Question about Pioneer GM-232 Car Audio Amplifier

Cant get the red led light green again

Over christmas break i wired an amp with one sub in my car, worked great for the month i was home. I went back to school in january without my car and came back 3 months later and the subs dont work. The led light is red, I've checked preamp issues, (fuses, pinched wires, ground), even switched the fuses even though they were fine and still have the same problem. Im hopin its not an internal issue with the amp so hopefully someone can help

Re: cant get the red led light green again

Disconnect all input and output cables and check. If the light stays red, it suggests an internal error. If not, proceed by first connecting the Sub wires and checking, then the input RCA's and checking. Remember to switch off the system before connecting/disconnecting, I suggest also removing fuses during this process.

My amp was working good and i didnt use like for two months and know it doesnt work the green light turns on but the red light too of over current and i cant hear nothing i dont know what is it..

if it turns red its a protection light you most likely got the ohms wired wrong on the speakers and the amp is going into protect mode so you dont fry it or the subs

Red light is on and subs won't play all the wires are connected correctly it all of a sudden just stopped working one day idk y

sounds like the amp is in protection mode. try disconnecting the subs and see it the light changes to green. if it does then the subs are your problem. if the light was allways red while it was working then the subs may be disconnected inside the box or have gone bad. try using a diffrent speaker and connect to the amp.

I have a Kicker ZX350.2...Was working for great for over a year. Now it doesn't power the subs. Green & Red LED lights flash. Any idea where to start looking for problem ?

Check the speaker wire first, get another speaker to see if it works (may have blown yours) or get another signal to plug to the speakers tosee if the play. Also check the RCA's and make sure your signal is getting to the amp

My amp stays in protection mode

Does it go into protect in the vehicle if you disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp?

I have a dub 4001 amp

Take it step wise.

Unplug the inputs and outputs from the amp (be sure to mark the wires so you can hook them back up), leaving only the ground, +12, and remote wire hooked up. Now, turn it on. If the amp light goes red, the amp is broken. If it goes green, turn if off, plug in the speakers, then turn it on. if it's red, its a speaker problem, if green, do the same with the inputs, and you'll have your answer.

Amp has Red LED light on.

Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

Amp not working correctly goes into protection

Disconnect the speaker wires from the amplifier and see if it still goes into protection mode. If it still goes into protect with the speakers disconnected, there's a problem with the amp; if not, you may have a blown speaker or a shorted speaker wire.
