Audiobahn A3200E Yellow light

I have a Audiobahn A3200E that was working fine until this past thanksgiving. I got in my truck and it just wasn't playing. The green light is still on but now the yellow light is on also. I have a red protection light that is not lite up. I don't know what the yellow light means but it has the letters THER above it. I need to know what the yellow light means and what could be causing it to turn on. I have sent this question to audionbahn with no answer. This is an old amp that was working very well until now.

Re: Audiobahn A3200E Yellow light

THER likely means it thinks it's overheating (thermal protection). This is not a common failure.

Sometimes, low voltage can cause strange problems so you need to check the voltage on the B+ and remote terminals. Place the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amplifier when checking the voltage. The voltage should remain above 11 volts. If it's below 11 volts on either the remote of B+ terminals, you need to trace down the problem. If the voltage remains above 11 volts, the amp probably has an internal fault and will have to be repaired.

BOSS AUDIO SYSTEMS SE950 Car Audio Amplifier: I have a SE950 boss amp, hooked to 2 audiobahn 12"...

Sounds like you are over working this amp for sure.. Upgrading your power wire & battery might help, check your gain level on your amp to. This is not the volume for the amp. Its to get both amp and the cd player on the same page... And most of all if your subs are wired up to .5 ohm stable, see if your amp do the same... My answer to this ?? Upgrade your amp, Boss audio was never a good company to me, but that is my opinon. Audiobahn set up all the way..

The amp is gone. if you have checked and double checked and it is hooked up fine. then the amp is toast. Contact the manufacturer to get a replacement if its under warranty.

    this is happening simply because your ground wire is either going bad, or it has a bad connection to your vehicle. check the spot where your ground wire connects to your car, and look for corrosion or a change of color in the wire. if you find anything like this, i would recommend replacing your entire ground wire. if the wire looks fine, just tighten your connection point, or move it all together.

    Audiobahn A2301Q amp, charred RCA wires

    If the amp goes into protect with the wires unplugged from the board, the amp likely has more serious problems. It may have a shorted power transformer and almost certainly has shorted output transistors. If you think you may want to try to repair it yourself, read through the following page (particularly the information in the yellow box). Respond to this post if you have more questions.

    Protection Light On

    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 didn't fry speakers as well. Please check speakers impedance. A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you
