When you say the amp does not power up, does it do nothing at all when you apply remote power or does it blow the fuse? If it does nothing at all and you are sure your wiring is correct and you have proper voltage to the amp your power supply is fried. If it blows the fuse as soon as you apply remote power you have a shorted output fet. You can use a multimeter to locate the bad fet. Once you find it or them you can clip all 3 legs from them (source, gate, drain) so it or they are no longer connected to the board. Then using a fuse again try and power the amp up. It should then power up fine if the power supply is ok. If you are going to repair it yourself be sure to be thourough. Replace the fets, the gate drivers, and test or replace your emitter resistors. That amp probably uses IRF640 and IRF9640 output fets. Gate drivers are probably 51 OHM and the emitters are 0.1 OHM 1/4 watt **** I always upgrade to a 2 watt metal oxide. You better no what you are doing when removing and replacing the fets from the MESHA board. If you don't then don't do it. You could probably call rockford and order the mesha board with the new fets already soldered on but you will still have to address the gates and emitters if needed. Hope this helps.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

If the voltage is OK, the amp will likely need to be repaired. If that's the case, do you want to repair it yourself? This amp may not be easy to repair. If you are not interested in learning to do this type of work, you should pay to have it repaired. If you want to repair it yourself, I'll try to help you through it.

Screw Size to install electrical cord

they should be what is called a 10x32 screw. you should be able to get these from any hardware store. not at home depot or lowes, but like an ace hardware. they will know what you are talking about.
i would guess that someone lost your original screws. if not then you might be having problems because the screws got stripped out when trying to change the cord or hook up a new one. if that happend, then you will need to replace the nuts also. get them at the hardware store too.
it may not be easy but you will save alot of money if you can do this yourself.

Electric window on my 2003 Rendezvous

Patience, patience, all the years I work on cars, I dreaded door panels the most. No two are the same, and I don't know of a manual to walk you through it. If you know someone who either works in a body shop or knows some that does, a talk with them could help you immensly. A door handle remover and several screw drivers and metric sockets are the tools needed. And Patience.

This is covered by a recall. Your dealer should be able to replace it Free-of-Charge. If they don't know what you are talking about call 1-800-FOR-MERC and talk with them.

DVD runs and periodically stops and freezes, then will restart.

I would wager this is a 'dirty lens' problem.

Try cleaning the lens (remove the cover, and swab at it with a DRY cotton-swab (Q-Tip) and/or hit the lens with some compressed air. (I don't recommend 'cleaning discs' -- take the time to carefully clean the lens manually it generally works better, and if you don't know how to locate the lens, call someone who can help rather than blindly poking around....)

If that doesn't work, you've got a software / hardware issue in the D/A (digital to analog) converter or the region encoding detector (if it has sat unused for a long time, that may also be what is going on here....). Try playing a 'region free' disk to see if the problem persists. If so, try powering off (and unplugging the device) for 24-48 hours, and see if that doesn't fix it. Absent that, you are talking replacing parts which at the cost of this unit makes no sense.

Good luck! //Cheapz
