Screen says searching when iPod connected to Alpine CDA-9847

Last week my iPod worked fine with the deck (Alpine CDA-9847). Now when I connect the iPod to the radio the radio screen says searching and the Apline screen doesn't display on the iPod. The only thing I have done to troubleshoot is to reset the radio… that didn't work

    I have the same problem. However, before the problem arose, i put in a busted phone charger causing a spark. I checked all my fuses and none were tripped. I am wondering if they are related??

    I have the same problem - it worked fine one day, then next it sisn't. I don't believe the problem is because I have my iPod on shuffle beacuse this is how I used to set it before (when it did work.) Very frustrating!

Check your ipod to see if it is shuffle mode. Alpine doesn't document this but they have a bug that causes the problem that you describe. If the ipod is in shuffle mode the Alpine gets confused.

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.

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.

CDA-9885 Alpine No audio from Ipod - CD Playback not working


Disconnect whatever is attached to the BLUE wire at the back of the Alpine deck. Re-connect it to the BLUE/WHITE wire instead. This should solve your problem.

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.
