker also. If everything checks out, you may have a bad internal output ic.

Alpine cda 9884 has no sound in cd or ipod mode


actually, chrysler/dodge has factory Infinity sound systems installed. The nice part about these systems is that you dont have to bypass the amplifiers in order to put a new radio in, but simply power up the amp by hooking up the amp turn on wire at the harness. The alpine should have 2 blue wires coming off of the back, one that is solid, the other with a white stripe. The one that is solid only has 12v when the fm/am radio is on (used for power antenna) but cuts off when other sources are used (cd,aux,ipod). My guesses are, you have the amp wire on the vehicle harness (blue) tied into this wire, instead of the BLUE/WHITE wire on the alpine which has 12v as long as the radio is on. i hope this solves your problem, 9 times out of 10 on a chrysler this is it.

Problems with amp or stereo


check out www.installer.com
this site has your stereo's wire diagram.

The amp wires only go to the rear output (rca jacks on back of cd player)
It wont work right if it is connected to the front outputs on the back of cd player

Bass sounds only


That is tricky one. Did you try adjusting the EQ on both the stereo and the amp? Is the Mute turned on because it will act like that? Is both rca jacks plugged in on stereo and amp?

Do you have to run in AUX to get XM Radio? Your receiver and unit sound like its ok. This could be a problem with your provider. Contact your provider and their tech dept can help you organise a solution. Is your radio, XM ready?

Alpine 9885 - no sound with cd's or ipod


have you fixed it yet? if not try this. your car probably has factory amplified speakers. hook up the remote wire AND the power antenna wire to the blue factory amp wire and it should work just fine

Sound Issues


The player has a built in safety device which only allows it to turn up so high. It help to avoid burning out your equip ment. Best way is to put sound on one device 3/4 ways up and then use the other device for adjusting the volume from there.

For sound in one channel; either there is a wire unplugged or not getting a good contact, or the player is set for mono instead of stereo

Works fine through 4 chnl. amp on radio until you switch to cd then rear speakers turn off


You have the amp hooked to the "Antenna turn on" which is the blue wire.... you need to hook it to the "REM" output whis is Blue with a white stripe.

Alpine CDA-9856. Search button for IPod will not bring up menu


I have the same problem with a CDE-9870R and my iPod. I tried my daughter's iPod, and it works. I did not search any further, but it may come from the iPod software version. Mine is more up-to-date than hers (5th generation iPod 1.1.2 2006-06-28 update).
