How have you connected it to the main loom?
By wires and canbus that was included with headunit and there was 2 wires from headunit (I think its AMP and ANT) which wasin't connected to anything, but I found 2 wires from car which was not connected to anything (other owner did that) near that place so I connected them to AMP and ANT wires because there was no sound and that fixed it. Car has Bose audio system.

A lot of newer vehicles won't power the stereo unless the key is in the MAR position, or, in the case of key cards, the ignition has been switched on by pressing the start button without depressing the brake or clutch.

If you're not getting this, you likely need to swap the power wires around. I'm not 100% sure of OEM colours on Alfa looms, I'm sure someone can confirm, but aftermarket colours are normally red for ignition switched 12v and orange for permanent 12v low current (for memory functions). I'm guessing your Android unit power connections are the reverse of the old head unit.
