Greenpear190,
 Unfortunately, you have to have a special adapter (actually 2).  One plugs into the Ai-Net port on the back of your receiver.  This is the Alpine KCA-121B adapter.  It provides two female RCA plugs in which you will have to have a 3.5mm plug-to-2 male RCA plug coming out of your iPod to plug into the two female RCA plugs that the Ai-Net adapter offers.  Then you are set to go.  The Alpine adapter can be found at www.crutchfield.com or surely BestBuy could order it if not already in stock.  The 3.5mm plug on the rear of the receiver is actually for a steering-wheel remote control setup, fyi.  The Alpine adapter is required.

You can get a set of phono leads with a jack on just one end?plug that in to the back of the head unit (depending on your pre out options and aux option) then plug it straight in to you ipod.

Hook up an ipod to this stereo


Get the Alpine KCA 420i adapter. I've had it for about 3 years and no problems. You can install the module anywhere and run the wire for the ipod just about anywhere. You can go through all of your ipod folders on the headunit. However, you will find out quickly that it can be a pain using the Alpine headunit interface tiresome on the CDA 9830 model and others similar from a few years back. I don't know if other head units have solved this issue.

Ipod control?


You can purchase the KCA-420i and connect it to to the ai-net port behind the headunit. This will allow you to send signal from your ipod to your alpine headunit while still retaining your operating functions to the ipod. Can be purchased for about 10 bucks on ebay.

Please see Page 19 on how to toggle ON the AUX IN function on the radio

A KCA-121B (alpine bus to RCA) adapter is required.

AI-3NPUT (alpine bus to Female 3.5mm) adapter is required.

There is no alternate INPUT on the rear of this radio - an adapter is required... converting the changer port to an input.

Cd player won't open


Try disconnecting the car battery for a few minutes, the unit may reset when you re-connect the battery. Worth a try.

Playing external sources


you have to switch your decks source to AUX and it should work fine. If not you may have a bum player with a bad input.

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.

How to install an alpine cda 9851


you go to a stereo shop..(walmart autozone etc should also do) buy a mounting kit and a wire harness adapter. The wire colors on the adapter match the wire colors of most aftermarket decks. MAtch the wire colors and connect...make sure to tape wires well as if they touch you rick damage to your deck.. install the mount kit plug in your cd player and slide it in and you are good to go..

Alpine CDA-9851 (turning off and back on)


If someone tried to steal it maybe they Jolted some of the wires behind the harness or the connection into the harness and when you are driving it loses its connectivity. Check all of the connections in the harness and make sure noone of them feel loose. Just as a test try putting it in another car(if applicable) or bench test it, I.e leave it hooked up directly to the battery for a while playing a cd with a small speaker hooked up to a channel( make sure wires dont cross...!!!!!!) and see if you can replicate the issue. Just some thoughts.
