Question about Alpine CDM-7834
I pulled the user manual from your website and have been un-successful installing this into my boat. The boat has power from a 12V battery which passes through an on/off switch before the head unit and then has a ground. I tried connecting the battery lead (yellow) and they remote (blue/white) to the power and then connecting the ground. I cannot get it to turn on. Can you help.
Yes I can help, the blue/white wire isn't meant for that purpose. That wire is meant for an amplifier turn-on. the wire you want to use is the red that is the accessory lead. What I would recommend is finding a constant 12V to hook to the Yellow and hook the switch 12V to the red. This way your radio will retain memory. Or you can connect both the red and yellow to that switch and never turn the switch off. Simply use the on/off button on the radio. Good Luck I hope I could help.
