Hi,  If the amp wasn't turned on when it got wet, and if the inside of the amp is THOROUGHLY dry before you try to turn it back on, it should be fine. Open it up (power DISCONNECTED) and make sure everything is clean and dry before trying it again. 
It will either fire right up, or pop a fuse. If the fuse blows, something happened to it while it was wet, and did some serious damage inside.

Water in car


I suggest taking a garden hose and have someone spray your car while you are inside finding the leek stop the leek first .Take a house fan and an extention cord out to car, let fan blow on wet area until dry. another idea is to use a hair dryer. If you dont stop leek you will have a mold problem in no time. If this was helpful please leave good feedback.

Front right speaker got wet, started cutting out. at the same time the rear right speaker started cutting. switched the rear speakers to opposite channels and this caused the right to work and left to cut....


the speaker getting wet will short it out. Shorting the output on any amp will ruin it. there is a right and left chanel with 2 outputs. Right chanel is damaged.

Cavalier A/C isn't working.,


If you see wet spots on the compressor it would be an indication that the compressor is bad, however buy a can or refrigerant with leak dye in it and see if you can see where the red dye is comming out and that will be your answer. Rather than guessing which one it is check it that way so you will know what it is then I can tell you how much to fix it.

Chrysler Infinity power amp 36670 . Wet and not working


Odds are not good. Water damage to electronics is brutal, and 90% of the time it destroys the equipment beyond repair. But hey if your luck is better than mine, you may be in the lucky 10%.

Have a kenwood kac849 600w amp keep blowing fuse on amp as soon as power is too it power wire got wet and now this can i bypass that fuse some how


It would be very dangerous to bypass a fuse. If it keeps blowing, bypassing the fuse will only create lots of internal damage and maybe a fire as well. The fuse is blowing for a reason, the amplifier is not going to somehow start working because you bypassed the fuse. You also need to stop trying to turn it on, every time it blows the fuse, it keeps stressing the components inside. You have a shorted power supply, probably water damage as well since the power wire got wet.

I repair car amplifiers for a living, and can tell you with all honesty that bypassing the fuse would be a terrible mistake to make, the amplifier would end up being un-fixable with holes burned right into the board.

Please, just take it in for service or get a new amplifier. That is the only sensible thing to do. The amp will not start working bypassing the fuse, it will only start smoking.
