It was kinda cold that day and I put in Korn's first CD and was listening to Blind turned it up a little bit and it quit and i've troubleshot all the lines i know i have power at the amp. When i move the ground to a new spot i get lights that come on for just a second. I have a Pyle PLA2680 Red Elite amp. The amp is hooked up to 2 12" Kicker KCVR Bridged.

I agree that It could be one of the other reasons listed here.....
But, I had the same problem with a 1,000 watt Kenwood amplifier and it worked like a boss for the whole two years that I had it and then one day the box that I had my subs in somehow came apart and after I changed out boxes the amp quit working. It came on but it wouldn't work anymore except for when I turned it a certain way or sat it against something.. Anyway it ended up being a loose female port plug on the inside where the auxilary cables plug up.
it could be a couple of things. a speaker could be bad causing the internal amp to shut off. or, the internal amp itself may be bad. i know the new kenwood recievers will say "protect" when something like that happens. then again if youre vehicle has a amp from the factory, the fuse could have blown or the amp could be bad. check all the fuses in you vehicle and see. you may get lucky.
wire from battery(normally red) to 12v+, really skinny wire(normally blue) to remote, black or silver wire from ground to grnd. No you dont need the converter as long as you have your rca from asftermarket cd player to your amp(preferred way). You might have also bridged your amp with your speaker wires which would cause your system to run on a different ohm which would cause the bass to get louder then overheat you amp which would turn it off.
The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.
I had the same problem with mine but i had the 224 version first worked nice just for a small system but i just got this one today and i hooked it up to a small sub box how i had the one before and it just dosent work the other one quit beforhand and i thought it just went bad so i figgerd id buy this one but after about and hr n 1/2 of work to show nothing kinda was a depressing moment, ive gone through my wireing about 4-5 times now and drawn it out 2 times on eveything ive done im just lost, ive even tryed diffrent rca and also tryed a diffrent radio and still nothjing tryed messing aorund with settings still nothing its kinda a bummer
