If this is a new amp then you may have your speaker load wrong (low). If this is a used amp then you may have a blown output section. This is of course assuming that you have a good ground and hot wire connection and wire size. Good luck.

What's the Motorola box under my back seat Chevy trailblazer 02 also I'm hooking a amp to battery where do I connect the amp turn on wire I guess it be remote wire

The motorolla box may be remnants of an old disk changer for the stereo. With an amp your power wire goes into the positive wire that goes to your battery, your ground wire will be connected to some bare metal close to wherever you decide to install the amp, and the blue remote wire will be connected to the remote wire that in on the wiring harness of your aftermarket radio ( I'm sure your not installing an amp with your stock radio). Good luck I hope this helps

How do i fix my Power Acoustik LT-980/2 car amp, it keeps on going into protect mode.

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty . .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

Should the amplifier go into protect mode, simply disconnect all RCA and speaker leads, while keeping +12 volt, power ground and remote leads connected.

1. Now turn the amplifier back on, and if the diagnostic LED lights, the amplifier has an internal fault.

2. If not, plug the RCA cables back, and reset the amplifier. If it goes into diagnostic now, the fault lies in the input, either with bad cables or source unit.

3. If the amplifier seems fine with RCA cables plugged in, connect the speakers, one at a time, and if one of the speakers or its wiring is faulty, it will activate the diagnostic

Well, I have no idea why you would have two capacitors on a 500 watt amp but, did you charge the capacitors? Have you tried the amp without the capacitors? What size power wire are you using?

How to hook up my amp?

first what are u trying to push, second, the amp is 150w rms. that mean constant power, and 250 @ 2 ohms, now you have power, gnd=ground, and remote<- that turns the amp on when you turn on the car, power or the + sign is what gets connected to the battery, then the ground/gnd or - sign is what gets screwed to the metal of the car, then there is the remote this wire gets connected to your radio, or to any accessory fuse, i.e. lighter, radio fuse, or if you have an aftermarket radio, then it gets connected to the blue with white stripe wire, that will be the amp turn on wire.
You will need red wire about 17ft, black wire about 1ft, and 15 to 16 ft of remote wire, or you can just by an amp kit, that will be easier.
now that the amp is done, time to do the speakers;
You have + and - on the amp, and your speakers have the same signs as well, just make sure when you wire the speakers + goes to + and - goes to -. if you need more help call me @ 6314330567

Protect light comes on, no power

Hello patrick_h_mi,

You'll also need a remote turn-on source for the amp to operate. Normally, this is a blue or blue/white wire from your head unit, but for test purposes, you just need 12V to the "remote" terminal on the amp. The amp should power up without speaker inputs or speaker connections, but it is not recommended.

Hope this helps.

I recently installed a amp to my sound system I have a pioneer deck when hooking it up everything works but when I turn it off the car theamp light stays on I check everything I think it is my remote wire.

You are correct!

If you have a volt meter or a test light you can use it to see if you have some voltage on the remote terminal on the amp.

If you do not have either of those items, just disconnect the remote wire and see if the light goes out.

If the light goes out, you have voltage coming from your radio that is keeping the amp turned on, that is normally a problem with the radio. The remote output of the radio may have a shorted transistor in the circuit.

If the light stays on, you have a problem with the amp. It is rare to have an internal electrical problem with an amplifier and the amp still works normal. That is not to say it can not happen, there may be a component that is shorted in the turn-on circuit of the amp that is isolated to the turn on cicuit only, and it keeps the amp on all the time.

This will become a big problem soon if not repaired. If the amp is staying turned on even when the car is off you will drain your car battery rather quickly. Most amplifiers will draw between 1 amp and 2 amps of current with no signal applied, this is called the idle current.

Find out which unit is causing your problem and take it to be repaired, it is most likely an electrical problem that will need good electrical troubleshooting skills to locate.

If you need any more help with this feel free to ask, with the model number of the unit at fault I can even find you some likely suspects to be checked.

Don't forget to give me a "FixYa" if this information turns out to be helpful.

Auto amplifier installation

Does the new deck have a blue wire for remote and a blue/white wire also? The blue one is for a power antenna and shuts of when playing discs or axillary inputs. The blue/white is for power amplifiers and stays on when the deck is on. Also be sure the remote wire that goes to the amp is not pinched and grounded out to the frame of the car. Let me know, and be sure to leave feedback or I don't get paid.
