Re: Red light on the amp.

Have you checked your speakers to make sure they're connected to the amp (a wire could have broken or pulled loose)?

Have you confirmed that you have a good signal reaching the amp?

The red light isn't always a good indicator that the amp is functioning properly. If you have speakers connected to the amp and have a good signal feeding the amp, the amp may have failed.

Tc 8001 red light

on some amps there is a duel light. red and green usually. red means it is in protect mode or you didn't hook up your remote wire. if in protect mode, it could mean a number of things. did you hook it up with speakers and everything?

There's a flashing green and red light when my car is on and the sub attached to the amp is making a heartbeat like noise when the light goes green and then the light goes red right away. everything is...

Check the wires for short circuiting at the car body or speaker wires. Triple check really everything.
Make sure the connectors are 100% connected to the wires. There maybe some resitance if the amp isn't getting enough power from the battery.

Kicker impulse 254 amp red light on top?

1st check all of your wiring, make sure the remote wire is hooked up, check to see it the RCA's are hooked up. I know this sounds stupid, but i've done it a thousand times, check to see if you hooked up the speakers. If you checked all of those and still nothing, double check your ground. Make sure where you have it grounded, you have all the paint sanded away and its a good grounding point. The red light on the top of the amp, its not a protection light is it??

Have power but no sound

U may have blown the High Out put.

Not sure but is the Protection Led light on the AMP. if it has one it should be green if everything is Fine. Red or Flashing Red is not good.

U can test it has a low in out put . But if only has RCA out then u may want check the Fuses inside the AMP... Be careful because if u open it up after it was just turn on u will get a ZAP if the amp is not fully discharged.Look for any burnt Resistors etc,

Let me know if this works!!

Visonik 350watt Amp Doesnt Come On....

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter probe on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red probe alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Red light

something is shorted in the circuit, or your subs. unhook the subs first and try it again, if it is still in protect then it is most likely the output transistors.
