I am a master audio amp repairman i am working on an mean machine mx 1500.1 the RCA inputs wer just worn out on mine,
but your problem is much worse your power supply is gone, all mean machine`s are CLASS X mind you NOT CLASS D basicly all that means is that the audio feads directly into one big power supply unit instead of having both an input and output stage.I recomend you find a web site or audio shop with a phone number
for the autotek corp. and have it sent in..DO NOT WORK YOURSELF

When battery ground is hooked to moter the fuel pump doesnt receive power


That's skimpy info to go on.. What else does not work? The ground or negative wire (usually) should be connected to the car body and the motor both. You cannot count on the ground connection from motor to body. If all else is working suspect the fuel pump, but your question seems to indicate it works if gound is to body(?)

Wont turn on. everything should be connected properly, got new fuses to make sure. It worked fine until i dismounted and disconnected it from the battery. When i reconnected it, no luck it is a Autotek...


Make sure this high powered amp is not mounted directly to the chassis of the car. Mount it to a wooden board and you can screw board into the car. Because some very high powered amps can arc and damage itself.

Next make sure the tubular fuse in the hood is not bad it may look good but internally it got real hot and caused a bad solder connect in the fuse. You can test it with a meter. Measure one side then the other side if the 12 volt is going thru the fuse.

Next step is now you know your amp is getting 12 volts from the car battery but do you know if your amp turn on signal is turning on the amp itself. This is a easy test get a little wire and jump the 12 volt to the amp turn on wire if the amp comes on then you have found your problem. The amp turn on voltage is too weak were ever youve connected the signal. Normally you hook it up to the blue/white wire on the back of the radio first. If it doesnt have one hook up to the blue. Now on some very rare occassions the voltage drops when you put a load to it and is not enough to turn on your amp you can easily see this if the voltage across the blue wire goes below 12volts so hook it up to the red ignition wire so at least when you turn on your radio the red will send 12 volts to the amp to turn it on and will not drop in voltage. You see that wire has to be 12volts when it drops the amp will not turn on. Same with the battery Voltage you have to maintain 12 Volts or higher for the amp to operate.

I bought a hifonics bxi2006d new and doesnt turn on


you should not have any spark from your ground...you may want check and make sure your ground is properly installed. Try wiring the amp without the cap and see if that works.

If the wire is getting hot, the fuse in it is too large and you're in danger of burning your car to the ground.

Generally, if the amp draws excessive current only AFTER remote is applied, the output transistors have failed. If solder has melted, it may have bridged other traces and could cause more extensive damage.

Autotek mean machine 200xi


fuse blown maybe? check the fuse(s) on the amp, and also on your car's dash for audio or acc maybe. And check the bubble on your battery.
