You need to confirm that you have a good ground, and 12v on the terminals of the amp.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead 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.

03 jetta shut off while driving.

Check the load reduction relay. I had this happen twice and repaired twice on my TDI mk IV. It throws no codes and almost has to be witnessed by a mechanic to be believed.

My insignia amp wont work

Try removing the capacitor and discharging it with a .5 watt (radio shack) light bulb, and then reconnecting it in the same fashion.(before hooking it back up to the amp place it in line with the capacitor until the cap reads 12v with a multimeter or capacitor display) The capacitor will conduct but not store a charge for the amp if not properly charged before making the amp/capacitor conection. and therefore shut down or not start at all.

Kenwood hac 9152d, was working fine now doesnt output any sound

Check the fuse on the amp.

My girlfriend had the same thing, light was on, no sound whatsoever. The fuse on the amp had blown, but I'm guessing some current must have made it through to just put the light on. Make sure you have a 40 amp fuse in it, that's what it needs.

Good luck

Purchased a sanyo vpc-e870 yesterday ..let t he battery charge over night & 10 hours today...will not let me get past the date & time..shuts off 30seconds after i press ok?

If you read the instructions, you MUST use the external charger that comes with the camera to charge the battery, the camera wont charge the battery. The DC jack on the camera just powers the camera from the AC adapter, but doesnt charge battery
