The RCA cables are for leads from your deck to your amp. Assuming you have an aftermarket deck, pull it out of the dash and look at the back. There should be a red out put and a white output for your cables to plug into. They're sometimes labeled left and right to help you make sure you hook up the amp right. If not, just be sure to match them up between the deck and the amp. If you have the stock deck in there, it's unlikely that you'll have RCA outputs, as most stock decks I've seen do not. As for the protection light being on, your amp is most likely shorting to ground somewhere. Be sure you don't have it screwed right to any metal parts of the car, as this can cause problems. Most amps have a section in the manual warning against this and the problems it can cause. Some amp manufacturers don't say anything about that or say that it will be safe, but, as a rule, I always just play it safe and mount it either to my sub box or on a piece of plywood or something that is secured in the car. Also, make sure that the in-line fuse on your power lead isn't blown, and most amps have one or more fuses on the side of them, so check those, too. If none of these things are wrong, then it might be an internal problem and I can't really help you with technical stuff. Hope this helps. Please leave feedback, too.

Your amp could be in protection mode! Sometimes turning up to high or wires touching will put in protection mode! It will have to be unplugged for a day or two to drain all power out of the memory. Leave accessorie/ignition wire hooked up, just not power and ground wiring. It should reset itself.

I have a pioneer gm-d8400m the amp isnt working


flashing light could mean a few different things. 1- constant power may not be there. check with a test light or multimeter. should read around 12 volts. it would be a good idea to check all the power and ground leads. make sure u have a good ground. 2- bad sub. im assuming sub since its a monoblock amp. you can meter the subs. make sure the total ohm load is no less than 2 ohms. any lower the amp will go into protect mode. 3- bad amp. power supply may be bad. the newer pioneer amps are full of protection circuits. ive been a professional installer for a shop about 8 years and we sell pioneer. hope it helps.

Protect light comes on, no power


Hello patrick_h_mi,

You'll also need a remote turn-on source for the amp to operate. Normally, this is a blue or blue/white wire from your head unit, but for test purposes, you just need 12V to the "remote" terminal on the amp. The amp should power up without speaker inputs or speaker connections, but it is not recommended.

Hope this helps.

RED Port light on AMP?


are you sure its not PROT?
the amplifier is protecting itself from fire because of something.
Disconnect the subs. and turn on.
if it comes on normally, the subs are at fault and will need attention. If the light still stays on, you hafe probably blown an output on the amplifier and it will need repair.

Protection light


Hello. First, disconnect all of the speakers the amp is driving and the rca inputs while the amp is off. Now power on the remote. If the prot. light still stays on you will need to varify that the voltage across the ground and b+ terminals is a minimum of 12 volts. If this is true than your amp may be damaged due to shorted parts. Otherwise, try to repower the amp while a speaker is connected and if it is O.K. than there may be a problem with the RCA ground in the head unit or the amplifier.

Prot. light at High vol. (forget Bass CD)


You may have the speakers wired for the wrong impedance.

How many ohms per voice coil?

How many voice coils per speaker?

If the speakers are DVC, are the coils of each speaker wired in series or parallel?

Are the speakers bridged on the amp or one per channel?

Amp wont work jxp340


hi if you got a voltmeter TEST IT ALL ON A LOW LEVEL OF VOLUME!! check the outlets of the amp if there is a signal at all... no? - the amp isnt hooked properly! yes? - check if the volt level on the outlets is higher then the level on the inlets of the amp (the amp is amplifying) no? - the amp isnt hooked properly! or its bad... yes? - connect a speaker to see if its working wont put out a lousy spark? check your system, the problem if probably there... check all the connections, fuses, wires begin from battery and go FWD antill the next device isnt working good luck
