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

Re: nothing from amp

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.

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.

Amp Turns off after 30 seconds of song play.

Check your ground and make sure it is grounded to metal in your car with no paint. Also, make sure you are running 4 gauge power wire. Another possible cause could be that the ohm load is too low on the amp. Also, if your car battery drops below 10v it will send the amp into protection.
