You should check the remote wire bc you will get power to your amps if its not hooked up but you wont get any music!

Re: whats wrong??

Hi, You may want to check all the fuses. The amp power supply line might not be directly connected to the battery but passes thru the ign switch via a fuse, meaning it will only power up with the ign switch and the radio/head turned on. Another wire that you can check is the trigger on supplied by your radio/head unit. this is either blue or yellow color. Last that you can check are your speakers including the wiring. Make sure that bare wires are not touching any metal part of the car or the speaker themselves; finally, check your speakers, make sure that they are not open, shorted or grounded and that they really work. Better check by temporarily installing them in another setup or use a continuity tester which should show a reading of 4 - 8 ohms. Hope this gives you a few ideas. Post back how things are or should you need further information.

My amp was working good and i didnt use like for two months and know it doesnt work the green light turns on but the red light too of over current and i cant hear nothing i dont know what is it..

if it turns red its a protection light you most likely got the ohms wired wrong on the speakers and the amp is going into protect mode so you dont fry it or the subs

Amp dosnt work right

your amp cant handle the impedance of your subs i.e your running a 2ohm sub on a 4ohm amp!

Change the wiring on the sub so instead of running at 2ohm your run at 4

if you need to know how to wire up your sub to run at 4 then take a look at this wiring diagram

take a look at option 2

well really u can take the remote wire from the amp to a kill switch mount it on the dash and then the kill swicth to the fuse box. put it on the fuse that says radio hook the remote wire up to that and remember that when u wrap the wire around the fuse make sure that it stays in place . or u could have a bad ground its one of those though and u dont really have to run a swith or a kill swicth u just go srtight from the amp to the fusebox under the dash let me no if any if this info works.

Dont know whats wrong

You can check the fuses if it has more than one. Or another thing that might be wrong is that you might have to big of a speaker hooked up. Or your power wire might be to small because if its two small then the amp cant get enough power to power a big speaker.

Amp has power and sound at very low settings only

It sounds like you may have a speaker wire shorted to ground. This could trigger the protection circuit. Check all wiring including the area behind the 6x9s to make sure that nothing is shorted to metal/ground. If you can't see any shorts to ground, use an ohm meter to check the wires.

Disconnect the wires from the amp and measure the resistance between the speaker wires and chassis ground. Ideally, they should show infinite resistance. If you read anything other than infinite resistance, trace all wiring to find the short.
