Customer Question

Alpine X008U will stop responding and/or working unless I turn the power off to my Ridgeline and wait... Then turn the engine back on. I may need to do this several times before the Alpine starts working again.

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • perform a RESET;
  • • re-check the wiring particularly for the:
  • - consistency of the always available +12V on the yellow wire; and
  • - presence of switched +12V on the red wire.

All others would be internal to the Alpine.
