Re: Car amp power problem
your assumption is wrong
the light blinks for meny diffrent reasons:
1) power is too low - check the battery of the car
2) connections are wrong
3) the AMP is in safe mode
here is the manual of the product:

does the amp light flash with the pulses? if so the amp may be bad, you may have a bad or too small of a ground wire, or the amp may just be pushing too hard. turn the amp power down and see if it takes care of it.
it sounds like you have a short somewhere in your wiring, i would be checking the wires in this order
3)back of sub
if after checking these you still havent found anything, one of your wires carrying a positive current has probably rubbed through to the metal on your car body.
so if you disconnect one set of wires at the amp at a time with the power off and then reconnect power you should be able to work out at least which wire set is at fault.
dont forget to rate me the thumbs up or not.
flashing light could mean a few different things. 1- constant power may not be there. check with a test light or multimeter. should read around 12 volts. it would be a good idea to check all the power and ground leads. make sure u have a good ground. 2- bad sub. im assuming sub since its a monoblock amp. you can meter the subs. make sure the total ohm load is no less than 2 ohms. any lower the amp will go into protect mode. 3- bad amp. power supply may be bad. the newer pioneer amps are full of protection circuits. ive been a professional installer for a shop about 8 years and we sell pioneer. hope it helps.
first thing you want to check is the fuses in the amp, and power wire if applicable. This might cause the protection light to come on. I do assume you are referring to the protection light on the amp itself and not your car.
Post back if you have checked your fuses and have still not solved the problem.
Sounds like the power supply is shutting down because of it sensing a bad output channel. I'm assuming of course that you have checked all your battery, ground, and trigger wires to see if they are OK. Good luck.
