SOURCE: my amp wont go past protect mode

I had the same problem. be sure to change all transistors cause once one goes the rest useally goes right along with it... replaceing one or two transistors will not do the trick, cause once you power up again the rest of them will go, & you will have to repeat the prosses

SOURCE: the amp turns on but goes to protection mode

Have you checked the REM wire, if it is the wiring may have gotten fried.

Or you may need to get new parts replaced within the amp.

Both issues happened to me.

SOURCE: Ground zero amplifier overheating and going into protect.

Since you changed the amperage of the fuses and the cable, you allowed the internal problems of the
amplifier to get worse than they were before the original fuses started blowing.

A fuse is a safety instrument that blows instead of your amplifier.

The problem is NOT the fuses frequently blowing, as such events warn you of internal problems with
the amplifier which you should have had serviced at the time to prevent them getting worse.

It is very much like the persons who replace the fuses in their household wiring with pennies, to prevent
frequent fuse replacement only to have their house burn down from overloaded circuitry.

Service your amplifier immediately.

Revert to the original amperage on all fuses in your vehicle to prevent a car fire.

SOURCE: I have a power acoustik A3000DB 3000W Mono Class D Series Amplier

I HAVE TWO OF THESE AMPLIFIERS MYSELF. IT IS NO DOUBT AN INTERNAL PROBLEM BECAUSE THROUGH THE PROCESS OF ELIMINATION, YOU HAVE DONE ALL THAT YOU CAN DO AND IT POINTS TO THE AMPLIFIER ITSELF. AS FOR THE CAUSE FOR ITS FAILURE, THERE ARE MANY, BUT IT IS MORE THAN LIKELY IN THE INPUT CIRCUITS AS FAULTS IN THE POWER SUPPLY OR OUTPUT SECTION WOULD MORE THAN LIKELY SHOW UP TRIPPING THE PROTECTION CIRCUITRY. IT WILL SIMPLY HAVE TO BE SERVICED. I AM LISTED IN THE REPAIR DIRECTORY OF THIS SITE UNDER THE ZIP-CODE 70360. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE...V

My audiopipe GM-1502 amp went into protect but i checked the circuit board and nothing seems to be blown or burnt but it won't come out of protect what could be the problem


If your voltage is good and you disconnected the speakers then you have damaged components on the board. You cannot tell they are bad by looking at thwm. The amp needs repair.

FLUTTERING TEMP GAUGE I8N 2003 SATURN VUE


Well son, there are MANY reasons that might cause "fluttering" in your gauge. Mine started doing that, then I started getting a warning LIGHT for overheating. My solution for that was a fault in my fan. There are 2 speeds on my VUE'S electric fan. The one that required attention was speed/high (the speed/low was working). If your getting an intermittent short, watch both the temperature and fuel gauges to make sure it's not a real (both will do the "fluttering at the same time if it's faulty short) overheating problem. If you have an OCD-2 reader, plug it in under the driver's dashboard and go to function "live" read the engine temperature. If that's normal it will be between 120F-200F.
Faults may be relays in the under-hood fuse panel (there either good or bad, you can't see anything like other fuses) and there are the 30 amp or 10 amp fuses inside the same fuse block for that electric fan.. I've found that if I open the hood and start your car, after it warms up, there are tree things that could happen.
1: the low fan starts up, then start your A/C, the high fan speed comes on (normal, check your temp gauge).
2: After you warm it up, the low speed fan starts up, but with the A/C on, the high speed fan isn't coming on (bad high speed fuse or relay).
3: after warm up, the low speed fan doesn't come on, but starting the A/C the low speed fan comes on (bad sensor I think).

I've had a ghost in my VUE since I bought it, gone through 3 computers, CVT sensors, key won't turn without destroying the key. One time, I used the horn to get some deer off the road and the damned thing wouldn't shut off. While I was under the hood trying to get it to turn off, TWO cops stopped, they shined their flashlights on the fuse block and one on the diagram for me to pull the right fuse. I took it out, plugged it back in and it worked again! The shop didn't find a thing wrong with it, but the thing works still.s

Power amp goes into protect mode when turn on


Do you have a load (speakers) connected to the amp? Some amps shut down when there is no load connected?

My audiopipe amp went into protect mode randomly. even though i have to prevent fuses on my power wire


Ok, for starters you need to clarify if you are saying you have "two" fuses on your power wire. That's what I get from your statement. My question would be why? As long as you place the initial fuse within 12 inches of the battery, you're cool. The purpose is to stop the flow of power in the event of a spike so that your power wire doesn't fry and cause a fire under your vehicle carpet. Second, your amplifier should have fuses that trip when this occurs too. If this has been occuring since you installed the amp, you need to recheck all your wiring (I recommend removing the extra inline fuse). Two things trigger an amps safety mode. 1- an amperage fluctuation or overload. It will sense when there is to high or too low of an amperage flow. Too much fluctuation can damage internal components. 2- Your amp is malfunctioning. If you have an internal short, this could occur. (really it's tied to the first one because it is sensing that the short is allowing a full flow of power at the short, thus causing a fluctuation). Start with the ground wire. Most amperage problems happen because of a poor ground. Think of power like water. If you have a good flow coming in, but poor flow going out, it gets kinda....backed up. This causes a fluctuation of the amperage since the electrons cannot flow properly. Setting off the protection. The other thing to thing about is the correct guage of wire. If you have too small guage wire, the amperage will dip low during heavy usage, causing the other extreme of the fluctuation.

Check what you have. If you are running a load of 50-65 amp (look at the fuses on your amps and add them up), then 4 guage is good from 13-22 feet. If you are running any higher than that, you will need 2 or 0 guage wire. You will also need to make sure to have a fuse slightly higher that the amperage draw you are expecting. As always, make sure your power and ground wire match. I have seen alot of kits made with smaller guage ground wire. They work of the premise that the shorter distance produces less resistance, thus requiring smaller guage wire. I say why risk it. Always use a multimeter when checking for proper ground placement. Also, if you are going to use aluminum or tinned wire (trust me, it's out there), you will need to increase the guage of the wire.

Happy hunting

I have a Lanzar 4000 watt amplifier hooked up to 2 12inch MA Audio subs. When I crank my car the green power light on the amplifier comes on, but after a second or two it changes to protection mode. I have...


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Time to get an old school Opti Drive. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. lanzar-4000-watt-amplifier-hooked-up-2-shonxoarcym4awy4zl1imx4o-2-0.jpg Lanzar

KEEPS GOING INTO PROTECTION MODE


make sure that your running heavy enough gauge wire from the battery to the amp. make sure wires to bridge the amp is correct and the av wires from the deck are the right gauge should be like 8 gauge wires.

Amp heats up and goes into protect mode


Hi Saint108. You're describing it well, and i know what the problem is already. The MA audio amp, can't hold with a 2 ohm load. It's too low for that amp, that's for sure. Those are budget amps and they are not well built enough to handle low ohm setups like that. It's overheating and there's no ways around it.. Other than wiring your subs differently ! Just wire your sub directly (not in parallel) in a 4 ohm load, you will notice it will stop overheating that much. Do it quick, you'll most likely fry your amp giving it such hard work !! The HUM you're hearing could be related to it also. Try that, and keep me posted on the status. Thanks ! Cheebster.
