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

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.
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?
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
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).
