I hooked up the stereo and when i play cds the sound does not come out of door speakers

Are you using an amplifier? If so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire, which is a power antenna remote turn on, in stead of the blue/white wire to turn the amp on. The blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode, turning the amplifier off also.

it sounds like you are using an amplifier. if so, make sure you are using the blue/white wire to turn the amp on instead of the blue wire. the blue wire is antenna remote and turns off when leaving tuner mode. the blue/white wire is amp remote.

Radio memory/presets

you need to have the yellow wire going to a constant power source for the radio to retain memory when the key is off.

My CDA-9847 will no reconize the SIR-ALP1 tunner.

I am in the same situation.  I have had my sir-alp1 for 4 years and it simply stopped being recognized.  I called Alpine and they said they have no connection to this piece, it is made by "directed electronics" and I need to contact them.  A new one is around $120 whereas this one was 79 on sale in 2004.  I still have he installation guide/owner's manual for it and nowhere inside is there a number to call them.

Screen says searching when iPod connected to Alpine CDA-9847

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.

Alpine amp

You could have damaged the speaker, try another speaker or buy a volt meter and check the speaker ohms. You could also set the meter to read A/C voltage and put each lead to the positive and negative speaker output on the amp and see if the amp is outputing any voltage. Hopefully it is just the speaker and not the amp.

No sound to the in car speakers from my alpine cda-9827 cd player

What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go.

Odd Problem

Your amp's remote turn-on wire is connected to the wrong wire at your head unit. Look for a blue/white wire and connect it there.
