Question about Alpine CDA-9883 CD Player

1 Answer

Radio has sound but not the CD player or iPod

I have a 1993 BMW 525i and I installed a Alpine CDA-9883 CD player with ipod control adapter. The radio plays just fine with sound and the CD player and the iPod are playing, but no sound. My car does have a Blaupunkt hifi amp as part of the original equipment. Could the amp be the cause of the problem or is there something I'm doing wrong. Thanks in advance.

    That is exactly what I did even before I read your solution. It was just by trial and error since I didn't have a power antenna. That fixed the problem. Thanks.

Your amp is not turning on - what you should do is connect the "blue/white - remote turn-on lead" to whatever wire you have the "blue - power antenna" output from the Alpine connected to now. That should solve your problem.

Alpine CDA 9827 using aux mode with ipod shuffle via rca inputs


Unfortunately, the rca outputs are to control an amplifier or crossover. They do make an ipod adapter for that radio, which allows you to control the ipod through the radio. Best Buy or any Alpine dealer should carry something for around $25.

Hooking up alpine hd radio unit, bt-400, which one do i hook ipod to


Niether .... do you know what you have in hand? Both those extras costed someone some cash ... OK here it is: the CDA-9884 has a dedicated input for ipod (a KCE-422i cable is needed and comes with the new CDA-9884 in the box) ... The HD radio unit allows you to recieve new HD radio signals (digital radio, and stations that have it in your area may also have extra music streams like HD TV does). The bt-400 is a bluetooth adapter to use bluetooth enabled devices with such as a cell phone. If your ipod has bluetooth you could used the bt adapter but I suggest the KCE-422i cable instead, and check out the HD radio too, it's pretty cool.

Where do I plug in the ipod adapter to Alpine


The back.

There should either be a proprietary CD changer plug you can plug an ipod adapter into, or you will need to connect an adapter inline with your antenna. Depends on what equipment you have.

No sound with USB and IPOD Apline IDA-X100


You connected your blue alpine wire (power antenna) to your blue wire (amplifier remote on) on the BMW harness adapter. You need to undo this, amputate your blue alpine wire (because your E36 has no power antenna) and connect the alpine blue wire with white stripe (remote power) to your blue wire on the harness adapter.

When you switch source from the radio, alpine is shutting off your amplifier through the connected power antenna wire. Since you're not listening to the radio anymore, it sees no reason why it should give it power.

Peripheral's Connex2Car adapter to an Alpine CDA-9851


the alpine should recognize it as a "changer" when you select the source; ie: radio, CD, changer. Sounds simple, but have you turned up the volume on the iPod?
The Alpine adapter is $100, but works great, you can totally control all your iPods functions, and it displays all song info on the Alpine decks display.

IPod will not work.


restoring factory settings won't revert the player back to previous ipod software. Check with the alpine website product support and see which ipod software versions are compatible with the car deck you installed. I would think the latest version would be supported. then go to the apple website and download the most recent version of itunes that alpine says is compatible. connect your pod and open itunes. upgrade the pod to that itunes version and try it again with the car deck.
