Question about Car Audio & Video
Do you have the remote turn-on lead hooked up?
There should be 3 wires on the power side of the amplifier.
Ground - to the car chassis
Power - to the car battery
Remote - to the remote turn on lead from the head unit. (this emits a 12V signal to a relay inside the amplifier for it to turn on when the radio does)

I didn't hear you mention a remote wire? If you have a good positive and ground then should be good to go. The remote wire tells the amp to turn on/off with the ignition or with the radio depending on where you wire it to. Most times the remote wire on your aftermarket radio (small thin wire usually blue) is connected to the remote line of your amp. There is none on a factory radio. If you have a factory radio you can run the remote from your amp to the radio fuse on your car and it will turn on/off with the ignition of your car. You can test the amp first by runinng the power wire on the amp directly to the remote terminal, it should light up. Do not leave it this way as the amp will stay on and will drain your battery..

Yeah I had the same problem, I hooked it all up right but the protect light wouldnt go off, I kept wondering why. The battery was to week so the green power light wouldnt go on.
But my problem is that I have this buzzing or humming noise to whatever I hooked up my amplifier up to? How do I get the buzzng noise to stop?
