Nothing from amp

Hi i've had this amp for a while and had it unhooked for a year almost and went to hook it back into my mustang today and getting nothing. I'hom not even sure its hooked up correctly. does it matter where those plugs go into the back of the stereo at? other than that i have the hot and ground hooked up along with the blue one. I have the blue one hooked up into the remote in the back of my stereo. NOt sure thats correct. no led unless i unhook the ground then it goes red and buzzes at me. fuzes are good. I have no idea what to look for any help will be appreciated

The RCA "plugs" should be in an OUTPUT of the radio (sometimes they are INPUTS, like for an MP3 player..). Go to Sears or somewhere similar and buy an inexpensive Multimeter. Set it to DC volts and place the black lead on the GND termunal of the amp. With the red lead on the BAT terminal you should read roughly 12 volts always. With the car running and radio on, place the red on the REM terminal and again you should see 12 volts. If not it's the wiring. If the voltage is 12 on both then the amp is likely damaged.

Correct ignition timing 1989 ford mustang 5.0 HO. NO computer. I put this in a 65 tang with 4 barrel carb. and some ''goodies''.

Base timing is 10 degrees I run mine around 15 and it seems to like it but if you want to get the best performance out of it start with around 14 and take it for a drive and floor it and listen for any detonation ( a slight knock ) if nothing move it up 2 degrees and do again and keep doing it once you hear it pinging alittle move it back 3 degrees and thats as good as it gets for power and remember unhook your vacuum line going to your distributor and cap it off when your setting you timing them hook it back up before you test drive it

1996 mustang v6. the radio worked fine earlier

Stock headunnits are picky about the power they get, and when you are taking it to the headunit, it is putting unwanted strain on it. I can help more if I know where you put the fuse too.

Fisher ca 9025 amplifier

The amp is in protect mode. Something in the final stage is defective. This is usually caused by shorted output transistors. This unit is worth getting repaired. Expect a parts cost in the $25-$50 range.
