Question about Alpine CDA-9811 CD Player
I have a alpine cda 9811. and was tryingto hook up and ipod to it. i have the external hookup for the back of the reciever. but the ipod will not play throught the reciever. can you help me with this.
Can you give the model number of the interface adapter you're trying to use with your iPod? Is it an iPod control adapter made by Alpine, or just an auxiliary input adapter from Alpine or some other manufacturer? If you're trying to use the iPod as an auxiliary input, you'll need to turn on the Aux function, as described on page 24 of this owner's manual: http://vault.alpine-usa.com/products/documents/OM%20CDA-9811.pdf

Are you sure you are using the audio input wires and not the audio output wires on the back of this radio. there is also an input switch you need to set before the Ipod will work

Niether .... do you know what you have in hand? Both those extras costed someone some cash ... OK here it is: the CDA-9884 has a dedicated input for ipod (a KCE-422i cable is needed and comes with the new CDA-9884 in the box) ... The HD radio unit allows you to recieve new HD radio signals (digital radio, and stations that have it in your area may also have extra music streams like HD TV does). The bt-400 is a bluetooth adapter to use bluetooth enabled devices with such as a cell phone. If your ipod has bluetooth you could used the bt adapter but I suggest the KCE-422i cable instead, and check out the HD radio too, it's pretty cool.

actually, chrysler/dodge has factory Infinity sound systems installed. The nice part about these systems is that you dont have to bypass the amplifiers in order to put a new radio in, but simply power up the amp by hooking up the amp turn on wire at the harness. The alpine should have 2 blue wires coming off of the back, one that is solid, the other with a white stripe. The one that is solid only has 12v when the fm/am radio is on (used for power antenna) but cuts off when other sources are used (cd,aux,ipod). My guesses are, you have the amp wire on the vehicle harness (blue) tied into this wire, instead of the BLUE/WHITE wire on the alpine which has 12v as long as the radio is on. i hope this solves your problem, 9 times out of 10 on a chrysler this is it.
