Blowing fuses on the Vosonik VB101PK

I used this amp and subwoofer in my daughter's 1999 Cougar where it worked fine. We just moved it to her 2007 Nissan Altima and hooked it up the same way and the fuse in the amp keeps blowing as soon as the power to the battery is connected. The 12v Power cable to the pattery has power and is heavy duty, the ground is also good (used a meter to check it). The remote turn on power lead has power when the key is turned on and the leads to the sub are also fine. The input is a the high level input from the left rear speaker and grounded to the chassis (just like I did in the Cougar). Interestingly the + and - terminals on the car speaker have continuity??? but not on the Sub Woofer speaker, is this right?. Anyway, I need help understanding why I am blowing fuses, it sounds like a short but everything checks out, Help please!

Ok, always use ground and positive from speakers to the amps +/- . Make sure the amp is not grounded. Some amps are made of metal and will ground itself. When ever any fuses pop, this means that something somewhere got grounded. If using metal srews to mount amp that has a metal casing, chances are you will pop a fuse or two. Be careful ajusting the speaker wires with a metal srewdriver, I've done that alot. "POP"

My # 30 fuse keeps blowing... 99 Mercury Cougar


If it is a 7.5 amp fuse, it powers the charge warning light in the cluster and applies voltage to the alternator to make it charge.
You will need someone to trace that circuit and look for a short to ground. It may be in the cluster or in the harness.
Something else besides the fuse is making the car not start.

My subwoofers cut out after 30 seconds of use but work fine during the 30 seconds...my fuses are all fine and i'm running thick wire with an 80 amp fuse connected off battery...I have a lanzar vibe286...


If it's only your subwoofers cutting out and your speakers are still playing and all, try turning gain down on sub amp and see if that fixes it. I know if I crank my amp too high it kicks itself off to try to keep itself from blowing.

The headlights wont come on. I've changed the fuse. park light work but not the headlights. now car wont turn over at all. tried jumping it & poping it. radio comes on & the inside light is...


Hi, Those have a fuse in the positive battery cable located in the middle of the cable about the center of the firewall on its route to the starter. I would check that fuse before proceeding. Also, those cables are known to go bad, My daughter had a 2000 cougar that kept draing the battery and lights wouldnt work right sometimes. Eventually it fried the alternator. After replacing the alternator and battery cable, it worked fine. Try the fuse first, If it is blown, I would recommend replacing the cable to cure the headlight problem. Mike

I have a cerwin vega subwoofer that keeps blowing the fuse


Take a look at the Voltage selector switch (if one is existing). It may be switched at the wrong position. In that case, I hope that the power supply is not burned out (if it is set at the wrong position).

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Blower motor not working


If you do a voltage check right at the motor you'll know for sure. I usually use my test light or multimeter and poke into wires at motor. If no voltage, start back-tracking which usually means resistor next. If you have 12 volts going to motor & it's not spinning, then I'd be pulling motor. You can manufacture a set of jumper wires to motor connector, and use a 12 volt cordless battery to test motor if you know how.

VB101PK REV 13, AMP WITH SUBWOOFERS


was the amp hooked directly to the box? You probably rattled the power connections from the circuit board like I did on a PT 800 watt amp.but check amp fuses first.
