Hello sound to me you may have burnt the main power wire to the body or other metal on the car ..
if i was you i would first check the fused if there not popped trace the wire from the battery to the amp see if you can find a burnt spot on the wire it should have a burnt spot on the ajasent part of the car.. untell you find that wire it will drain your battery "try to disconnect the amp wire from the battery recharge or jump start your car run your car for 20 mins" that should fix your car... www.tonytkokelly@yahoo.com if you have questions

Problems with my sony xm-2100 gtx amp


check your wires and your ground wire it might be touching something causing it to spark and your amp to go on protect mode also check your fuses..also sometimes this works put your db and all your settings on your amp low as it can go sometimes its just to much power n hits like an impact.

I just got a 900 watt amp and I hooked it up right. The V on the front of the amp comes on but not the power light or the protection light. What do I need to do?


You need a multimeter check voltage level at amp on the 12V lead as well as the remote turn on make sure you have somewhere around 12Volts. also try grounding your meter to a different ground then your amp to see if there is a voltage difference maybe bad ground.

Amp Power LED Display blinks red and no sound


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. Does the voltage on either the B+ or remote pulse below ~11 volts when the LED flashes?

Amp not working


What's the problem? It's not unusual to get a spark when you connect power to an amplifier; there are capacitors in the amp that will charge. Is the amplifier not working?
