My amp was working fine then it quit. At first the light was red, then I removed amp checked all wires hooked back up, now the light is green even with the car off. I checked all the wires. It is hooked up right. I have no idea what is wrong.
Are you shure you not connect the amplifier in a wrong connection ...B+,GND,ACC.....ok...then checkif the speakers wires stay in good condicions, some times when we intalled the spk wires for the border of the doors a few times skrewered too.check if it hapen.
another ....check if the terminal spk is not going at ground whit the chasis

Try disconecting all speakers from the amp, turn it on after and if it stays on red it sounds like it had kicked the bucket. if it stays green start from their and check all of your wires for shorts (speaker wires) again. hope this helps...
perhaps you are pushing the amp to hard check that the gain control knob is not turned all the way up. This will cause the amp to overheat. If not that check all of the wiring to the amp for a possible short.
that means you probably have a shorted speaker wire, a bad speaker or the amp itself is bad, try disconnecting the speakers one at a time and see if it turns on or not. if the red light stays on with no speakers hooked up it means the amp is bad
You have an internal solder jump it must be repaired by authorized dealer or replace the amp at wholesale cost at www.godspeedaudioheaven.com either way its gonna cost you also try unplugging the RCA's aswell as speakers if still the same repair or change it!
The red light is normal and indicates the amp is powered up. Check your signal wires (RCA patch cords?) and speaker wires. Need more info to be of more help. What receiver are you using? How is it connected to the amp?
just solved a similar problem on my car i
bought a Cd/dvd player for my 2000 concord lxi i hooked it up and
hooked a rear-view camera and it worked perfect but wen i turned the
headlights on the cd player shuts of so i disconnected the orenge wire
that came out of my cd player from the orange on the aftermarket harness
then grounded the ping wire (rear con wire) it worked fine but i
couldn't see any footage from the camera for that i bought a long red power wire
and hooked it to the red camera power wire that hooked from camera to
reverse light and took the other end of the new wire i bought and hooked
it to the orange wire that came out of the cd player now every thing
works fine. you probably dont have the right power to run both cd and head lights
thats why you need constant power to run both just hook up an extra
wire between a positive wire to the orange dimmer wire its simple;
ground to ground (black)
12+ positive to 12+ positive (red)
and an extra wire (usually a red 18 guage wire bought mine at walmart)
to the dimmer wire from the back of the cd player (orange)
It sounds like the output transistors have shorted. This is VERY common. If you want to try to troubleshoot the problem, I'd need to see photos of the inside of the amp. You'll need a multimeter to check the transistors.
Before opening the amp, remove it from the power source.
Since the resolution is severely limited here, send the photos to me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you're going to send multiple photos, please zip them and send one file.
