It seems that your problem is actally the amp you are trying to use, many have either a switch or pontiameter to allow the speakers you are running either to play mid-range or low-range (sub) take a closer look at your amp that you are using

Stop by your local car stereo shop & see if they sell them, I believe Mac Tools & or Snap on carry's them. Trying to pry the deck out will almost certainly damage the mount bracket thus loosing your secure fit.

The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is mounted in the intake manifold and sends engine temperature information to the ECM. The ECM supplies 5 volts to the coolant temperature sensor circuit. The sensor is a thermistor which changes internal resistance as temperature changes. When the sensor is cold (internal resistance high), the ECM monitors a high signal voltage which it interprets as a cold engine. As the sensor warms (internal resistance low), the ECM monitors a low signal voltage which it interprets as warm engine.


Fig. 1: Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor location-4.3L, 5.0L and 5.7L engines


  1. Remove the ECT sensor from the vehicle.
  2. Immerse the tip of the sensor in container of water.
  3. Connect a digital ohmmeter to the two terminals of the sensor.
  4. Using a calibrated thermometer, compare the resistance of the sensor to the temperature of the water. Refer to the engine coolant sensor temperature vs. resistance illustration.
  5. Repeat the test at two other temperature points, heating or cooling the water as necessary.
  6. If the sensor does not met specification shown in the temperature versus resistance chart, it must be replaced.
  7. The sensor may also be checked in the vehicle. Unplug the sensor and attach a digital ohmmeter to the two terminals of the sensor.
  8. Using a calibrated thermometer, compare the resistance of the sensor to the ambient air temperature.
  9. Repeat the test at two other temperature points, heating or cooling the water as necessary.
  10. If the sensor does not met specification shown in the temperature versus resistance chart, it must be replaced.

If you're running it to the battery post directly its creating a strain-you'll need a power distribution block. Also consider a bigger body ground wire/cable. If this doesn't help, you will need a capacitor.

Most likely cause is heat. The clearances behind the radio are often not sufficient to provde the proper air coolling that the higher power radios need. The heat sinks on the rear of the radio require a certain amount of air flow to dissipate the heat generated under high load conditions. If you add summer heat to the equation, you can have the radio going into thermal cutout to protect it circuity.

How to adjust Dg11100 car amp

If your head unit has an amp gain, turn it up as high as it will go. If it is hooked up to subs, the head unit will say subwoofer output in the menu. Then take a small screwdriver and turn the amp gain on the side of your amp counterclockwise to zero. Turn your freq. up to about a third. Crank your system up, with a song with good bass, and slowly turn your gain up till the bass from the subs sound distorted, and back it back down. If the bass is drowning out the other speakers in your car, then turn the gain down some more. I find it works best if you have your trebble up high, your mid range at a little less than half. And your bass at zero or one. Your amp is cranking up the bass, so let your other speakers handle the rest. This allows it to sound clearly at higher volumes.

There is some adjustment. But you may have something else going on. When the tilt gets old the pivot pins get loose and the holes get egg shaped. If this is what is going on then you might me wasting your time.
