Pulsating when acceleration

You do not remove the battery cable to clear data

You use a codes reader or scan tool

What that does is clears all your monitors & most
data that has to be relearned

You need to check out why you got the PO420 Converter

Start by looking at fuel trim,cat temp & make sure the spark
plugs are changed every 3 years & you have no cylinder misfires
or fuel control issues & MAF reading are good for your altitude

Could be you never replaced slow & worn out O2 Sensors
at 100,000 miles

Can't tell if what your describing was there before or after the work your did or is even related to engine performance

Pulsating power drain

1/2 amp is just the computer drain. The rule is if it is not at least a 1 amp drain don't worry about it.

When i plugg in my rca cables to my amplifer in my car it pulsates the sub really bad.

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.

My amps protect light is on and the sub wont work and it sounds like it is pulsating

it sounds like you have a short somewhere in your wiring, i would be checking the wires in this order 1)amp 2)rcas 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.

Legacy audio LA590 car audio amp protecet mode

Is that on all the time or are you saying the light is on? If that light is always on that just means it's protecting your amp. If it's off and not playing bass then your in trouble

I have a pioneer gm-d8400m the amp isnt working

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.

Amp protector light going on and dimming


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.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

1000w Sony Xplode car amp

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.
