Question about Alpine CDE-102Ri CD Reciever, iPod and USB Controller Car CD/ MP3 Player

Trying to install aftermarket cd player, but it won't power on

I have a 1993 Honda Civic, and it has an old audiovox cassette deck in it that works, but I am trying to install a aftermarket cd player, an alpine CDE-102 to be exact, so I bought the harness to be able to connect it to the wiring, but when I plug in the alpine it won't power on, I have now done this with two cd players, so I know it is not the player being broken, but when I plug the old deck in it powers on and works, so I know it is getting power, does anyone have any suggestions?

You could get a stereo installation kit for your year, make & model, that comes with a pigtail plug that would plug right into the existing harness plug and prevent you from having to hack up your original wiring harness.

If not....

Car Radio memory Constant 12v+ Wire: Orange
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: The radio harness does not provide a switched power source. Run a wire to the fusebox for switched power.
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black/White
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Gray
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Pink
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: N/A
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Dark Green
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Blue
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Light Blue

Good luck

SOURCE: Alpine CDE-102 w/usb port: will not

Hello desoren,

The receiver may not be set to recognize MP3 files.

Press and hold "sound setup" until the unit enters setup mode. Rotate the volume knob to "play mode" and press "enter". Check that the setting is CD/MP3 (not CD/MA), or rotate the volume knob to change the setting to CD/MP3 and press enter again. Press and hold "sound setup" again until the unit exits sound setup.

If the files are still not recognized, I'd try using a different USB drive, a different computer to write the MP3's, and/or a different application to download or rip the original music content.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: i am getting a DC error on my alpine cde-102 head

Hello christo12385,

The DC error is most likely caused by a shorted or grounded speaker wire. Check all speaker wires, correct the problem, and then go into the sound setup settings and reset the POWER IC to ON.

Hope this helps.

You might want to check all of the fuses in the car. There should be a fuse box in the engine compartment and another under the dash somewhere.

Hi, I recently purchased a new Stereo deck and I like to remove the old Alpine CDE-7827 deck. My car is a 1995 Ford Thunderbird.


The original wires in the 95' thunderbirds are a pain, trying to figure out how to take out factory stereo and replace with aftermarket Sony cd player, have no clue because the wires don't match up, some do and they will load and unload discs but won't power up any suggestions...?!?

I can install my new cd player in my 1993 honda civic because thay have two diffrent colored wirings


If you are talking about an aftermarket deck, go to a stereo shop and buy the wiring adapter. Follow the easy to use directions and it turns into a very easy wiring job. I've installed several stereos over the last few years and the adapters are the only way to go.

Is your rear window tinted? If so the metal in the tint is causing your reception problem.

1997 Honda Civic EX Keyless entry programming


If you still have the factory radio, there is a way to split the power wire for the factory radio to the aftermarket radio. All you will need are the power and ground for your aftermarket radio, so the rest of the wires should be untouched on the plug for the factory radio. You can simply re-install the radio within the dash and retain the keyless entry as well as restoring your dome light function. Here's a PDF of some instructions. If you did not keep the radio, I would suggest looking online or ins ome junk yards, because it is needed. www.installdr.com/InstallDocs/Honda/PDF/466013.pdf

Honda Civic CD and Cassette player


sounds like a CD read error, try cleaning the laser lens with a CD clearner kit, they are cheap, if it still kicks out the CD then you will need to have it repaired or replaced.
