SOURCE: alpine v12 amp no power

its your fuse box. i would bypass the fuse box and wire this amp directly to the battery via monster cable. make sure you attach a 30wieght fuse to the monster cable that is running from the battery to your amp. ground the amp against the trunk. scrape the paint of a section and drill a hole in the trunk. use this for the ground for you amp. this will fix the no power issue.

I am getting a DC error on my alpine cde-102 head

Hello christo12385,

The DC error is most likely caused by a shorted or grounded speaker wire. Check all speaker wires, correct the problem, and then go into the sound setup settings and reset the POWER IC to ON.

Hope this helps.

Cant turn off

I would imagine that there is a power button on the device itself, however the problem lies in the wiring that was done to install the radio, there is an accessory wire, normally red, that needs to be hooked up to a wire from the car that alternates on and off with the ignition, you can solve this with a volt meter, touching it to wires to see how they react with the ignition switch.
