Alpine CDA-9855 won't recognize SIR-ALP1

I have an Alpine CDA-9855 and I just bought a SIR-ALP1. I hooked it up, but the head unit won't recognize the Sirius tuner. I have had this same problem with an XM tuner made for Alpine head units. I am thinking that it is the head unit. The SIR-ALP1 has some lights on the inside of it, and they probably indicate what the problem is-if I knew what the patterns meant.

I also had this problem. I had to go through the menu into the setup and then into tuner settings. There should be an option called tuner area. If you set it to area 1 it should start working. For some reason the sirius only works on area one. Hope that solces your problem

it sounds like you have the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) turning on an external amplifier in your rover. the antenna remote wire turns off when you leave tuner mode.

you need to reset the sirius alpine adapter, just remuve the positive (red) from battery terminal under the hood for 2 mins, or find the yellow power wire from the adaptor and disconec for 1 min.

I have my cd changer (alpine) plugged into the input port via ai net cable and I have the output going to the alpine radio (cda 9886) via ai net cable. When I hit the source button everything comes up but...


One thing to verify is that the Ai-Net switch at the bottom of the radio is set to Norm and not the EQ position. And also gray Ai-Net connectors are for audio input and the black Ai-Net connectors are for audio output. It sounds like you have everything connected correctly and at least the Sirius is coming up. And I assume that the CD changer works when connected directly to the reciever so you know that it is working. I would suspect that there might be a problem with the Sirius reciever not allowing the communication signal to connect to the Alpine deck and in that case you would need to get a new reciever. You could check the Alpine radio settings and see if there is something that needs to be changed in order to allow the CD changer to work. If you disconnected the battery connection to the radio then it might have reset the settings to factory default. Otherwise it sounds to me like the problem is with the Sirius reciever.

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.

No sound from my 9855 alpine


There is an option in the unit itself to turn off the internal amplifier. If you push the 'menu' button, then go to the setup/settings menu, and then i believe it was under the 'general settings' tab. there's a option called INT IC or something. Make sure that is turned on.

SIR-ALP1 problems


the only thing left is the head unit but that is not very likely. Go back to where you bought it from and have them give you new tuner box and anttenna. Sorry man But i put these in all day and its almost impossible for the head unit to be the prob

Stays on even if HU (CDA-9833) is off


It is possible that the SIR unit stays powered as long as the red wire is powered, since it is normally connected to a switched source. To test this, disconnect the red wire or move it to a switched source (you could even add a switch on the wire and flip it manually). If the battery stays healthy after that, then the red wire being constantly powered is the problem. Otherwise, it is possible there is a problem with the Ai-NET cable connected to the SIR unit.
