Wiring an alpine cdm9807 rb to a citreon berlingo van
How do i do it please? Ive earthed it and also connected battery lead to positive on van battery. Buttons are lighting up on car stereo but nothing on main screen. Theres an orange wire; 'illumination', a pink and black wire; 'audio interrupt' and a blue and white wire; 'remote turn on' all no being used, perhaps one of these three is supposed to be connected? can anyone help? Many thanks.

The 'illumination' wire is to hook up to your headlight switch to back-light all buttons when headlights are on. The pink and black audio interrupt I believe is for hands free cellphone communications it will cut out audio when you have a call and have your hands free hooked up through your stereo. The remote turn on is for external amplifiers it provides a small amount of power to to turn on/off external amplifiers. As far as your unit not working I would make sure you have a sufficient ground using a voltmeter and make sure your battery lead is fused and fuse is not blown. You should have a memory lead(maybe yellow) that need constant 12v and a ACC power that needs switched power that is only on with key(usually red). Hope this helps! :)

The black wire will be connected to the body or engine of the van and the red or positive wire is connected to your starter motor. You can also use a 12 volt battery light to check the negative or positive wires. You take the 12 volt battery light and place the negative black wire clip to an earth on the vehicle, then when you touch the tip of the 12 volt battery light onto a positive wire the light will light up. Then you will know which wires are negative or positive sometimes the key has to be on for some wires to work. Cheers
It sounds like a broken earth wire, check the main one from the car battery to the car bosy, or to test it get a thick cable roughly the same as the "black" earth lead from the battery attach it to the car body somewhere and the other red to the battery terminal if the car starts you know it is an earth problem. they do often break off the gearbox on these models, so do check. there will be 3 main earth wires in total
hi from uk check the main lead from battery+positive to the starters solenoid is secure ? also there is a thin wire that also connects to solenoid on a terminal of its own this is the solenoid energizing wire that works starter when key start position is selected if all above is ok? then use a jump lead and connect one end to battery negative post then the other end of lead to a suitable earth point on engine ? then try starting? if it works/starts ? you have a bad earth connection to engine from battery negative lead check the earth lead connection at point on engine is clean/secure ? it usually is secured by bolt at point where engine and transmission connect ? hope this helps?
No i do not have a wiring diagram for this exact Speaker but this speaker is self powered yes?
This blue and white lead is your remote turn on lead, this allows the amplifier to switch on and off with the vehicle, instead of just being on all the time and drain your battery.
This wire should be spliced in to an accesory that turns on and off with the flip of the ignition switch. If you could It would be best to splice it to the radio turn on lead. On your radio, there is a lead that should be labeled remote if it is aftermarket. If it is stock then you have to use a volt meter and back probe a lead until you find one that switches on with the igrnition switch, you should get one with battery voltag(12v or more) and one a ground (.11) and one with battery voltage when on and no voltage when off(this is the one you want to splice in too.
I doubt it is the alarm, but a simple way of checking is to unplug it.. look under drivers dash for an aftermarket box, unplug the connections (after charging battery) and wait till next day.. I think you might have a diff issue (I have installed these for over 10 years and never seen one actually discharge a battery)
