First remove the primary fuse on the 12V power wire.
Run a temporary wire from the NEGATIVE terminal of the battery to where the amp is located. You do not need to make a permanent connection, just wrap the wire around the terminal enough to get a good connection. Use a multimeter set to the lowest OHMS scale and test between your proposed ground connection and the negative battery terminal. A good ground will indicate near "zero" (or very near zero). If you don't get a "zero" reading, try to find a screw or bolt going into the metal of the vehicle. Again, the meter will read "zero" when you have located a good ground. Reattach the amp ground terminal to the good ground, remove the temporary test wire, reinstall the primary fuse and test the amp. If it was just the ground, you've fixed it.
