When you press the SOURCE/( ' ) button and select iPod as the source, make sure you turn on AUX+ so that the external device is used as the source. AUX+ is turned off when you want to use an iPod with this head unit.

I don't know why some people thought to answer your question with an answer based on a different model.

SOURCE: auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control

Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).

SOURCE: Accessing aux port on Alpine CDE 9881

If you happen to have the tool which allows you to remove your head unit from the dash use it. If not go to crutchfield.com and get one it's useful for any audio enthusiast. Once you have the tool pull the head unit out on the back of the unit there is a cable that is black with a blue connector tip. This is what you plug your cable that you got from your audio dealer into. As for making the cable accesible you may have to drill a hole in your dash or run the wire around and out the glovebox which is also common and suggested for your particular car.

SOURCE: Ok...I have an Alpine CDE-9845

Hello,

You will first need an audio cable that has a 3.5mm male end on both sides of the cable.

You will plug in one end into your mp3 player, and the other end into the 3.5mm audio jack on the front of your cd player. On rare occasions its on the back of the cd player.

Then instead of putting your cd player on the radio, or cd, the other option will be Aux. Start your mp3 player up and you should be able to hear it on your car audio system.

This is the standard setup for running an mp3 player through your car stereo. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Where do you plug mp3 or ipod connections


Unfortunately your deck does not have any ports for ipod or mp3 players. If you would like to connect such items you need to upgrade. Here is the link that has your deck specifications

I am not a fan of CDE line, you are better off with CDA line.

How do you "Set AUX + SETUP to OFF" as it says you should do to connect an iPod to the Alpine CDE-9872 Receiver? Page 17 of Users Manual.


By re-reading the complete User's Manual (which I downloaded for free). The directions on how to set AUX + SETUP to OFF were contained in this manual. I had been looking at the Quick Reference Guide (not the complete Manual) which came with the receiver.

AUX to work


Hello alex_maya21,

The AUX input on your CDE-9845 is on the back of the receiver. To use it, you need a cable with the appropriate connectors on each end. The receiver end needs to be a standard "mini plug" and the device end needs to match the output connector on your mp3 or iPod. There are many commercially available cables that you can plug in and run the device end under the dash to a convenient location. Almost any car audio retailer will have the correct cable or you can order one online from www.crutchfield.com.

Hope this helps.

How to use MP3 on it


That model has a front-auxillary port on it. 
Just purchase a cable online (http://www.yourcablestore.com/6-Foot-25mm-Stereo-Headphone-Cable-Male-Male_p_76.html) or in Walmart, BestBuy, etc. 
When you get it, hook one end into the stereo and the other end to your MP3 player. 
Set the Aux as the source and press Play on the MP3 player.

I have a CDE-9872 and it wont pick up my ipod touch


Add Alpine's optional "Full Speed" connection cable and you'll be able to use the CDE-9872 to control your iPod. -Crutchfields website

This is compatible with first and second generation iPods touch.
fyi- if you have a mini-stereo aux in jack on the deck you can connect a ipod touch compatible mini stereo cable to the earphone jack of your ipod.
