If you are referring to a warning light on a car, unless you knicked a wire that caused a warning light to come on. It shouldn't matter if you have an aftermarket amp. If you are referring to a warning light on the amp. Make sure that you are not under driving the impedence and not shorting any wires. If you dont have any shorts, then your amplifier is probably done for. Because you might have a short internally. Unless it is just in protect mode. I had a memphis amp that went into protect mode, I set it off to the side for a for a week or so and was bored so i hooked it back up and it worked. It still works and that was about 2 years ago. Good luck.

Why does the Engine Warning light come up but other warning lights like battery, oil pressure etc.don't show up in ignition mode & the car doesn't start?


Sounds like a wire was not re-installed under the hood. When the alternator or battery were replaced, there are several power wires under the hood that attach to the same power terminal. Look for a RED wire with a large round connector, that is just hanging out in the open air. You need to install it back onto the post that it came off of. good luck.

SP OFF mode?


if you turned it on without speakers hooked to it you may have blown the speaker output amps or if the end of the amp remote wire touched a ground you may have burned a trace on the board did you here it play at the pawn shop? or did it just light up? sometimes the people at the pawn shop think if the unit lights up it is working and sometimes they check them is just hook power to them without speakers if so this can blow the speaker output I would take it back to the pawn shop

I have a brand new soundstream xxx 6500d amplifier and when i installed it for the first time protect mode light come on even without rca jacks and speaker wires hooked up. any1 can help?


You need to plug in the RCA and speakers you could blow the amp. The amp is sensing no Input and No output. I would unplug the amp wait around 30 seconds then install the rca and speakers THEN install amp to battery + cable. You should be ok.

The service engine soon light stays on. Auto Zone hooked it up the engine show no problems


It is likely a warning that some major maintenance is coming due; for example, timing belt replacement, catalytic converter reaching end of life (typically 60,000 miles) or other. There is probably a procedure for resetting the warning without actually doing what is required.

Protect light comes on, no power


Hello patrick_h_mi,

You'll also need a remote turn-on source for the amp to operate. Normally, this is a blue or blue/white wire from your head unit, but for test purposes, you just need 12V to the "remote" terminal on the amp. The amp should power up without speaker inputs or speaker connections, but it is not recommended.

Hope this helps.

No power to subs


I think the blue wire is a standby "on" to be hooked to separate or system switch. Without knowing how you have system wired, I can' offer much. A bit of caution; having a thousand watt amp hooked to 6x9 dooms their fate
