Try resetting your Ipod follow this:

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Center buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

Hope that helps.........

In case radio unit is not fitted in the orginal car dealers wouldn't help you with code by VIN number, however you can calculate your radio code from radio serial number online here:

Looking for instruction to operate an Alpine MDA-W905JB head unit in a Japanese car I just bought.


Go to the store and buy a mounting kit and wiring harness adapter that are for your car. There are alot to choose from and most are universal and come with instructions. You can get these at wal-mart or best buy. The mounting kit is meant to fill in the empty space left by the new aftermarket radio (your alpine). The alpine will have a metal sleeve around it. take this off and put it in the mounting bracket so it is flush. The sleeve will have little triangle shaped tabs on it. Bend these out so the sleeve cant fall out of the bracket or someone will be able to pull out your radio. Remove your stock radio by pulling off the trim around the radio. This is held on by clips, so be careful. There will be a couple of screws holding in the radio. Remove these and pull the radio out. Behind the radio there will be 1 or 2 wiring harnesses plugged into the radio. Unplug these. Then attach the wiring harness adapters you bought. These plug into the stock harness and have wires at the other end that are labeled. Wire the alpine wiring harness into the harness adapters that you plugged into the stock harness. If you want to you can unplug the harness from the alpine and wire it to the harness adapter before plugging it into the stock harness. The wiring diagram should be on the radio. If not the colors are pretty common.
RED = SWITCHED PWR LEAD (IGNITION)
ORANGE = ILLUMINATION
BLACK = GND
YELLOW = BATTERY LEAD
GREY = FNT SPKR RIGHT(+)
GREY/BLACK STRIPE = FNT SPKR RIGHT(-)
WHITE = FNT SPKR LEFT (+)
WHITE/BLACK STRIPE = FNT SPKR LEFT (-)
VIOLET = REAR SPKR RIGHT (+)
VIOLET/BLACK STRIPE = REAR SPKR RIGHT (-)
GREEN = REAR SPKR LEFT (+)
GREEN/BLACK STRIPE = REAR SPKR LEFT (-)
BLUE = PWR ANTENNA LEAD
BLUE/WHITE STRIPE = REMOTE TURN ON LEAD(FOR SUBWOOFER AMPLIFIER)
There may be RCA jack inputs in the back and these are for the subwoofer amp.
There will be a large black cable in the back and this is the antenna wire. Plug in the antenna wire from the back of the stock radio here. Yu may or may not need an adapter for this depending on the size difference between the wire and the hole it plugs into.
**Please note: if your car has a "premium" sound system that comes stock with an amplifier you will need to attach the power antenna lead from the alpine to the remote turn on lead on the harness adapter. If not when you turn on the radio/cd it will not turn on the stock amplifier and the speakers will not work.
I found this out with my 99 dodge avenger which has an Infinity stock radio. You can pop the trunk and look up at the back dash and see the small amplifier.
Once the radio is wired and the mounting bracket is installed, connect the harness adapter as well as the antenna wire. The new wiring harness adapter makes the wiring a little longer so you may have to stuff them back a little bit. Connect the harness from the alpine back into the back of the radio and slide the head unit into the metal sleeve until you hear a click. Before sucuring the mounting bracket and putting the trim back on it is a good idae to try the radio out so if there is something wrong you dont have to disassemble it again. When you buy the harness and bracket it will say on the packaging "nissan 84-94" or "Honda 83-99" or something similar. Look on the back for a complete list of compatable models.

Hope this was helpful. Please rate, and thanks!

I have an Alpine CDA-9815 head unit installed in a 2002 Dodge Dakota. I currently have a 12" DVC sub bridged at 4 Ohms. My head unit's volume goes up to 35. When i turn in past 24-25, the head unit...


It sounds like the sub woofer amplifier is pulling down the voltage level in the truck when it starts to get really loud. It may be the voltage regulator which is probably part of the alternator, or the alternator is not capable of supplying the needed current for the amplifier. If the voltage level drops below a certain level, the radio will see it as if the battery is disconnected. It requires a voltage level of around at least 10 volts to stay turned on. When an amplifier is playing loud, it draws a lot of current. If the current supply does not increase, it lowers the voltage level to compensate and get the current it needs to play at the level the head unit is pushing it to. As the voltage level goes down, the current increases when the voltage is dropping due to increased demand. You could check this with a voltage meter and monitor the level right at the battery and have somebody turn the volume up on the head unit slowly as you monitor the voltage level. The normal operating voltage of a car while the engine is running is about 14.4 volts. It should not drop much at all, no matter how loud the amplifier is playing. if it does drop, you have a problem with the trucks regulator or alternator.

I hope this helps, if you need more assistance let me know.
