No, a ground would not make it overheat. Your overdriving the amp, so it goes into thermal shutdown, and when it cools off, it comes back on. You don't have enough ventilation for this amp or theres a idle bias circuit problem. If its a ventilation issue. you could add a small 12 volt muffin fan to the amp. If it's the idle current problem, its going to blow up the outputs device's soon, unless you have this checked out in the shop, under a set of load resistors and a scope.

Overheating, loss of coolant, reservoir not working


Sounds like to me your mechanic is on the right track by having the rad cap changed. If the coolant becomes low again in the near future and there is no visible fluid leak on outside of engine or on floor/ground then your problem is internal and possibly a head gasket.

The Ground wire is hooked up right but the red light wont go off and stay green so the amp will work. It is very frusterating all the cables are the right size its is a 1000 watt amp. I have two 500 watt...


Sounds to me like the amp is going into protection mode. Try placing one sub on the amp with very little gain. One of the biggest reason why this happens is because the subwoofers are wired wrong. What is the brand and model number for your amp?

When the oven is turned on about 10 minutes later a f10 code comes on with a beeping. I've tried upluging from the outlet waiting 1 min. before reappling the power cord. I still get a f10 code


The F10 error code indicates a runaway temperature condition. If your oven is overheating, unplug the power cord for a few minutes. When plugged back in if the oven is still overheating, you will need to have the temp sensor & control checked.

Marshall MB4410 - Dies and comes back to life every few minutes..


Our bassplayer had the same problem with his mb4410. As it turned out, the fan was not working when the amp got hot. It did turn when cold - go figure! Swap the fan for a good quality (Pabst, Sunon) 80mm pc fan with 2-wire connection. Three or four wire fans will not work w/out modding. See your local pc guy and ask for an unregulated, silent 24/7 fans. He will know. Our bassplayer sold the P.O.S. while still in warranty. HTH.

Amp overheats and wont output high volume


It sound like you have a fault on one of the speakers, try disconnecting the speakers and see if still overheats.

What u think


Hello jayPRICAN,

You do not say what kind of speakers you are running on the amp and that can affect how you troubleshoot the problem.

Most often, a wiring problem such as a faulty ground or short in the speaker wires will cause such a problem. Here are the most likely causes for the amp to go into protection.

1) When a speaker wire is shorted or grounded.
2) Overheated.
3) When a ground wire of the receiver/head unit or the amp itself is not properly grounded.
4) When the amp itself malfunctions and a DC is sent to the speaker output.

First check your power, ground and remote turn-on wires. Then disconnect the inputs and speaker wires. If the amp does not power up normally with all the other wires disconnected, the amp itself is defective. If it does power up with everything else disconnected, reconnect the wires one at a time to determine where the problem is located.

Hope this helps.

No sound


I would try it without the slot for the additional amp. However, there is a chance that it is fried. When its powering up I would check the voltages with a multimeter to make sure everything there is in order.
