One obvious thing you could try is unhooking it from the battery and listening to your stereo at a set volume. Then reconnect it, carefully of course and listen to it at the same volume.

Gmc yukon denali reduced engine power stability system disabled


I had the same problem in my Yukon Denali And after 4 throttle body's, replacing gas pedal, rewiring the grounds replacing sensors, took it to not one but two GMC dealerships who were useless they can't fix their own trucks they're not the brightest !!!! After thousands of dollars I found a mechanic very familiar with this issue you want the solution it will cost ya 500$ for me to tell ya!! Just kidding I know how frustrating this problem is okay here is the fix the problem is these electric throttle bodies are GARBAGE!!!!!!! Don't matter what u do or what u replace it will come back on unless u convert your electric throttle body to the old cable throttle the actual fix was 900$ but I spent thousands and thousands trying to fix it!!! Please save your money and tell ur mechanic u want to convert to the old cable throttle!!! Gmc is well aware of the problem but won't fix it for u cuz they're useless

My Friend put A Rockford Fosgate P250.2 Amp in his car and while hooking it up he forgot to connect the ground but still got power to the amp but no sound from the subs and the thermal light is on. so he...


Your friend has damaged his amp. The power light coming on means that the amp's power indicator LED is at least working. That light is only there to tell you that the amp is receiving power on it's 12 volt rails, not that it's necessarily using the power in any way other than warming up the amp's internal circuitry. When you say the amp gets power, I'm not clear on whether you mean the amp works in that fashion, or there's just a red LED glowing but nothing else happens. The amp needs to be repaired, and I would suggest to him to not apply power to it again until it is checked by a professional. The power supply has probably been damaged, and it's possible, depending on how the amp was mounted, that it was searching for ground through the amp's chassis if it was screwed into metal at its mounting location. All that seems certain as of now is that the LED works, but nothing else, unfortunately.

I have a performance teknique ICBM power 4000 watt 1 ohm when I put the load to 1 ohm it goes to protect **** at a 4 ohm load it slaps dosnt clip are anyting is it a power problem


check that load with an ohm meter. a 1 ohm load is very low and just the wires would increase the load. also as speakers age they can go lower on the actual ohm being used so even if the circuit would seem to add up to one ohm it may be even lower. If the amp is going to protect mode the load is just to great and it doesn't want to burn itself up. a good meter will tell you the real ohm load at the amp. make sure you get a good connection between the meter and the load. don't overload the amp it is not safe. also some speakers are "power hungry" or less effective at using the amps watts of power

No LED power lights go on


the light with the power light(middle) is a blue/purple faint light try checking it out at night.The squiggy(as heat waves) will only light when the amps shuts down due to thermal protection(wait for it to cool). The bolt/yellow (short circuit) will light when there is an electrical overload in any of the wires(check +ve leads).

1997 Buick LeSabre: Can't tell if my transmission is slipping or


If you have a steady misfire on your vehicle, 96 and newer vehicles have a misfire detection where it will actually flash the Check Engine Light telling you that you are doing lots of damage to the Catalytic Converter. If Engine light isn't flashing providing it comes on and does actually work when you first put your ignition into on position, then you probably don't have a miss. Spark tester in-line on each spark plug wire if you are still unsure.

Protection light keeps coming on


Check the wiring between the sub and the amplifier. That's seems to be the only thing left that could cause a problem. If it's shorted to ground or pinched so the conductors are shorted together, it could cause the symptoms you listed.

Amp not putting out sound


This is not a problem that a normal comsumer should try to repair themselves. It's time to take it to a pro. It sounds like you have blown out at least one of your output channels. If you are getting any red light at all then the good news is that the power supply section of the amp is probably still good. About half of all the electronics in your amp is for the power supply section. The other half is for the actual amplifiers of the amp. Good luck, I hope it's not too bad.
