Power Amp not working When A CD is playing

The problem started when I had to disconnect the car battery to remove the alternator for bearing replacement. Now when the radio is on the Power Amp receives the P Ant signal and turns on, which is fine. But when I switch to CD or Aux, this signal goes away and the Amp switches off.

I've tried al kinds of settings, how can I fix it again?

Re: Power Amp not working When A CD is playing

Hi Cassiel,

You have it wired wrong. The Power Antenna wire is for antenna only. When you go to something other than Radio, the antanna wire signal to turn retract the antennaor turn off your amp. you need to use the Blue wire coming out of your CD player. The intended function of the Blue is remote turn on when every the radio is turned on. This will keep you amp on as long as your Radio is turned on. Change the wires behind the radio from the Power antenna to Blue Remote wire.

Try disconnecting the power to the unit for a couple of minutes. If you don't wanna take it out, you could instead disconnect the car battery completely (disconnecting only the negative pole is enough) for a couple of minutes as well. But please take appropiate caution, if not familiar with electronics, have someone else do it for you ...

CD stuck on Pause

you can try resetting it. there might be a hole about the size of a pencil tip on the sub panel (behind the face). if no reset switch, try disconnection power to the radio. if you can't get to the back of the radio to disconnect the wire harness, try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes.

Cd player plays, but no sound comes out of speakers.

first off the amp gets power straight from the battery. the amp is used to power the subs. the subs are suppose to be connected to the amp only( never the speakers).

for the second part you mostlikely killed the wires. you should get some one to look at it and check the wires. thee speakers might need to be re-wired

Cd player plays, but no sound comes out of speakers.

Look at the enwood. I bet you have the remote wire hooked to the blue wire insted of the blue/white wire. The blue wire goes dad when you play a cd as it is for a power antenna. The blue/white wire is your amp turn on.

Now, if you do not have a blue/whie and only blue, then obviously that circuit in the radio is bad in whch case your only other option s are either connecting it to an accesory fuse or using a toggle switch connected to power.

Pioneer DEH-2100, no power after alternator change.

Take the unit out of the dash. In the back of the unit, disconnect/remove the wiring connector. Underneath a little "flap" on the bottom of this connector there is a small red 10V fuse. That fuse had blown, and when I replaced it the CD?radio worked just fine.

RCA Pre-Out Making Producing a Mumming and a Popping Sound.

the speakers hook to speaker wires not to any thing else no power no negative poles do you have a remote shut off switch connected to amp this would be important to cut off amp

when cut off amp if you still here the humming this can be an indicator of low power being produced by alternator alternators produce 14 anything below 12 would mean replacement of alternator

if alternator fine then you need to find new ground for amp and make sure you have a good ground for sterio this can be checked with a test light
to check a ground all you do is hook gator clip to power then touch test light end to ground on radio end light comes on got a good ground (make sure not to touch any other sterio wires just the ground wire while connected to power to check grounds)
if pulsing in test light on the ground means you have a bad ground
just disconnect move to better ground

check the amp ground the same way as decribed above

Amp goes to protect mode only on cd play

Do you get adequate bass on the radio, or is it a bit quiet on the low-end?
