    not real smart when it comes to this but i'll give it a shot.two subs 10" jl w3's, also have pos. and neg. at 4 gauge, remote wire to head unit... prob 20 gauge? both speakers are wired together and was bridged to two ohms. amp worked great in another car. switched to this one and no longer worked. replaced the head unit and still does not work. continue to run cheaper junk amp for power to subs and it works great. one thing though, the speakers sound like they may be blown now. could this affect the jl amp that is shutting off?

Why does my1992 Toyota Previa keep shutting off & stalling?


Possibly, but you could also suspect the computer-controlled idle valve or motor, the throttle position sensor, or a weak fuel pump.

It might help you to check for any trouble codes in the computer. The check engine light is used to flash out 2 digit trouble codes; here's how to do so, with a list and description of codes:

When I turn it on it shuts off amp


Pete,

This sounds like a wiring issue. I don't know what you're turning on that it causing the amp to shut off - because you didn't include that info. Double check the installation instructions of both the amp and the other device. Make sure you're connecting to valid points in the car's wiring. If you're still having trouble, please provide the year, make and model car and the make and model of the amp and the other device. Has either worked in the car alone before - or did you install them both at the same time? Are these devices new, or used. Did you see them work correctly before? Thanks!

Vostro 200 PC freezes on Dell Start up page & won't turn on


If you have windows 7 installed, then see if you can boot to the DVD and run a repair on the OS. You also may want to run a diagnostics on the system if you can get to the F12 menu

I have been having trouble with my car stereo system


First reinspect your power and ground connections, vibration may have loosened them.

Then be sure that amp location has proper ventilation, (overheating will cause shout down)
A 2400 in a closed space will definitely need exhaust fans to help circulate cool air around the amp.

The cap should be mounted close to the amp and properly charged before use. It is connected in-line with the main power lead paying close attention to the power in and power out terminals.

Power in = from the battery
Power out = to the amp

Good luck

Shutdown


There is either a thermal problem in the amp itself (a bad part) causing it to shut down after a while, or the amp is overheating due to a load problem. This may be due to wiring issues or a bad speaker. Try running the amp into a set of test speakers connected directly to the outputs with all the other speaker wiring disconnected. If the amp still shuts down you'll know the problem is in the amp itself. If it runs OK, you'll have isolated the trouble to the wiring or speakers and can test that portion.

Amp shuts off


check your remote wire and check your power and ground, clean all connections with a contact cleaner/rejuvinator (ridox/deoxit).. many times the thin remote wire will develop breaks or conductivity issues over time, i have replaced many of these just in the last few months.

to make sure this is the problem, remove the remote wire and temporarily jump the power wire to power and remote, the amp will always be on at this point, but it should help you diagnose whether the remote wire is the problem or if it is an amp or cabling issue.

hope this helps,

Power Problem, LED Lights up and then shuts off


Do you have the switch or activate wire on the new amp. to the right hookup? If you do, then theres a problem with the amp and if your not a tech these can be a difficult thing to trouble shoot. Take back the amp or seek out a pro to test it on a bench. Good Luck
