Hi, I just installed an Alpine CDA 9855 into my car and works fine, but after a few minutos, less than 3, into CD mode, the radio turn off. A few seconds later turns on again. Seems the thermal proteccion was activated in some way but I don't understand why. I connected the blue/white wire to the amp power so that would not be the problem... Any ideas? regards
Get a capacitor if u are running subs and aftermarket amps. problem solved.
When you say you connected the blue and white wire to the amp power do you mean the remote turn on of the amp and not the terminal/wire marked battery or power? You should not be trying to power your amp with the blue and white wire. This wire is only for sending a signal(+12V) to the amp to turn itself on. the amp should have it own fused wire of appropriate gauge running directly to the batttery. Some more details on the installation would be helpful.
