Try playing with the fuse. wiggle it around and see if it turns off protect mode. if that dont work look at all your wires. your remote wire is really thin. you could of split it open when you were installing it.

Why does my spa 500 amp blow a fuse every time I hook up my 15" lanzar sub to it


Because it's drawing more power than the fuse can handle get a fuse with a higher rating. A 100 app fuse worked great for main power with my setup 760w amp a 15"sub 2 10"subs and a 12" sub. Also my amp had 2 30amp fuses on it one for each channel but I ran everything out of one channel.

What does my protection light come on after hooking everything up


There is something shorting out the amp. What you will need to do is disconect all wires and hook up one at a time. Connect ground, !2 volt and remote see if amp turns on ok. If it does try connecting each speaker seperately to see if either one sends the amp into protect mode. Then connect the rca. See what causes the amp to go into protect mode.

Amp burned out but fuses still good?


this is caused by inproper wiring from the speakers/subs to the amplifier.. an amp will still put out power to subs and speakers when it's wired improperly but it won't last for very long doing it... 6 months is longer than usual....

Amp protector light going on and dimming


Hello,

first thing you want to check is the fuses in the amp, and power wire if applicable. This might cause the protection light to come on. I do assume you are referring to the protection light on the amp itself and not your car.

Post back if you have checked your fuses and have still not solved the problem.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Amp goes into protection


make sure the impedance is right for the amp you're using. If you're using a 4ohm amp and a 2ohm sud that may be the problem. It may be overdriving the amplifer which is bad and can cause damage to the amp. Hope this helps.

Protection light


take the amp out and hookit up to the car battery and let it charge then unplug it do this a couple of times then rehook it to the cars audio system it sounds like your amp may be locked..

also check your speaker wires from amp to speaker box then from the back of the box to the speaker inside the box you may have a short..

thats where i would start.. hope this helps

92 cadillac deville a/c blows fuse


The conector for the a/c compressor comes with a diode that keeps power from returning after the compressor cycles off. Check or replace the connector/and or diode and see if that fixes the problem

I have a 3yr old Rotel Amp RB1080 with RC1070, problem no sound all lights working all fuses good.


This unit is in protect mode. The outputs are disabled to prevent further damage to either the amp or the speakers. If you are not comfortable with electronics, bring this to a servicer. Expect a parts cost in the range of $15-$40 plus the local labor rate.

Sony explode amp for my car


Try disconnecting everything but the power connections. If the protection light still comes on, then there's a problem in the amp. If it goes out, then there's a problem elsewhere. In that case, hook up one speaker cable at a time and power on. If the protection light comes on, then either that speaker is bad, or you've got too many speakers connected to that one amp output. Too many speakers connected together can cause an overload and trigger the protection circuitry, or worse, blow out something out.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!
