Try another sub if possible to see whats happening...You might want to check to see if you have a good ground to amp .make sure ground connector is not on top of paint..if it is scrape paint off from body and polish to bare metal.Then reattach ground wire..then retry..

04 Road King light fading


You have either a green corroded wire in the wiring harness, or a short in the headlamps/running lights. It is much easier to find if you have an electronic circut tester. If not slave away with your test light, hooking both to ground terminal to check for power, then reverse to positive terminal to check the ground wire for opens or abrasions. Visually inspect wire harness for signs of wear,corrosion and corrosion. Corrosion will usually show up as a green color around the wire conectors. Due to coper oxide deposits from electrolosis. Hope this helps, I really do. Ride on brother!!!!!!!

Sounds to me like the amp is going into protection mode. Try placing one sub on the amp with very little gain. One of the biggest reason why this happens is because the subwoofers are wired wrong. What is the brand and model number for your amp?

Are you connecting positive to positive and negative to negative from the sub to the amp? If so, try positive to positve (+) in the far left channel and then the negative to negative (-) on the far left channel to. If no luck do the same in the other channel with one sub at a time. Try one sub at a time, Dont try an connect 2 or more subs to one channel as this would cause the amp to go into protect mode (red light you describe). Usually the positive wire has either a line down the wire, writting on it or has a red seperate wire with it when wire end stripped to connect it. Hope this helps and please rate...

Everything did work but kept blowin fuses by the battery. Now a red light stays on, on the amp & the blue/green power lights dont *** on. What should i do?


Check all of your power connections, your speaker connections and battery connections. if all are good and clean (no shorts/wires touching) then try unhooking your speakers and see if the lights come back, if that helps then you have problems with your speakers, if not then amp is bad. I hope this helps ya.

Wondering if non soldered terminals will cause subwoofers to cut in and out...amplifier turns on and stays lit green but subs cut in and out...have had amp and subs switched over from another vehicle in...


You're right; The clip-type or pinch-terminals could have just enough wiggle room to break connection when the box vibrates....causing the In & Out scenario.

You mentioned that the set (amp & subs) were mated in another vehicle, so there's little doubt that the subs are under-rated for the amp, right?
No chance that the sub-level adjustment was cranked up during the move, causing the aging subs to wash out...and you triple-checked the polarities,right?
