The best solution would be to replace the fuse holder.

If the fuse holder is for the push-in fuses, you can tighten the clips. Remove the amplifier from the power source (<VERY important). Use a small flat-bladed screwdriver to push the rounded part of the clip toward the flat part of the clip (these will be visible when you look into the fuse holder).

If that dosen't work, there may be broken connections on the circuit board.

99 mercury cougar replaced power window motor and switch window still does not work


That doesn't seem possible does it ?

You remove the inner door panel

You think the motor may be bad,so you unplug it,
knowing it is a DC Motor & can be hooked up either
way & will run in either direction
You put 12 volts to it. Doesn't work ,sounds bad,you
install a new one

Now you need power from the switch to run the new motor,
so you work on that
The switch can be disconnected & tested with an OHM Meter
& if worn,you replace that
You checked the fuse before you started & knew that wasn't an issue,
because all the other windows worked

So what did you mis ,short of having no wiring diagram, to make
things a lot easier?

It goes into protection mode. how do i get out of it?


Check your speaker connections and speaker resistance of each speaker with an OHM METER. Most speakers are marked either with a 4 ohm or 8 ohm impedance. You might have a burned voice coil (shorted out) and the amp senses the short and goes into protection mode to protect the amp from being overloaded and burning itself out.

Need a wiring diagram for a american pro 1406


Very simple :

12V+ = Red 8 Gauge Wire to positive battery terminal with a 30 Amp fuse

Ground = Black 8 Gauge wire to non painted surface on chassis of car.

Remote Turn on = Blue / white thin wire from radio's blue/white , this will turn on your amp.

A set of RCA cables which are self explanatory. Out to In or In to Out
Radio to Amp under carpet to back of vehicle along with your blue wire.

Then you have your speaker wires, you hook these up to your subwoofers.

Hope this helps, good luck.

Dont have wire schematic to hook up american pro bass machine limited edition model 1406,need to know how?


You should go to www.the12volt.com they are very helpful and pretty much have a schematic for every single car audio situation and they give you all your options. If they have nothing go to crutchfield.com and go to the learning section then subwoofer and amp wiring. It all depends on the subs that u wanna hook up to it as well as the ohm impedence and the amount of voice coils and so forth they have all of that.

Sounds like the thermal protection on your amp is doing its job. You can put an external fan in to help in cooling, like the crossflow type shown here, or a couple of muffin fans like these (look familiar?). You may have fashion a bracket to mount the fan(s), but that shouldn't be too much of a problem. Many fans are shipped with mounting tabs attached.
