Suonds like the amp is overheating, try turning the peak knob down about 1/4 turn and turn it on and see if it still does it, also see if the fan kicks in, if not that is normally easy to fix. any auto sound system store will have the replacement fan for it. if not take the fan out of it and take it to a radio shack, I know you are going to say " BUT IT IS A RADIO SHACK PART" well the main thing you pay for with everything is the names. the parts are all made over seas and are shipped here on the same container ships, all electronic parts are the same, all you are paying for is the name pioneer, sony, octain etc. they are all the same parts.... hope this will help you.

Refrigerator will not restart for a very long period of time after power cut.


there may be a faulty capacitor for the compressor motor
I would suggest a technician check it out as it should come back working within minutes of a power cut
there will be a short delay until the pressures even out as compressors have difficulty starting under pressure but you delay is extreme and needs checking out.

Try checking your exhaust vent pipe for excessive bends and kinks, make sure there is good strong airflow coming out the exhaust where it exits the building.

Dryer works and cut off


Sounds like heat over load switch is tripping due to lint build up , check around heating coils for lint build up if electric and make sure that you have free air flow from exhaust vent

Amp staying on but cutting out?


Hello Willb2396,

Actually you answered your own question in your paragraph. I draw your attention to your statement of:
"It will work for as long as I'm driving I will park my car, and when I turn it back on every thing will be working just fine and, then a couple minutes later, amp cuts out and won't hit for a couple hours or a couple days.... I have checked the sub multiple times and I don't see it being the sub or the amp"

You are correct it is neither the Sub nor the Amp. The problem is either your voltage regulator or your alternator. one and or the other is going bad.

Here is some advice check your ground wires, the buy a dual alternator kit, it contains the parts you will need to add an additional alternator to your car. This will provide the power you need.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Sound cuts off


OK,  That means there's some kind of crazy fault in the temperature sensing circuits. I'm afraid you'll have to take it someplace and have it looked at for a more thorough diagnosis.

Shutting off and on...


the problem may be due to dry soldering in the power supply stage if it was with the lamp there would be red or green light showing the presence of the power to the tv after making it own some of the components get hot and it will make the the soldering point conectionless and after some time the heat sink get cooled and the soldering point gets connected and u will see the picture again it is a simple problem if u have a soldering iron u make it hot and re solder all the components in the first part of the circuit board and the problem if rectified
