Since it's an intermittant problem and a relatively expensive amplifier, you should have it checked by a qualified tech. If you keep trying to power it up, it will eventually blow out the power supply transistors which will add as much as $100 to the repair bill.

Would using a 80 amp fuse instead of a 60 amp fuse in a 1993 Geo Metro cause problems with the starter?


It shouldn't be. The starter is going to pull as many amps as it needs. The fuse is to protect the wiring and keep the car from catching fire in case the starter fails and tried to pull more current than it should. That being said you need to change it back. 80 amps is 33% more current than what that circuit is designed to carry. Being that it's a 1993 you should probably be on your 3rd starter by now

2002 tracker,keeps blowing 15 amp fuse that runs heatr fan and lets car shift out of park


I looked at the wiring diagrams and those two circuits should be on two different fuses.
The shift lock solenoid is powered by the 10amp turn signal fuse and the 15amp stop light fuse. If the fuse blows when you put it in park, I would say the shift lock solenoid is the problem and the stop light fuse is the one that is blowing.
The heater fan and relay are powered by a 60amp fuse and a 15amp fuse but not the stop light fuse.
Its possible there is a short some where that has connected these two circuits.
You could disconnect the shift lock solenoid to see if the fuse still blows.

I HAVE A PPI PCX 2200 THAT IS NOT GETTING ANY POWER AT ALL I CHECKED ALL FUSES STILL NO POWER


1.verify connections...Make sure your ground wire is grounded to a location on the body where you will sand the paint away to make good metal to metal contact. 2.with a volt meter check for battery voltage on the red wire of the amp as close to the amp as possible.verify that your remote or trigger wire from the radio (blue wire) id connected to the remote terminal of the amp.. turn on key switch, turn on radio and see if amp powers up. if no then verify 12 vdc at the remote terminal of amp, very 12vdc at red power wire. verify ground. If all this is good i would suspect you have a faulty amp.

I just replaced an amp and now the inline fuse by the battery keeps blowing


Most likely you have your power and ground connections reversed on the amp. That will cause the fuse to blow immediately upon contacting the two sides of the fuse. If the fuse stays intact for a short while but pops after turning the amp/car on and your connections are correct then there's a problem with the amplifier and it either needs to be serviced or replaced.

My stop hazard fuse keeps blowing on my 95 chevrolet k2500 Cheyenne. I do not have cruise control. i have disconnected the break relay and my turn/hazard switch. It still blows, yet when i unplug my break...


check the AMPS for all your fuses sometime a low amps fuse in the wrong slot can blow otherones. also sometime you can increase the fuse that keep blowing. try that first if that do not work you might need to run and electrican test on your fuse box to check if you have a short. also check your fuseable link on the fuse panel under the hood.

I got a ppi d1000/1 amp cant get any sound out of it?


Make sure your remote wire is hooked up in the right spot, also check your rca plugs and consider replacing them, check all fuses to make sure their not blown, a loose or not good ground wire or power supply wire will also cause this problem. If a power wire has a cut in it, that will also cause fuses to blow, as well as with a ground wire cut, ur amp will not be properly grounded.

Blowing of fuses


The reason your blowing fuses is the amp needs at the least a 150 amp fuse on the wire that runs to your bat. There are fuse blocks that you can put 4 40amp fuse and theres the high dollor ones that you can put all the way to 200amp. When you trun up your amp its drawing to much current for the little 40 amp fuse that you have and will blow it everytime. I recomend Running a 4 gage wire to bat and ground with same. Get you a 150 or above amp fuse from a car audio shop somewhere. anyway sounds like from what you decribed, theres nothing wrong with your amp just the wires and fuse are not big enouf to handle the current that your amp pulls.

Fuses


If you connect the fuses in parallel yes. You can use 12v circuit breakers as long as they are the same fast/medium/slow blow speed as the fuses the manufacturer recommends.

Thing is that most standard fuses are not made to exact standards and one of the two might blow earlier than the other which then in turn wil blow. I would go for either a 40 amp single fuse made for something other than a car situation and place that in the power line or get a 12v circuit breaker

If the fuse only blows after the remote voltage is applied, the output transistors are likely shorted. To eliminate the speakers as a possible fault, disconnect the speaker wires from the amp. Also disconnect the signal cables.

 

If the fuse blows without remote voltage applied, either the power supply transistors are blown or the B+ and ground are reversed (or they may have previously been reversed).

Blowing fuses under hood but nothing looks smoked in the amp


Sounds like the amp is fried, most likley in one or both of the output sections. Good luck.
