Problem with fuses frying going into amp?

My fuses going into my amp are frying every time i put them in with the ground and power through it. Anytime I try pluging in either the ground, power, or the fuses it sparks badly??? Ive had this problem with an amp before and sent it to kicker and they said nothing was wrong. should i just let it sit???

Remove main battery fuse, and install new fuse into amplifier. then use a capacitor to slowly charge the amplifier. Some advanced installers use lights that go out when all capacitors are fully charged to avoid instant charge & Discharge of internal capacitors. you may have already damaged amplifier. Also check for loose wire strands making contact with amp chassis or other port in terminal strip.

Infinity Basslink. I wired and connected everything and sounded amazing. I removed my center console to construct a box to put the Basslink in. When I was putting the Basslink sub into the box (tight fit)...


I would get a test light and see if the remote line is still working. Otherwise, yes you probably fried it. Doesn't take much in car audio to fry an amp.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. The ignition control module fuse blows when u try to crank the car. I put a higher amp fuse in the place or the fuse, and it has blown 2 control modules. I dont have any...


when you put a bigger amp fuse in something you can melt wires. do not ever do that again. seek pro help ill bet you already smoked something. throwing parts at anything is not how you fix them.

My amp protection will not turn off i tryed almost everything?


i wish i can chat to you live so i can ask you qestions about your amp but to figure out what section of the amp might be fried it could be the power supply section could be the out put section or the in put section but i would try process of elimulation try unplugging your rca jacks and your subs unhook to your amp just the power hook up and try powering it but if the protection light steel comes on then try to remeber the last time your amp was working good and playing your subs was your amp getting hot if so you probaly fried your out put chips and not telling what else next question was you just hooking your amp up in your car and acually touch one of the power wire to the ground on your amp this happen to my friend and fried the power circuit relay chip on the power supply thats all the advice i can give but usually when the protection light comes on and you got every thing hook up right something fried

My (TC4004) mtx amp wont turn on. My fuses isnt blown.I think my amp is fried. Any suggestions?. I was told by a friend that i may have to relace the the two yellow connectors that are on my amp..is this...


If your talking about the speaker connections on the amp than no,make sure the amp is grounded to the vehicle,and make sure your power and rca are connected,if so check all fuses again,your amp may have a fuse,if its not blown your amp is probably fried.

Hello pimprascalz,

Many amps will go into protect mode if one of the speaker wires is shorted or grounded, or if the voice coil(s) are defective. Try disconnecting the speaker wires one at a time and see if the amp still goes into protect upon power up. Likewise, some amps will go into protect if one of the inputs is grounding out. Again, to troubleshoot, disconnect them one at a time and try the amp. Next, make sure that the amp itself is not grounding. Most amps need to be mounted to a nonconductive surface. If the case contacts the frame of the vehicle, it can cause a problem. If the problem is not in the speaker wires or the input cables, the amp case is not contacting the vehicle frame, and you have checked your power, ground and turn-on leads, then the amp itself is probably faulty.

Hope this helps.

I have a kenwood kac-9152d amp i fried it opened it and the inner ground wire was fried in half now it just blows my fuses????


Dang! That's a class D anp! How did you fry it? If you "replaced" the internal ground wire and now it just blows fuses, I would say that the amp is direct shorted at the power supply if the fusesblow instantly when you put the fuses in.

Safe light on??


Most of the time in my experience when that happens the amp usually has a fried circuit . make sure no wires are touching or grounding out. Also make sure both the 12 volt constant and remote both have power still. And a good, short ground is a vital key to a proper audio system.
