Question about MTX Thunder 282 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

My 282 is shutting down randomly

I have had a 282 for about 2 1/2 years, I have really liked it. Recently it has gone down hill fast. It started shutting off randomly, and now It only works randomly, I was wondering if maybe the thermal protection/shutdown system is on the fritz, it is not even getting to the point of getting warm

Hows it going well there some things i would like you to check on your vehicle. locate where the pos+ is located on the car and double check its connectivity and verify that the connection is sustainable for the power to the amp. Then again check the negative - on the amp and check to see if its properly grounded and if the metal is rusted or what not that may cause the amp to fade in and out. I had this same issue with the groounding and i fixed it by relocating the ground terminal and it was good to go. I hope this help thanks again. always forward jcbproducts

make sure to sand the metal down to expose the silver then ground it to the car using a self-tapping screw.

My 91 GMC Tracker sometimes won't start and other times starts just fine. It also shuts off randomly.

i daily driver, or just took out of a barn for winter duty.?
context? when did it run right last, 1day, 1week or 1 year.ago.?
sounds Canada , nobody ever posts location, and guess what
canada is not texas. 85F today here. and all week.
fuel antifreeze is just methanol. it works,

stalls, are complex.
so are won't start.
the EGR sticks open on most , its a 50k service point and is never done by most owners. and fails like clockwork.
first use test fuel, does test fuel work , when it wont start.?

did you read the spark plug tips to see if its flooding or starving for fuel.
did you do the fall tuneup. make sure spark is good?
really fast starter,, that is odd.
so your saying it always starts eventually but not always
and when it does run, its with full power on hills, etc?
Id do the 60k tune up on it.
see it here.

if it wont start, try the op guide rule,crank WOT (unflood mode)
wide open throttle, this cuts all fuel injection and clears all floods.
if not flooded and spark is good (tuneup) and new fuel filter.
then try test fuel. on a good engine and good spark engine.
I remove a intake hose, and spray it in there.
and crank , does it start now, for at least the life of the test fuel>

Model # 52sx4d lg randomly shuts down, intervals between time has decreased recently, now wont power up at all

Well I just joined regarding a differant problem with my LG and seen this one.
I had basically the same problem with mine where it was randomly shutting off but would turn on by itself right after.
What the problem with mine was, was a solder joint on the power supply. Tech found 2 bad solder joints, repaired them and works great. This happened about 2 years ago. Hope that helps

When I engage the cruise control is holds speed but rmp surges periodically around 2-300 rpm.

It could be your transmission trying to find the right gear it will jump around on diffrent road surfaces and going up hills/down hills. It is usaully noticable on cruise because it is at a constant speed and your thinking why would it need to shift. Sometimes it doesnt even really shift the gear its so inbetween it just jumps back really fast.

Thank you for your query

From what you are describing it sounds like a intermittent motherboard issue

Please try the following

1) Switch on your Laptop
2) Press F12 or del key or esc to enter bios mode
3) Once in bios mode leave there and see if it shuts down
4) If it does shutdown thne you are having a overheating issue and i belive it will be the heat sink that has gone faulty, you will need to book into a reputable PC shop for repair
5) If it doesnt shut down in this mode then you have a softwqare issue and will need to carry out a full reformat of the laptop

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial as this will help me greatly - Thank you again

We have gone htrough a clutch in 2 years, what's up with that?

Since I have no way off knowing your driving conditions like hills stop and go traffic etc. there is no way really to answer this, tell me about how and where you drive, the number of miles on the clutch, and I will attempt to give you a intelligent answer.
