There are two types of power that feed your amplifier. There is a constant power that connects directly to the battery and there's a remote power that usually connects to the remote power output of your deck. Some decks do not have the remote power output, but they have a power antenna output that works just as well.
The remote power is what enables the amplifier to turn off when the car's power turns off.
Either way, it sounds like you have the remote power input on the amp connected to your constant power source.
That would prevent the light from turning off with the car.
If you don't have a remote power or power antenna output on your deck, I would invest in a new one.
However, it is relatively easy to find a remote and a constant power source in your fuse box.
Purchase a fuse tap for a few cents and connect the remote power input on the amp to a power source in the fuse box that turns on and off with the ignition.
Some of the power sources you can find in your fuse box that go on and off with the ignition may be labeled something similar to the following:
ignition, power windows, radio, accessory, etc.
The constant power sources in your fuse box are the ones that don't power off with the car, such as the dome/interior light, power locks, battery, etc.
I hope that some of this helps out a little.

you need a (loc) line out convertor you can get at best buy or radio shack and the remote wire will need to be tap in at the fuse panel to the radio fuse. so that amp comes on when the car is turned on.

My kenwood amp wont turn on all the way i just hooked it up to my truck. the blue lights and the fan come on but the red light wont come on to power my subs


REMOVE THE RCA INPUTS AND DISCONNECT THE SPEAKERS, THEN POWER THE AMPLIFIER UP WITH THIS NO INPUT, NO SPEAKER LOAD CONDITION. IF IT STILL DOES NOT POWER UP, VERIFY THAT THE POSITIVE AND ESPECIALLY THE GROUND CONNECTIONS, ALONG WITH THE REMOTE CONNECTIONS ARE 100%, THEN TRY AGAIN. IF STILL NOT POWERED UP, MEASURE THE REMOTE WIRE VOLTAGE TO INSURE THAT IT IS NOT LOWER THAN 11 VOLTS. IF YOU CANNOT MEASURE IT, THEN DISCONNECT THE REMOTE LEAD FROM THE AMPLIFIER AND TEMPORARILY INSTALL A JUMPER WIRE FROM THE POSITIVE POWER TERMINAL TO THE AMPS REMOTE TERMINAL WHICH WILL FORCE IT TO TURN ON. IF IS STILL DOES NOT POWER UP, THEN IT WILL HAVE TO BE SERVICED. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

200 watt bridgeable power amp


Check the continuity of the speaker line AT THE AMP. Make sure its not shorted. Also hit up a local audio shop for what is known as a "Z" meter to measure impedance of your speakers and configuration. make sure it is within the spec of the amp. Most nice new amps will check the line before they start to crank out the juice. Start there. Then consult the manufacturer to see if there is any meaning to the particular sequence of blinks to the lights.  Amps are fairly simple devices. the only intelligence they really put in them nowadays is circuity to make sure it wont commit suicide. It checks proper power feeds, clipping of the input and speaker output impedance along with temperature before it will try and crank out tunes.

Pheonix Gold Xenon 600.1 power problem.


Do your speakers move in/out smoothly if you push on them?

Have you tried disconnecting the speaker wires from the amp to see if it would remain on?

Power lights


no that is not normal. That means your amplifier is still getting power. Try connecting your remote wire from your cd player, to an on / off switch (auto parts store) and from the on / off switch to the amplifier. When you turn your car off, turn the switch off and your amp will no longer have power.

Try to take out the lights that you put in yourself, but do it carefully, as you might have bridged out the power connectors that go through to your subs.

My Power Protector Light wont turn Green


switch off the amp then take off all the wires off including the speaker wire and then reconnect the wires on like before the problem is that the amp is on protection and if that dont work then get it repaired another thing is make sure ur amp fuses havent blown.
