Question about Alpine CDA-9813 CD Player
Have a CDA9813 as well, and mine has the same problem. When I turn on the ignition in my vehicle, sometimes the unit works, and sometimes it doesn't, even though all the buttons and display light up as normal. Plus whenever that happens, the CD will not eject. I need to turn the ignition on and off to get it to work. I have not gotten an error message yet.
Initially, it may not be the Alpine CDA9813's fault. It is possible that the electronics/electrical of your vehicle is causing false readings to the logic circuitry of the Alpine unit. This could be as simple as your ignition switch (which could be corrected with a spray of electrical contact cleaner) to loose shielding/grounding in your EFI.
Try hooking up the Acc wire of the Alpine direct to the battery B+. This would in effect make your unit work even if the Ign is OFF. If problem is gone them it is your vehicle's electrical/electronics messing up the Alpine. if problem persist then it is the Alpine unit really in question.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
