Re: installing a car alarm instructions

I can provide you with a wire diagram that gives you color, description and location of the wires in the vehicle. Is that what you want? As far as brand, did you have one in mind? The wire printout would have to be e-mailed to you as I can not post it here due to the size of the words (too many). Let me know.

I wanna put it into my car myself but dont know how and was hoping for a lil instruction

you will need a amp install kit witch comes with a 15 ft patch cable power line for amp and a blue line for remote. these wires run from the radio to the amp. The blue wire is called remote it turns the amp on or off depending on the radio state. the patch cable is rca jacks on both ends the back of the radio should have the female part of the rca jacks hanging from it. The other end goes into the amp. and last but not least the heavy red wire will go from the battery to the amp usually there is a fuse holder that you need to put between the battery and the amp. As far as grounding just ground the amps negative to the car chasis some where.

Good Luck Hope this helps

I have a 1600 watt amplifier wiring kit w/0.5f digital stiff cap and it has no instructions how can i get some?

Place the amp where you are going to permanently mount it. The cap. should be as close to the amp as possible. Run the positive cable from the pos. terminal of the battery to the pos. terminal on the cap. Then from the cap's pos.terminal run a cable to the pos. terminal on the amp. Dont install the fuse into the fuse holder just yet. Make sure you place the fuse holder at most 10 inches or closer to the battery. Find a good ground point to run the negative cable to the cap. make this one as short as posible, use any good solid metal part of the car's chassis or bolt that runs into the body. Run another ground cable from that piont or nearby point to the amp's negative terminal. run the rca cables from the back of the head unit outputs to the inputs on the amp. Then run the small gauge remote wire from the amp remote output from the head unit to the remote turn-on terminal on the amp. run your speaker wires from your amp to your speakers. Install the fuse, it will spark a tiny bit when installed, its normal thats just your stiff cap and the caps inside your apm charging. Usually you charge the cap before you introduce it into the system to prevent that spark but a cap that size doesn't create a huge spark. good luck

Can anybody help me besides best buy for $80 an hour??

First of all if everything is wired right then your amp is defective. If you have The B+ wire from amp to the fuse block then to the positive battery post, Then if you have a good solid ground going to the amp, and you have 12 volts running to the remote on the amp when you turn the head unit on or a switch for the remote turn on, then you should have no problems.For one, I would test the voltage at the amp with car off and key off. Take the probes of the meter and touch them to the amps ground and positive terminals and check those readings. If ok turn key on and do the same thing, leave head unit off. If ok turn on head unit and test voltage at the positive and remote terminals using the amps ground. If you have any problems before the last test I said to do then thats where you should start to find the problem. Otherwise if the power drops it maybe a bad ground or else you'd start burning up fuses. Let me know what you found out or if you figured it out. I would like to know what it was. I own a car audio/video install business as well as amp repair. Send me a message so I can find out what it was please.

I need installation instructions for a MTX thunder 280

BATT = 12v positve constant
GND = 12v negative or ground
REM. = 12v positive switched or remote wire.

The remote wire is most commonly found on aftermarket CD players. It's typically in the main wire harness. The most common color of this wire is blue with a white stripe.

Car alarm in-line fuse

What type of alarm system is it? The size of the fuse varies slightly depending how extravagant the alarm is. You could try to low ball it and if it pops the fuse then get a slightly bigger one. You might start out at 15 amps. BUT, if you can tell me the make and model of the alarm then I might find out the correct size. I hope I can help.

Amp wont power on

The only effective way to troubleshoot this is with a digital multimeter. Test for voltage on the power terminal and the remote terminal (using the ground terminal for your black probe). If you have voltage on both terminals, check the amp's built-in fuses; if they're good, then you must have a defective amp. If you have voltage on the remote terminal, but none on the power terminal, check your fuse and fuse holder at the front. It's not unusual to have a blown or defective fuse that looks okay.
