400 Visonik V117SX Problems

I just recently bought this from a friend and I hooked it up right, and i have heavy gauge wires, remote is connected, its getting power because the ground will spark when nicking metal, so its grounding right, but when i start my car neither the green power or the protection light turn on, the fuse is good, and im running two 12" 200 watt woofs, did i do something wrong or was i ripped off, cause it was working for him about a week ago now (he upgraded his system) Thanks in advance

    The Remote is connected, but what does that have to do with the amp its self getting power, or the green light turning on?

ALARM INSTRALL WITHOUT REMOTE START


You need to install the power wire and the ignition wire on the alarm . Most alarms draw power from the thick power wire some have a small power wire and Small ignition wire input that needs to be hooked up also. Only ignition one needs to be hooked up.

Viper 5101 no longer starts


are your brake lights functioning properly? remote starts sometimes use this as a fail safe, or a bent hood pin switch? Also It may need the tach reprogrammed if used. there may be a seperate fuse for the starter.
here is the link to the installation manual: http://www.directeddealers.com/manuals/ig/viper/n4102v_2008_09_web.pdf
and the page regarding this issue: • The remote start will activate, but the starter never engages.
1. Check for voltage on the purple starter wire two seconds after the remote
start becomes active. If there is voltage present, skip to Step 4. If there is
not voltage present, advance to Step 2.
2. Check the 30A fuses.
3. If the gray/black wait-to-start wire is detecting ground upon activation, the
starter will not crank.
4. Make sure the purple starter wire is connected on the starter side of the
optional starter kill/anti-grind relay.
5. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some immobilizer systems will not
allow the vehicle to crank if active.
6. Check connections. The heavy gauge remote start input wires on the
heavy gauge 10-pin connector should have a solid connection. "T-taps"
or "scotch locks" are not recommended for any high current heavy gauge
wiring.
good luck.

How to hook up the wiring on the crunch 520.5 need to know the gage for power


Hello,
  • I would go with some good 8 gauge. More than that for this amp would be overkill and a waste. Many people thing thicker wire is better but that is not the case. To thick of wire to the power feed can draw to much power and send the amp into protect mode. Also to thick of wire with an insufficient amount of power can actual hamper the amps true abilities.
  • Use stranded copper wire not solid copper wire for the best results of conductivity.
  • Make sure to run a 50 amp fuse inline with the power wire right off the battery. Amps surge and it is far easier to replace a $1 fuse than components inside your amp.
  • Your ground is best served running to a bolt in the floorboard. Using the same size, style and quality as your power wire is recommended.
  • Your remote wire will connect to the remote wire running from the back of your deck. The remote wire enables your amp to shut off when your deck is shut off. A simple 16 gauge stranded copper wire will suffice for the remote wire.
  • I recommend hooking the speakers up using one speaker per channel. I don't bridge amps really. If you want more power then buy a bigger amp.
  • The AV cords will go from your deck to your amp right to right and left to left.
  • That's the way to wire your amp.

Regards, Tony

Jensen CD-510K hooking a 200 watt amp to it.Need to know what wires need to use to hook it up


rca cables for audio and a remote wire. just plug the rca cables into the plugs in the back of the deck and the remote wire (i suggest buying a thicker (speaker wire size) gauge wire since it allows you to get more power out of the amp) to the blue remote wire coming from the deck. you will also need an 8 gauge power wire (12 inches to 12 feet depending on where the battery and amp are) and an 8 gauge ground wire (no longer than 24 inches).

I have two amps one for my speakers and the other for my subs it was working fine but recently one of them turned off. I thought was a short circuit and bought a new one but still doesn't work. Its looped...


When running multiple amps you need a relay most of the time for the remote wire off the radio this is because the radio was built to power one not multiples. one 12 volt relay may help .check local car audio store. also when hooking up relay it has to have a 12 volt power wire connected to it usually the center pin on the relay is your connection for the power wire the you connect your remote wire from the radio to the relay then connect each amp independently to the relay. Hope this helps write back if not . and if so leave feedback

My amp does not work


Did you check to see if its grounded well? Try grounding the amp to the battery, also check fuses. I'm not sure how you hooked it up, but I usually connect the amps directly to the battery with a heavy duty fuse. Also try the remote wire, from your cd player to the amp. Thar are usually 2 different remote wires make shure thair hooked up right, if thats all good and the amp power light isnt on then it sounds like your amp is bad.....

Bought amp and cant get it to work


Do you have the remote wire connected to the head unit?

You can also use the power antenna connection from the head unit to provide the remote on signal to the amp.
