My amp works but something is wrong with the wiring or something.
Ive had my amp for about a month and it just quit working all a sudden. I tried my amp in my friends car and it works fine. but when i put it in my truck it will sometimes will ficker on off when the truck is cut on. ive took my radio out and checked it out and all my wiring. So what could be the problem??????

Something is def. wrong. did you check the fuses on the amp after the light went out? probly have a bad connection somewhere. check ground wire and power make sure they have a good connection and arent cut up and shorting out.
Is the amp being fed directly from the head unit's RCA preamp outputs or is it being fed by another amp's preamp outputs? Try temporarily wiring up a speaker you know is good in place of the sub and see if anything changes.
You will need to show it to a service technician as it seems the output section has blown so it remains in protect mode. One reason (could be) that the input to the amp was high and may have been clipping for some time before the amp decided it could take it no more
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
ok I thought I anwered this one but first thing to try is disconnect all your speakers and see if the light goes out if it doesnt then your gonna need a schematic and a working know how on solid state amplifiers. first check al the outputs for the speakers for dc If theres dc on an output then that output device is shorted or leaky. Ive have open drivers as well as current control transistors leaky or shorted to that made the protection come on.. Good Luck
