The amp stays on with lights and fan running after car is off?

I got the amp from a friend and I dont have the remote or remote wire, I already have 1 remote for my stereo. Did I forget a remote wire from somewhere else or do I need the remote control to turn power off ???

You must remove the 12v power source from the remote turn-on terminal of the amp to make it switch off. This is generally done by connecting the remote turn-on terminal to the head unit's power antenna or system control terminal. When the head unit is switched off, the amp will go off.

Remote wire doesnt turn off amps. and when driving stereo shuts off and comes back on, or puting truck into drive,reverse,or park,the radio shuts down. not all power the lights stay on and amps stay on i...


it sounds like you either used the wrong wire to connect the ground or the wrong wire to connect to the remote power.

for ground it should go to a clean paint free spot on the body of the car - try using a screw that is already attached to the cars chassis or a metal frame point

for the remote turn on wire try attaching it to the wire for you stereo ( it should be switched properly)

if it is doing what you are saying one of these 2 options should work

good luck!!

if you need more help write back and give me as many specific details as you can

The red light on the front stays on and kills my battery WHY???


Radio is probably still feeding power to amp from remote wire....One fix is to run a toggle switch between remote wire from radio and amp.

I have a pyle 1000w 2 channel amp.just got it last week. last night driving home, stops working. protection light stays on. when i checked it, it was hot. so im assuming the thermal protection kicked on....


keep it in a vented area dont ever cover it position it were nothing will block it.it sounds like it does not have a fan so they sell those fans that you sit your laptop on.they cost about 10 bucks and wire it to your amp remote and ground inputs and it should help it stay cool....

I need to connect my remote wire to a accessory wire but i dont know which one is the accessory wire. I dont have that light tester thing so I cant try it out. I heard you can just tap it with some fuse...


The accessory wire that you are looking for is the one that tells the head unit to turn on when you turn the key in car. If you have an aftermarket deck then the deck has it's own for the amp usually it is blue and in your case may not be connected to anything. If you don't have an aftermarket deck you will need to find a wiring diagram for the car radio harrness and it will be labeled. You dont want to use any random wire because if that wire always has power your amp will stay on and kill battery. You can wire a switch if you choose this method to prevent that from happening. You may also try running a wire from main power of amp to a small fuse (remote uses less than 2A) then to a switch and then back to remote screw of amp.
This website has wiring diagrams but colors dont always match. http://www.the12volt.com/ Good Luck

Hunter Ceiling Fan 25885 remote won't turn off light


Hello,
I have this fan model. The RED is a common wire. Wire it in with all the white wires. Better yet why don't you just bypass the module for the light. You could buy a more up to date Lutron wall switch W/remote control. The Black wire W/White stripe coming from the module is the light control. Cut & cap this with a wire nut. The same wire coming from the fan motor Connect it to your new wall switch. Now heres the tricky part. You have to run a new (Non switched) hot wire to your fan this will connect to the module normally. This is the new power for the fan. The remote that comes with the fan can serve as the On/Off 1,2 & 3 speeds. You now have two remotes. One for the fan the original and one for the light control w/wall switch. The new Lutron model will give you full dimming capability for incondesent bulbs. It is much less noisy when you are dimming the light down.

Sony amp has no power


There should be 3 wires running to the amp. +12v, ground and remote. ensure the remote is connect to the remote of the player or preamp. if the remote aint connected there will be no power on the amp.. if yor radio or player dont have a remote wire, connect the remote wire directly to the battery +12 to test it. If it powers on, then you can run the wire to a spst switch somewhere in the car and from the switch to the amp.

Check the fuese on the amp..

Fan stays on, light turns off


try using a better ground. while new cars are great, they also have more paint and plastic in the works...so finding a good ground for your amp to run off of isnt always easy. you can try running a gbround cable straight to the negative terminal of your battery to test the amp, poor grounding is the most comon cause of amp failure. ps,the fan may be staying on as a protective service, as if your amp loses ground whenpowered up it will keep the cicuit boardfrom heating up on voltage surges.
