Kicker iK501 digital stereo won't turn on

Just recently when I moved my Kicker iK501 into a different room, it wouldn't turn on. I checked the DC power cable, and it shows there is power coming through because there is a green light coming on the adapter (or charger) that plugs into an outlet. Whenever the device is on and working properly, there is a blue ring around the volume control knob. That light will not come on. I usually press the control knob to turn on the speakers, but this time they will not turn on. My concern is that something is wrong with the cable connecting the adapter to the Kicker iK501. Would this be the case? Or is there something else that could resolve this problem? I am not a knowledgable about tech, so I hope you could help me.

SOURCE: Red light on Amplifier

if your amplifier has the internal Kicker card dealie "little computer card on the side that you can change out crossover settings and such," Turn off the vehicle, remove this device and make sure the contacts on the card are clean and free from black soot (showing a spark). clean the contacts with a pencil eraser or something hard but soft... and put the little card back in place, start the car again and see if that helps, I used to lose one speaker every once in a while with the same amp. I ended up replacing the module with a different one from my dealer and it worked fine (still does and it's been in my car 6 years). Check that little module. if this doesnt work, while the car is running and the music is "playing" wiggle the card and see if it works sometimes and not others. Likely is the little module.

SOURCE: Kicker KX150.2 amp problem

How man ohms are your subwoofers, how many are there and how do you have them hooked up? It sounds like to me, you had too low of a load for the amp to handle. However, the amp should have automatically shut down and gone into thermal protection mode. Since it didn't it, it overheated and turned into jelly. I hope you have a warranty! Before you try to return it, be sure you meter the ohms of the subwoofers, or they won't honor the warranty. Let me know! Be sure to leave feedback or I don't get paid.

Considering you just bought it, the amplifier itself is probably not the issue. Small chance it is, but we'll go with that a last resort. Have you hooked it up without any speakers connected? Does the light still come on? Describe all the connections you have made to amp (what came from where, and what terminals it is connected to.)

SOURCE: multible amp wiring

Its always a better idea to use a distribution block when splitting your power source to multiple amplifiers-but you asked if it would work not what a good idea is -so to answer you yes it will work -im not recommending it but sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do

How do I tune my KICKER 08ZX1000? I have the amp running to alpine type r 12 inchs at 2 ohms but I don't know where the bass boost , gain, and crossover knobs should be pointing or what one to turn up...


To start, turn the gains on your amp all the way down. Bass boost should be off (this us used if you listen to your subs at low volume, the boost will heat your amp up quick if you use at high volume). Then turn the volume on your headunit up to 3/4 full. Make sure the filter on your amp is on low pass. The crossover point should be at it's lowest too. With all these in place, you can begin turning up the gain. You will have to decide at what point to move the crossover point. Since there are different styles of music, you will have to listen to where you feel notes are "dropping off" from the music. Adjust the crossover point to your liking, but remember that subs were made to reproduce low frequencies. Hope this helps

check it out with a multimeter ,but i think your jump leads may not be any good and you have just flattened the battery ,but check the big fuses in the power distribution box under the bonnet

My first thought would be: If you repaired an emissions hose, take the car back to Auto Zone (or another parts supplier) and let them tell you what code comes up now. You eliminated one problem, now you have to find another.

First check to see if your'e getting power to the amp by using a test light and touch the main power(12V battery) connector on the amp, test light should come on since it's constant 12v supply. Now turn on the radio and test the remote wire connector on the amp and you should have 12V(test light should come on). Also make sure that you have a good connection with your ground wire, check both connection points to make sure it's good. Now if you have power where your'e suppose to and when your'e suppose to and the amp does not power up, then it may be time for a new amp. Try wiggling the connections at the amp a bit, the solder may be cold/loose.

try testing the amp without speakers plugged in. Run the sub preamp out to the amp that you will drive the subs with, but don't wire up the subs yet. Test for protect mode kicking in.
Yes - unplug the rca ins from the amp. retest.
No - Problem lies within the sub wiring. What is the load on the amp (measure with an ohm meter)? If it is below 4ohms, chances are the amp can't dip that low. Give it more resistance by wiring it differently (series vs. parallel)
