Re: light stays red

I do belive this amplifer has a red light when it is on... I know my Kenwood does. I suggest checking all your wireing between your amp and your speakers, check the impediance between your positive and negative terminals on your leads to the subs.

There's a flashing green and red light when my car is on and the sub attached to the amp is making a heartbeat like noise when the light goes green and then the light goes red right away. everything is...

Check the wires for short circuiting at the car body or speaker wires. Triple check really everything.
Make sure the connectors are 100% connected to the wires. There maybe some resitance if the amp isn't getting enough power from the battery.

The Ground wire is hooked up right but the red light wont go off and stay green so the amp will work. It is very frusterating all the cables are the right size its is a 1000 watt amp. I have two 500 watt...

Sounds to me like the amp is going into protection mode. Try placing one sub on the amp with very little gain. One of the biggest reason why this happens is because the subwoofers are wired wrong. What is the brand and model number for your amp?

The red light on the amp is staying on and the green light isnt coming on

its going into protect mode, meaning there is either a short in one of the transistors
or one of the jumper bars is loose, needs to be re-sodered. Easy fix.

A red light appears within 30 sec. of being on. the more i tune it down the longer the green light will stay on. when its completely tuned down the light will stay green

yes you have a internal fault of the amp. the circuit that puts it into safe mode is bad and that is a very small chip on the board know as a op amp. needs to be repaired.

Red light

something is shorted in the circuit, or your subs. unhook the subs first and try it again, if it is still in protect then it is most likely the output transistors.
