You would need to purchase an aftermarket devise to send an rf signal to the fm tuner- there are also fm modulators the have a direct connection to to antenna plug on the rear or the radio- your radio does not have any jack for a direct connection or controls for it to operate an ipod or mp3

Alpine cde-9870 non-ipod mp3 player AUX FUNCTION


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.

I want to hard wire (not using any kind of wireless gadget) my ipod in to my car to the Kenwood KDC 334 CD player which is installed. I have pulled the Kenwood unit out and there is no obvious connection,...


The KDC 334 doesn't have any audio input, so there's nowhere to hardwire an iPod or other mp3 player into the unit.

I'm sorry, but the only way to get iPod sound to come through this head unit is with a wireless gadget like the iTip FM adaptor.

I want to connect my ipod to the aux inputs on back of unit


Hello gcd_sun,

The RCA jacks on the back of the Pioneer DEH-1500 are preamp outputs, not inputs. They are to connect an external amplifier for additional speakers or subwoofers.

The output from your iPod is probably "bleeding over" into the receiver detector stage. When the antenna is disconnected, the signal passes into the amp by itself. Connecting the antenna provides enough signal so that both are amplified.

To connect the iPod, you need to purchase a wireless iPod adapter, or a new head unit that includes an "AUX" input or a dedicated adapter for the iPod.

Hope this helps.

Connecting iPod to JVC KD-LH810!?!


Hi, KD-LH810 has no option for external input. Refer to the picture attached. It is only front and rear line outputs. Don't get disappointed. Buy the accessory cable KS-U100 and you are set. This info is from the installation manual.

I have a male ipod connector in my car to attach an ipod to. I do not have an ipod but would like to be able to connect a standard mp3 player to this connect point via a jack plug. Please can you advise if...


If your Sony has female RCA Aux inputs, then you can use that going headphone out of MP3 player to the RCA inputs. You won't be able to view or controll any other player from the head unit except an iPod.

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.
